Tuesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Joe Biden, Joe Scarborough, Rob Reiner, and more.

Non Compos Mentis

“Ban the number of bullets that can go in a magazine. There’s no, no need for any of that. I love my right-wing friends who talk about ‘the tree of Liberty is watered with the blood of patriots.’ If you need to work [sic] about taking on the federal government, you need some F-15s. You don’t need an AR-15. I’m serious. Think about it.” —Joe Biden

“We have to retrain cops. Why should you always shoot with deadly force? The fact is if you need to use your weapon, you don’t have to do that.” —Joe Biden

The BIG Lies

“The federal deficit’s down one trillion-plus dollars. … These guys [Republicans] … they’re fiscally demented, I think.” —Joe Biden

“We used to go to 7:30 mass every morning, in high school and going into college, before I went to the black church. Not a joke.” —Joe Biden

“I started off as a 22-year-old kid … in the civil rights movement.” —Joe Biden

Race Bait

“If you live in one of those neighborhoods and you have the same exact car I have in the other neighborhood, you pay more for your insurance than that side. No basis for it. None at all other than you’re black and I’m white.” —Joe Biden

Circling the Wagons

“Transparency I think works best for the Biden administration, and works best for Biden himself, because they find the [classified] documents, they report it immediately. A far different situation than Donald Trump’s. Anybody who says it’s not is a political hack.” —MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough

“Certainly documents leave the vice president’s office and have to be stored somewhere.” —Congressman Dan Goldman

Village Idiot

“The sooner the DOJ can clear President Biden of any criminal wrongdoing, the sooner they can focus on saving the Rule of Law and our Democracy by Indicting Trump. We’re way past that time.” —filmmaker Rob Reiner

And Last…

“Biden finished 2022 and spent the first week of 2023 on offense. Now he’s on defense once more. He doesn’t like the feeling. But he better get used to it.” —Matthew Continetti
