Or, "Disloyal R's...don't know how to win - I will teach them."

Maybe just misses. But then there's,

"We have to investigate Hillary Clinton, and we have to investigate the
investigation."

Now that has a ring to it.  As does,

"It is so nice the shackles have been taken off me and I can fight for
America the way I want to."

And,

"O'REILLY:  [Does that mean] you're going to be *more* outspoken?

"T---P: I don't think I'm that outspoken, to be honest with you, Bill. I
think I'm not outspoken at [all]: no, I think I've been very nice.

The hits keep coming.
