“If something had happened to that 4-year-old boy in the gorilla pen, you know what the catcalls would be? ‘Why didn’t you shoot the gorilla? Why did you wait?’ So the zoo people, they’re not gonna win no matter what. But my guess is they feel worse than anybody about this, the people that had to do it.”

“Nothing’s real. Nothing is what it seems to be. Everything’s managed, everything’s PR, everything’s buzz. Everything. Trump is not. Trump is, for better or worse, real. There’s nothing real about Mrs. Clinton. There is nothing real about her campaign. There’s nothing real about these things that are stage managed and produced for public consumption.”

“If Trump were any other Republican, the Drive-Bys would have practically destroyed him by now and they’d be worried about rehabbing Hillary’s image and building her up. But she’s so unexciting, she’s so dull, she’s so scandal ridden, they’ve got nothing to work with.  All they can do is try to destroy Trump, but they don’t know how. Because they didn’t make Trump, they can’t destroy Trump.”

“Trump’s constant access to media and Trump’s unpredictability is frustrating Hillary and the Drive-Bys’ capacity to shape and control the narrative. They are unable to write the daily soap opera script as they have become accustomed to being able to do.” 

“Hillary is frustrating, ’cause there’s nothing to cover. All there is with Hillary is emails and shady financial dealings and Mao pantsuits and basic incompetence and boredom and a total lack of excitement.”  

“All three hours entirely worth it each and every day here at the Excellence in Broadcasting Network.”

Hillary doesn’t know how to go out and write her own narrative of the day. She doesn’t know whether to focus on herself, or to criticize Trump, or to go after Crazy Bernie. She doesn’t know what to do. And the press doesn’t, either.”

“This has become a pop culture campaign. Like it or not, that’s what it is. And that’s why so many in the political world are having trouble understanding it, dealing with it, being involved with it, defining it, what have you.” 

“Everybody dealing with Trump — including Bill Kristol and everybody else trying to take him out — is making the big mistake of trying to plug Trump into the age-old political handbook. Trump’s not part of that. You don’t deal with Trump in the standard, political handbook way on policy and issues and things like that.” 

“There have been countless efforts to destroy this program, take me out. But they haven’t succeeded. And, as such, I don’t have any real competition. And so the media can’t hype competition. They’ve tried. They’ve hyped everybody that’s been thrown up to wipe me out, and it’s all fizzled out.” 

“Hillary doesn’t have any natural talents. Hillary doesn’t have any natural connection to people. Hillary doesn’t have any charisma, magnetism. All of that has to be manufactured by the media.” 

“With Trump out there all the time, spontaneous and entertaining, the press has to do something to keep Hillary in the game. So they hyper-script her appearances, they hyper-script the coverage, all with limited availability because Hillary has to maintain some restraint. Otherwise, it’s a potential total implosion.”   

“You heard of dead man walking; Hillary is deadly dull walking. She is a walking, talking embodiment of corruption and phoniness. And the more exposure she gets, the more her poll numbers plunge. The more exposure she gets, the more it’s clear she can’t put Crazy Bernie away.” 

“The Democrats in the race are such subpar candidates that ratings go down when coverage of them goes up. In fact, part of Trump’s schtick now is to make fun of Hillary’s penchant for screeching on the stump.”  

“In terms of media coverage, Trump doesn’t have any competition. Hillary is no competition for Trump. If Trump were a radio show and Hillary were a radio show, he would be me, and she would be Air America.” 

“Hillary Clinton is one of the most boring, dryball, dull, uninteresting people in the world getting $21 million in two years for making speeches?  The world’s greatest entertainers don’t get that! They don’t get anywhere close to that!” 

“Bottom line: No one really cares what Hillary Clinton is saying because what she says is never interesting. It’s only how badly she says it, and she’s plainly self-conscious about it, meaning Trump is living rent-free in her head.”   

“Hillary is not gonna be honest about what she stands for. She can’t be! If she were to be honest about it, she’d have to just literally trounce Obama each and every day, on the economy and a number of other things that she can’t do being of the same party.” 

“If Hillary Clinton had given Black Lives Matter $6 million? I don’t think there’s any risk of that. I think Hillary Clinton doesn’t give money to anybody. In that world, Hillary Clinton is a total taker. She’s not a donor. So that would never happen. Bank on it.” 

“I just don’t think there was any way that boy was gonna get out of there alive short of what happened. And I think the people that are being forgotten in all this are the zoo people that had to do it. I think in all the agony that’s out there today, the people that run that zoo that had to do this are probably feeling the worst of anybody, ’cause that gorilla was part of their lives.” 

“We humanize all animals, particularly those that we can go watch, maybe even pet, get close to.  And we attend to associate — some of us do, some people transfer their own traits to animals and think that there’s no difference other than maybe intelligence or what have you.” 

“I’m the biggest animal lover you’ll ever meet.” 

“I know a lot of people want to believe that whoever Harambe’s friends were on the zoo staff could have walked in there, you know, with a plate of food or what have you, or just with good vibes, ‘Hey, Harambe, how are you? You know that thing you have, that’s not supposed to be here. Hand him over,’ whatever they were gonna do to get the gorilla to hand over his toy. It was not going to happen.”  

“Trump’s not somebody who thinks that he has to downplay himself in order to be polite. He likes who he is, he’s proud of being who he is, and he likes being himself. And that makes somebody a… I think in this day and age, that alone could do it, in terms of defining a leader.”

“There’s always going to be a political component in everything because politics is part of everything. Whether people like it or not, want to admit it or not, that’s the truth.” 

“I am opposed to liberalism. And I am opposed to the seductive ways that liberalism corrupts people — innocent people — into assuming positions that are detrimental to American society and the culture and the country the large.” 

“We don’t have the ability to destroy the environment. If a president ordered the world’s most intelligent scientists to destroy the ozone, they couldn’t do it. If a president or the pope ordered the smartest scientists in the world to destroy the climate of the earth, they could not do it. They wouldn’t know where to begin.”
