Wednesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Joe Biden, Karine Jean-Pierre, Antony Blinken, Dennis Prager, and more.

The BIG Lies

“We gotta be steady, stay the course, and continue to produce these incredible job[s]. And by the way, the pay for the jobs are outpacing the inflation rate.” —Joe Biden

“Inflation has gone slightly up — it was at 9% when I came in.” —Joe Biden

“The point here is we’re lowering costs.” —Joe Biden

Baghdad Bob

“A lot of the policies that the president is pushing forward are incredibly popular. They are.” —White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre


“My name’s Joe Biden. I work for Kamala Harris. I asked her to be my vice president because I knew I needed somebody smarter than me.” —Joe Biden

Useful Idiot

“A lot of armed Hamas will be left, no matter what [the Israelis] do in Rafah, or if they leave and get out of Gaza, as we believe they need to do.” —Secretary of State Antony Blinken

Belly Laugh of the Day

“No one has done more to defend Israel when it mattered than President Biden.” —Secretary Antony Blinken

For the Record

“According to the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics, in 1948, there were 1,380,000 Palestinians in Israel and the greater Palestine area, and as of 2022, there were 7 million. In other words, there are now five times as many Palestinians in the Palestinian territories and in Israel as there were in 1948. … People targeted for genocide do not increase their numbers — let alone by a factor of five.” —Dennis Prager

Political Futures

“The fact that [Marjorie Taylor] Greene’s motion [to oust Speaker Mike Johnson] was backed by the most radical Democrats in the House should be a huge signal to all conservatives. The chamber’s democratic socialists almost all lined up to topple Johnson. Fire-alarm aficionado Jamaal Bowman (D., N.Y.) was on Team Greene, as was Miss Green New Deal herself, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.). Pro-Hamas representative Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) voted with Greene, along with Cori Bush (D., Mo.), Summer Lee (D., Pa.), and Maxine Waters (D., Calif.).” —Henry Olson

“Perhaps Biden hasn’t checked the polls recently. The things he’s attacking Trump for are the things the American people want.” —Victor Joecks
