[We remember] Martin Luther King as an idea, Selma as an idea…what can happen with strategy, with discipline, and with love.

If we’re going to have arguments, let’s have arguments -- but let’s make them debates worthy of this body and worthy of this country.

We forget these are criminals they're out there apprehending. [Mayor] De Blasio's out there on the front lines defending these criminals. But the people who are defending his own family, he's not out here for. And I find it disgraceful…As the leader of this city, he needs to show a little more support for the cops. They're the ones that are dying for us. Simple.

Isn’t 007 supposed to [be] handsome? Glad you think I’ve got a shot!

The decision…to announce the [Ferguson] decision at 8:30 p.m. CT was foolish and dangerous. Here's the thing about that time of night: it's dark. Anyone – anyone! - should have known the decision in the Brown case would have been controversial. A decision not to indict, which was always possible, even likely, would have been sure to attract protests, even violence. Crowd control is always more difficult in the dark.
