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,
"Tonight's speech from the president will be far less important than past presidential addresses for one very simple reason: This president has shown ... that there is a yawning gap between what he says and what his administration actually does for working Americans."
- Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, on President Donald Trump's address to Congress.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
Tonight's speech from the president will be far less important than past presidential addresses for one very simple reason, I don't like him and we Democrats will do everything possible to prevent his administration from actually getting things done for working Americans.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"I will not allow the mistakes of recent decades past to define the course of our future. For too long, we've watched our middle class shrink as we've exported our jobs and wealth to foreign countries. We've financed and built one global project after another, but ignored the fates of our children in the inner cities of Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit -- and so many other places throughout our land. "
- President Donald Trump in his address to Congress.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
I will not allow the mistakes of globalism of both Republican and Democratic presidents, senators and representatives that watched us nation build other countries' infrastructure while our middle class shrank as we've exported their jobs and wealth to foreign countries so lobbyists and politicians could profit.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"To anyone in Congress who does not believe we should enforce our laws, I would ask you this question: what would you say to the American family that loses their jobs, their income, or their loved one, because America refused to uphold its laws and defend its borders?"
- President Donald Trump in his address to Congress.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
I would ask my Democrat amigos what they would say to the American family that loses their jobs, their income, or their loved one to illegal immigrants, because America refused to uphold its laws and defend its borders?


WHAT THEY SAID,
"It's been a little over a month since my inauguration, and I want to take this moment to update the Nation on the progress I've made in keeping those promises. Since my election, Ford, Fiat-Chrysler, General Motors, Sprint, Softbank, Lockheed, Intel, Walmart, and many others, have announced that they will invest billions and billions of dollars in the United States and will create tens of thousands of new American jobs. The stock market has gained almost three trillion dollars in value since the election on November 8th, a record. We've saved taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars by bringing down the price of the fantastic, and it is a fantastic, new F-35 jet fighter, and will be saving billions more dollars on contracts all across our Government. "
- President Donald Trump in his address to Congress.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
I am terrific, by everybodyís count; I am the best at keeping jobs in America. Thereís never been a president that knows the economy and jobs like Donald Trump. The stock market has gained almost three trillion dollars in value since the election because of me the stock market is going to be spectacular. We are saving billions of dollars all across our government, itís amazing. I'm going to be one of the great presidents of the United States of America, I am fantastic. Mount Rushmore here I come!


WHAT THEY SAID,
"This speech will be forgotten in a day or two. Where is the action doing things to help working people?"
- Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, on President Donald Trump's address to Congress.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
I smoke a lot of pot and I have forgotten most of his speech already. Where is the action doing things to help working people? There isn't any because I have tied up his nominees wasting Congress' precious time.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"I donít honor him, I donít respect him and I donít want to be involved with him,"
- Democratic Representative Maxine Waters on why she didn't attend the president's address to Congress.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
Don't expect me to do anything in Congress for the next 4 to 8 years except oppose the president and the Republicans.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"Solving these and so many other pressing problems will require us to work past the differences of party. It will require us to tap into the American spirit that has overcome every challenge throughout our long and storied history."
- President Donald Trump in his address to Congress.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
Solving these and so many other pressing problems will require us to work past the differences of party. I am talking to you Chuck Schumer!


WHAT THEY SAID,
"I am going to bring back millions of jobs."
- President Donald Trump in his address to Congress.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
I am going to bring back millions of jobs. The job market will be spectacular. You'll see it will be terrific.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"Tonight, I am also calling on this Congress to repeal and replace Obamacare --- with reforms that expand choice, increase access, lower costs, and at the same time, provide better healthcare. "
- President Donald Trump in his address to Congress.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
I am calling on this Congress to repeal and replace Obamacare. I can get the Republicans to repeal it but I need the Democrats to replace Obamacare. So we probably just repeal it.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"This was a mission that was started before I got here. This was something that was, you know, just ó they wanted to do. They came to see me and they explained what they wanted to do, the generals, who are very respected. My generals are the most respected that we've had in many decades, I would ó I believe. And they lost Ryan. "
- President Donald Trump, responding to a Miami Herald report that featured criticism of the president by the father of the Navy SEAL killed in the botched Yemen raid.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
The buck does not stop here it stops at the most respected generals, my generals who are the best generals. They are terrific but it is their fault not mine.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"HBCUs are real pioneers when it comes to school choice,"
- Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, in statement on historically black colleges and universities.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
HBCUs are real pioneers when they really had no school choice but to go to their own schools.


WHAT THEY SAID,

- Subway spokesman Kevin Kane in an email to ConsumerAffairs.com, responding to Lab tests by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation indicating that a sample of Subwayís chicken strips are 42.8 percent chicken DNA.

Our chicken is 100% white meat however it depends on your definition of what is, is.
