** Only Nixon could go to China [[labelnote:Explanation]] A historical reference to United States President Richard Nixon's 1972 visit to the People's Republic of China, where he met with Chairman Mao Zedong. Refers to the ability of a politician with an unassailable reputation among his or her supporters for representing and defending their values to take actions that would draw their criticism and even opposition if taken by someone without those credentials.

In this case, Nixon was known to be such a staunch anti-communist that while he could open relations with the People's Republic of China, any other politician who attempted to do so would have been seen as "soft on communism" or even possibly as a collaborator.[[/labelnote]]

** "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country." [[labelnote:Explanation]]Also from Kennedy's inaugural speech.[[/labelnote]]
** "We chose to X, and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]From Kennedy's 1962 speech at Rice University, explaining the motivation for engaging in the space race. The X here is "go to the moon in this decade". Often parodied when any character chooses to pursue a goal, regardless of how easy or hard that goal really is.[[/labelnote]]

** [[WorstNewsJudgmentEver Cheeseburger emojis]][[labelnote:Explanation]]While the rest of the media was reporting the issue minute by minute, it was noted that Creator/{{Fox News|Channel}} at first mentioned it very little, centering on other news. One of them in particular was singled out, as it was about a "controversy" about Google's cheeseburger emoji having the cheese below the patty. People critical of Fox News pointed at it as an example of bias, while others simply found it hilarious that such a thing ever got time on a news channel at all. Even anonymous sources ''[[StopBeingStereotypical at Fox]]'' [[http://www.money.cnn.com/2017/10/31/media/fox-news-employees-russia-mueller-coverage/index.html were frustrated with their channel's lack of coverage of the scandal]].[[/labelnote]]
