“[Arizona Democratic Sen. Kyrsten] Sinema seems not to care that her own state is flooding, the West is burning, and infrastructure around the country is crumbling. Sinema is more interested in gaining GOP friends and blocking much needed resources than fighting for her residents’ future. Time for the White House to play hardball. We didn’t elect Sinema as president and we won’t let her obstruction put a Republican in the Oval Office in 2024. It’s the reconciliation bill or GOP controlling every level of government again, period.”
“Folks [are] supposed to have common sense. But it’s time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks, not the regular folks. It’s the unvaccinated folks that are letting us down.”
–Kay Ivey, Republican governor of Alabama, where only a third of residents are vaccinated.
“For everyone saying that Republicans are now freaking out about Covid because it’s killing their base — they knew it was killing their base a year ago. They didn’t care. Something happened in the last week that scared the hell out of them. I want to know what.”
“Well, here’s the thing. And one of the CDC officials said yesterday, look the pandemic right now is really just with people who have not been vaccinated. 99% of the people who have died have not been vaccinated. So what they are trying to do is make sure that all of the people who have not been vaccinated get vaccinated.”
– Steve Doocy, a co-host of Fox News’ “Fox And Friends,” promoting Covid vaccination Monday morning in an apparent sudden reversal for the network.
“We got very lucky with Mike Pence. All they wanted Pence to do was to rebuff the electors coming in from Arizona, Georgia, and Pennsylvania, lowering Biden’s total below 270, kicking the presidential contest into a contingent election. And there they wanted it because we vote not one member, one vote, but one state, one vote. And at that point, he probably would’ve followed the advice of Michael Flynn and imposed martial law and a state of siege, and this would’ve been the Reichstag moment.”
– Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), a House prosecutor in the second Trump impeachment
“The idea of Trump staging a coup does give him too much credit. That requires advance thinking, planning, strategizing, building up support, and I just don’t think he’s capable of that.”
– Former national security advisor John Bolton.
“This is a Reichstag moment. The gospel of the Führer.”
– Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, to his aides in the days leading up to the January 6 attack on the US Capitol, according to the new book, “I Alone Can Fix It,” by Carol Leoning and Philip Rucker.
“We’re in uncharted territory. There are cases where elections were overturned, but there’s never been one at the presidential level, which everybody will jump to point out. That doesn’t mean that it can’t be done … It should be that [Trump] can simply be reinstated, that a new a new inauguration day is set. And Biden is told to move out of the White House and Pres. Trump should be moved back in.”
“I hope that at the end of the day this resolves quickly for Matt because I don’t want him to miss the prom.”
— Michael Cohen, talking about Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) on MSNBC.
“I don’t beat anybody up, it’s not really my style, except that jerk.”
