The past week, President Joe Biden has had to contend with crises both at home and abroad. At home, the Colonial Pipeline was crippled by a ransomware attack, crippling gasoline supply on the East Coast. Abroad, he has had to respond to an escalation in violence between Israel and Hamas, walking the always delicate tightrope of the Middle East. He delivered good news toward the end of the week, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stating vaccinated people no longer need to wear masks. And his Republican rivals, meanwhile, finally dispatched of Trump foe Liz Cheney from a leadership position. Here are the quotes of the week.

“It's a great milestone, a great day.”— Biden on the CDC guidance stating vaccinated people no longer need to wear masks

"It's not an enforcement thing. We're not going to go out and arrest people."— Biden to a reporter when asked how his administration would react to unvaccinated people also ditching their masks

"One of the things that I have seen thus far is that there has not been a significant overreaction.”— Biden on the clashes between Israeli forces and Hamas, defending the Netanyahu government

“My expectation and hope is that this will be closing down sooner than later. But Israel has a right to defend itself when you have thousands of rockets flying into your territory.”— Biden said Wednesday on Israel, prompting anger from the left wing of his party.
