“I look so old John Boehner already invited Netanyahu to speak at my funeral.”
“Some people still say I’m arrogant, aloof, and condescending. Some people are so dumb.”
“Dick Cheney says he thinks I’m the worst president of his lifetime, which is interesting because I think Dick Cheney is the worst president of my lifetime.”
On Ted Cruz comparing himself to Galileo: “Now that’s not really an apt comparison. Galileo believed th earth revolved around the sun. Cruz believes that the earth revolves around Ted Cruz.”
