Quote of the day
Robert Redford


"I just think Trump is who he is. You can’t blame him for being who he is. He’s always been like that. He’s our fault - that’s how I see it. We let him come to where he is. I’m not so interested in blaming him; that’s being done enough by others. I’m more interested in: How did this happen? We’ve lost our moral foundation, which allows us to go this far over. So I don’t blame him. I just think he is what he is. We’re the ones who let that happen. We should be looking at ourselves."
