WHAT THEY SAID
&
WHAT THEY MEANT

We all have met people that say one thing and mean another. Many well-known people have spoken out on various topics. We have listed some quotes and what we believe was actually meant.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"My response is heís a genius,"
- Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, on a New York Times report that Donald Trump may not have paid taxes for years.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
I wish I was that smart.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"Some are new to politics completely. They are children of the great recession, and they are living in their parentsí basement. So if youíre feeling that youíre consigned to being a barista or, you know, some other job that doesnít pay a lot and doesnít have much of a ladder of opportunity attached to it, then the idea that maybe, just maybe, you could be part of a political revolution is pretty appealing."
- Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, on Bernie Sanders' supporters.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
Bernie Sanders' supporters are lowlife, know nothing kids living in their parentsí basement and who work in coffee shops.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"I see a straight line from the announcement of Sarah Palin as the vice-presidential nominee to what we see today in Donald Trump, the emergence of the Freedom Caucus, the tea party, and the shift in the center of gravity for the Republican Party. Whether that changes, I think, will depend in part on the outcome of this election, but itís also going to depend on the degree of self-reflection inside the Republican Party. There have been at least a couple of other times that Iíve said confidently that the fever is going to have to break, but it just seems to get worse."
- President Barack Obama in an interview with New York Magazine's Jonathan Chait.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
I see a straight line from the announcement of Hillary Clinton as the presidential nominee to what we see today in Bernie Sanders, the emergence of socialism, Black Lives Matter and the shift in the center of gravity for the Democratic Party. I think, will depend in part on the outcome of this election, but itís also going to depend on the degree of self-reflection inside the Democratic Party. There have been at least a couple of other times that Iíve said confidently that the fever is going to have to break, but it just seems to get worse.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"He started his business with $14 million, borrowed from his father, and he really believes that the more you help wealthy people, the better off we'll be and that everything will work out from there. I don't buy that. I have a different experience."
- Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, on her rival Donald J Trump's experience.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
I have a different experience. The man I married after college became a governor and then the president of the United States so I had to earn everything I did.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"Not sure anybody is more qualified than Hillary Clinton to be president of the United States."
- Libertarian vice presidential nominee Bill Weld during an interview with MSNBC.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
Hillary Clinton is way more qualified than Donald Trump or my Libertarian running mate Gary Johnson.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"Clear eyed and tough on national security issues."
- Republican and former Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff on Hillary Clinton and why he will vote for her.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
She is a neolib and I am a neocon; together we can militarize and rule the world.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"I'm under a routine audit. And it'll be released. And -- as soon as the audit's finished, it will be released."
- Republican presidential candidate Donald J Trump, on releasing his taxes.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
The audit should be finished just after the election and I will release them at that time.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"She didn't hear the gunshot, didn't hear the sirens coming up behind her just prior to the shot,"
- Scott Wood, attorney for Tulsa police officer Betty Shelby who shot an unarmed Terence Crutcher.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
She didn't hear anything so she couldn't see that he was unarmed.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"I guess I'm having an Aleppo moment."
- Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson, when asked who his favorite foreign leader was.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
I guess I'm an idiot; I don't know any world leaders. Man I could use a joint right about now.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"When I was a young woman, the now-candidate humiliated me, insulted me, disrespected me publicly, as he usually did in private in the cruelest way,"

WHAT THEY SAID,

- Sasha Eisenberg, Bloomberg news reporter on PBS' NewsHour.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
If you vote early, you have a tendency to do so, which makes you an early voter.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"I'd be happy to slaughter them. At least if Germany had Hitler, the Philippines would have (me). You know my victims, I would like to be all criminals, to finish the problem of my country and save the next generation from perdition."
- Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte, comparing himself to Adolf Hitler.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
I am the second coming of Adolf Hitler.
