Fox News talking heads didn't save all their outrageousness for the feud with Donald Trump last week. They saved some for Bill Clinton, Jeb Bush's son and an allegedly praying two-year-old. Check out this week's choices and cast your vote!
“Look at African-American people in their prime - 30s and 40s and 50s, look at their unemployment rate. They want jobs. They are going to like me better than they like Obama. The truth is Obama has done nothing for them.”
Geraldo Rivera, suggesting that Fox News and Donald Trump are part of the same GOP family while lamenting Trump's decision to drop out of the Fox News debate.
“This is an awful development. I wish it never happened. This is like a bar fight between brothers.”
Bill O’Reilly begging Donald Trump to reconsider dropping out of the Fox News debate:
“Would you do me a favor? …Because I bought you so many vanilla milkshakes—I bought you so many vanilla milkshakes you owe me.
…Will you just consider? I want you to consider, alright? Think about it. Say, 'Look, I might come back.' Forgive, go forward, answer the questions, look out for the folks. Just want you to consider it. You owe me milkshakes. I’ll take them off the ledger, if you consider it."
Steve Doocy, promoting the video of a two-year-old allegedly praying:
"You're never too young to count your blessing, just listen to this two-year-old."
Andrea Tantaros, tweeting a sarcastic smear of Jeb Bush’s son who, as it turns out, is a lieutenant in the Navy Reserve and spent eight months serving in Afghanistan under a fake name.
"Curious, will your son George P. be joining the fight embedded in Iraq, Jeb? Oh wait, that's right, he's also planning to run for President."
“Objective” business anchor Melissa Francis doing double duty as an opinion host discussing the possibility of Bill Clinton becoming the First Dude.
“Do we want him running around in the White House again? That gives you an icky feel.”
Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson:
“You see a guy like Barack Obama – I hate no man and I don’t dislike anyone that I know of – but I’m just looking at the facts. He didn’t swear that oath to protect and defend the Constitution. He studied the Constitution before he was finally elected president to circumvent it. That’s why he studied it. He didn’t study it to protect and uphold it.”

Whatever happened to Ed from Ned?
Bill subsequently explained the milkshake quip. Both him and Trump apparently attend games together but neither drink alcohol so they tend to drink milkshakes.
Bill was trying to be funny again which typically is a train wreck. 😉
It’s gotta be the *uck Dynasty quote. Holier than thou Phil Robertson bearing false witness on camera is always comedy gold.
How’s Truman? (I am one of the last persons known here to be in touch with Ed from Ned. :(
For the 2nd week in a row I can’t get particularly stirred up by most of the quotes. I would ask Melissa Francis if she’d have the same icky feeling if Trump was in the White House. You know, the guy who fanaticizes of having sex with his daughter. 👍
