Friday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Gina Raimondo, Keith Olbermann, Nate Jackson, and more.

Hot Air

“The devastating damage caused by Hurricane Idalia along the coast is a heartbreaking reminder of the human toll of the climate crisis.” —Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA)

“There’s still some deniers out there in terms of whether or not climate change had anything to do with any of this and we’re gonna need a whole hell of a lot more money.” —Joe Biden

“Florida Governor Ron DeSantis rejected $350 million in federal funds meant to help tackle climate change — just months before Hurricane Idalia flooded his state.” —The New Republic (“Was the hurricane going to ask for the money in return to not hit Florida?” —Stephen L. Miller)

“We don’t have shared values, but we have a shared planet and we have to work with the Chinese to save the planet.” —Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)

We’re Shocked — Shocked!

“We have no interest to hold China down, to hold China back.” —Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo

The BIG Lie

“The president has done more to secure the border, to deal with this issue of immigration, than anybody else — he really has.” —White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre

Village Idiot

“Can you just address the reality and move past it? You sucked at swimming. That’s why you lost.” —former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann to Riley Gaines (“Your statement should be directed toward a dude named Lia Thomas. He sucks at swimming against biological males so much so that he decided to identify as female just so he could win. How sexist and sad.” —Kimberly Ross)

“Good thing this pathetic hatemonger [Riley Gaines] had transphobia as an excuse for how much she sucked.” —Keith Olbermann

“Happily for nasty, stupid, unsuccessful transphobe [Riley Gaines] she has no reputation to ruin.” —Keith Olbermann


“Black people are responsible for 60% of all murders in the U.S., and the majority of their victims are other blacks. Those are the many, many black lives that absolutely do not matter to the media. Nor to Democrats.” —Ann Coulter

“We can’t help everyone, and if we’re going to try, we should do it the right way. Though, the right way is not always the compassionate way. Unfortunately for Democrats, they are now discovering that their approach of compassion through open borders and free services may be less humane than the alternative.” —Armstrong Williams

“If there are no consequences for those who corrupt our institutions with deceit, then there will be consequences for our country and our society. And they will not be pleasant.” —Laura Hollis

“If Dementia Joe’s gotta go, then so does Silent Mitch.” —Nate Jackson
