Worst Quotes of the Week – June 26, 2021

“You know after they said penetration in the end zone they lost me.”

Joy Behar, regarding Carl Nassib becoming the first openly gay active player in the NFL, on “The View”

In all fairness, Behar has apologized for her comment.

“If he’s gonna tie them together, he can forget it!  I’m not doing that.  That’s extortion!  I’m not going to do that.  The Dems are being told you can’t get your bipartisan work product passed unless you sign on to what the left wants, and I’m not playing that game.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham, on President Biden’s multi-trillion-dollar infrastructure plan

“President Donald Trump is also one of a kind.  He too disrupted the status quo, he challenged the establishment… and now, as then, there is no going back.”

Former Vice-President Mike Pence, comparing Donald Trump Ronald Reagan

Pence went on to say, “Under President Trump’s leadership we were able to achieve things Republicans have been talking about since the days of Barry Goldwater.  It’s true.”

For the record, Goldwater lost the 1964 U.S. presidential election to Lyndon B. Johnson in the largest landslide in U.S. election history.

Best Quotes of the Week – May 15, 2021

“I’m not a politician.  I’m not an elected official.  I don’t expect anybody to give two shits about my opinions.  But I will say this, you know, those are lies.”

Michael Fanone, Capital Hill police officer who was stun-gunned several times and beaten with a flagpole during the attack, about the January 6 riots and denials by some Republicans on the severity of the event

Fanone, who said he suffered a concussion and a heart attack during the violence, added, “Peddling that bullshit is an assault on every officer that fought to defend the Capitol.  It’s disgraceful.”

“Right now it’s basically the Titanic.  We’re … in the middle of this slow sink.  We have a band playing on the deck telling everybody it’s fine.  And, meanwhile, Donald Trump’s running around trying to find women’s clothing and get on the first lifeboat.”

Rep. Adam Kinzinger, criticizing his fellow Republicans for their ongoing allegiance to former Pres. Trump

“We are up currently against the ticking time bomb of an unrelenting climate crisis and an economic crisis wearing down working people.  Each day the process of passing an infrastructure package is delayed by performative negotiations with the GOP – who are clearly disinterested in working with Democrats – another day goes by that we are not healing our planet or getting people good jobs to support their families.”

Ellen Sciales, press secretary for Sunrise Movement, on the apparent unwillingness of Republicans to work with President Biden on his infrastructure bill proposal

Saddest Quote of the Week – February 27, 2021

“Today we mark a truly grim, heartbreaking milestone: 500,071 dead.  That’s more Americans who have died in one year in this pandemic than in World War I, World War II, and the Vietnam War combined.  That’s more lives lost to this virus than any other nation on Earth.  But as we acknowledge the scale of this mass death in America we remember each person and the life they lived.  They’re people we knew.  They’re people we feel like we knew.  Read the obituaries and the remembrances.  The son who called his mom every night just to check in, the father’s daughter who lit up his world, the friend who was always there, the nurse who made her patients want to live.”

President Joe Biden, on the COVID-19 death toll reaching the half million mark in the United States

Best Quotes of the Week – January 30, 2021

“We see with our own eyes. We know it in our bones. It is time to act.”

President Joe Biden, upon signing executive orders to make the U.S. energy-independent and stop the use of fossil fuels to combat climate change

“I am happy to work with Republicans on this issue where there’s common ground, but you almost had me murdered 3 weeks ago, so you can sit this one out.  Happy to work with almost any other GOP that aren’t trying to get me killed.  In the meantime if you want to help, you can resign.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, criticizing Sen. Ted Cruz over the January 6 Capitol Hill riots
