We were raised to live simply, not to waste. It was a lesson my mother taught me every rainy morning. You see, growing up, I had only one good pair of shoes. So on rainy school days, my mom would slip plastic bread bags over them to keep them dry. But I was never embarrassed. Because the school bus would be filled with rows and rows of young Iowans with bread bags slipped over their feet.

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.
