    Unedited transcript of the 2005 tape in which Donald J. Trump repeatedly made vulgar comments about women. Mr. Trump was filmed talking to the television personality Billy Bush of “Access Hollywood” on the set of “Days of Our Lives,” where Mr. Trump was making a cameo appearance. They are later joined by the actress Arianne Zucker. The transcription is by Penn Bullock of The New York Times. https://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/08/us/donald-trump-tape-transcript.html (includes video)
    Trump: Yeah, that’s her. With the gold. I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her. You know, I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.
    Bush: Whatever you want.
    Trump: Grab ’em by the pussy. You can do anything.

    Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump @ 3:19 AM – 22 Mar 2018:
    “Crazy Joe Biden is trying to act like a tough guy. Actually, he is weak, both mentally and physically, and yet he threatens me, for the second time, with physical assault. He doesn’t know me, but he would go down fast and hard, crying all the way. Don’t threaten people Joe!”

    “Trump rips Justice Department in stinging set of tweets” https://www.cnn.com/2018/05/02/politics/donald-trump-justice-department/index.html
    “Trump calls Justice Department ‘rigged,’ threatens action” https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/trump-calls-justice-department-rigged-threatens-action/2018/05/02/6a568608-4e19-11e8-b725-92c89fe3ca4c_story.html?utm_term=.dd38f030f131
    “Precisely what the president is complaining about is unclear, but on Monday, Justice Department officials notified Reps. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) that they would not be receiving an unredacted copy of a memo outlining the scope of Mueller’s inquiry, according to officials familiar with the matter. A heavily redacted version of that memo has emerged in the pretrial hearings of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, but Meadows and Jordan, two of the president’s fiercest defenders, want to see the rest of it.
    The full memo outlines which Trump associates are under investigation, and for what, according to people familiar with the document.”

    President Trump boasted about a poll on Thursday that he claims shows he’s more popular than former President Lincoln.
    “You know, a poll just came out that I am the most popular person in the history of the Republican Party,” Trump said in an interview with The Sun published on Thursday.
    “Beating Lincoln,” Trump said. “I beat our Honest Abe.”
    It is unclear what poll the president was referring to in the interview, as presidential approval polling did not exist during the presidency of Abraham Lincoln.
    Trump earlier this week made a similar claim that appeared to refer to a Gallup poll indicating he is one of the most popular modern Republican presidents.
    “New Poll says Trump, at over 90%, is the most popular Republican in history of the Party. Wow!” he tweeted. http://thehill.com/homenews/news/396800-trump-says-recent-poll-shows-hes-more-popular-than-lincoln

    Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump 10:10 PM – 22 Aug 2018: “NO COLLUSION – RIGGED WITCH HUNT!”
    Trump has used the phrase witch hunt in 124 tweets in office. By the end of his tenure, he may well remake the figure of speech for future schoolchildren, who will associate it with the lies of the 45th president rather than Salem. https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2018/08/no-collusionrigged-witch-hunt-is-the-new-i-am-not-a-crook/568117/
