"Please play it again, baby. Play it again in a loop."

- CNN commentator Ana Navarro eating popcorn while reacting on CNN Tonight With Don Lemon to U.S. President Donald Trump's meeting with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi in the Oval Office.

"This was my home, my safe place and where I was able to (make) my dreams come true. The ski hill lives but coming home this time won't be the same without the same smelly lodge."
