Tuesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Jen Psaki, John Kerry, KJP, J.B. Pritzker, and more.


“No one is rooting for late-term abortions. No one is running on the platform of aborting viable babies. No one is selling late-term abortions… No one. Not Joe Biden, not Kamala Harris, not Hillary Clinton, not Nancy Pelosi, or any other politician demonized by the right-wing roots for more late-term abortions. None of them do.” —former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki

Hot Air

“Agriculture contributes about 33% of all the emissions of the world. … And we can’t get to net zero — we don’t get this job done — unless agriculture is front and center as part of the solution.” —climate czar John Kerry

The BIG Lies

“You’re gonna hear from this president this week about how he’s gonna continue to lower costs, right? Lower healthcare costs for Americans — something that the president, you know, has been leading on.” —White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre

“Thanks to [Biden’s] swift actions and historic investment, every school in America is open safely for in-person instruction.” —Karine Jean-Pierre (“FACT: 19 of the top 20 states for getting kids back to in-person instruction were led by Republicans.” —RNC)

“Because the president put schools reopening and businesses reopening … a priority, we were able to open up the schools.” —Karine Jean-Pierre

“I never thought that I’d be president, let alone be president and having a discussion on why books are being banned in American schools.” —Joe Biden

“I was able to — literally, not figuratively — talk Strom Thurmond into voting for the Civil Rights Act before he died.” —Joe Biden

Virtue Signals

“Because of the major laws and executive orders I’ve signed … we’re advancing equity in everything we do making unprecedented investments in all of America, including for Black Americans.” —Joe Biden

“Everything we’ve done is focused on equity in this administration.” —Biden senior advisor Steve Benjamin

“We are on the front line against a rising tide of a lot of -isms.” —Steve Benjamin

Theater of the Absurd

“If you watch him, if you’ve seen what he’s done the last two years, this is a president [that] has had a historic administration in just two years.” —Karine Jean-Pierre

“Here’s one thing everybody knows: [Biden] is a man who brings empathy to everything that he does.” —Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker

“We’ve just come out of a terrible global pandemic and the economic consequences of that. It was Joe Biden that led us out of that. And it’s true that when people are hurting, and then things start improving, it takes awhile for people to start to recognize, you know, the reality of the economy doing much, much better.” —J.B. Pritzker

“While [Republicans] talk about age, we will talk about the things that Americans are talking about, and that’s kitchen table issues.” —Biden campaign co-chair Cedric Richmond

Belly Laugh of the Day

“The president has said from the beginning that he wanted an independent Justice Department, and we have just that.” —Cedric Richmond

For the Record

“The Obama appointed judge who used to work at the same law firm as Hunter Biden just set the trial date for the Biden DOJ appointed special counsel, whose wife donated to Joe in 2020, to the day before Super Tuesday. Just a coincidence!” —Michael Seifert
