[President Trump, in an exclusive interview with Megyn Kelly:] "I admit, I was a little put out when the former speaker said that Ted Cruz was Satan incarnate, or something like that. I mean, what, me versus the cuban with the funny face? If anyone should be compared to Satan, and I mean in a good way, the best way, it's me."
[Satan speaking at press conference at Yale Divinity School:] "I just want to say, for the record, that there is no affiliation between President Trump, the Trump campaign, its affiliates, super PACS or other supporters, and me, my position or my office."
[Senator McConnell and Representative Ryan - once again responding to reporters' questions:]
"Senator, is there any basis to the rumors that Satan is on the short list of the President's nominees to fill Justice Scalia's seat on the Supreme Court?"
"I haven't heard anything about that."
"Senator, if it's true, do you have any comment?"
"I don't know the individual you named personally."
"Would you take a meeting with him? You refused to meet with Merrick Garland."
"I have no comment on that."
"Congressman Ryan, what about you? Is it appropriate in your opinion for the President to nominate the Devil for a position on the Supreme Court? Or to a cabinet post?"
"Well, I . . ."
