    Other possibilities: “Can I see your birth certificate sonny? or maybe “Good to see you again, Clay!”

    Trump: Did you know there is a 9000% profit margin in bottled water?

    Tillis, Hell yeah we knew that, it’s why we’re after the Asheville Water supply. It’s pristine ya know. We can make big bucks off that fact.

    “Tom, normally my clammy hands creep people out, but, I see by the look on your face, you’re actually enjoying this.”

    Trump to Tillis, “Your ‘ people first’ agenda is as genuine as my hair”.
