Last week was not only full of outrageous quotes on Fox News but full of outrageous quotes that looked a lot like they were either inciting or condoning violence. Check them out and cast your vote for the worst of the worst.
And the nominees are...
Wayne Allyn Root, discussing Trump rallies:
“We’re actually punching back and that’s a good thing. …I’m proud that Donald Trump is hitting back.”
Jesse Watters, “joking” on primary night about Donald Trump:
“Next time he should probably punch the protester in the face. His numbers will go way up.”
Donald Trump, reacting to Bill O’Reilly’s suggestion that he should be more restrained in his rhetoric:
“I think I have been restrained, Bill.”
Kimberly Guilfoyle, commenting on discrimination against the Irish:
“And the Irish got over it. They don’t run around going, ‘Irish Lives Matter.’”
Ben Stein, discussing Donald Trump:
“I have not heard a racist word out of that man’s mouth. He wants a peaceful, calm America.”
Newt Gingrich discussing protesters at Donald Trump events:
“Maybe a lot of these people ought to spend the entire summer in jail and then they won’t bother anybody. And I think that when people start being disruptive, they need to be arrested, they need to be prosecuted and they need to serve some time.”
Sheriff David Clarke urging Trump supporters to “stand up” to protesters:
“I’m not encouraging them to start the fight but I’m one of those that comes from the school of if a fight is inevitable, hit first and hit hard.”
The winner of our last poll was Donald Trump boasting about the size of us “hands” at the Fox News debate. That one was a bit of a no brainer. But I doubt this one will be. Let the judging begin!
PS: I apologize for not getting to the poll last week but there was just too much that I needed to blog about and not enough time for the poll.
