Jay Leno
When I was knowingly misled but only learned that much later, that’s really when I started to become disillusioned at the White House.

Barack Obama
At the unveiling at the White House of the presidential portrait, President Bush pointed out that Hillary Clinton was the first sitting Senator in history to have her portrait hanging in the White House.
Eleanor Clift
The President is no more than a well-meaning baboon. I went to the White House directly after tea, where I found “The Original Gorilla”, about as intelligent as ever. What a specimen to be at the head of our affairs now.
George B. McClellan
If you say to the White House, ‘Obama has been very unfriendly to Israel,’ they say, ‘What do you mean? It’s the best military-to-military relationship ever.’ And that part is true.

Hillary Clinton
In a democracy such as ours the leading minds seldom achieve a place of permanent influence. And the men who sit in Congress or even in the White House are usually not our leading minds. They are not the thinkers. Still less have they time for reflection.
Pearl S. Buck
The information that the Secret Service shared with the White House included hotel records and firsthand accounts – the same types of evidence the agency and military relied on to determine who in their ranks was involved.
Carol D. Leonnig
The Obama administration has had seven criminal leak investigations. That is more than twice the number of any previous administration in our history. It’s on a scale never seen before. This is the most secretive White House that, at least as a journalist, I have ever dealt with.
Jill Abramson
I’ve been very fortunate, because I’ve cooked for a lot of actors and actresses and musicians. I’ve cooked for presidents and I’ve been to the White House.
Emeril Lagasse
President Obama spent Election Day away from any press coverage, attending closed-door meetings inside the White House. But on the bright side, it is nice to see some doors actually closed at the White House. It’s a whole new Secret Service security thing.
Jimmy Fallon
C’mon. He’d be embarrassing upstairs at the White House. So I think she’d have a hard time. I think a woman president would have to be very conservative to get elected.
Chris Matthews
Manipulating an election in a small developing country doesn’t have the same sort of ripple effect of electing Donald Trump into the White House.
Christopher Wylie
After that transition to the White House, Donald Trump will settle in for his first day of work, January 21, 2017. He’s already proposed the actions he wants to take within his first 100 days in office, but which campaign promises can he realistically tackle in that time?
Hari Sreenivasan
I think it would be so much fun to be in the White House.
Kim Kardashian

Cynthia McKinney
And whether I earned your vote or not, I have listened to you. I have learned from you. And you’ve made me a better president. And with your stories and your struggles, I return to the White House more determined and more inspired than ever about the work there is to do and the future that lies ahead.
Barack Obama
I still like and admire George W. Bush. I consider him a fundamentally decent person, and I do not believe he or his White House deliberately or consciously sought to deceive the American people.

Eric Garcetti
The last president we had was the smartest guy anyone could remember and he did the dumbest thing anyone has ever seen in the White House so go figure.
Harry Shearer
It’s perfectly legal in this country to change your mind. But when you’re a governor, you have to admit it. You can’t hide behind parliamentary tricks. That’s the difference, and that’s the kind of leader we need in the White House. Stop the Washington bull and let’s get things done.
Chris Christie
The acting director of the Secret Service, Joseph Clancy, said they may make the fence around the White House taller because of the recent security failures. When asked if he had any other ideas, he said, ‘Uh, make the sidewalk lower?’
Jimmy Fallon
My experience at the White House was invaluable.
Judy Smith
When the blood of thousands of Americans is shed, the impact lingers. For a generation after the Civil War, the Republican injunction to ‘vote as you shot’ kept the party dominant for decades; from 1868 to 1912, only one Democrat – Grover Cleveland – won the White House.
Jeff Greenfield
Somebody actually said that I’m the only entity on earth, other than rogue states, that has received an apology from the White House.
Charles Krauthammer
In 2002, a year after 9-11, as a Congressman, I was banned from the White House by Karl Rove because I told the ‘Washington Times’ that if there is another terrorist attack on our homeland and we have done nothing more than Bush has done to date, ‘Bush will have blood on his hands.’
Tom Tancredo

Carly Fiorina
I was in the White House for a year and a half. Up to that point, all my jobs had been very unglamorous.
Desiree Rogers
My mother missed having dinner with Lyndon Johnson because she couldn’t find the right hat to wear. While my father went off to the white house to break bread with the President, my mother, who’s not a things and stuff person, stayed at the hotel and tried on 10 different hats and missed dinner.
Emilio Estevez
I wish I had known when I was in the White House what I know now about the Third World.

Conan O’Brien
I can pretty much call anyone, whether at the White House, in a company or in the media. I have access, because of the silliness of the entertainment world and how people react to it. It gave me an enormous opportunity to do anything I really want to.
Andrew Shue
People aren’t really honest with themselves about anything. That’s one of the reasons why we ended up with Trump in the White House.
The Clinton White House today said they would start to give national security and intelligence briefings to George Bush. I don’t know how well this is working out. Today after the first one Bush said, ‘I’ve got one question: What color is the red phone?’
Bill Maher
I changed those things that were in direct – my direct control. I mean, I – look, I’m proud of the fact that, with two weeks to go, we’re probably the first administration in modern history that hasn’t had a major scandal in the White House.

Life after the White House found Dad enjoying having his grandchildren around and letting go of all the enormous burden he shouldered throughout his public life.

Greg Grandin
My liberal friends love to dismiss Reagan. You know, they’ll say something like, ‘Oh, didn’t he, like, only read one-page memos when he was in the White House?’ Well, that’s just good managerial practice. I mean, Franklin Roosevelt made people write one-page memos.
Rick Perlstein
The New York Times reports that [Donald] Trump wants [Jared] Kushner in the White House, and he’s exploring whether he can take a position. It’s problematic, though, because even an unpaid job could fall under a law prohibiting nepotism.
Steve Inskeep
In New York, lights are on the whole night; there are offices where not a single person is working, but all lights are on. The street lights at the White House are lit all the day. Why? And we are being told not to use coal.
Piyush Goyal
The pundit world, having spent years in awe of Karl Rove, will never understand how bad he is at his White House job.
Lawrence O’Donnell
All my stories were usually titled, ‘White House Says,’ ‘President Bush Wants,’ and I relied on transcripts from the briefings. I relied on press releases that were sent to the press for the purpose of accurately portraying what the White House believed or wanted.
Jeff Gannon
I think we need to get the measurements that Congress has mandated from the White House on how we’re going to determine progress in Afghanistan.

Cenk Uygur
[Andrew Jackson] was actually 70 years old when he left the White House
Ronald Reagan
Both Kennedy and Obama exuded a dash of glamour in their roles as commander-in-chief and became the darlings of Hollywood. As president, each brought to the White House a fashionable and accomplished First Lady, two adorable young children and scene-stealing pets.
Kitty Kelley
Although I wasn’t invited to shake hands with Hitler, I wasn’t invited to the White House to shake hands with the President either.
Jesse Owens
I certainly hope that we can all continue to be forces for good after leaving the White House.
Valerie Jarrett
The one thing I was always told is you absolutely have to tell truth to power. Whether you’re a second lieutenant working with a captain and a lieutenant colonel, or a four-star general working with the Office Secretary of Defense and the White House, the decision makers have got to have ground truth.
John F. Kelly
In the 1970s, ‘The Boys on the Bus’ exposed how a clubby pack of male political reporters ruled the road to the White House and shaped the news. Four decades later, an outsider gal from Alaska has commandeered the 2012 media bus – and left Beltway journalism insiders eating her dust.
Michelle Malkin
I want to see overwhelming force repel anybody who is trying to get into the White House.
Jason Chaffetz
President Clinton celebrates the first casual Friday at the white house by wearing leather chaps.
Greg Proops
Incumbent White House parties have won 10 of the last 18 presidential elections; the odds are tight, but they favor Obama in 2012. And so gloomy Democrats, check your despair; gleeful Republicans, watch the hubris.
Jon Meacham
What is the appetite for truth in the Trump White House? That’s not a question about the untrue things the president says. It’s about the level of truth the system expects.
John Dickerson
There are many great outlets that we love and respect, but ‘The North Star’ really is going to be a hard news outlet with reporters and journalists, White House correspondents. I think we’ll be hard news with some cultural commentary.
Shaun King
The Bush administration actually started out with an open mind towards Iran, by all indications. In fact, early in the administration, the White House tasked the various agencies of government to do an inter-agency review of Iran policy, as it did with Iraq policy and most of the big areas of the world.
Elaine Sciolino
While the Obama White House is completely incompetent and weak, they know how to spin everyday Americans.
Richard Grenell
For years President Obama has been saying that no one would lose their healthcare plan. Now the White House has admitted that in fact many people will lose their plans. But there is a way to keep the great coverage you have. Just become a member of Congress. Then the taxpayers pay for the whole thing.
Jay Leno
A White House dinner is the American family assembled, from labor leaders to billionaires, actors, architects, academicians and athletes.
Hugh Sidey
Officials at the White House are saying that President Bush hasn’t changed his schedule much since the war started. The main difference, they say, is that he’s started watching the news and taping Sponge Bob.
Conan O’Brien
One wrong move that appears to reveal a president ensconced in a White House bubble can lose an election, such as when President George H. W. Bush was criticized for expressing interest in the capabilities of a grocery-store scanner in the early 1990s.
Dan Bongino
Anne Marie Smith flew to Washington to tell prosecutors about Gary Condit’s attempt to get her to deny their affair. It looks bad. If it’s found he lied about the intern and the mistresses, he could get 4-8 years in the White House.
Argus Hamilton
Holding political leaders accountable on behalf of voters is at the core of what I do every day in my role as Chief White House Correspondent, so to do it on the national stage at a critical moment in the primary is a responsibility I take really seriously.
Hallie Jackson
I like photographers – you don’t ask questions. (To a gathering of the White House News Photographers Association)
Ronald Reagan
Obama took a tour of the Great Wall of China and said, ‘We need one of these things around the White House.’
David Letterman
I worked at the White House in the early Reagan administration at a time when the deficit rocket really started to take off.
Christopher Buckley
When people are breaking the law, they don’t get an invitation to the White House. They ought to be getting an invitation to the big house… This is just an anathema to everything that the civil rights movement was truly all about and what it accomplished.
Mike Huckabee
No Republicans won the White House since the “Jurassic” age without winning Ohio. But for the Democrats, it doesn’t matter.
Rush Limbaugh
I was given a White House – well, you will have to ask the White House that. But I asked to attend the White House briefing because I was, you know, because I wanted to report on the activities there.
Jeff Gannon
Presidential campaign and White House are two aggressively separate things. They still think I’m the weird kid in the corner, so I don’t have much power. But I’ll definitely do something to help.
Harper Reed
I have known several presidents quite well, including my husband, and I worked closely with President George W. Bush and the White House then after 9/11, and I served with President Obama. I disagree with all three of those presidents on certain things.
Hillary Clinton
A visit to the White House is a coup for any foreign leader, it’s a useful weapon of soft power.
Katty Kay
People still assume the White House Correspondents’ Association works for the White House, when in reality, it’s a group of journalists who cover the White House. It’s a branding thing, but because it has the ‘White House’ before it, people think they’re just King Joffrey’s goons.
Hasan Minhaj
When George Bush finally leaves the White House, the satire industry will briefly join the rest of the economy in recession. It will certainly be the end of an era.
Rory Bremner
I think that winning the White House is about more than just entertaining a large audience.
Mitch McConnell
I believed what my father taught me about the separation of church and state, so when I was President I never invited Billy Graham to have services in the White House because I didn’t think that was appropriate. He was injured a little bit, until I explained it to him.
Jimmy Carter
The 800-pound gorillas of TV news are gone. When I was the White House correspondent at NBC, and Tom Brokaw was anchor, the reporters were protected.
Campbell Brown
The problem we have had on the budget all along is a lack of adult supervision on the part of the White House. You can’t blame members of Congress for looking out for their parochial interests. It is the president’s responsibility to look out for the national interest.
Bruce Bartlett
After the White House what is there to do but drink?
Franklin Pierce
I don’t take a dime of their [lobbyist] money, and when I am president, they won’t find a job in my White House.
Barack Obama
We have every confidence that people within the White House have behaved appropriately.
Valerie Jarrett
Today Obama was seen leaving the White House in a nurse’s uniform on a flight to Cuba to smother Castro with a pillow.
Bill Maher
When it comes to making decisions, I will come down on the side of Nebraska every time. If I have to choose between the White House and the farmhouse, I choose the farmhouse.
Ben Nelson
After President Obama, President Rodriguez… What’s the worse that can happen? The border problem gets solved and the White House lawn looks better?
Christopher Titus
What Bill Clinton did to us was cruel. The White House gave my attorneys indications that there was a good chance for my clemency to be granted. I had to prepare myself for being released because there was no sign that my petition would be denied.
Leonard Peltier
To the families of special needs children all across this country I have a message for you: for years you have sought to make America a more welcoming place for your sons and daughters, and I pledge to you that if we’re elected, you will have a friend, an advocate, in The White House.
Sarah Palin
For example, I was a White House intern the summer before I dropped out of law school. Everybody knew about it. I’d come home and go to church and everybody would say, oh, my God. Demetri, you’re working at the White House.
Demetri Martin
My wife, Dixie, is evangelical Christian. We met in the Reagan White House, when she was a student intern. We’re members of the Horizon Christian Fellowship Church.
Dinesh D’Souza
The White House says that the unemployment rate is good news because it means more people are looking for jobs. More good news like that, and everyone at the White House will be looking for jobs.
Jay Leno
When I went back to the White House to be the communication director under Obama, I was six-months pregnant.
Jen Psaki
We have zero strategic thinking out of our White House. And we have a national security structure that has lost its way when it comes to strategic thinking and strategic decision-making.
Michael T. Flynn
White House cultures inevitably reflect the president’s character. Jimmy Carter is a thoroughly honest, good person. So was his White House.
Bill Drayton
Just to be seen strolling to or from a helicopter on the White House lawn, shouting an evasive answer to Sam Donaldson, must seem to the Reagans not quite satisfactory enough of a 7 PM presence, and this inane scene certainly galls the press.
Thomas B. Griffith
I don’t think they need to be nice to reporters, but the White House seems to imagine that releasing information is like a tap that can be turned on and off at their whim.
George Packer
If you aren’t creeped out by the No Birth Control Left Behind rhetoric of the White House and Planned Parenthood, you aren’t listening closely enough. The anesthetic of progressive benevolence always dulls the senses. Wake up.
Michelle Malkin
Lincoln prevailed: wearing his green shawl in the White House and gripped with melancholy, his feet constantly cold, he preserved a nation that had begun to unravel, often holding it together with nothing more than the flat of his hand and his unfaltering sense of human worth.
Jerome Charyn
Let’s come together and form our own party, and give the other parties hell – and then vette who we want, and take down these crooked rotten politicians that are in Congress, in the White House, and in the Supreme Court.
Louis Farrakhan
All I really had was my talent. Without that I wouldn’t be welcome at the White House.
Sammy Davis, Jr.
I’ve come around to thinking that having Donald Trump in the White House would be wonderful. Even if he isn’t able to achieve very much. Now, daddy’s gonna build the wall, daddy’s gonna fix trade. That’s going to happen.
