Thursday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Kamala Harris, Joe Biden, Byron York, and more.

The BIG Lie

“If you look at what we’ve been able to do from last summer to this summer — lowering gas prices by $1.20 — that is because of the work that this administration has done.” —White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre

Dumb & Dumber

“Our president has been an extraordinary leader who has accomplished things that previous presidents hoped and dreamed and promised they would do and did not achieve. … I see how his ability to understand issues and weave through complex issues in a way that no one else can to make smart and important decisions on behalf of the American people have played out.” —Kamala Harris

“Name me one major issue that we’ve set our mind on solving we haven’t been able to do.” —Joe Biden

Re: The Left

“The woke believe … race is first and foremost, the thing you should always see everywhere, which I find interesting because that used to be the position of the Ku Klux Klan.” —Bill Maher

“Democrats expect the media to make politics like bumper bowling for children. There can be no gutter balls. Every throw knocks down pins. Every Democrat gets a participation trophy.” —Tim Graham

“The same people who want to help kids change their gender want those kids to mask up in schools again. Because science, or something.” —Nate Jackson

Political Futures

“The prosecution machine will impose crippling costs on Trump’s daily life, on his campaign, on his bank account. It would not be surprising to see him spend everything he has raised for his campaign on his legal bills instead. And in the end, with four indictments and 91 felony counts so far, the machine will convict him of something, perhaps a lot of things. … Perhaps Trump will manage to maintain his dominance in the GOP even then. But it will be an ugly, protracted and unimaginably costly fight.” —Byron York
