No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service – Lemon Verbatim...
"The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump. Such poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico, who are not able to get their workers to help. They want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort. 10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job."
Par for the Course…
"The fact is that Puerto Rico has been destroyed by two hurricanes. Big decisions will have to be made as to the cost of its rebuilding! I tried to save a golf course there in 2008. I rebranded it with the Trump name. I was able to increase it's operating losses by an additional million dollars a year. Four years later, I pocketed half a million in management fees. Sometimes you have to just walk away."
The Real Rocket Man and the Point of No Returns...
"Tax reform will protect low-income and middle-income households, not the wealthy. They can call me all they want. I'm doing the right thing and it's not good for me, believe me, it's not. What is good for me, not only as President and legacy, what is good for me is if everything takes off like a rocket ship. Like it should have for 20 years. And I'll be on that rocket ship. Zero hour 9 AM. And I'm going to be high as a kite by then. I'll take all my money with me and I will say so long. And I think it's gonna be a long, long time. That's good for me. That's good for everyone. And that's what I think is going to happen. And a lot of very wealthy people feel the same way, believe me."
What's on Your Minder?...
"Facebook was always anti-Trump.The Networks were always anti-Trump hence,Fake News, NY Times (apologized) & WaPo were anti-Trump. The Truth and The Facts were always anti-Trump. Collusion?"
Lemon Verbatim and His PR Problem...
"It's very tough because it's an island. In Texas, we can ship the trucks right out there, you know, we've got A-pluses on Texas and Florida and we will also on Puerto Rico, but the difference is this is an island sitting in the middle of an ocean, and it's a big ocean, it's a very big ocean."
Locked and Loaded Arms...
"The issue of kneeling has nothing to do with race. It is about respect for our Country, Flag and National Anthem. Little Rocket Man must bow down to US because we're very, very big! Very powerful! If DPRK can't respect our country or flag like NASCAR racers, they won't be around much longer! Bad Ratings!"
Spurious Heeling – Lemon Verbatim's Deference to the Drafted...
"Great solidarity for our National Anthem and for our Country. Standing with locked arms is good, kneeling is not acceptable. Bad ratings!"
"If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL,or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect our Great American Flag (or Country). I love the Flag. I love to hide behind the American Flag as my team works with Russians to get elected and I trample the constitution making millions of dollars as the president."
"Whoever votes against Hcare Bill, will forever (future political campaigns) be known as "the Republican who saved ObamaCare. Why doesn't Senator McCain listen to my threats?"
"I would not sign Graham-Cassidy if it did not include coverage of pre-existing conditions. It does! A great Bill. Repeal & Replace. If people can't afford the new premiums for pre-existing conditions, they can borrow from the Russians–I know some great people."
Critical Mass Destruction...
"After allowing North Korea to research and build Nukes while Secretary of State (Bill C also), Crooked Hillary now criticizes. Under my leadership, North Korea will be provoked to use up their Nukes!"
Burning Out His Fuse Up Here Alone...
"The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. The Iran deal was one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered. We will have no choice but to totally destroy Iran. The Venezuelan people are starving, and their country is collapsing. Their democratic institutions are being destroyed. The situation is completely unacceptable, and we cannot stand by and watch. We will have no choice but to totally destroy Venezuela."
Ty Cobb Salad...
"Waiter, there's a bug in my soup!"
A Banner Year...
"The travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and more specific–by specific I mean Hillary Clinton. She must be stopped from traveling around the country promoting her book. She lost the election and should not be on TV acting presidential! The internet is her main recruitment tool which we must cut off & use better!"
Lawn Enforcement with Lemon Verbatim...
“Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else.”
Such a Nasty Omen...
"Another attack in London by a loser terrorist.These are sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard. Must be proactive! The first statement, was a fine statement, but you don’t make statements that direct unless you know the facts. Loser terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner. The internet is their main recruitment tool which we must cut off & use better! I have 100 million Twitter followers on Twitter. The travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and more specific-but stupidly, that would not be politically correct! If we got rid of all our constitutional protections, I guarantee foreigners would not be so eager to come here. Must be proactive & nasty!"
