Quotes from The President is Missing
“Gerald Ford once said that an impeachable offense is whatever a majority of the House of Representatives says it is.”
“Participation in our democracy seems to be driven by the instant-gratification worlds of Twitter, Snapchat, Facebook, and the twenty-four-hour news cycle.”
“If there is nothing else to learn from history, it’s that from humans to animals, from the most primitive to the most civilized, most individuals want to be led. Take out the leader, and the rest of the pack panics.”
