Not sure if this fits criteria of what type of quotes you're looking for, but for consideration:

"I have an ample supply of underwear" -- also "Last week I bought my second pair of underwear" -- BERNIE SANDERS
(e.g. see:  http://www.cbsnews.com/news/bernie-sanders-ample-underwear-supply/ )

Subject: [PW] Most Notable Quotations of 2015 So Far?

I'm starting to think about my annual list, run by the Associated Press, of the top 10 most notable quotations of the year.  By "notable" I mean "important" or "famous" or "particularly revealing of the spirit of our times" rather than necessarily being eloquent or admirable.  

I would welcome suggestions of notable quotations from 2015, particularly ones from politics or popular culture or entertainment or sports or business or technology.  

Here are some of the contenders that I am already aware of:

blood coming out of her eyes; blood coming out of her -- wherever Donald Trump

Donald Trump

a lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight, and when they come out, they're gay.  So, did something happen while they were in there?
Ben Carson

Clinton sparred with Fox News reporter Ed Henry, who asked her whether she "wiped" her server.
"What - like with a cloth or something?" Clinton joked

Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, right?  But we put together a Benghazi special committee, a select committee.  What are her numbers today?
