Quoted @FrankLuntz

These words are inscribed on the wall at Auschwitz, where a memorial is maintained so we never forget.

Leaving most monuments in place while stating the inhumanities associated with them is a better lesson for future generations than tearing them down indiscriminately in anger.

Whatever your position on Washington and Jefferson monuments - Auschwitz is not a monument. It’s the site of a concentration camp. It has gas chambers and ovens. Obscene comparison.

Quoted @thehill

Sen. Tom Cotton on #DCstatehood: "Would you trust Mayor Bowser to keep Washington safe if she were given the powers of a governor? Would you trust Marion Barry?"

And you, @TomCottonAR, would you trust Donald Trump to be President?