Milo Yiannopoulos
I’ve always felt privileged to cover the White House and to have that ringside seat to history
Helen Thomas
Kids in Washington every year have the big Easter egg roll on the White House lawn. The kids found 300 Easter eggs. They also found about 10,000 missing Hillary emails.
David Letterman
We are a Republic with different branches of government, and so the Senate and the House are going to be full partners in working with the White House.
Elaine Chao
As a reporter having covered him for eight years in the White House, I am sure the press could have done a better job if we had known the real Ronald Reagan.
Helen Thomas
I began my career as a physicist. And in the White House, my buddies were the people from the White House office of science and technology policy. But a lot of the people were lawyers. They like winning an argument, but science-based, evidence-based reasoning was just sort of not in their framework.
Joseph Stiglitz
I spent three years working at the White House and wanted to do something that wasn’t about passing bills and resolutions.
Jon Lovett
I was born in a lovely white house with a garden.
Judy Garland
There’s always been that theory that if a candidate can’t run a decent campaign, he probably can’t run a decent presidency. That might be true, although sadly I must admit that running a brilliant campaign does not translate into running a brilliant White House.
Gail Collins
The White House is a huge organization, first and foremost.
Mike McCurry
My new mission is, and I’ve said this to the White House, I want the Buy America to be real. I want the Buy America to be by small businesses, African American businesses, Latino and Asian, but in particular our African American businesses who heretofore couldn’t even find the front door of government contracts.
Sheila Jackson Lee
I am the Democratic Whip of the White House.
Thomas P. O’Neill III
For example, I was privileged to be working at the White House under the Clinton administration and had not finished my Ph.D., and I thought I was the cat’s meow.
Peter Orszag
Barack Obama’s journey to the White House has impressed and inspired the entire world.
Ehud Olmert
A funny thing happened to me on the way to the White House.
Adlai Stevenson II
We learned that President-elect [Donald] Trump intends to keep his executive producer title on Celebrity Apprentice. We know he’s going to come out later this week and talk about how he’s going to handle the overall conflicts of interests, perhaps, with his businesses in the White House.
George Stephanopoulos
When your mission is to restore honor and integrity to the White House, you’ve got to be willing to use any means necessary.
Paul Begala
The White House has embarked on a mission to convince the people of our country that Social Security is in dire need of drastic change in order to save it for all workers.
Barbara Boxer
We should see the leadership from the White House setting dates certain for certain goals of achieving greater alliance on alternative and renewable energy sources, but we are not.
Ron Kind
When I get to the White House, there will be no hesitation from me to make the tough decisions that need to be made because I’ve been doing it for the last 13 years as a former federal prosecutor and now as the governor of New Jersey.
Chris Christie
Theres no way that I could be the president. You cant have a pacifist in the White House… Im an actor. This is what I do for a living.
Martin Sheen
I have been opposed to ceremonies at the White House. It gives the impression that the court is subordinate to the executive, which I think is quite wrong.
John Paul Stevens
I was actually asked to do the Christmas design for the White House. I thought it would be interesting, given that it has such a rich history, to decorate around some real beautiful oversized images of the history of the White House and the history of the country.
Jonathan Scott
I’m a former federal prosecutor, I’ve fought terrorists and won and when we get back in the White House we will fight terrorists and win again and America will be safe.
Chris Christie
It would be great if politics were fact-based, but it is not, and it is surely not nuance-based. What works in a classroom or a think tank does not work on Capitol Hill or in the White House. Obama sometimes seems to be running the Brookings Institution, not the country.
Jon Meacham
Clinton used to like to get out of the White House a lot. He would take night trips to McDonald’s, and stuff like that. I think he wanted to get out of the house.
Paul Thomas Anderson
People in the White House work hard, whatever administration. They get rewarded in psychic income, a sense that they are involved in something bigger than themselves, that it’s important.
Mark Shields
Shortly after assuming the role of senior adviser in the Trump White House, world leaders began to take note of Ivanka Trump’s ability to engage in diplomacy effectively – a skill she has consistently used to help benefit women in the workplace.
Kayleigh McEnany
In November 2007, the White House issued a Declaration of Principles demanding that U.S. forces must remain indefinitely in Iraq and committing Iraq to privilege American investors.
Noam Chomsky
The average guy doesn’t have an army of lobbyists and lawyers working on his behalf every day in the White House.
Dan Bongino
A woman is more than the sum of her parts. So I had an opportunity to present some work at the White House. I chose not just to talk about the sky, the planet, love or heartache. I wanted to actually be there, to place a mark on that moment.
Jill Scott
President Bush is now focusing on jobs. I think the one job he’s focusing most on is his own. The White House is now backtracking from its prediction that 2.6 million new jobs will be created in the U.S. this year. They say they were off by roughly 2.6 million jobs.
Jay Leno
Any time someone carries a picket sign in front of the White House, that is the First Amendment in action
Julian Bond
The White House has been noticeably schizophrenic on Guantanamo.
Jason Chaffetz
Here’s the latest from the Pentagon — the generals are worried that the White House is spreading itself thin by trying to fight a war on two fronts; Afghanistan and Fox News.
Jay Leno
Let’s just be clear here. The vice president of the United States accidentally shoots a man, and he feels that it’s appropriate for a ranch owner who witnessed this to tell the local Corpus Christi newspaper and not the White House press corps at large, or notify the public in a national way.
David Gregory
As the White House doors are slammed in the face of the average American, I want to know if they will still swing wide open for Hollywood and the liberal elite. Will Jay-Z and Beyonce still get to stop by for a tour, or will they be denied like those who aren’t rich and famous?
Tom Graves
The state that has a very, very special place in my heart. I love people of Arizona and together we are going to win the White House in November.
Donald Trump
There’s nothing like white trash at the White House.
Dolly Parton
Top Democrats laying down their markers for how they’ll work with President [Donald] Trump, but who will take on the job of rebuilding the Democratic Party after Tuesday’s crushing defeat put Republicans in control of the White House and congress.
George Stephanopoulos
Well, Joe Biden has done it again. He showed up at the White House Passover Seder with a bunch of ham sandwiches.
Jay Leno
Evangelicals catapulted George W. Bush back to the White House.
Al Sharpton
A group called Draft Biden 2016 has started selling bumper stickers that say ‘I’m ridin’ with Biden.’ It’s a lot better than the other one that women around the White House have started using – ‘I’m hidin’ from Biden.’
Jimmy Fallon
I’m substantially concerned about the policy directions of the space agency. We have a situation in the U.S. where the White House and Congress are at odds over what the future direction should be. They’re sort of playing a game and NASA is the shuttlecock that they’re hitting back and forth.
Neil Armstrong
I think it will be interesting to see what happens in that small confine at the White House, when you have all the media that`s been assigned to cover the White House, and you start getting the same kind of questions, the same kind of approach.
Donald Trump
The Democratic Party has become the party of the coastal elite, and the Republican Party is the party of the working class and that average American citizen who’s been struggling over the past eight years with Obama in the White House.
Ronna McDaniel
Besieged by lawsuits that threatened to engulf almost everyone at the White House, Clinton assistants shunned paper or e-mail records of their daily deliberations. One told me that he would go down the hall to confer with his division chief face to face rather than discuss an issue on the telephone.
Robert Dallek
If we steal a man’s purse we are thieves. If we steal twelve hundred islands we are patriots. If you steal a man’s money you will be sent to the penitentiary. If you steal his liberty you will be sent to the White House.
William Jennings Bryan
Most people in Washington assumed if Obama made it to the White House he would appoint Biden as his secretary of state, a position Biden openly admitted he wanted.
Richard Grenell
We’ll keep guessing at what it might be that he’s hiding. But I think the question is, were Donald Trump ever to get near the White House, what would be those conflicts?
Hillary Clinton
Your performance depends on your people. Select the best, train them and back them. When errors occur, give sharper guidance. If errors persist or if the fit feels wrong, help them move on. The country cannot afford amateur hour in the White House.
Donald Rumsfeld
In an era where the White House is abusing power, is excusing and authorizing torture and is spying on American citizens, I find Judge [Samuel] Alito’s support for an all-powerful executive branch to be genuinely troubling.
Samuel Alito
[White House is] the finest prison in the world.
Barack Obama
I know what’s best for the President. I put him in the White house. He does well when he listens to me and poorly when he does not.
Florence Harding
There’s a normal tendency in the campaign, during a crisis, for the country to rally around the White House. vThat may help Al Gore in this campaign, but on the other hand, George W. Bush handled himself so well the other night on foreign policy that I think it fortified him just before this crisis broke.
David Gergen
Since 1900, only three other [than Donald Trump ] presidents have won the White House with a smaller percentage of the popular vote. Woodrow Wilson in 1912, Richard Nixon in 1968, and Bill Clinton in 1992.
Chuck Todd
I had earlier concluded that a war with Iraq would be a distraction from the successful and expeditious completion of our aims in Afghanistan. Now I had come to question whether the White House was telling the truth.
Bob Graham
All we have to do is get out and vote, while it’s still legal, and we will wash those crooked warmongers out of the White House.
Hunter S. Thompson
Wherever I go, God rules. When I walk on White House grounds, God walks on White House grounds. I have every right and authority to declare the White House holy ground, because I was standing there and where I stand is holy.
Paula White
I knew I had to cover my back and document what I saw as an opportunity to kind of blow the whistle on a lot of the corruption going on in the White House, and I knew that I needed to document that corruption; otherwise, people would not take it seriously.
Omarosa Manigault Newman
Tim Tebow may be back in the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles. As you remember, he was thrown out of the league when he landed his gyrocopter on the White House lawn.
David Letterman
I think in the end we will have negotiations with the House. They don’t have any incentive for a long, drawn-out trial. We’ll have negotiations with the White House. Despite all their threats they are going to have a prolonged defense. The reality is they are the driving force behind getting this over quickly.
Phil Gramm
I chose as my target the University of Mississippi, which in 1960 was the holiest temple of white supremacy in America, next to the U.S. Capitol and the White House, both of which were under the control of segregationists and their collaborators.
James Meredith
The White House is the people’s house. When you do historical restoration, that must be what it is.
Iris Apfel
The only President who clearly died of overwork was Polk, and that was a long time ago. Hoover, who worked intensely and humorlessly as President, lived for more than thirty years after the White House; Truman, who worked intensely and gaily, lived for twenty
Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr.
They were totally uplifting my work and gave me a platform, and now I have an ongoing relationship with the White House. We’re working on some very, very, very big things for the trans community.
Angelica Ross
My personal experience has felt unique in that I’m juggling the already-intensive demands of network coverage of the White House alongside my daily MSNBC show.
Hallie Jackson
I just know that what happened in the Clinton White House should never have happened to anyone.
Linda Tripp
My siblings, along with my parents Chris and Kath, are the reason that I am successful. Whether I wanted to become an elementary school teacher, enter and win Alternative Miss Ireland, enroll to do a Ph.D., or visit the White House to speak about fashion and disability, they supported me.
Sinead Burke
The ties between the Obama White House and the hip-hop community are genuine.
Ta-Nehisi Coates
Donald Trump is a good businessman. He knows how to put the deal together. And I think he’d be a – he’ll be a very constructive figure in the White House.
Rick Santorum
You don’t have to be a poet, you don’t have to be a politician or be in the White House to make an impact with your words. We all have this capacity to find solutions for the future.
Amanda Gorman
The same people own the media that own the White House that own the Congress that own the oil fields. They all work together to give a false view of the world to the American people.
Gore Vidal
Did anyone in the White House or the N.S.A or the C.I.A. consider flying to Hong Kong and treating Mr. Snowden like a human being, offering him a chance to testify before Congress and a fair trial?
Alex Berenson
We didn’t exist. Ronald Reagan didn’t say the word ‘AIDS’ until 1987. I’ve tried desperately to get a meeting in the White House; Gay Men’s Health Crisis is already an established organization. I have a certain presence.
Larry Kramer
The White House used to be, everybody looked up at the White House and America and everything, and now I think it’s like a house of shame.
Jonathan Davis
If Hillary Clinton wants to win the White House, she’s gonna have to convince Americans they can trust her and if you seen the polls, they don’t. There’s one American who has faith in her, her husband Bill.
Eric Bolling
It’s not like I just have to go to Washington and go to the White House everyday, and go to the same press conference at 10 in the morning and then be briefed at 4 in the afternoon, and then get a story on at 6.
Tabitha Soren
There are a very limited number of people in senior roles at the White House, and time is their most precious asset.
Ben Rhodes
Melania [Trump] goes back and forth, after Barron finishes school, it’s hard to take a child out of school with a few months left, she and Barron will be moving over to the White House.
Donald Trump
The White House isn’t the only platform with a voice. ABC has a pretty big voice, too.
Meghan McCain
It’s time for the bully pulpit of the White House to bring the gangstas in, put them around the table and let them know that if they don’t come up with loan modifications and keep people in their homes that they’ve worked so hard for, we’re gonna tax them out of business.
Maxine Waters
I did a lot of work on energy efficiency at the White House. By the time I left we had taken the equivalent of six hundred cars a year off the road in reduced greenhouse gas emissions just in the White House complex.
William J. Clinton
If forced to choose between the penitentiary and the White House for four years, I would say the penitentiary, thank you.
William Tecumseh Sherman
My job is to be a spokesman – the spokesman, I suppose – for the President, for the White House, to do the daily briefings, to manage the press corps in terms of travel, day-to-day needs, access, interviews, all those issues.
Dee Dee Myers
‘The Butler’ has virtually nothing in common with its source material, the life of White House butler Gene Allen, except for the fact that the main character of the film and Allen were both black butlers in the White House.
Ben Shapiro
I was wrong to exaggerate in statements related to my experiences in the White House and the Royal Family. I am truly sorry for misleading people and misstating the facts.
Robert Irvine
Democrats were quick to point out that President Bush’s budget creates a 1 trillion dollar deficit. The White House quickly responded with ‘Hey, look over there, it’s Saddam Hussein.’
Craig Kilborn
I cooked at the White House for Easter, last year, with Michelle Obama. But it more had to do with cooking from the organic garden, and her message. I took my daughter and granddaughter there, and they were really charming, it was great.
Jacques Pepin
The White House is worried about Joe Biden’s potential run for president, and a source says they fear that it wouldn’t have the right outcome. That’s right, they think he might win.
Jimmy Fallon
Mr. president, I’ve been a citizen of the United States of America for thirty three years and was never invited to the White House. It sure gives me pleasure to be invited to the Black House.
Muhammad Ali
Presidents grow up in the White House. The times shape the man.
Thomas Friedman
American families be warned, if the White House doesn’t send your jobs overseas, they’ll send your kids.
Joe Baca
Let us learn from the lessons of September 11 and not wait for a major strike before we act. We must work together – Democrats and Republicans, Congress and the White House, government and the private sector – to make our country a safer and more prosperous place.
Dan Coats
Hillary Clinton’s such a classic Democratic political figure and believes so much in institutions and in gradualism in the old way of reaching compromises with the opposition in the back rooms. That’s what she did in Congress. It’s what I imagine she’ll try to do in the White House.
George Packer
It’s time to restore honor and dignity to the White House.
