Quotes from the news wire:
The reference I made to a woman’s ‘prime’ this morning was inartful and irrelevant, as colleagues and loved ones have pointed out, and I regret it, a woman’s age doesn’t define her either personally or professionally.
I believe that women of any age… can do whatever they set their minds to, the people I am closest to in this organization are women.
I’m sorry that I said it, and I certainly see why people found it completely misguided.
Quite honestly, I think this is a media-manufactured story.
The President is saying exactly what most of the world feels about Vladimir Putin, now, The President did not in that speech saying that Vladimir Putin should be removed or we're going to take The President out of power. The President said, ‘ This man should not remain in power. ’ What person in the right mind thinks that someone who bombs innocent people, children, a country that is in unprovoked war should remain in power ?
Nothing happens and they just move on to the next conspiracy theory, it is never going to end and guess what? People who want to believe that BS are going to believe it.
It's been a really tough day, today, and a tough few days for us here at CNN, so the truth is that we're all heartbroken because we lost our leader here. We lost a man who was the backbone, the glue and the spirit of this company, the man who I personally credit with change in my life, the man who believed in me when nobody else did. He is the reason that you have a gay, Black man with two hours of primetime, a show with my name on it, the only anchor of color in primetime on cable news, think about that. You want to talk about diversity? Here it is.
So for all of you at home watching, you should know that I and my colleagues will continue to do exactly what he would want us to do. And that is to do what I'm going to do right now: deliver the news, no matter what it is, without fear or favor, so, thank you, Jeff Zucker, for everything you did for everyone at this network and for what you did to the entire country -- for the entire country.
This totally tastes like home, this is a recipe that's going to put a little meat on your bones and give you some booty.

And it’s not that the Republicans are doing this and that. They’re better at the messaging than you are! That’s what it is! It’s not the Republicans’ fault, it’s your fault. You have yourself to blame, Democrats. Get it together.
Democrats get your butts in gear and get passionate about saving this damn country! You’re not doing it. You’re weak. You are weak. You are weak.
When you say I’m going to have a press conference, I’m inviting the media to do this, I’m going to actually go into the press room with Jen Psaki and I'm going to show up there sometimes and surprise people and guess what? I’m going to pull the nation in with my narrative, i’m going to tell them what is in the bill. I’m going to tell them what I’m selling that is going to help them … I’m not just going to sit back and expect the news media to do it for me because it’s not our job to sell the narrative … It’s not our job to sell your agenda for you.
If you get someone in a ruby red state or rural state to understand that … then it’s a win for you, republicans … are going around the country and they are winning with a lie. They’re able to get people on their side with a total lie and Democrats can’t get people motivated with the truth that will help them.
You would think entire cities are just, you know, enthralled in fights, fires, and whatever.
I don't know if you can find a larger a-- than Jim Acosta. CNN has been engaging in a cover-up of violent crime for quite a while, they did it for political reasons. They did it because they wanted Biden in … Those two clowns Cuomo and Lemon were mocking people who were concerned. They were laughing about it.
You mean for the F.D.A.?
You mean for the FDA?
It's been really, really great. This is the last night that will be ‘CNN Tonight with Don Lemon,’ so, I appreciate all the years of ‘CNN Tonight with Don Lemon.’ But changes are coming. And I will fill you in.
Everybody, calm down, i didn't say I was leaving CNN, I just said that it was the end of an era for ‘CNN Tonight with Don Lemon.’.
Maxine Waters is not the issue here.
So if that means that cable news ratings go down? Aww. So I’m not really that concerned about it. I would prefer that my ratings go down and Trump not be in office than my ratings be sky-high and him be there. That’s the honest truth. encyclopedia.
How refreshing, how human, how compassionate, how American.
She was explaining how, what she thought was going on in her particular situation.
I do n’t understand how this is a story. How is she supposed to know who was on the other side of the door ? How is she supposed to know how many people were on the other side of the door ? This has nothing to do with anything AOC or whatever, but I kept trying to figure out how the people that were actually involved in that siege, and all the chaos, could be criticizing someone else who was involved in it, she was explaining how, what she thought was going on in her particular situation.
The rioting has to stop, its showing up in the polling. Its showing up in focus groups. ... it is the only thing right now that is sticking.
Stop hiding behind the First Amendment.
I have saidI dont think that you should really listen to what he says, you should listen to what the experts say, im not actuallysure, if you want tobehonest, that we should carry that live. I think we should run snippets. I think we should do it afterwards and get the pertinent points to the American people because hes never, evergoing to tell you the truth.
I never said I thought it was terrible.Im telling you were in the middle of a pandemic right now, were in the middle of a pandemic and everytime this president comes out, he gives inaccurate information.

Im surprised you dont understand that !
Read the report, just read it, just read it.
Im just going to be honest. Megyn is 47 years old. She is our age, there has never been a time in that -- in her 47 years -- that blackface has been acceptable. I wonder how much diversity she has on her staff. I dont know; Im not there. But I would imagine theres not a lot because people would have informed her. This is what people of the larger culture dont understand about racism and about privilege.
Lets talk about his imaginary Latin-American migrant conspiracy, this is part of a long history of him making things up about the caravan and the border crisis.

The president says the GOP is going to be the party of health care, then why is his Justice Department saying the Affordable Care Act should be struck down? The president has said again and again that he wanted to protect pre-existing conditions. Is this yet another lie from the president?
This is an America that can be deeply unfair, where hard work doesnt necessarily pay off, where if you have money, you can buy anything because just about everything is for sale, including integrity for sale, a whole lot of people have real good reason to believe the system is rigged against them. Listen, this is what Donald Trump tapped into. And in a lot of ways, guess what? He was right.
We are all safe. And we thank the Coast Guard and law enforcement for stopping this in time.

You can talk to me.
I think it’s heading into November and I think the president realizes his base, this is something that animates his base and he’s going to continue on with it, if the president cares about Americans' First Amendment rights, and his own First Amendment rights, and the rights of his people who support him, then he should care about the First Amendment rights of those people who have chosen to kneel during the national anthem.
Real patriotism is understanding what the Constitution means for all Americans and abiding by the Constitution, not doing some false presentation that you pretend to be a patriot while other people are around you, going to the concession stands, getting beer or fights in the stands or talking to each other with their baseball caps on. That is not real patriotism. Real patriotism is understanding that all of us are created equal and we have the choice to stand, kneel or sit or even attend a football game if we choose to.
