QUOTABLES


Sean Doolittle won't go to the White House
"My wife and I stand for inclusion and acceptance, and we’ve done work with refugees, people that come from, you know, the ‘shithole countries,” Doolittle said, referring to Trump’s comments about Haiti, El Salvador and African nations in a January 2018 meeting. “At the end of the day, as much as I wanted to be there with my teammates and share that experience with my teammates, I can’t do it. I just can’t do it.” -- Washington Post
Union V.P. Stacy Davis Gates
... called it a “sad day” and criticized Lightfoot for taking “vengeance” on teachers and students. But then added, “We have a better Chicago Public Schools as a result of the last 10 days." -- Tribune
Union Pres. Jesse Sharkey
...said the last two weeks have been “tense” but added that “it’s not about me or the mayor. It’s about the members of the Chicago Teachers Union." -- Tribune
 Mayor Lori Lightfoot
"It was a hard-fought discussion. It took us a lot of time to get there. But I think this is the right thing ultimately for our city, and I’m glad that this phase is over.” -- Tribune
California Gov. Gavin Newsom fires back at Trump
“You don’t believe in climate change,” Newsom tweeted. “You are excused from this conversation.” -- The Hill
Annie Lowrey at The Atlantic
Wildfires and lack of affordable housing—these are two of the most visible and urgent crises facing California, raising the question of whether the country’s dreamiest, most optimistic state is fast becoming unlivable. -- California Is Becoming Unlivable