George W. Bush
Almost the first thing Obama did in the White House was to return the bust of Winston Churchill to the British embassy. That suggests a major re-ordering of things. It’ll be fascinating to see what happens from now on. It was a genuine break with the recent past – perhaps to re-connect with the past past.
Amanda Foreman
I’m not going to comment on White House personnel selections.
Mitch McConnell
I remember having lunch with a friend who worked at the White House. I’d just graduated from law school but kept telling my friend what they needed to do and weren’t doing right about the Iran-Contra affair. The next day, I got a call from the White House, offering me a job.
Judy Smith
There is huge money to be made – by candidates, by book publishers, by merchandise peddlers – from small-dollar conservative consumers who are as enraged by their own party’s establishment as they are the Obama White House.
Steve Kornacki
If you write something the White House doesn’t like, they take you in and say, ‘If you ever write something like you did today, nobody from the White House will ever talk to you again,’
Ron Suskind
Keeping Crooked Hillary Clinton out of the White House!
Donald Trump
Did you know that the White House drug test is multiple choice?
Rush Limbaugh
The White House doesn’t create jobs. The government together – White House, Congress – creates policies that allow for greater job creation.
Jay Carney
The White House says that the vacation in Texas will give President Bush the chance to unwind. My question is, when does the guy wind?
David Letterman
Reporters are always supposed to be demanding more access and more transparency. So the day that there isn’t some friction between the White House press corps and the White House is the day that somebody in the press corps is not doing their job.
Josh Earnest
Jeb Bush gave a speech yesterday. He had a pretty rough time. He accidentally said that ISIS has 200,000 men instead of 20,000, and then he mispronounced the name of the terrorist group Boko Haram. So if history has taught us anything, Jeb is well on his way to winning the White House.
Jimmy Fallon
As a matter of fact I’ve been asked to come when I’m free to play at the White House.
Dikembe Mutombo
White House staff spends enormous amounts of time planning a president’s every move so that his public persona reflects the mood of the public.
Dan Bongino
I believe that Donald Trump in the White House would be more abusive to the Constitution than Barack Obama, and that’s saying a lot.
Scott Pruitt
I think Hillary Clinton understands the ins and outs of the White House better than anyone who’s come before her.
Natalie Portman
My second child came in September 2008, and I joined the Obama transition team in November. I was part of the group that opened the White House doors on Inauguration Day. And then I basically didn’t leave for two years.
Marne Levine
Working at the White House is an honor for any preacher’s kid from Magnolia, but the issue is jobs.
Tim Griffin
Every major press organization works out of its own little space in the White House. Picture a mini cruise-ship cabin, or a row of four seats on an airplane: that’s about all the space we have. You spend hundreds of hours inches away from your colleagues.
Hallie Jackson
I came here with a lot of things that I would like to get done for my community and my constituents. Shooting hoops at the White House was not at the top of the list but would certainly be a thrill.
Ted Deutch
A lot of street crime is horrible, but in terms of the dislocation, the undermining of the family – the corporate criminals, many of whom reside in Congress and the White House – are getting away literally with murder.
Jerry Brown
People don’t realize there’s a whole separate entrance to the White House for journalists.
Sebastian Gorka
I hear that whenever someone in the White House tells a lie, Nixon gets a royalty.
Johnny Carson
One day I was teaching my class and then I had to go to the White House right after, so literally, I took my dress to school. After my classes I went into the ladies room, changed into my outfit, got into the car, went to the White House. So there are real, you know, Superman moments!
Jill Biden
Why in general, when you`re putting together a White House staff and putting together a good one, you`re looking for someone there who is not someone who`s going to be heavy-handed.
Lawrence O’Donnell
I want to thank you for coming to the White House to give me an opportunity to urge you to work with these five senators and three congressmen, to work hard to get this trade promotion authority moving. The power that be, well most of the power that be, sits right here.
George W. Bush
I’m going to live in the White House with my family.
Donald Trump
At the G-20 summit, the White House accidentally listed a phone-sex line for journalists seeking an on-record briefing call for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. To which Bill said, ‘Boy, did they get the wrong number.’
Jay Leno
I’m sick and tired of these despicable Republican attacks that always seem to come from those who never can be found to serve in war, but love to attack those who did. I’m not going to be lectured by a stuffed suit White House mouthpiece standing behind a podium…
John F. Kerry
From where you sit, the White House may look as untidy as the inside of a stomach. As is said of the legislative process, sausage-making and policy-making shouldn’t be seen close-up. Don’t let that panic you. Things may be going better than they look from the inside.
Donald Rumsfeld
You as the press secretary have to protect the president’s interests and the White House’s interests more broadly. And a lot of people inside the White House, as you learned, sometimes with painful experience, have competing agendas, have differing points of view, have priorities they’re trying to protect.
Dee Dee Myers
I got Type 1 diabetes at 30. It hit me in 1982 when I was a White House Fellow in Washington. I had viral pneumonia. I lost 35 pounds in six weeks. And I couldn’t see anything. Everything was blurry. I was always thirsty.
Clayton M. Christensen
There is no law that guarantees press access to the White House. Communication was lessening during the Obama years. There was every reason to suspect that Trump was going to create an adversarial relationship and that people were going to be faced with the impossible dilemma between sort-of-complicity and access.
Masha Gessen
This is part of the core media strategy out of Trump’s White House: to use federal troops to bolster his sagging poll data. And it is an absolute abuse of federal law enforcement officials.
Ted Wheeler
What matters most is not who is sitting in the White House, but “who is sitting in” – and who is marching outside the White House, pushing for change.
Howard Zinn
It’s no wonder the White House is delaying release of the latest dismal budget figures. It’s not just that they are grossly more dismal than the projections. It’s that they will undercut already-waning public support for Obama’s socialized medicine scheme.
David Limbaugh
The White House would love to see Obamacare taken apart all at once, bit by bit, however we can do it.
Mick Mulvaney
The White House press corps isn’t there at a press briefing. It’s not… They’re not news gatherers there. There really isn’t any media.
Rush Limbaugh
When you cover the White House, which I’ve done on and off, it’s relatively straightforward – everything the president does is news.
Kasie Hunt
The sudden ending of a White House career all seems so unceremonious for aides who have personally sacrificed a lot – and sometimes even bent their conscience – to do the president’s bidding.
Helen Thomas
It’s casual Friday, which means that at the White House, they’re casually going through everybody’s phone calls and records.
Jay Leno
The White House announced that it has rejected several petitions to legalize marijuana. They say it has nothing to do with politics. It’s just that they can’t accept a petition that was written on a crumpled up Funyuns bag.
Jimmy Fallon
As America knows, Obama turned down the lucrative career path guaranteed to the first African-American president of The Harvard Law Review to pursue the missions of service and teaching instead. The potential rewards for our country, now that that early choice has led him into the White House, are enormous.
Frank Rich
George W. Bush is a leader, and that’s what we need in the White House. George Bush is someone you can believe and trust.
Jim Edgar
FDR had been Assistant Secretary of the Navy. They told me, now forgotten, just how many pictures of ships they took out of the White House after he died. But he could choose good men.
Stuart Symington
We don’t consider the battle has ended in Afghanistan… The battle has begun and its fires are picking up. These fires will reach the White House, because it is the center of injustice and tyranny.
Mohammed Omar
The White House will run itself while the president is away. That’s why he has to be sure not to be away too much.
Dick Morris
Many Democrats are in a reflective mood . They lost the White House this year [2016], which would not matter as much as it does, except they also failed to take back the Senate, remain out of power in the House and are out of power in most states.
Steve Inskeep
I spent almost eight years working for the Obama administration, in the White House as the deputy press secretary, deputy communications director, communications director, and as the spokesperson at the State Department.
Jen Psaki
The Israeli puppeteer travels to Washington and meets with the puppet in the White House. He then goes down Pennsylvania Avenue and meets with the puppets in Congress. The Israeli leader then ‘brings back millions of dollars’ in aid to Israel.
Ralph Nader
As a reporter having covered him for eight years in the White House, I am sure the media could have done a better job if we had known the real Ronald Reagan.
Helen Thomas
But I do think it’s unwise, and it – to build a mosque at the site where 3,000 Americans lost their lives as a result of a terrorist attack. And I think to me it demonstrates that the – that Washington, the White House, the administration, the President himself seems to be disconnected from the mainstream of America.
John Cornyn
Michelle Obama has gone from political skeptic to political partner to a woman with a White House agenda of her own, and an approval rating higher than the president’s.
Jodi Kantor
The fact was, Ford kept stumbling around. I didn’t want him in the White House. I wanted Carter in, and I had a forum of 20 million people watching.
Chevy Chase
I’m a better American than 99% of the guys in the White House.
Seymour Hersh
Of course [the White House press corps] are a factor, and the reason is they’re not media. They happen to pretend or portray people running around finding out things nobody else knows and telling everybody, but that’s not what they do.
Rush Limbaugh
I went to see President Nixon at the White House. It wasn’t difficult to get a meeting because I was heavyweight champion of the world. So I came to Washington and walked around the garden with Nixon, his wife and daughter. I said: I want you to give Ali his licence back. I want to beat him up for you.
Joe Frazier
If the Republicans get control back of the United States Senate, we will no longer have a check and balance on the White House, on the Republican Congress.
Patty Murray
I didn’t know anything about Eliza when I first got the call about ‘Hamilton.’ Tommy Kail, the director, asked me if I wanted to be a part of it. I knew what he was talking about because I’d seen the video of Lin performing it at the White House for Barack and Michelle Obama.
Phillipa Soo
Would the potential attraction to Mormonism by simply having a Mormon in the White House threaten traditional Christianity by leading more Americans to a church that some Christians believe misleadingly calls itself Christian, is an active missionary church, and a dangerous cult?
Rick Santorum
Who knows? Maybe someday I’ll be living in the White House.
Jazz Jennings
The only time there’s gonna be a transgender bathroom in the White House is during a gay rights ceremony. You know as well as I do that that’s not going to happen.
Rush Limbaugh
There are plenty of African-Americans in this country – and I would say this goes right up to the White House – who are not by any means poor, but are very much afflicted by white supremacy.
Ta-Nehisi Coates
Once a president gets to the White House, the only audience that is left that really matters is history.
Doris Kearns Goodwin
Every decision that they take has enormous consequences, and ripple out from the White House.
Sidney Blumenthal
On immigration, there are a lot of hurdles before anything arrives at the White House.
Gwen Ifill
WORK ON YOUR STORY! He/she who has the best story wins! In life! In business! The White House!
Tom Peters
I walked into the main entrance of the White House, and I said to myself, “This is sort of amazing.”
Donald Trump
Kennedy was a man who liked writers and even I got invited to the White House.
Irwin Shaw
Politically at that time, with Thatcher in Britain and Reagan in the White House, it wasn’t looking too great for the Left. And we were always on the left.
Joe Strummer
Many Republicans knew that Trump’s anti-media attacks were damaging, and they cringed when his White House was consumed by his own narcissism. They knew that the country deserved better.
Brian Stelter
The White House looked into a plan that would allow illegal immigrants to stay in the United States. The plan called for a million Mexicans to marry a million of our ugliest citizens.
Dennis Miller
That’s a question you’d have to present to people in the White House.
Laura Poitras
And who knows? Somewhere out there in this audience may even be someone who will one day follow my footsteps, and preside over the White House as the president’s spouse. I wish him well!
Barbara Bush
Remember chief of staff Rahm Emanuel’s callous enjoinder ‘you never want a serious crisis to go to waste’? This White House is a serious crisis.
Bob Tyrrell
Democrats didn’t just lose the 2016 presidential election, they lost seats across the country at every level of government under Obama’s tenure in the White House.
Katie Pavlich
President Obama said the small drone that flew over the White House fence yesterday could be bought at any RadioShack. After hearing this, the RadioShack CEO said, ‘I’m shocked to find out we still sell something people want.’
Conan O’Brien
Howard Dean is no longer the brilliant mastermind of the Fifty State Strategy that enabled the Democrats to storm the White House and Congress. He’s the idiot wearing an ugly sweatshirt.
Nell Scovell
I introduced the FREED Vets Act to make student debt forgiveness for disabled veterans automatic, both now and in the future, regardless of who is in the White House.
Conor Lamb
Some people in this nation believe that race is a significant factor in the constant attacks against President Obama. Others believe that these attacks reflect only the normal level of criticism aimed at the occupant of the White House.
James A. Forbes
My husband and I got married in D.C. at the Decatur House. We met here, we got married here – our wedding pictures have the White House in the background.
Margaret Brennan
He told us he was going to take crime out of the streets. He did. He took it into the damn White House.
Ralph Abernathy
I would be surprised to see the White House scaling back on anything. That would be an admission they are operating from a position of weakness.
Rich Galen
Things aren’t getting better; they’re getting worse. The White House is completely disconnected from reality. It’s like they’re just making it up as they go along. The reality is that we’re losing in Iraq.
Chuck Hagel
We buy our own toilet paper even here in the White House.
Barack Obama
When I was asked to do a song from ‘In the Heights’ at the White House in 2009, I chose instead to do ‘Alexander Hamilton’ because I felt like I was meeting a moment.
Lin-Manuel Miranda
Our political correct society is acting like some giant insult’s taken place by calling a bunch of people who are retards, retards…There’s going to be a retard summit at the White House.
Rush Limbaugh
Trump’s real Achilles heel, and the thing most likely to keep him out of the White House, is his brazen contempt for women (plus his lack of impulse control and inability to stay off his Android phone).
Joy Reid
Do you realize the responsibility I carry? I’m the only person standing between Richard Nixon and the White House.
John F. Kennedy
If you are as happy in entering the White House as I shall feel on returning to Wheatland, you are a happy man indeed.
James Buchanan
Since I don’t have access to the White House pastry chef anymore, it’s done wonders for my figure.
William J. Clinton
I have been informed repeatedly that in lieu of records, I would be expected to testify about my service in the White House to demonstrate my experience and judicial philosophy.
Harriet Miers
Look, we understood we couldn’t make it illegal to be young or poor or black in the United States, but we could criminalize their common pleasure. We understood that drugs were not the health problem we were making them out to be, but it was such a perfect issue for the Nixon White House that we couldn’t resist it.
John Ehrlichman
I won’t let anybody, even the most powerful person in this country, trample our values or our Constitution. And no matter who’s in the White House, I am incredibly vigilant about that and will continue to fight that fight.
Eric Garcetti
My very first live shot was from the White House lawn. I literally almost threw up. I was so scared out of my mind. It was horrible.
Dana Bash
I think that many black people thought this would be a wonderful and extraordinary thing, for a black family to occupy the White House. Not only black people; a lot of white people thought that, too, but particularly black people.
Randall Kennedy
The Obamas, especially Michelle, have radiated the sense that Americans do not appreciate what they sacrifice by living in a gilded cage. They’ve forgotten Rule No. 1 of politics: No one sheds tears for anyone lucky enough to live at the White House.
Maureen Dowd
I met Clinton during her husband’s first campaign for the White House. It was 1992, New Hampshire, and both Clintons had stopped at a coffee shop to greet the folks and get something to eat.
Richard Cohen
I do not recall ever receiving a suggestion, let alone an order, from the White House as to how I should make a regulatory decision. How times have changed.
