Who got the Quote of the Week in today’s episode?

“I think the United State’s needs to step up its game.”
Raquel Castañeda-López, on the U.S. response to the mideast refugee crisis

“Detroit needs more everybody.”
Nancy Kaffer, on whites moving into the city

“8,000 white people moved into the city last year. So what? It hasn’t solved any of the problems we have, it’s not going to solve any of the problems we have. The only reason I think that it becomes a newsworthy item is to sell the idea that white people are the solution.”
Vaughn Derderian, on whites moving to the city

“I have a problem with being (too) honest”
Raquel Castañeda-López, on what would happen if Politifact rated her statements’ veracity
