Friday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Elizabeth Warren, AOC, Joe Biden, Boris Johnson, and more.

Hot Air

“The Supreme Court’s ruling in West Virginia vs. EPA is another devastating decision that aims to take our country backwards. … We cannot and will not ignore the danger to public health and existential threat the climate crisis poses. … Our fight against climate change must carry forward, and it will.” —President Joe Biden

“Our planet is on fire, and this extremist Supreme Court has destroyed the federal government’s ability to fight back. This radical Supreme Court is increasingly facing a legitimacy crisis, and we can’t let them have the last word.” —Senator Elizabeth Warren

“A filibuster carveout is not enough. We need to reform or do away with the whole thing [SCOTUS], for the sake of the planet.” —Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

“The Supreme Court rules 6-3 that the planet should burn.” —Rolling Stone

Theater of the Absurd

“I personally believe that Clarence Thomas should be impeached, beyond a shadow of a doubt. I am astonished that this is a position that is in any way controversial to anyone. The degree and extent of misconduct that Clarence Thomas alone in addition to several of his colleagues have participated and engaged in is foundationally delegitimizing to the Supreme Court. And it is our responsibility, our constitutional duty, to rein them in.” —AOC

“We need to be working on repealing the Hyde Amendment in Congress right now. … Repealing the Hyde Amendment will allow the federal government to invest in access to reproductive care in any place that has federal jurisdiction.” —AOC

The BIG Lies

“You haven’t found one person, one world leader to say [sic] America is going backwards. America is better positioned to lead the world than we ever have been. We have the strongest economy in the world. Our inflation rates are lower than other nations in the world. The one thing that has been destabilizing is the outrageous behavior of the Supreme Court of the United States on overruling not only Roe v. Wade but essentially challenging the right to privacy.” —Joe Biden

“I can understand why the American people are frustrated because of what the Supreme Court did. I can understand why the American people are frustrated because of inflation. But inflation is higher in almost every other country.” —Joe Biden

“Ultimately, the reason why gas prices are up is because of Russia. Russia, Russia, Russia. The reason why the food crisis exists is because of Russia.” —Joe Biden

Can’t Fix Stupid

“As long as it takes so Russia cannot, in fact, defeat Ukraine and move beyond Ukraine.” —Joe Biden when asked, "How long is it fair to expect American drivers and drivers around the world to pay [the oil and gas] premium for this war?“

Braying Jenny

"I don’t think that we’re going to see much more movement on [gun control], especially with the way the Supreme Court is going, right? Because now you have Clarence Thomas writing an opinion that says, you know, you can have your guns anywhere. You can have them not only in your home, you can have them outside. And I think we’re seeing such hypocrisy, quite frankly, from not only the Supreme Court, of course, but from Republicans. Because if you truly are pro-life, you cannot be pro-life and also be pro-death penalty and be pro-guns. There’s just no way that that is consistent.” —"The View" co-host Sunny Hostin

Non Compos Mentis Awards

“Ketanji Brown Jackson is sworn in as the first Black Supreme Court justice in U.S. history.” —ABC News’s “Good Morning America” (“I guess Clarence Thomas and Thurgood Marshall aren’t black enough for the woke white interns at Good Morning America.” —Sean Davis | “They probably meant to say ‘first black woman’ and then realized they never had a biologist confirm that.” —Frank Fleming)

“You need more women in positions of power. If Putin was a woman … I really don’t think he would have embarked on a crazy, macho war of invasion and violence in the way that he has. If you want a perfect example of toxic masculinity, it’s what he’s doing in Ukraine.” —British Prime Minister Boris Johnson (“Catherine the Great literally incorporated Crimea and most of Ukraine into the Russian Empire, you complete dolt.” —Ben Shapiro)

And Last…

“All the cultural leaders of the West have 3 things in common: 1. No love of country. (Often they hate it.) 2. No connection to how regular people live. 3. An ironclad belief they are of a higher class and should rule as kings and queens.” —Jesse Kelly
