We could post him every week…Joe Biden

Same for the VP


“I will tell you this: The president is the best communicator that we have in the White House.”
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre

“Seven days after Biden boasted that inflation, food, and gas prices are falling and that take-home pay is rising, new numbers arrive showing that inflation, food, and energy prices are jumping back up again, and real take-home pay is falling. … As I mention more and more frequently, this administration has many bad habits, but one of the worst is its inclination to spike the football in victory at any glimpse of good news, only to be quickly overtaken by bad news.”
Jim Geraghty

“No other country on Earth is ridiculous enough to permit different racial groups to perform their own national anthems before major events.”
Matt Walsh

“The Chinese spy balloon incident appears to have quickly evolved from embarrassing national security failure to national farce. We let a sophisticated Chinese surveillance balloon fly the length of the United States and now, in reaction to that embarrassment, are practically scrambling the jets every time a little girl lets go of her helium balloon at a birthday party. … The failure here is ours and ours alone. How can the most sophisticated society in human history lack the capacity to track a primitive aviation technology dating back to the 18th century?”
Rich Lowry

“The whole world saw a slow-moving balloon transiting Montana, Kansas, South Carolina — and the United States of America did nothing. … I can’t imagine that the risk of some falling debris over a place like Montana exceeded the risk of global shame.”
Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo 

“The only thing that could have made it any worse is if Biden had allowed communist Chinese jets to escort the spy balloon!”
Gary Bauer

“To be fair, Biden is providing is powerful deterrence for any high school science clubs that might try to invade America….” Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX)

“Today, we begin to collectively heal from the horrific events which transpired, tomorrow we work. … F*** your thoughts and prayers.”
Michigan State Rep. Ranjeev Puri vis-à-vis the Michigan State shooting

“Extremist group Family Heritage Alliance said this morning that the safest place for kids are in families that have a married mom and dad. What a dangerous and un-American belief.”
Rep. Erin Healy (D-SD)

“How do you bring together a country where millions believe liberty comes from God and millions don’t even believe in a god? How do you bring together a country where millions believe in the sanctity of life and millions believe an innocent baby is nothing more than an appendix to be disposed of at whim? How do you bring together a country where millions believe in biological reality and more and more openly deny it? … Don’t bother asking candidates what their plan is to bring us together. The left isn’t interested in finding common ground. It means to crush us! The question should be, ‘What is your plan to stop the left’s fundamental transformation of America?’”
Gary Bauer

“The bipartisan commitment to not touch Social Security … is really a commitment to slash benefits by 23 percent in just over a decade. Under existing rules, the only way to ward off those cuts will be to sharply increase payroll taxes, which already consume 15.3 percent of every worker’s pay. As with all pyramid scams, the momentum of paying benefits to earlier investors can be sustained only by taking in more and more money from those who come afterward. But since the availability of new investors is never infinite, that momentum can’t be maintained.”
—Jeff Jacoby

“Nikki Haley isn’t in her prime. Sorry … a woman is considered to be in her prime in her 20s and 30s and maybe 40s. … Don’t shoot the messenger. I’m just saying what the facts are. Google it.”
CNN’s Don Lemon

CNN’s chairman, Chris Licht, opened his daily 9 a.m. editorial call by saying that the remarks by Mr. Lemon, which were widely viewed as sexist and insensitive, had left him “disappointed.”

“His remarks were upsetting, unacceptable and unfair to his co-hosts, and ultimately a huge distraction to the great work of this organization,” Mr. Licht told his staff, according to a recording of the call obtained by The New York Times…

On Friday’s call, a far more contrite-sounding Mr. Lemon addressed the matter in a six-minute monologue to the CNN newsroom.

“I am sorry,” Mr. Lemon said. “I did not mean to hurt anyone. I did not mean to offend anyone.”
NY Times

“I think it unnecessarily politicizes a game that traditionally has brought Americans together and it represents a capitulation of the NFL to the most radical elements in our society. It is divisive and it has no place in sports. And when you think about sports and football in particular, that has been an area for blacks where you had a meritocracy, that black players have been pretty successful. And this is something that will drive away supporters and it does nothing to unite our nation.”
Dr. Carol Swain on playing the so-called Black National Anthem at NFL games