Russell E. Train
You can’t be too far away from your BlackBerry because if there’s a development anywhere around the world, it impacts the White House.
Kristen Welker
So, President Obama wants to change America. I understand that. We dont need to change America. We need to change the White House. We need to change the leadership in the White House.
Mario Diaz-Balart
Every child in America fantasizes about running wild in the White House for a few minutes.
Mary Steenburgen
Nobody turns down an invitation to the White House, but I’ve seen plenty of people turn down an invitation to fully live.
Bob Goff
I understand Jacqueline Kennedy has redone the White House in eighteenth-century style. Why, then, I’d fit in perfectly.
Barry Goldwater
When people are making up stories about Bob Mueller on Fox News and those get traction in congressional committees and in the White House, at a certain point, I’ve got to say no.
Richard Painter
The White House – we continue to believe that Democrats and Republicans should do what they have done 80 times, which is to raise the debt limit, and that is what we are working toward.
Jen Psaki
The Media are corporations so… It’s the concentrations of private power which have an enormous, not total control, but enormous influence over Congress and the White House and that’s increasing sharply with sharp concentration of private power and escalating cost of elections and so on.
Noam Chomsky
The Secret Service said there have been 40 fence-jumping incidents at the White House in the past five years. Half of them were intruders trying to get in. The other half was President Obama trying to get out.
Conan O’Brien
John McCain said that Barack Obama is already measuring the drapes in the White House. That’s what he said. I understand Sarah Palin is already driving McCain around to look at assisted living facilities.
Jay Leno
I had to perform at the White House for the president, That’s always kind of a weird set to try to put together.
Jeff Foxworthy
As I’ve said repeatedly, Joe Biden in the White House is a threat to America’s safety and security.
Marjorie Taylor Greene
It was important for me to join the White House because as I looked around Trump’s inner circle and campaign, there were not a lot of African-Americans, particularly African-American women, uniquely positioned to serve as a member of the senior staff, to serve as an assistant to the president.
Omarosa Manigault Newman
Betty White met with President Obama at the White House. President Obama invited Betty personally because she’s great with animals. And the president’s still having a tough time house-training Joe Biden.
Craig Ferguson
I’m going to use the White House and every tool at my disposal as your president to make the case that patriotism is profitable.
Hillary Clinton
It’s as if inside the White House the belief in Obama’s inspirational charisma is still such that every time the ugliness of brute politics intrudes, it’s a startling revelation.
Tina Brown
I love this city. If I am elected, I’ll move the White House to San Francisco. Everybody’s so friendly.
Robert Kennedy
Barack Obama’s historic 2008 presidential campaign touched on all the themes I have covered throughout my career and all of the layers of meaning that run through black politics. Ambition. Aspiration. Fear. Folly. It was all on display as Obama boarded the roller coaster that ultimately led to the White House.
Gwen Ifill
Good news. President Bush is creating thousands of new jobs. Unfortunately, all of them are at the White House.
Jay Leno
What happens to conservatives when they get near the White House? How come they only seem to be talking the good talk at, say, the Senate level, when they don’t have to run the show?
Chris Matthews
Life is a little different from what you would read in the mainstream media inside the White House.
Sebastian Gorka
While President Bush was out of town Hillary Clinton stopped by the White House on Friday for an important meeting with her decorator.
Jay Leno
Am I a Democrat? Yes, I’m a Democrat. But at the end of the day, when I take the oath as a senator it won’t be to do the bidding of the Democratic Party or a president in the White House. I will be there to fight for the people of South Carolina.
Jaime Harrison
Since 2000, Republican policies have suppressed Democratic voting; since 2010, Republican gerrymandering has given the Republicans a heavy systematic advantage in Congress; and the last two Republican presidents have won the White House while losing the popular vote to their opponents.
Heather Cox Richardson
The White House, in advancing the agenda for a [school] “choice” plan, rests its faith on market mechanisms. What reason have the black and very poor to lend their credence to a market system that has proved so obdurate and so resistant to their pleas at every turn?
Jonathan Kozol
When I started as a White House correspondent, there was a lot of criticism from guys saying, ‘She focuses too much on the person but not enough on policy.’ I never understood that argument at all. I just didn’t agree with the premise.
Maureen Dowd
Every time a Republican wins the White House, whenever Republicans win control of Congress, the Drive-Bys always claim that the message is voters want a balanced and divided government.
Rush Limbaugh
It kills me not to be there, not to be in the White House doing what needs to be done.
Mitt Romney
I thought it would be funny to take a photo in the White House bathroom, I take pictures everywhere I go, but I don’t think I can top that one.
John Legend
American foreign policy had still not recovered from its victory over communism when George W. Bush and Condoleezza Rice took over at the White House in 2001.
Russell Baker
We’ve had a tone-deaf White House that does not want to be reasonable. President Obama won’t meet with the Republicans. It’s all his way.
Chris Smith
Yesterday, the White House confirmed that President Obama will meet with Pope Francis during his visit in September. Some experts are wondering if they’ll discuss their disagreement over contraception. Then Joe Biden said, ‘I didn’t even know they were dating.’
Jimmy Fallon
White House and State Department foreign-policy experts are overwhelmingly directed towards military and diplomatic issues, not development issues.
Jeffrey Sachs
Some would argue that the president himself benefited from a form of affirmative action because as a C student, he only got into Yale because his father was a wealthy alumnus. But the White House counters that Saddam is a menace and must be stopped.
Jon Stewart
I like Barack Obama as a person. He’s articulate, he knows sports, his brother-in-law’s a coach. He always has the athletes to the White House. But I don’t know about some of his policies and some of these people in Congress.
Pete Rose
For the past two years, President Obama has promised our children the moon, stars, rainbows, unicorns and universal health care for all. But the White House Santa’s cradle-to-grave entitlement mandates are a spectacularly predictable bust.
Michelle Malkin
The White House is giving George W. Bush intelligence briefings. You know? some of these jokes just write themselves.
David Letterman
‘Bombshell’ is a remarkable podcast. In the course of it, three people who know what they are talking about cover ‘military strategy, White House mayhem, and the best cocktails’.
David Hepworth
President Obama is an inspiration of mine, and interning with his administration in the White House opened my eyes to the possibilities of making change at the local level.
Michael Tubbs
It defies all common sense to send that roughneck ward politician back to the White House.
Robert Taft
If President Barack Obama had not been in the White House, we would not have the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau today.
Elizabeth Warren
The prime minister of Ireland will be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day at the White House. So finally the Secret Service agents will have a drinking buddy.
Conan O’Brien
We’ve got to stop crying and start sweating, stop talking and start walking, stop cursing and start praying. The strength we need will not come from the White House, but from every house in America.
Jimmy Carter
A white boy that makes C’s in college can make it to the White House.
Chris Rock
On my first day in office as President Quavo, I’d move my whole family into the White House. Second, I’d pull all the troops back. Third, I’d raise the minimum wage to a good, nice amount so people get paid.
I think to close half of Magic Kingdom for the purpose of a White House invitation town hall meeting on a phony main street on behalf of a phony president just strikes me as weird.
Newt Gingrich
There can be no whitewash at the White House.
Richard M. Nixon
There’s no higher honor, in my estimation, than being asked to serve in the White House.
Van Jones
On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.
H. L. Mencken
I felt that let’s understand that all these people are just human, even the advisors in the White House, they’re just real people trying to make real decisions and they make mistakes like anybody else does under pressure. If you can get that with these great performances then you claim it on that level as well.
Gerard Butler
President Obama had lunch with Republican leaders at the White House today and had to do without salt, pepper and butter. Not for dietary reasons. The Republicans refused to pass anything.
Jay Leno
‘Hamilton’ is, of course, closely tied to the Obamas because Lin first performed the opening number at a White House poetry jam.
Phillipa Soo
I think what we ought to be focusing on is that we are on path for the release of 75,000 pages of documents in connection with John Roberts’ work in the White House, as in the counselor’s office and as his time working as an assistant in the office of the attorney general.
Alberto Gonzales
Whatever historical or ideological relevance the Iowa caucus has will more than likely not get you to the White House, but it will probably get you a sweet gig at Fox News.
Meghan McCain
‘First Family’ on the CW is about the president and his family living in the White House.
Yara Shahidi
It’s time to take the ‘Men Only’ sign off the White House door.
Carol Moseley Braun
Every time I walk through the White House gates, if you don’t stop and take it in and recognize that you are a witness to history, it’s time for you, frankly, to get a new job.
Kristen Welker
By disgracing and degrading the presidency of the United States, by fleeing the White House like a diseased cur, Richard Nixon broke the heart of the American Dream.
Hunter S. Thompson
The White House has now put together a website for kids. It’s a website to teach kids how to manage a budget responsibly. The website is called ‘ Irony.gov. ‘
David Letterman
I miss Nixon. Compared to these Nazis we have in the White House now, Richard Nixon was a flaming liberal.
Hunter S. Thompson
The establishment? Well, guess what? Donald Trump now is the establishment. His primary opponents, many of them are interviewing for White House gigs.
Chuck Todd
Now that the midterm elections are over, President Obama has invited congressional leaders from both parties to a meeting at the White House tomorrow. When asked if he’s nervous, Obama said, ‘Oh, I’m not going to be there. I just invited them over. They can figure it out themselves.’
Jimmy Fallon
The highest levels of the U.S. military, the Defense Department, and the White House must be held accountable for putting our troops at greater risk and diminishing Americas moral authority across the globe.
Lawrence Korb
If I’m going to the White House, my alarm goes off at 5:00 A. M. Typically there is no snoozing; jump out of bed, text my producer, often start texting with sources if there’s breaking news that’s happened overnight, and I’m off and running from that moment on.
Kristen Welker
White House is ranting up its rhetoric for Republicans, using wild words to attack them over the budget standoff.
Andrea Tantaros
I’ve heard a lot of nasty rhetoric about the president. We’re going to kick your rear end out of the White House and stuff. That’s just not the way I behave.
John Kasich
With Ronald Reagan in the White House, somebody had to look out for those who were not so fortunate. That’s where I came in.
Thomas P. O’Neill
Governors, all things being equal, I’d rather have a governor in the White House than somebody that’s not had that experience.
Matt Mead
I am convinced that I do not want to give up more power to the White House, whether it’s George Bush or Barack Obama. And I’m going to fight as hard as I can against President Obama on these earmarks and my Republican colleagues who hate to vote for them, but love to get them.
Harry Reid
When I look back on my life, it seems nearly everything of interest happened in little more than one decade – dramas, tragedies, major events, pleasures, my close friendships with artists and political figures, the lovely places where I lived in England and New York, the trips to Europe, visits at the White House.
Lee Radziwill
Michelle Obama was asked when life begins. According to her it’s when she and Barack take over the White House.
Evan Sayet
Anyone who listens to the Nixon White House would recognize that Nixon, who was in the Navy, was no stranger to profanity.
Roger Stone
Punditry is like weather forecasting: the winds can shift without warning. I remember when nobody would bet a McDonald’s Quarter Pounder that Bill Clinton would win the White House.
James Carville
He [Roosevelt] has made some speeches that indicate that he is going quite beyond anything that he advocated when he was in the White House, and has proposed a program which is absolutely impossible to carry out except by a revision of the Constitution.
William Howard Taft
Carter’s done a lot more good since he’s been out of the White House than when he was in it.
Walter Annenberg
What you have is two men seeking the White House; they’re both products of prominent New England families. They both went to private boarding schools. They both went to a prestigious university.
Mark Shields
I want to see a Jew in the White house.
Kinky Friedman
We have to work under the assumption that the things that we fought hard for to protect women will be under assault, and we have to bring all our creativity and our energy to bear to preserve those things, no matter who is in the White House.
Willie Parker
If the White House could do more to tell parents that getting children reading is their business too, we’d see a big difference. Hollywood and the NBA or NFL could step in, too. In England they have an event called Book Day, where every child receives a pound to use at any bookstore.
James Patterson
They plan to ride into the White House on the Sweet Talk Express. Well, think again. Bush and Cheney are not compassionate conservatives. They are ruthless reactionaries.
Patricia Ireland
It is our obligation to stop Hillary Clinton now and never let her get within 10 miles of the White House again.
Chris Christie
He never has made a living. He went from my grandparents’ house to the very regimented military school, back to the house, to my grandfather’s company, to the Trump Organization, which I view as a sinecure for him. And then ‘The Apprentice,’ whatever that was, and the White House.
Mary L. Trump
I guess I would use my son’s word: cool. It was cool to work in the White House.
Alberto Gonzales
What’s new is that the White House itself has now been corporatized. It’s not politicians working for the corporate interests. They are the corporate interests. That’s where Bush came from, and Cheney and Rumsfeld.
Jim Hightower
To the best of my knowledge, I’m the first mom to hold the job of the White House Press Secretary.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders
I was out there with the White House press squad, and after his helicopter took off, and the carpet rolled up…This wasn’t a photograph that others were taking, but I continued to take pictures.
Annie Leibovitz
Economic anxiety might not have won Donald Trump the White House, but much of his strongest support came from more sclerotic rural and industrial areas.
Annie Lowrey
I’ve been to the White House a number of times.
Doris Kearns Goodwin
Since 1980, there have been 91 breaches of security at the White House. Well, 92 if you count George Bush.
David Letterman
Your true nature doesn’t come out. So the gods let you do what you want because free will would be compromised if they showed up at the White House saying, ‘Take us to your leader.
Tarsem Singh
You don’t need 70 people in a White House press conference to tell people what happened there. You need a camera and maybe a couple reporters, and that’s it.
Rush Limbaugh
I want you to remember when our White House reflected the best of who we are, not the worst of what Europe has become.
Mitt Romney
I’m truly a believer that Satan was behind everything that happened in that White House, and now, the Republican party. Anything that is good for the people, they’re against it.
Eddie Griffin
The one thing I didn’t want to do was a show about the White House. I was too close to it.
Jon Lovett
The evil is in the White House at the present time.
Tip O’Neill
This is really what the White House is all about. It’s the “People’s House.” It’s a place that is steeped in history, but it’s also a place where everyone should feel welcome. And that’s why my husband and I have made it our mission to open up the house to as many people as we can.
Michelle Obama
Any time someone carries a picket sign in front of the White House, that is the First Amendment in action.
Julian Bond
The White House is the finest prison in the world.
Harry S Truman
I moved out eventually of the White House and moved into a townhouse with a group of girls while I was in college.
Susan Ford
Toomp produced ‘White House’ on my first record, and we made magic.
Rick Ross
On George W Bush: That man sits at that desk in the White House with the button that can end the world. My father’s younger than him and we don’t give him the controls for the television.
Billy Connolly
Candidates ignore New Hampshire at their own peril. You all remember President Giuliani? He’s done a great job in the White House.
Corey Lewandowski
There is no more important task in Washington than cleaning up the culture of corruption. Yet the president – whose White House has become the cradle of Republican corruption – is not taking responsibility for the costs of that corruption.
Harry Reid
Future of his nation does not depend on what happens at the White House, but what happens at your house
Barbara Bush
John Brennan has been the mastermind of the drone program. He’s the one who’d convene the terror Tuesday meetings at the White House.
