Fox News outrageousness never takes a holiday and we’ve got the proof. Last week’s worst of the worst included insinuations that Chelsea Clinton timed her pregnancy to help her mother’s presidential campaign, an outrageous “Dear Santa” lower-third and, of course, a salvo in the War On Christmas. Which was the most outrageous? We report and YOU decide.
The nominees are:
Eric Bolling reacting to the news of Chelsea Clinton’s pregnancy:
“Was that timed? Was that timed out? Did they do the math? …“They’re good at timing on the left”
Andrea Tantaros defending Donald Trump’s crude remarks about Hillary Clinton getting “schlonged” and using the restroom.
"The left has culturally tried to feminize this country in a way that is disgusting. And you see blue collar voters — men — this is like their last vestige, their last hope is Donald Trump to get their masculinity back."
Meghan McCain, just thrilled with a restaurant that posted a sign saying, "This store is politically incorrect, we say Merry Christmas, God bless America, we salute our flag, give thanks to our troops, police officers, and firefighters. If this offends you, you are welcome to leave. In God we trust."
"I want more of this everywhere, I just want to write this restaurant a check and their owners and then I want them to open up a bunch of chains in New York City. I’m so sick of politically correct BS everywhere, especially during the holidays."
Fox Business Network lower third:
"DEAR SANTA: BRING GUNS"
"Legal analyst" Peter Johnson, Jr., commenting on a Washington Post cartoon in which two monkeys represented Ted Cruz' daughters:
"I hate to be judgmental, especially in this Christmas season, butI really do think it’s a form of child abuse."
Pastor Robert Jeffress arguing that denying entry to Syrian refugees is the Christian thing to do.
"Most people assume the Christian response is to allow immigrants and refugees unconditional entrance into our country. And I think they think that because they confuse Jesus with the Statue of Liberty - "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses." But in fact the real, historical Jesus did urge compassion for those in need, but he also said, “Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s.”
In other words, support government with your taxes because they have a legitimate function, like protecting citizens. And those of us who believe in the sanctity of life believe that sanctity serves to not only to protect the unborn but to protect the born from terrorist attacks. That’s a Christian value as well."

I’ll have to go with the reverend for using Jesus as a political tool to breed right-wing bigotry.
Off topic: has anybody heard anything about the current wave of tornado strikes and flooding being a smiting by the Creator? Thought so. Wouldn’t surprise me one bit to learn that those states are governed by GOP currently in favour.
And WE the oldest democracy in the world can’t get a handle on the smite-worthy.
Or maybe I’m just sick of the mess that their supposed lord has allowed to breed on his watch.
If there was a god, he’d likely be busily smiting these assholes.
