I've never met Vladimir Putin, but I know enough about him to know he's a gangster

  • Marco Rubio

First of all, yes we've stolen, yes we've lied to the American people

  • Mike Huckabee

You find a Democrat that's for cutting taxes - for cutting $10, I'll give 'em a warm kiss

  • Jeb Bush

As far as the wall is concerned, we're gonna build a wall. We're gonna have a big fat beautiful door in the middle of that wall... and Mexico's going to pay for the wall

  • Donald Trump

This five minute video from Gawker is a not-so welcome reminder about the state of American politics.