Medea Benjamin
President Obama has appointed a new head of the Secret Service. The new Secret Service director was so excited that he jumped over the White House fence for joy.
Conan O’Brien
I wish I had known more firsthand about the concerns and problems of American businesspeople while I was a U.S. senator and later a presidential nominee.
George McGovern
I think on a national level your Department of Law there in the White House would look at some of the things that we’ve been charged with and automatically throw them out.
Sarah Palin
For many, the recent disclosure of massive warrantless surveillance programs of all citizens by the Obama administration has brought back memories of George Orwell’s ‘1984.’ Another Orwell book seems more apt as the White House and its allies try to contain the scandal: ‘Animal Farm.’
Jonathan Turley
I got a message from Downing Street that my picture’s hanging in the White House. Which is weird.
Ben Eine
President Bush said yesterday that it was appropriate for the White House to invoke Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers’s religion in making the case for her to skeptical conservatives, triggering a debate over what role, if any, her evangelical faith should play in the confirmation battle.
Peter Baker
Senate Democrats vowed Sunday to kill President Bush’s energy plan. They think this is their ticket back to the White House in 2004. All they have to do now is figure out a way to get cars to run on beautiful pictures of Alaska.
Argus Hamilton
I was here, and I loaded a shotgun on Independence Day, but I didn’t kill anybody. I didn’t drone any children. I didn’t steal any children’s future. I didn’t sell this country into debt. I didn’t do any of the crimes that the man two blocks over at the White House is responsible for.
Adam Kokesh
I don’t expect that Albert Gore is going to become president, and I certainly hope we never see Tipper Gore in the White House. Can you imagine Tipper saying, “Just say no”?
Frank Zappa
Congressional Republicans have come to understand that their last, best hope of blocking bad policy from the White House is through spending bills.
Mark Meadows
It’s kind of hard to balance school and work sometimes. But sometimes, like, if I’m going to the White House and I’m in there doing a tour and stuff, that’s like school.
Justin Bieber
I’d rather go to the White House Correspondents’ dinner than any awards show.
Scarlett Johansson
Whether it was his ability to turn around the Massachusetts economy or turn around businesses in the private sector, Mitt Romney has demonstrated the leadership that we need in the White House to get the country on the right track.
Lisa Murkowski
There is no method by which an average citizen can effectively fight the White House in the media.
Linda Tripp
When you work in the White House you talk to the White House staff all day, so you’re talking to the guy who handles the congressional liaison and the guy who’s handling domestic politics and the guy who’s handling the American economy and so forth.
Elliott Abrams
I spent a weekend in the White House with President Clinton, back in ’99, I guess. We played golf and just hung out and talked on many subjects. I saw him several times subsequently in L.A. He’s the smartest man I ever met, a great politician. Everybody was star struck around him.
Dennis Quaid
I can’t remember exactly, but the White House is not keen on people going on Fox News. It’s my view that while people in the administration feel that Fox News doesn’t give them a fair shake, the fact of the matter is there are a lot of people who watch Fox News.
Austan Goolsbee
The health care problem is not solved in the white house, its solved in YOUR HOUSE
Tony Horton
As a poor person and someone who now writes extensively about social and economic justice, I’ve often noticed a lack of a focus on poverty appearing in news cycles or in debates among White House contenders.
Stephanie Land
I was involved in an organization called the White House Project, and the woman who ran it introduced me to Bloomberg. I told them, ‘You can pay me zero dollars, but I need you to give me a TV show to anchor, and I need you to hire someone to teach me where the cameras are.’
Stephanie Ruhle
I always enjoyed politics. I worked at the White House recently, primarily for the First Lady. Because of my experience running my travel agency, I was in charge of the files she kept on the Travel Office.
Joseph Force Crater
The President and first lady did hold a private party at the White House over the weekend, but given the private nature of that event, I don’t have a lot of details to discuss from here.
Josh Earnest
With any president it is difficult to predict how the world will be effected by his presence in the white house.
Diahann Carroll
Divine right went out with the American Revolution and doesn’t belong to the White House aides. What meat do they eat that makes them grow so great?
Sam Ervin
From the moment I walked into the White House, it was as if I had no privacy at all.
Nancy Reagan
I’m very happy doing what I do. And if I were in the White House I would be really interested in continuing to do what I do, which is working… That’s a very cold answer, I guess, but I was trying to answer in terms of ambition.
Eunice Kennedy Shriver
I just want to remind people that the task of those who support reproductive rights and reproductive justice didn’t change based on who is in the White House. We have leadership that is not supportive of what we’re trying to do, but the demand for justice shouldn’t be modulated.
Willie Parker
There is a lot of lip service paid in this Congress and downtown at the White House about family values and small business. Who better represents family values and small business than the fishermen and women on the Oregon and California coast.
Peter DeFazio
Shortly after assuming his duties at the White House, Trump hit a home-run by selecting conservative Neil Gorsuch to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court.
Mike Braun
Although the attorney general is a part of the president’s team, you’re really separate and apart. You have a special responsibility as the nation’s chief law enforcement officer. There has to be a distance that you keep – between this department and the White House.
Eric Holder
Hillary showed off a new set of White House china at the mansion’s 200th birthday dinner Thursday. She said she helped design it. It’s thanks to her that all the White House china looks like it’s been glued back together.
Argus Hamilton
I left the White House in 2007. You know, I knew when I went there that it would be for a limited period of time. I was grateful that the average tenure of a white house senior aide is 18 to 20 months. I was there for nearly seven years.
Karl Rove
Though Washington had closed down for the holidays, the next day, December 26, a key message from Hanoi brought Kissinger racing back to his office. It was the signal the White House had anxiously been awaiting; it was also the day of one of the biggest raids by the giant B-52s.
Alistair Horne
You know, people’d always ask “Why is Jesse Jackson running for the White House?” They never seen the house I’m running from.
Jesse Jackson
It was what became something of a pattern in the first couple of years of the Clinton White House and maybe even longer, where information would drip, drip, drip, drip, drip out which would keep stories alive, alive, alive.
Dee Dee Myers
One day in 1984, at the height of his fame, Michael Jackson made a visit to the White House. President and Nancy Reagan may not have dug his music, but they understood the power Mr. Jackson commanded as a common pop-cultural touchstone for just about everyone else.
Monica Crowley
Ultimately, the courts will make the final judgment whether the White House has gone too far. Independent and impartial judges must assess the proper balance between protecting our liberties and protecting our national security.
Edward Kennedy
Moving [to the White House], whatever stresses would be on my husband and me, we could handle; we are grown-ups. But it wouldn’t be until the day that my kids came home and said to me, “I like it here,” that I’d feel like I could breathe and know that we’re all going to be okay here.
Michelle Obama
White House operatives went to great lengths to show Obama shifting focus from wars abroad to domestic issues at home.
Ron Fournier
I asked tough questions of the Obama White House when I was at CNN and nobody freaked out. I start asking tough questions at Fox and everybody freaked out.
Ed Henry
Because of the increase in life longevity, America can now assume that at any given time three, and perhaps four, former presidents will still be alive, even when the current president is occupying the White House.
Tony Campolo
You don’t need to know who’s playing on the White House tennis court to be a good president
James Baker
QUORUM, n. A sufficient number of members of a deliberative body to have their own way and their own way of having it. In the U.S. Senate a quorum consists of the chairman of the Committee on Finance and a messenger from the White House.
Ambrose Bierce
There is absolutely zero chance that ObamaCare will be repealed while Democrats control the Senate and President Obama is in the White House.
Juan Williams
There’s something about a new family moving into the White House that’s kind of interesting, even if you didn’t vote for them.
Larry Wilmore
I’ve spent so many years talking about lame ducks in the White House and Congress, and it’s never occurred to me to find out what the heck it means. It turns out it’s an old English hunting term – something about firing at a duck without quite killing it. In any case, the hobbled duck limps on, at a distinct disadvantage.
Gwen Ifill
When the president of the United States flicks the switch to light up the Christmas tree on the White House lawn, that house ceases to be an American symbol; it becomes a Christian symbol.
Letty Cottin Pogrebin
I think the court will determine that the Faith-Based Initiative that the White House has instituted in the last five years is constitutional, in the context of allowing for broad-based programs to include religious providers.
Jay Alan Sekulow
Many of the accounts of what has happened in the Trump White House are in conflict with one another; many, in Trumpian fashion, are baldly untrue.
Michael Wolff
When Hillary Clinton was in the Clinton White House as first lady, the left – the right accused her of being wide eyed radical lesbian feminist and in some issues, like welfare reform, she pushed back against the new .
David Corn
Kennedy invited us into the White House-the first time in the history of the White House picketers had been invited inside. This made front page headlines.
Peter Coyote
Kennedy was a man who liked writers and even I got invited to the White House
Irwin Shaw
I found that there is very little interest in Washington for true election reform. That neither the White House nor either house of the Congress seems to be as committed to guaranteeing democratic participation in this country as we seem to be in other countries.
DeForest Soaries
If past behavior is any indication, we’re in a lot of trouble with Hillary Clinton in the White House, as well, who has promised to start a no-fly zone in Syria, which amounts to a declaration of war against Russia.
Jill Stein
I don’t think I suffer from Trump derangement syndrome in a sense that I can separate the man from the White House.
Meghan McCain
In 1974, Democrats gained 49 House seats and four Senate seats. It wasn’t just the Watergate scandal that drove Democratic wins, but the sense that Republicans had defended corruption and criminality in the White House.
Rick Wilson
We`re going to put sanity back into the White House.
Donald Trump
I do think that the Constitution and the traditions of this country constrain all of us – those of us in Congress and those of us in the White House – from some of our impulses, shall I say, that we’d like to pursue.
Mitch McConnell
The White House begun airing their TV commercials to re-elect the president, and the John Kerry campaign is condemning his use of 9/11 in the ads. He said, it is unconscionable to use the tragic memory of a war in order to get elected, unless of course, it’s the Vietnam War.
Jay Leno
The White House softball team played the pro-marijuana lobbyists’ team and lost 25-3. Still no word yet on which side President Obama played for.
Jay Leno
If you look at the architecture of Washington, D.C., it is not by mistake that the dome over the Capitol is the very center of the federal city. The White House and the Supreme Court are set about us, satellites to the supreme power of the people expressed in the legislative authority of Congress.
Cathy McMorris Rodgers
I feel like I could run for President. People often laugh, but if I set my mind to it, within the next 15 years I could be in the White House.
Will Smith
Being on ‘House of Cards’ really has given me so much more than just a job; the interactions I have had with real White House correspondents, other journalists and bloggers relating to my character Janine – and their thanking me for representing them – has been extraordinary.
Constance Zimmer
We are owned by propagandists against the Arabs. There’s no question about that. Congress, the White House, and Hollywood, Wall Street, are owned by the Zionists. No question in my opinion. They put their money where their mouth is…We’re being pushed into a wrong direction in every way.
Helen Thomas
I volunteered 35 years ago to go to Vietnam and the guy I was running against got out of going to Vietnam with a trick knee! I was an author of the homeland security bill, for goodness’ sake! But I wasn’t a rubber stamp for the White House. That right there is the epitome of what’s wrong with American politics today!
Max Cleland
[Sean] Spicer`s message echoed what President Trump tweeted.The so-called angry crowds in home districts of some Republicans are actually, in numerous cases, planned out by liberal activists. Sad.But underneath those dismissals, lies and urgency inside the White House to figure this out, and quickly.
Chuck Todd
If you want to – if you want to engage in conspiracy theories that the White House and the vice president intended no one to ever know – like “The New York Times” – we would have been kept in the dark forever. I just think that’s completely irrational.
Kate O’Beirne
Melania [Trump] is terrific. I think that Melania will be outstanding. She just opened up the visitor center, in other words touring of the White House. She, like others that she’s working with, feel very, very strongly about women’s issues, women’s difficulties.
Donald Trump
Trump has benefitted indirectly from a strong belief of evangelicals that the two terms of Barack Obama has led the country to the brink of destruction. Obama was bad enough in their eyes; having the Clintons back in the White House would be the end.
Anthea Butler
In his final remarks to the White House staff, on the day he resigned his office, Nixon applied a version of the lesson to himself. “Always remember, others may hate you, but those who hate you don’t win unless you hate them, and then you destroy yourself.
Nancy Gibbs
My job is to be tech entrepreneur-in-residence at the White House.
Todd Park
The White House and the media need one another in order to be successful in their jobs. The White House depends on the media to make its case to the public; the media need the White House to fill their airtime and news columns.
Eric Alterman
While the White House has condemned anti-Muslim rhetoric as divisive, the administration is also worried such talk will hurt antiterrorism efforts.
Audie Cornish
The Senate is the big prize. Until recently, Democrats felt confident they could get the four seats they needed to take back control if [Hillary] Clinton is in the White House and Vice President Tim Kaine held the tie-breaking vote.
Mara Liasson
The White House is a serious place, with serious people, doing serious work. If you’re not careful, it can grind you down.
Jill Biden
Politics gets me out of bed in the morning It’s what really interests me. I’m a competitor, but I also feel like I’m contributing, whether it’s working on health-care policy in the White House or out here in Chicago.
Stephanie Cutter
When most people see the word “radical,” they think that it must refer to something left wing. Some people also may think of it as referring to far right-wing marginal groups. But here we have a president of the United States [George W. Bush] at the center of power, sitting in the White House, who is a radical.
Sidney Blumenthal
John F. Kennedy brought style and charisma to the White House and a first family that captivated the country: a handsome, witty president, an elegant first lady, and two adorable young children.
Kitty Kelley
Frank Rich, Paul Krugman, Maureen Dowd, a whole host of brilliant, courageous critics say all kinds of things, and he [Barack Obama] treats them with respect. They get invited to the White House. I say the same thing, he talks to me like I’m a Cub Scout.
Cornel West
There will be no whitewash in the White House.
Richard M. Nixon
For some students, school is the only place where they get a hot meal and a warm hug. Teachers are sometimes the only ones who tell our children they can go from an Indian reservation to the Ivy League, from the home of a struggling single mom to the White House.
Denise Juneau
Hillary [Clinton] wins in a landslide, [Donald] Trump has no coattails, the Democrats are gonna win the Senate, they’re close to winning the House back, they’re gonna keep the White House for three terms. It’s gonna be nirvana.
Rush Limbaugh
I’ve interviewed the president in the White House. I’d interviewed major newsmakers and Hollywood actors.
Jane Clayson
When I worked in the White House for President Carter, we tried to do comprehensive tax reform and we made some progress, and other presidents have as well.
David Rubenstein
Every member of Congress and every Senator kind of runs their own race with their own message because they don’t want to necessarily have dictated from the White House what that message should be.
Christopher Michael Cillizza
For sports in general, it’s good to have a person in the White House who’s physically fit, who loves sports, but also understands and knows how to run a country.
Reggie Miller
Historically, the most favorably viewed figure in any administration is the first lady, regardless of her husband’s popularity. That is largely because first ladies avoid the political fray and are ritualistically presented as a warm, human presence in the White House.
Ari Melber
So, President Obama wants to change America. I understand that. We don’t need to change America. We need to change the White House. We need to change the leadership in the White House.