The Wall in the DACA Agreement...
The WALL, which is already under construction in the form of new renovation of old and existing fences and walls, will continue to be built. Also renovating kitchens and bathrooms. Putting solar panels on top–my idea. When renovations are done will maybe sell at a profit to Mexico or perhaps Russia in the exchange for lifting sanctions. America is open for business again! The WALL!"
Cutting Texas and Lowering Coasts...
"With Irma and Harvey devastation, Tax Cuts and Tax Reform is needed more than ever before. If we don't cut taxes quick, all our money will go to bail out hurricane refugees. Go Congress, go!"
"Fascinating to watch people writing books and major articles about me and yet they know nothing about me & have zero access. FAKE NEWS! People with no experience think they know everything! Ruining the country!"
"These are horrible, horrible enemies–enemies like we've never seen before. The attackers came from Saudi Arabia. I was not able to fit them in the Muslim ban, but I did get 83 very nice gifts during my state visit to the kingdom this year–artwork of myself, a wool robe lined with white tiger fur, nine pairs of leather sandals and a number of swords, daggers and holsters. Not unusual since I was announcing a huge arms deal with them–over 100 billion. A moment of silence..."
We're the Heist...
"I think now, with what's happened with the hurricane, I'm gonna ask for a speed up, I wanted a speed up anyway, but now we need it even more so. I used to have a doctor in the 1980s that I would ask for a speed up. We're the highest anywhere in the world right now."
"I ask everyone in the storm's path to heed all instructions, get out its way. And government officials, I know you're working so hard, you'll never work like this. And I appreciate also your bravery. So say as little as possible to Mueller. Hopefully this investigation will pass quickly. I don't know who is leaking all this stuff."
Cut to the Quick...
"Republicans must start the Tax Reform/Tax Cut legislation ASAP. Don't wait until the end of September. Needed now more than ever. Hurry! Russia investigation is closing in fast! I need a tax cut before impeachment starts."
"For all of those (DACA) that are concerned about your status during the 6 month period, you have nothing to worry about - No action! I agree with Chuck and Nancy that my agenda is no good. We are working together to stall my agenda like the first six months. We have great teams of talented and brave people already in place and ready to help with this upcoming disaster!"
In the Pipeline...
"I know you have a little bit of a drought. They had the opposite, believe me. You're better off. You are better off, they had the absolute opposite. We're doing everything we can but you have a very serious drought. I just said to the governor, I didn't know you had droughts this far north. Guess what: you have them. We're working hard on it, and it will disappear, it will all go away. I asked Jeff Sessions to make it all go away."
"As President, my highest duty is to defend the American people and the Constitution of the United States of America. At the same time, I do not favor punishing children, most of whom are now adults, for the actions of their parents. But we must also recognize that we are nation of opportunity because we are a nation of laws. As a businessman, I used the opportunity to break these laws and to have my businesses pay the cost-of-doing-business fines when I was caught. We must preserve the opportunity to break laws for American citizens and American businesses. Businesses also have dreams!"
Labor Day Assail...
"We are building our future with American hands, American labor, American iron, aluminum and steel. The future will be made out of iron, aluminum and steel. The future will be a wall. We love the dreamers, we love everybody. The dreamers can dream on the other side of the wall. Happy Labor Day! Thank you very much!"
Bull in the China Shop – Lemon Verbatim...
"I will be meeting General Kelly, General Mattis and other military leaders at the White House to discuss North Korea. Thank you."

Lemon Verbatim's Tex Return...
"They were just happy. We saw a lot of happiness. It’s been really nice. It’s been a wonderful thing. As tough as this was, it’s been a wonderful thing, I think even for the country to watch it and for the world to watch. It’s been beautiful. Have a good time everybody, I’m going to be doing a little help over here.”
September 1, 2017
"Wow, looks like James Comey exonerated Hillary Clinton long before the investigation was over...and so much more. A rigged system! I wrote about it in that letter about firing Comey. Very unfair to not exonerate me before investigating! And also many, many things. Comey shouldn't have been taller than me. SHOWBOAT!"
