Monday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Alejandro Mayorkas, Andrew Weissmann, Jill Biden, Armstrong Williams, and more.

The BIG Lies

“Our personnel have done an extraordinary job in implementing a very big shift in how we operate on the southern border.” —DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas

“The Supreme Court is [sic] never been as out of kilter as it is today. I mean, never.” —Joe Biden

“I think there’s a crisis on the Court. … This Court is becoming brazenly corrupt and brazenly political.” —Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT)

Dumb & Dumber

“I’m extremely proud of my son Hunter. … He’s one of the brightest, most decent men I know.” —Joe Biden

“You have a president of the United States who is [the] living embodiment of the rule of law.” —MSNBC’s Andrew Weissmann

“Joe isn’t one of the most effective presidents of our lives in spite of his age but because of it.” —Jill Biden

Who Wants to Tell Them?

“I, JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR., President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim June 15, 2024, as World Elder Abuse Awareness Day.” —A Proclamation on World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, 2024

For the Record

“The clips of Biden aimlessly wandering off are bad. But make no mistake: behind the scenes, Biden’s performance is much, much worse.” —Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR)


“I think [addiction] is a very serious thing. … It’s a very tough situation for a father. It’s a very tough situation for a brother or sister … whether it’s alcohol or drugs or whatever it may be.” —Donald Trump with some compassion for Hunter Biden (“Of course, no other addicts collect millions of dollars in graft from foreign governments and set aside cuts for the ‘Big Guy.’” —Mark Alexander)

Political Futures

“How is it that having an uncle cannibalized would reflect favorably on you? What gears must turn in the political mind to trick oneself into believing this? Has anyone ever looked at a candidate and thought, ‘I like where he stands on taxes, but I’m concerned that no one in his family was turned into a plate of ribs’?” —Christian Schneider

“It is easy to rally the people against what they all hate: corrupt, lawless dictatorships. It takes a superhuman effort to unify people behind a new allocation of power in which the rule of law is king and the king is not law. People who gravitate to politics are characteristically sociopaths with insatiable cravings for absolute power. They abhor separation of powers, which arrests dictatorial ambitions.” —Armstrong Williams

And Last…

“Israel is the only nation on earth that is tasked with protecting its own people and its enemies. Every innocent lost life is, of course, a tragedy. But if you don’t want to be placed in harm’s way, don’t hold hostages in your homes and neighborhoods, and don’t cheer and support a government that puts your life in constant danger for a lost cause.” —David Harsanyi