Mario Diaz-Balart
Sir, pay no attention to the people who say the glass is half empty, because 32% means it’s 2/3 empty. There’s still some liquid in that glass is my point, but I wouldn’t drink it. The last third is usually backwash. (Said to President Bush at the White House Correspondents Dinner)
Stephen Colbert
When I worked at the White House in the mid-1990s, I would not have dreamed of sharing my beliefs on faith with my colleagues.
Mike McCurry
I don’t know any member of Congress who ever said, ‘I’m satisfied with the communication that we have from the White House.’
Nancy Pelosi
I would have painted the White House black. I would have!
Dick Gregory
One thing is perfectly clear: We don’t need another China crony in the White House!
Chuck Norris
Jesse has a new dog. You may have noticed that his former pets have been peculiarly unfortunate. When this dog dies every employee in the White House will be at once discharged.
Ulysses S. Grant
Experts always know everything but the fine points. When I took my citizenship exams, no one there knew how the White House came to be called the White House.
Hedy Lamarr
Thanks to our geography and the structure of our economy, Virginia gets a front-row seat to the happenings in Washington. We feel the first impacts, positive or negative, of the decisions made in the White House and on Capitol Hill.
Ralph Northam
We need a fearless fighter in the White House – not just to win this election, but also to restore the character of our nation.
Carly Fiorina
It would be fun to have someone in the White House who has worked in the private sector… and someone who understands that wealth creation is a good thing and they want more of it. Wealth is good.
Michele Bachmann
I vividly remember my first day on the White House staff. My office, of course, was in the Old Executive Office Building. I didn’t rate one in the West Wing; but don’t try to tell me or any of the rest of us working there that we weren’t working in the White House.
John Roberts
I believe whoever is in the White House, God is in charge. That’s me. And I voiced that on TV.
Ernie Johnson Jr.
It was easier to forget, or be dismissive about, transgender issues when there weren’t transgender staffers or interns walking the halls of the White House.
Sarah McBride
I have a very, very great balance sheet, so great that when I did the Old Post Office on Pennsylvania Avenue, the United States government, because of my balance sheet, which they actually know very well, chose me to do the Old Post Office, between the White House and Congress, chose me to do the Old Post Office.
Donald Trump
According to the White House, the president’s proposed 2016-2017 spending would add – get this – $62 billion to the deficit.
John J. McLaughlin
Certainly on a political and a legislative level, Bill Clinton was effective, but the example that he ultimately left, I think for posterity, tragically, is going to begin with that single paragraph lead with the White House intern.
Joe Eszterhas
The White House isn’t the place to learn how to deal with international crisis, the balance of power, war and peace, and the economic future of the next generation.
Joe Biden
America needs an adult in the White House who knows how to deal with China.
John Bolton
Whose leadership, whose judgment, whose values do you want in the White House when that lands like a thud on the oval office desk?
Rahm Emanuel
One of my most often repeated quips was the one I made when former Presidents Carter, Ford and Nixon stood by each other at a White House event. ‘There they are,’ I said. ‘See no evil, hear no evil, and . . . evil.’
Bob Dole
I firmly believe that with President Trump in the White House, we have such a great opportunity as conservatives.
Ralph Norman
Basically, the person in the White House should be principled, should have a philosophy about food that relates directly to organic agriculture. I will continue to push for that.
Alice Waters
A massive power outage in Washington, D.C., today affected a number of federal buildings, including the White House. When asked when they could restore power to the White House, officials said, ‘2016?’
Jimmy Fallon
To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the moon landing, the three astronauts from Apollo 11 visited the White House. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were allowed to set foot inside the White House, while Michael Collins was forced to drive around in circles outside.
Conan O’Brien
On a daily basis I’m covering things that are leaking out of the White House and leaking out what should be closed-door meetings on the Hill. That is not integrity.
Harris Faulkner
If ethics is limited to financial conflicts of interest – that’s really what I did in the Bush White House – that’s a huge problem for me because Trump refused to sell his businesses. We don’t know where he’s getting his financing.
Richard Painter
There has been a growing consensus across the country – from statehouses to the White House and the halls of Congress – that we need to take dramatic steps to improve our secondary schools.
Ruben Hinojosa
We`re going to be opening up the old post office where we spent over $200 million, and built the most magnificent hotel, I think, anywhere in the country on Pennsylvania Avenue right between the White House and congress.
Donald Trump
I have no idea what White House statement was issued, but I stand by it 100 percent.
Richard Darman
Donald Trump is speaking on behalf of the White House, of the executive branch of the United States. Credibility matters.
Jonathan Karl
I have a lifetime of experience that I will bring to the White House. I know Senator McCain has a lifetime of experience that he will bring to the White House. And Senator Obama has a speech he gave in 2002.
Hillary Clinton
Four years in the White House and two presidential campaigns is an awful long time. In politics, every year in the White House is like dog years, six years off your life.
George Stephanopoulos
It is white. – when asked what the White house was like by a student in East London
George W. Bush
White House leaks of classified information put the lives of U.S. service members, intelligence officers, and civilians at risk. That’s why I support a measure passed by the Senate Intelligence Committee to crack down on such leaks.
Peter T. King
I am prepared to do whatever I can do and whatever is reasonable to make sure that it is Hillary who makes it to the White House and not Trump.
J. B. Pritzker
I am heartened by the appointment of Dr. Birx as the Coronavirus response coordinator for the White House. Dr. Birx is a retired Army Colonel and immunologist who was appointed the U.S. Global HIV/AIDS coordinator under the Obama Administration.
Abigail Spanberger
To be sure, every White House tries to limit its exposure to difficult and distracting questions. The Obama administration was scrutinized for its use of late night shows and YouTube chats to get the president’s message across in low-risk situations.
Brian Stelter
If I’m not comfortable, I’m not happy. When I go to the White House, I wear my jeans.
Bobbi Brown
Guns started flying off store shelves just as soon as the black Democrat moved into the White House.
Mike Cooley
My advice to the tea party freshmen: Slow the galloping horses to a trot. Big government was built over decades; it can’t be dismantled in a year, especially when Democrats control the White House.
Ari Fleischer
Actually, my wine was served at the White House twice. Reagan must have been asleep when he ordered it.
Pat Paulsen
Mothers and unmarried women and married women, they’re all welcomed in the Trump White House, and he’s made that very clear to me.
Kellyanne Conway
Officials in every White House crowbar the facts to make their cases.
John Dickerson
The Left wants Islam not only tolerated across the globe but invited and welcomed inside the gates and into our schools, our entertainment, our military our legislatures, and yes, the White House.
Tom Tancredo
The Trump White House would be known for its high placement of females in key roles if the media were even remotely honest about the facts.
Mollie Hemingway
The dream was not to put one black family in the White House, the dream was to make everything equal in everybody’s house.
Al Sharpton
There’s a great book about John Kennedy and his relationship to civil rights called ‘The Bystander.’ The title alone suggests that he did as little as possible, any minimal critical effort, to really facilitate civil rights in the White House.
Michael Eric Dyson
This arch-liar today shows that Britain never was in a position to wage war alone. This gabbler, this drunkard Churchill. And then his accomplice in the White House, this mad fool.
Adolf Hitler
What kind of a world are we going to leave the next generation? I, at least, want my children to look back and say, “My daddy was being arrested at the White House fence and booed off commencement stages. He was trying.”
Chris Hedges
The big guys, the big dogs, are going to own everything from the White House to the courthouse.
Brian Schweitzer
With my own son, my style of mothering has been to bring him everywhere. He’s sitting on my lap during interviews. When I went to the White House to meet President Obama, he was there.
Reshma Saujani
It’s time to replace career politicians with citizen’s politicians. It’s time to elect people who are going to stand up to the Washington elite and stand up to a White House and Congress hell-bent on ramming socialism down our throat
Christine O’Donnell
If you’re in the White House, it’s your house, and you can invite whatever friend you want.
Chevy Chase
The White House has now released military documents that they say prove George Bush met his requirements for the National Guard. Big deal, we’ve got documents that prove Al Gore won the election.
Jay Leno
The American national security state is totally bipartisan. My biggest problem is with the Democrats, like Feinstein and Pelosi, who are defending it because there is a Democrat in the White House, and they are party loyalists and hacks before they are public servants.
Glenn Greenwald
I ascribe to Mark Twain’s theory that the last person who should be President is the one who wants it the most. The one who should be picked is the one who should be dragged kicking and screaming into the White House.
Bill Hicks
By June 2016, candidate Donald Trump had already outlined his seven-point plan on trade, and once in the White House, he kept his word.
Mike Braun
From the moment he took the oath of office in 1993 until he left the White House in 2001, Bill Clinton was a paradox in power. He presided over the United States prosperous and at peace – but never at peace with itself.
Gavin Esler
There’s a communist living in the White House!
Victoria Jackson
It seemed like this was one big Prozac nation, one big mess of malaise. Perhaps the next time half a million people gather for a protest march on the White House green it will not be for abortion rights or gay liberation, but because we’re all so bummed out.
Elizabeth Wurtzel
People who could not even spell the word ‘vote’ or say it in English put a committed socialist ideologue in the White House.
Tom Tancredo
The first novel I wrote, ‘The White House Mess,’ was a comic novel. It came out in 1986. It was a parody in the form of a White House memoir.
Christopher Buckley
The really critical thing isn’t who’s sitting in he White House, but who is sitting in the streets, in the cafeterias, in the halls of government, in the factories. Who is protesting, who is occupying offices and demonstrating ? – those are the things that determine what happens.
Howard Zinn
The State of the Union may look rosy from the White House balcony or the suites of George Bush’s wealthiest donors. But hardworking Americans will see through this president’s efforts to wrap his radical agenda with a compassionate ribbon.
Howard Dean
There’s some bittersweet feelings about leaving the people here [in the White House]. ‘Cause even though all the team you assemble, you know, you’re going to stay in touch with ’em, it’s not the same, you know? The band kind of breaks up.
Barack Obama
It wasn’t until Trump won that I thought back to all the things that I dealt with in the White House and that President Obama dealt with – the political forces, the changes in media and technology, the radicalization of the Right.
Daniel Pfeiffer
Sometimes I wake at night in the White House and rub my eyes and wonder if it is not all a dream.
Grover Cleveland
I was invited back to the White House. I’m excited about that visit as well.
MC Lyte
It was difficult to find my way into ‘I Am Abraham,’ to feel confident enough to inhabit Lincoln’s persona. I began with a prologue in a neutral voice, wrote of Lincoln at the White House with a sly young reporter quizzing him about his humble origins.
Jerome Charyn
I’m the number 1 target of the White House. They can’t get Osama bin Laden; they’re going to get me.
Jean Carnahan
What’s the legacy of President Obama? I think this is just another, another example of passing the buck. It never stops at the White House.
Eric Bolling
The far more likely Trump scenario is this: Chinese leaders realize they no longer have a weak leader in the White House; China ceases its unfair trade practices. America’s massive trade deficit with China comes peacefully and prosperously back into balance, and both the U.S. and Chinese economies benefit from trade.
Peter Navarro
Until the President produces a responsible deficit reduction plan, I’m not going to the White House to negotiate with myself.
Jeff Landry
The White House again refused to turn over discussions Vice President Cheney had with Enron officials over energy policy. Cheney said if he had to disclose every time some business donated a ton of money then came in to write its own policy to govern itself, he wouldn’t get any work done.
Dennis Miller
In politics, every year in the White House is like dog years, it takes off seven years of your life.
George Stephanopoulos
We’re concerned about AIDS inside our White House, make no mistake about it.
George W. Bush
I have respectfully declined the president’s invitation to the White House today.
Jeff Landry
I am in control here, in the White House.
Alexander Haig
We had a dog who was named Pushinka, who was given to my father by a Soviet official. And we trained that dog to slide down the slide we had in the back of the White House. Sliding the dog down that slide is probably my first memory.
John F. Kennedy
My life since the White House has been much more all-encompassing, much more enjoyable. The main thing that I’ve acquired has been access to the poorest and most destitute, forgotten, and suffering people on Earth. It’s not possible for a President to actually know them.
Jimmy Carter
Having Democrats control both houses of Congress and the White House would be a nightmare.
Charlie Kirk
The White House announced on Monday the Prime Minister of Australia will visit President Bush in September. We have a lot in common. Australia started out as a prison colony, while the United States has evolved into one.
Argus Hamilton
Al Gore has found a new job. He is going to teach journalism at Columbia University, which is ironic isn’t it? The guy who did all the coke winds up going to the White House, the guy who didn’t do coke goes to Columbia.
Jay Leno
Your true nature doesn’t come out. So the gods let you do what you want because free will would be compromised if they showed up at the White House saying, ‘Take us to your leader.’
Tarsem Singh
Today was opening day for the new Congress in Washington. And Vice President Joe Biden swore in the new batch of White House fence jumpers.
David Letterman
There mustn’t be a moment when we turn on the TV and think, ‘There’s Trump in the White House’ – that must never feel normal.
Howard Jacobson
I got into the Kennedy White House because at the time I was president of the Women’s National Press Club, and they assigned me to cover the early days of the Kennedy campaign. Jackie especially. Everyone was interested in the family.
Helen Thomas
President Obama’s made the White House really the people’s house. People feel like they’re welcome.
Hillary Clinton
You never know when people with sick minds can destroy your life. It doesn’t matter how well life is going on for you that moment. If that can’t happen in the middle of New York City, it can happen anywhere else. If the terrorists can hit the Pentagon or the White House I don’t see where it’s safe.
Toni Kukoc
My take is this. The Republicans control the Senate. They have the majority of the House, and they have the White House. They can do whatever they want to do, really.
Maxine Waters
There have not been children of comparable youth in the White House since the Kennedy era.
Pierre Salinger
After I left the White House, I kept a foothold in the business of American politics; as a talk-show host, analyst, commentator, speechmaker, and occasional writer. I was no longer a practitioner, but I was still a partisan, a Democrat, a blue-stater through and through.
Dee Dee Myers
Whether you’re a second lieutenant working with a captain and a lieutenant colonel, or a four-star general working with the Office Secretary of Defense and the White House, the decision makers have got to have ground truth. Otherwise, the decisions they make could be flawed – and that can be dangerous.
John F. Kelly
Someone who traffics in much more than what Jeff Sessions said back then will be with the president every day in the White House as his senior strategist.
Lawrence O’Donnell
I can call a march, and thousands come out, and I happen to have access to the White House at the same time.
Al Sharpton
During Grover Cleveland’s second term, in the 1890s, the White House deceived the public by dismissing allegations that surgeons had removed a cancerous growth from the President’s mouth; a vulcanized-rubber prosthesis disguised the absence of much of Cleveland’s upper left jaw and part of his palate.
Robert Dallek
I think more than any point in history… part of the job of the White House press secretary is to rebuild trust with the American people.
Jen Psaki
The White House used to belong to the American people. At least that’s what I learned from history books and from covering every president starting with John F. Kennedy.
Helen Thomas
‘What I would give,’ I thought, ‘to have been present as Elizabeth Keckley measured Mary Lincoln for a new gown, to overhear their conversations on topics significant and ordinary, to observe the Lincoln White House from such an intimate perspective.’
