“After the election, 20 states said they’ve got to get out. They said, ‘We can’t take it anymore,’ so 20 states are working on seceding from the United States. We’re facing real economic problems, so take those 20 states that want to leave and charge them $10,000 apiece.” –David Letterman
“Some more good news – the president announced today he is not going to raise taxes on the entire 1 percent, just Donald Trump.” –Jay Leno
