Quote of the Day:

“Trump isn’t Jesus.” 

Montel Williams, former daytime talk show host turned anti-Trump Twactervist.

Donald Trump Jr. will swipe half his toddler’s Halloween candy

“I’m going to take half of Chloe’s candy tonight & give it to some kid who sat at home. It’s never to [sic] early to teach her about socialism.” — Don Jr. 

Just a few responses to DJTJr….

* “You’re kind of an asshole, you know that? Just keep in mind, when the indictment comes, your dad doesn’t love you.”

*”Let her eat it all so she can grow up to be obese like grandpa.”

*“Maybe you could start by teaching her the difference between ‘to’ and ‘too’ #MakeGrammarGreatAgain.”

And this… just in from Don Jr. this morning: “Still waiting for liberal calls for immigration bans/reform like they do every time there’s a gun attack. Maybe hungover from Halloween?”

Laura Loomer with the anti-Mulsim rant…

“How many more people need to die before everyone agrees that Islam is cancer & we should never let another Muslim into the civilized world?” — Laura Loomer, an independent investigative journalist with a crowdfunding platform called FreeStartr with GotNews‘ Charles Johnson. She is also formerly an operative for James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas. “There’s no such thing as a moderate Muslim. They’re all the same. It’s time for us to accept this reality. I refuse to watch more ppl die.”

And Breitbart‘s Raheem Kassam: “This is nonsense. Thee are many non-Sharia complaint Muslims, but they’re scared to speak out due to attacks from Islamic supremacists.”

Trouble on Capitol Hill 

“Cap police officer told me yesterday that they’re ‘head hunting’ after last week’s protester got onto 2nd floor and threw flag at Trump.” — Laura Barrón-López, reporter, Washington Examiner.

“Today’s sudden, new restrictions on media movements in the Capitol come after Speaker Ryan bragged at a DC dinner last week: ‘We all need to be proud in the Capitol that we set the standard for media access… and we need to strive to keep that promise.'” — Billy House, congressional correspondent, Bloomberg News.

More from Billy House…

“The Standing Committee of Correspondents is distressed our credentialed reporters are being subjected to increased Capitol Police scrutiny as a direct result of the intruder who found his way into a press-only area. Not our fault that this protester made it into the Capitol.”

Watchu Talkin’ Bout Willis? 

“What a disgusting waste Donald Trump is.” — Oliver Willis, liberal senior writer, Shareblue.