Jennifer Chiaverini
Our hope is not in the man we put in the White House but in the Man we put on the Cross.
Rick Warren
Movement Conservatism was a fringe force from the 1950s until the 1980s, when voters elected Movement Conservative Ronald Reagan to the White House. But even then, their control of the Republican Party was not a given.
Heather Cox Richardson
President Obama had a few historians at the White House for a couple of dinners. I was lucky enough to be one of those asked, and he was very interested in Ronald Reagan, and I came away feeling that.
Douglas Brinkley
The GOP can’t even envision winning the White House if we lose a significant percentage of the Hispanic vote.
Luis Fortuno
Let’s face it. Nobody predicted Trump. He’s a fairytale nightmare that none of us could possibly have imagined. Shame on those 63 million who – especially those Obama voters who crossed over and voted, shame on them for putting this idiot in the White House.
Ron Stallworth
Your commanders have ordered you to storm the White House and to arrest me. But I as the elected President of Russia give you the order to turn your tanks and not to fight against your own people.
Boris Yeltsin
Twitter provides a platform that allows anyone on the planet – from a political activist in the Middle East to an intemperate golfer in the White House – to broadcast his or her thoughts.
Steven Levy
I believe – figuratively, but in a very real way – we need to tent the White House!
Pat Boone
We will reduce the White House staff by 25 percent
William J. Clinton
Remember, the political idea being expressed a year ago was that because the GOP interpreted its 1994 mandate as a call to budget-balancing austerity, the electorate would never give the White House to the GOP if its nominee was also a root-canal austerian.
Jude Wanniski
Inside the White House there were always extreme amounts of doubt about whether they should be escalating in Afghanistan. In fact, most of the president’s advisers said, “This is probably not going to work.” A lot of people in the military said, “This is probably not going to work.”
Michael Hastings
Whose leadership, whose judgment, whose values do you want in the White House when that crisis lands like a thud on the Oval Office desk?
Rahm Emanuel
Congress, the White House and Hollywood, Wall Street are owned by the Zionists.
Helen Thomas
I learned more in those six months [ in the White House] than in the prior six years. I don’t think that anybody who has had the privilege to serve the country at that level should walk out and behave like a crybaby. And I plan to continue to serve the country in other capacities.
Van Jones
President Trump is bringing a very candid – and direct type of leadership to the White House. And in conversations with leaders around the world, frankly, I think they all find it very refreshing.
Mike Pence
As an American I am not so shocked that Obama was given the Nobel Peace Prize without any accomplishments to his name, America gave him the White House based on the same credentials.
Newt Gingrich
During the protracted tooth-and-nail tussle between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in the 2008 Democratic primaries, I was one of those fierce partisans desperate for the first black candidate with a serious shot at the White House to win the nomination.
Lionel Shriver
You don’t have to be a genius to recognize one. If you did, Einstein would never have gotten invited to the White House.
Tom Robbins
Numerous candidates lose their first White House race and try again four years later – but all of them do so after running surprisingly well the first time. No one ever talked about John Connally or Phil Gramm running again.
Steve Kornacki
In the current [Carter] administration, who can use the White House swimming pool and tennis courts is decided at the very highest level. President Ford did not bother himself with such minor details. He let me swim in the pool. He only got upset when I tried to walk across the water.
Henry A. Kissinger
During the fall of my junior year, I interned in Intergovernmental Affairs in The White House with a focus on outreach to local elected officials. Although I hated the menial tasks the job required, it gave me a window into the power of local government.
Michael Tubbs
We can’t have Donald Trump in the White House.
Stephanie March
The truth is that at the White House and in Congress, you are as likely to find sympathy for animal issues among Republicans as among Democrats.
Matthew Scully
I’ve had some wonderful times at the White House. I’ve been with Ford, Carter, Reagan, Clinton and Bush.
Dom DeLuise
I want to tell you how proud I am to be the President of a nation that – in which there’s a lot of Philippine-Americans. They love America and they love their heritage. And I reminded the President that I am reminded of the great talent of the – of our Philippine-Americans when I eat dinner at the White House.
George W. Bush
Mobilize your friends and neighbors to understand that your day-to-day involvement with local government matters far more than a referendum on the White House every four years.
Michelle Wu
I never thought I’d be covering the White House. I never thought I’d be covering the White House for CNN. And I never thought I’d be covering the White House for CNN while Donald Trump was president.
Kaitlan Collins
Celebrating the holidays in the White House over these past eight years has been a true privilege. We’ve been able to welcome over half a million guests… our outstanding pastry chefs have baked 200,000 holiday cookies… and Barack [Obama] has treated the American people to countless dad jokes.
Michelle Obama
If you look at the Constitution, the two clauses of the Constitution make it very clear the president shall nominate, and the Senate shall provide advice and consent. It’s been since 1888 that a Senate of a different party than the president in the White House confirmed a Supreme Court nominee.
Cory Gardner
We are engaged in immediate conversations with the White House on deliberations over a successor whom we hope will continue in the general direction of Attorney General Holder.
Al Sharpton
Do we really want another politician in the White House America can’t trust?
John McCain
It is clear that many of [Republicans] do not want to try to keep Hillary Clinton out of the White House. So if it’s not important to keep her out of the White House, why is it important to elect you?
Rush Limbaugh
You never have a normal family relationship in the White House; it’s an impossible thing to have. You live in a goldfish bubble, and you snatch what you can for a personal life, but you never have a normal, natural existence.
Eleanor Roosevelt
There was an embarrassing moment in the White House earlier today. They were looking around while searching for George Bush’s military records. They actually found some old Al Gore ballots.
David Letterman
The White House is a strange place.
Marlin Fitzwater
Folks here in South Carolina want someone with a backbone, with a spine. Someone who’s going to stand up for them and their families, regardless of who’s in the White House.
Jaime Harrison
It must be remembered that the Bush White House has a separate talent for character assassination that must not be confused with a talent for governance.
Richard Dreyfuss
Voting for Trump will either hasten the return of Jesus, according to evangelical belief, or to allow evangelicals to regain political power in the White House. Either way, it is a win-win situation.
Anthea Butler
Presidential power was overruled by the high bench in July 1974, when President Nixon was ordered to turn over some audio tapes of his White House conversations, including the ‘smoking gun’ tape of June 23, 1972, that revealing the Watergate cover up.
Helen Thomas
All of our presidents come into office looking so vigorous … They grow grayer and grayer, and by the time they leave, they’re as white as the building they live in … I have one big advantage: I’ve been coloring my hair for years. So you’re not going to see me turn white in the White House.
Hillary Clinton
Official motto of the White House economic team: Those who can, do. Those who can’t, fantasize in the classroom, fail in Washington and then return to the Ivy Tower to train the next generation of egghead economic saboteurs. Life is good for left-wing academics. Everyone else pays dearly.
Michelle Malkin
To me, it’s the White House and always will be.
Lew Wasserman
Do you know what White House correspondents call actors who pose as reporters? Anchors.
Jay Leno
And so, as they climb the ladder of achievement, I’d simply say, remember what Barbara Bush told those girls at Wellesley: “What happens in your house is more important than what happens in the White House.”
George H. W. Bush
The White House has finally found one guy that kinda remembers serving with President Bush in the National Guard. Now they just need to find someone who remembers Bush working on an economic plan. … I think the White House spent more money looking for this guy than finding weapons of mass destruction.
Jay Leno
Every White House I have covered since Reagan, when I got here, power has been more concentrated in the White House than the one before.
David Brooks
The White House should always be a friend to American freedom.
Nancy Pearcey
If a 25-year old can’t read and write and he or she isn’t gaining marketable skills, it doesn’t matter if a Republican or a Democrat is in the White House. His or her future will be bleak.
J. C. Watts
Why is this man in the White House? The majority of Americans did not vote for him. Why is he there? And I tell you this morning that he’s in the White House because God put him there for a time such as this.
William G. Boykin
I really want to be governor when I have a partner in the White House.
Jennifer Granholm
To have people to the White House and worry about the price of things is laughable.
Letitia Baldrige
I’m angry that George Bush got to be in the White House, and I’m angry that [Al] Gore wasn’t able to be a better candidate after eight years of a great economy and being an incumbent.
Eddie Vedder
Conservatives looking at presidential candidates have to ask what kind of leader they want sitting in the White House.
Tom Tancredo
What people see the first family do has an effect. And from a slightly different aspect, I think that family living in the White House is going to have a profound effect on many Americans.
George Stevens, Jr.
I don’t particularly want to be in the White House.
Eunice Kennedy Shriver
Setting a tone of inclusiveness and ensuring protection for all begins at the top, whether from the White House or the State House.
J. B. Pritzker
The fact that an African American sits in the White House at the helm of government in the United States of America on this 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation represents both phenomenal political symbolism and a victory of faith in democracy that should not be lost on any American.
If you put Sen. Kerry in the White House, I think you are going to see that another terrorist attack happen … and I don’t want to see another Sept. 11.
Bernard Kerik
Our team at NBC’s White House Unit always has a list of questions prepped and ready to go – for the president, for his aides, or for whoever else we’re able to corner.
Hallie Jackson
In 2003… the White House conspired with an oil-company funded think tank to block a major government scientific report that sought to spell out the dangers of climate change to Americans.
Joseph J. Romm
Melania and the White House had accused me of criminal activity, had publicly shamed and fired me, and made me their scapegoat.
Stephanie Winston Wolkoff
I don’t think that there is a beer summit in the cards for me at the White House.
Rick Santelli
I tell people, ‘If you want to send a message to the White House, call my house.’
Dick Gregory
I will say that I appreciate Hillary Clinton’s awareness and passion for women. I think she is overqualified in the sense that she’s been in the White House, so she knows the drill. I am hopeful that she will continue to support minorities and create better opportunities.
Nia Long
Increasingly, I wonder if there are any outrages that would be sufficiently ominous in their effects upon liberty and unequivocal in their moral perversity to awaken the American people to the tyrannical spirit that envelopes the Clinton White House.
Alan Keyes
I never set out to work in the White House.
Ben Rhodes
Reparations, I believe, are talked about for political reasons, trying to cater for the purpose of getting votes. If Congress was serious about reparations – in ’93 and ’94 the Democrats controlled the House, the Senate and the White House, and not one single Republican vote was needed for reparations.
J. C. Watts
Let’s face it, the White House is a treacherous place.
Michael Caputo
Once at the White House I was asked to conduct the Drum and Bugle Corp. The man just handed me the baton and I finished the song. It was great. I got to keep the baton.
Dom DeLuise
It has become increasingly clear to me that the White House is not interested in good-faith negotiations.
Richard Shelby
Trump flourishes the more the White House press corps is riddled with political activists posing as journalists. But the country might fare better with more informed questions from reporters able to think through issues less politically.
Mollie Hemingway
It was reported today that Michelle Obama wants her mother to move into the White House with them. Yes. This is expected to be the first time Barack uses his veto power.
Conan O’Brien
I’ve driven a Formula One car, flown a helicopter, flown with the Red Arrows, met kings and queens, been to the White House.
Noel Edmonds
When I was in the White House, I was confronted with the challenge of the Cold War. Both the Soviet Union and I had 30,000 nuclear weapons that could destroy the entire earth and I had to maintain the peace.
Jimmy Carter
Under this [Bush] Administration, America’s middle class has been abandoned — its dreams denied, its Main Street interests ignored and its mainstream values scorned by a White House that puts privilege first.
John F. Kerry
When Theodore Roosevelt was in the White House, he confessed that if he could be right 75 percent of the time, he would reach the highest measure of his expectation. . . . If that was the highest rating that one of the most distinguished men of the twentieth century could hope to obtain, what about you and me?
Dale Carnegie
I had worked for George Bush as a speechwriter, and I read a lot of White House memoirs. They all have two themes: ‘It Wasn’t My Fault’ and ‘It Would Have Been Much Worse if I Hadn’t Been There.’
Christopher Buckley
I’ve covered the White House and been yelled at by presidents.
Campbell Brown
The good thing about Cruz is we know who he is today, and we’ll know exactly who he’ll be in the White House.
Bill Flores
Memo to White House: Calling voters stupid is not a winning strategy.
Karl Rove
Phones rang constantly, as if the White House was conducting some kind of pardon telethon.
Barbara Olson
Page one of any economic plan to get America working is to give a pink slip to the current resident in the White House.
Rick Perry
If the Trump White House and their allies in the media want to have this conversation about decency, I welcome them to the table to talk about it. But there’s a bunch of stuff that they need to get caught up on before we get to a comedian at the White House dinner.
Jake Tapper
I never dreamed I would one day work at it White House.
Karen Hughes
Now that my wine has been served in the White House, why not me? Who could talk to farmers better than I? Somebody even asked me the other day if I had anything in my platform about taxes. ‘Hell yes,’ I said. ‘Great state. But I wouldn’t want to live there.’
Pat Paulsen
Bush is a frat boy in the White House but we’ve had that before. But I wasn’t one of those people that was threatening to leave the country. By the way none of those people have left the country. Alec Baldwin is still here.
Harry Shearer
The thing with ‘The West Wing’ is that the fantasy was legitimately better than the reality – these were smarter, better people than their real-life counterparts, working together at a better White House than the one we had.
Alex Pareene
If you want to understand what is going on in the White House today, you have to begin with Barack Obama.
Dinesh D’Souza
The fact is, if our primary legislative goals are to repeal and replace the health spending bill; to end the bailouts; cut spending; and shrink the size and scope of government, the only way to do all these things it is to put someone in the White House who won’t veto any of these things.
Mitch McConnell
I worked for the Office of Management and Budget in the White House, on nuclear energy policy. But I decided it would be much more fun to have a specialty food store, so I left Washington D.C. and moved to the Hamptons. And how glad I am that I did!
Ina Garten
It was impossible for Hillary Clinton to have chosen a path to the White House that bypassed the loathing, jeering derision and gendered stereotyping built on two centuries of male power. What was interesting was how hard she tried to do just that.
Rebecca Traister
It was a show where you were given a quote out of current events and you had to identify who said it. I was reading eight newspapers a day and had compiled a file of about 300 quotes. I really had to do my research. The White House press didn’t have to bone up on any of it.
June Lockhart
I will seek the presidency with nothing to fall back on but the judgment of the people, and nowhere to go but the White House or home.
Bob Dole
I happen temporarily to occupy this big White House. I am living witness that any one of your children may look to come here as my father’s child has.
Abraham Lincoln
I have a running conversation with a couple of colleagues. Mike Schmidt’s one of them; some on my White House team are others; Alex Burns on the politics team is another. That just helps me not lose my place, right? We’re just constantly talking about what we’re hearing and where things are.
Maggie Haberman
Congress, the White House, and Hollywood, Wall Street, are owned by the Zionists.
Helen Thomas
I think that the public debate that we had on the Iran deal was very important. That’s probably one of the most consequential things most of us will ever vote on ; a nuclear arms control agreement with a mortal enemy. And the White House – despite all their efforts – failed miserably.
Tom Cotton
We’re never going to satisfy the White House press corps and their desires for access. And I think there have been mistakes made in the past of trying to do that.
