QUOTES OF THE WEEK

“Now [as] we look at 2022, I wanna tell my Republican friends: Get ready, pal! You’re gonna [be] in for a problem!”
Joe Biden

Letting the cat out of the bag? “We’re making progress. We’re going to keep at it to ensure the American people are paying their fair share for gas — not being gouged for gas.”
Joe Biden

“I think that’s ridiculous.”
Jill Biden, “Quite a few Americans have some questions about the president’s current mental fitness”

Inflation is a “bone-crushing, life-changing, hope-stealing, job-killing” force. “This is unprecedented — the last time inflation was this high I had an afro — that is a long time ago, that is early 1980s.”
Senator Tim Scott (R-SC)

 “There is an attitude of lawlessness in our country that springs from I don’t know where. Maybe you do.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi

“One of the most powerful and corrupt individuals in our entire government is worshipped by an entire political party to the point where they will blindly follow literally anything he says and if you doubt him, you’re somehow the crazy one. His name is Dr. Fauci.”
Caleb Hull

“The bottom line is that the way to avoid this virus is to get two shots and then get the booster shot. … It’s patriotic to get this done.”
Joe Biden

“[People] feel like government is not connecting with them. They’re sick of masks, being told what to do in terms of vaccines, probably not thrilled with what they sense is going on in Washington.”
New Jersey Democrat Governor Phil Murphy

“Okay so you’re NOT allowed to Tweet that vaccinated people get covid. But you’re also not allowed to attend a Chicago Bulls game because they’ve been canceled due to a covid outbreak amongst their FULLY VACCINATED team. What a [crazy] time to be alive.”
Jimmy Failla

“By lying about being attacked because of his race, Jussie Smollett has spit in the face of actual victims of bigotry. He needs to apologize to the American people and should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law to send a strong message to any potential future hoaxers.”
Tulsi Gabbard

“Why does Jen Psaki even continue to call on Fox in the briefing room? … If your network is … helping to inspire and incite an insurrection, why should they even be able to take part in a legitimate press briefing and legitimate journalism? … Why did they even allow Fox to pretend in the briefing room that they’re a real news organization?”
CNN’s Don Lemon

“China is unfit to host the 2022 Olympics. President Biden missed an opportunity to pressure the IOC to postpone the games and find a new host country. A diplomatic boycott won’t dissuade the Chinese Communist Party from continuing its human rights abuses, genocide against the Uyghurs, and coronavirus cover-up. Once again, Biden is leading from behind and making a face-saving effort rather than taking the bold action necessary to confront China.”
Heritage Foundation President Kevin Roberts

“I don’t mean to sound alarmist, I mean this: Women will die. I’m very concerned about it. Women will die. In particular, women who don’t have economic resources and can’t then travel to places or somehow have access to safe reproductive health care, including abortion.”
Kamala Harris

“Visited my local public library this past weekend for the first time in years. Very nice place, though I was surprised to find Orwell’s ‘1984’ misfiled under ‘fiction.’ Being a good citizen, I rectified the oversight.”
Pat Sajak