Jen Psaki
Earlier today, the White House released President Bush’s tax return. Not surprisingly, under dependents, the president listed Iraq
Conan O’Brien
I do not speak for the White House correspondents association. I`m not a member.
Bill Press
I’m the only fighter to ever go to the White House and meet with a sitting president.
Colby Covington
It is an abuse of power, when you are President of the United States, to use the White House to single out a single news organization, and castigate them and try to delegitimize them.
Monica Crowley
Why don’t they go ahead and change the name of the White House to the West House. They want to do away with the heritage of White Settlement and destroy the history of White Settlement.
Alan Price
I worked on Capitol Hill, I worked in the White House and I’ve worked in politics enough to be familiar with the basic broadstrokes of public policy.
Margaret Hoover
AP promoted me to the White House beat because I knew Clinton, his family, friends, and staff better than anybody in the national press corps. Those contacts helped me break a few stories and get my career in Washington jump-started.
Ron Fournier
We suffer most when the White House busts with ideas.
H. L. Mencken
The Republican Party cannot win the White House anymore with just conservative and Republican votes.
Rush Limbaugh
We have had a great relationship with the White House.We just had every cabinet person designee of ours meet with the cabinet members of the [Barack] Obama administration on Friday. I’ve met numerous times with Denis McDonough, they’ve been nothing but helpful.
John Lewis
I’m a big believer in the transatlantic relationship. I have to work with whoever is in the White House.
Kyriakos Mitsotakis
There’s no job that will humble you like the White House press secretary job.
Dana Perino
I do think it’s true that a huge amount of the oversight that the White House engages in with respect to the Executive Branch is out of fear that somebody’s going to do something crazy and drive the president off a cliff.
Donald Verrilli Jr.
The solidarity – now, you can`t challenge [Donald Trump] until he gets there [White House], but let me tell you, we are united. We are going to do our job.
Bill Press
I met Donald Trump in 2003 on a reality show. Could you ever imagine then that we would end up in the White House together?
Omarosa Manigault Newman
I can’t really criticize the Tea Party people, because I came into the White House pretty much on the same basis that they have become popular. That is dissatisfaction with the way things are going in Washington and disillusionment and disencouragement about the government.
Jimmy Carter
John McCain is now openly endorsing the policies of the Bush-Cheney White House and promising to actually continue the same policies over again? Hey, I believe in recycling but that’s ridiculous.
Al Gore
When Trump took office, it didn’t matter if you’d covered the White House for 10 years or 10 minutes. No one knew what to expect. We would be told about press conferences a few minutes before.
Kaitlan Collins
The moment I decided to blow the whistle on a lot of the corruption going on in the White House, there are protections that are afforded to me.
Omarosa Manigault Newman
While I’m critical to the Bush presidency, it’s been enormously beneficial for Salon because we’re seen as kind of an aggressive watchdog on the Bush White House. Particularly since Florida, our readership hit a whole new level, and we held onto those readers.
David Talbot
The White House has announced that they no longer recognize Fox as a news organization, which puts them about eight years behind the rest of us.
David Letterman
The Democrats and the mainstream media shouldn’t be so quick to mock White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders for suggesting that President Trump was chosen by God to lead this country.
Paula White
The Obama administration appears to regard intelligence leaks and briefings more or less like briefings by the Democratic National Committee or White House flack Jay Carney. You use any information at hand, classified or not, and you spin it any way you like, fairly or not.
Elliott Abrams
This week a man was arrested for jumping over the White House fence and trying to spray paint a political message. If that guy really wanted to get a message to the president, he could have just written it in an email to literally anyone.
Jimmy Fallon
I admired the way McCain worked on campaign finance reform. I admired the way Nancy Pelosi stiffened the Democrats’ spine during the health care debate. I admire the way Barack Obama has raised a dog in the White House without ever putting it on the roof of the car for a vacation drive.
Gail Collins
Now we have reason to be grateful once again that Al Gore is not the man in the White House, and never will be.
William Bennett
The campaign for the White House is heating up with John Kerry taking heat for throwing his Vietnam medals away, getting a $1000 haircut, and wearing a 1970s wig known as ‘the Leno.’ There are really two sides to this story. And America can’t wait for Kerry to present both of them.
David Letterman
George W. Bush was a silver spoon dolt with no record to speak of other than bankruptcy and selling tropical plants, and we let him sail into the White House, but Barack talks about religious fundamentalism and guns being prevalent in poor areas, and we roast him for weeks?
Adam McKay
One: Make Congress and the White House obey the same Obamacare rules you do. Two: Obama let business off for a year; we want workers to be let off for a year too. That’s the GOP plan. What part don’t you like?
David Gelernter
I wish I had known more firsthand about the concerns and problems of American businesspeople while I was a U.S. senator and later a presidential nominee. That knowledge would have made me a better legislator and a more worthy aspirant to the White House.
George McGovern
I write to withdraw as a nominee to serve as an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States. … I am concerned that the confirmation process presents a burden for the White House and our staff that is not in the best interest of the country.
Harriet Miers
The Frist fairness rule guarantees up-or-down votes for every circuit court or Supreme Court nomination, regardless of which party controls the Senate or the White House.
Mitch McConnell
Bill Clinton beat Bush’s father, President George H.W. Bush, for the White House in 1992 by focusing on ‘the economy, stupid’ – and Clinton’s victory led, in time, to the longest sustained boom in American history.
Nigel Hamilton
On the ‘Face the Nation’ platform we are pretty consistently talking to White House officials most Sundays.
Margaret Brennan
Senator Bernie Sanders saying in effect that he wants Washington to operate under the old rules, where someone like Steve Bannon would never be allowed to visit the White house, never mind work there.
Lawrence O’Donnell
We can move America forward with a strong middle class. We can move America forward with a strong Democratic majority in the Senate. And together we can move America forward with Barack Obama in the White House.
Harry Reid
Bran was stripping her futon down to the bare mattress when she entered her apartment. It was sort of like watching the president mowing the White House lawn or taking out the trash.
Patricia Briggs
The White House was signaling that the threat posed by Saddam Hussein was of such urgency that it had priority over the crushing of al Qaeda.
Bob Graham
Do you really want to put a woman into the White House who supports the greatest assault on women of all? And that is murdering them in the womb before they have a chance to be born.
Robert Jeffress
Let’s be very honest about what this is about. It’s not about bashing Democrats, it’s not about taxes, they have no idea what the Boston tea party was about, they don’t know their history at all. This is about hating a black man in the White House. This is racism straight up.
Janeane Garofalo
I guess the most famous person I was so extremely exhilarated by being with – and actually sat next to her at a luncheon at the White House – was Mrs. Obama.
Tim Gunn
You couldn’t even prove the White House staff sane beyond a reasonable doubt.
Edwin Meese
For some of us it seems like yesterday when Ike was in the White House, the U.S. Senate censured Joe McCarthy, and the Supreme Court unanimously ruled that racial segregation in public school was unconstitutional.
Malcolm Forbes
It is long overdue that we have a woman as a legitimate contender for the White House. But Hillary Clinton is the definition of the establishment so many are determined to reject.
Gary Johnson
Most of my time at the White House, I wrote very unfunny speeches, but every year, I would work on the correspondents’ dinner, which was a reminder of this other kind of writing that I loved to do.
Jon Lovett
I have personal experience dancing with someone who is a Republican and someone who worked for the White House.
Cheryl Burke
If fences don’t work, why is there one around the White House.
Charles Krauthammer
Mr. Truman studiously avoided giving power to his White House staff that has been characteristic of recent administrations. Staff people in the White House, with no responsibility but incredible authority is one of the reasons we’re now in so much trouble.
Stuart Symington
A petition to have Justin Bieber deported got over 100,000 signatures, which means the White House now has to legally rule on it. So finally a chance for Obama to issue an executive order that both Republicans and Democrats can agree on.
Jay Leno
I really don’t think there’s a world in which you can do anything with anybody. Because we’re in the world of the White House, I think there are certain things you can do, and larger things that can happen, but I don’t think you can do anything.
Shonda Rhimes
Your success as a family… our success as a nation… depends not on what happens inside the White House, but on what happens inside your house.
Barbara Bush
There’s no way that I could be the president. You can’t have a pacifist in the White House… I’m an actor. This is what I do for a living.
Martin Sheen
And who knows? Somewhere out in this audience may even be someone who will one day follow in my footsteps, and preside over the White House as the President’s spouse. I wish him well!
Barbara Bush
President Bush said this Iraq situation looks like ‘the rerun of a bad movie.’ Well sure, there’s a Bush in the White House, the economy’s going to hell, we’re going to war over oil. I’ve seen this movie, haven’t I?
Jay Leno
When I was growing up, we learned our history almost as lives of the saints. And it came as a shock, “Oh, Jefferson had slaves?” It always comes as a shock to us that elevation to the White House didn’t somehow cleanse them of all their deep character flaws.
Harry Shearer
We’ve got to realize there’s something bigger than who is in the White House. And that is the spirit of camaraderie and peace that keeps our nation together.
Max Lucado
Whenever we have had a need for a national security or public safety issue, Congress has always followed the recommendations of the White House, regardless of who is in control, giving them the resources to keep America safe and to enforce our laws.
Jim Sensenbrenner
We need a woman in the White House right now. I really think that women want to work together.
Gretchen Carlson
It is a bizarre thought that in this [U.S. 2008] presidential cycle we could have had a woman in the White House we might have a black man in the White House but if either of them had said they were atheists neither of them would have had a hope in hell.
Julian Barnes
We shall sooner have the fowl by hatching the egg than by smashing it.
Abraham Lincoln, White House speech 11 April 1865.
Or arm th’ obdured breast
With stubborn patience as with triple steel.
John Milton
I’m going to do everything I can to help Hillary Clinton get elected and I’m going to do everything I can to make sure that Donald Trump never comes within shouting distance of the White House.
Elizabeth Warren
Once the day’s work starts there is little chance to walk, to ride or to take part in a game. Taking walks or rides early in the morning is a lonesome business, and the inevitable Secret Service guard when the president leaves the White House grounds is not enlivening company.
Herbert Hoover
I said in 2004,in fact a group was sent to me from the White House to try talk to me, because I was getting a lot of publicity.I said it in 2004, you’re going to destabilize the Middle East, Iran is going to take over Iraq… and somebody else is going to help and that turned out to be ISIS. It’s an exact.
Donald Trump
I’m working alongside the White House and other members in the House to lessen the tax burden that currently weighs on so many Oklahomans.
Markwayne Mullin
National security advisors, like White House Chiefs of Staff, their job generally if they`re – if they`re competent and qualified and effective is to be honest brokers in the White House.
Lawrence O’Donnell
Over the weekend, of course, down there in Washington, D.C., they had the big White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Do you know who was really funny? President Obama. So funny, in fact, he has already been promised ‘The Tonight Show’ in five years.
David Letterman
I think that scandal and intrigue and all of those sort of things that occur behind closed doors – whether it’s on the Hill or in the White House – people all find intriguing.
Judy Smith
We absolutely look at larger trends and reactions on Twitter here at the White House.
Daniel Pfeiffer
The leadership for civil rights has to take place in the White House or it is going to take place in the streets.
Hubert H. Humphrey
In an interview, President Obama said he recently deejayed a small dance party at the White House. Obama has a lot in common with deejays. He takes requests and then completely ignores them.
Jimmy Fallon
Even though Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, you now have Republicans in charge of the White House, the Congress, a majority of governors, more governors than they’ve had in 100 years, more state houses than they’ve ever had before.
George Stephanopoulos
I’d worked at the White House for two years, and I’d read a bunch of White House memoirs because everybody who works at the White House, even for five minutes, writes a memoir usually not less than 600 pages long – and never without the word ‘power’ in the title.
Christopher Buckley
Anybody who gets into bed and turns out the lights the first night in the White House probably feels a little bit of a start, where you say, “Goodness … ”
Barack Obama
[White House] feels even more like home now because you have all these memories that were formed watching your kids grow up.
Barack Obama
So with the end of the Cold War, it became increasingly obvious that there was no basis upon which any decision was being made, not in the White House, and certainly because of that, not in the Congress.
Malcolm Wallop
One lesson I have learned the hard way, and there will not be any such thing in the White House. Although, I am quick to add, there’s no evidence that it was ever hacked. And unfortunately, you can’t say that for a lot of the government.
Hillary Clinton
So the America I loved still exists, if not in the White House or the Supreme Court or the Senate or the House of Representatives or the media. The America I love still exists at the front desks of our public libraries.
Kurt Vonnegut
Today Prince William went to Washington, D.C., and he met with President Obama. He said, ‘It feels weird being in the White House because I’m not an American.’ And then Prince William said, ‘Yeah, me too.’
Craig Ferguson
The White House is now essentially a TV performance.
Edmund Snow Carpenter
One of the principles of White House coverage is that a wide variety of news outlets should be represented at briefings and press conferences.
Brian Stelter
I think everybody is covering their [posteriors] with the Enron scandal and it was very convenient that Sept. 11 came along to deflect the fact that they should never have been in the White House in the first place. What happened in the election was completely corrupt.
Sandra Bernhard
So, when I saw Congressman Bishop smiling at the White House after voting to gut protections for pre-existing conditions, something inside me broke.
Elissa Slotkin
The behavior of the crowd at Churchill Downs is like 100,000 vicious Hyenas going berserk all at once in a space about the size of a 777 jet or the White House lawn.
Hunter S. Thompson
Press passes can’t be that hard to come by if the White House allows that old Arab Helen Thomas to sit within yards of the President.
Ann Coulter
As our boys and men are all expecting to be Presidents, so our girls and women must all hold themselves in readiness to preside inthe White House; and in no city in the world can honest industry be more at a discount than in this capital of the government of the people.
Jane Swisshelm
I think it’s time we had a president who carried the same life experiences into the White House as most ordinary Americans.
Dick Gephardt
I’m really lucky to have colleagues in the White House press corps who are both amazing mothers and amazing journalists. Their collective wisdom has proven invaluable in my own journey.
Hallie Jackson
Do you remember when we picketed the White House in 1965?
Barbara Gittings
We’ve been waiting since 1918 for the Boston Red Sox to win the World Series, and … if I had a choice between the White House and the World Series this year, I’m going to take the White House. How’s that?
John F. Kerry
The White House is now urging Americans not to ‘read too much’ into last week’s jobs report. In fact, they said it would be best if you didn’t read it at all.
Jay Leno
The White House approved an exemption in Obamacare coverage for Congress and members of their staff. Members complained that the Affordable Care Act will cost them thousands extra a year in premiums. Wait a minute. It’s their bill. If it’s too expensive, why did they name it the Affordable Care Act?
Jay Leno
If I am communicating to my readers exactly what the White House believes on any certain issue, that’s reporting to them an unvarnished, unfiltered version of what they – the Administration – believe.
Jeff Gannon
We’re up against the conventional thinking that says your ability to lead as president comes from longevity in Washington or proximity to the White House. But we know that real leadership is about candor and judgment and the ability to rally Americans from all walks of life around a common purpose, a higher purpose.
Barack Obama
I am a reality TV legend. I am most famous for the first season of ‘The Apprentice,’ and then I had an opportunity to work in Washington in the Trump White House.
