This week in Fox News outrageousness includes “insights” into Donald Trump hosting Saturday Night Live, President Obama’s rejection of the Keystone Pipeline, Ben Carson’s lie about being “offered a full scholarship to West Point” and more.
This week’s nominees are:
Katie Pavlich, on protests over Donald Trump hosting Saturday Night Live:
If these protesters spent just as much time protesting the illegal alien rapists and murderers who make their own communities look bad, maybe Trump wouldn’t be saying the things that he is about their communities. So I suggest that if they don’t want that stereotype, if they don’t want the truth to be told about the fact that illegal immigration does bring with it a huge criminal element that we have to deal with in this country, they should spend their energy getting out the criminals in their own communities and then we can have a discussion about the people who remain here who haven’t committed those heinous crimes.
Bernard McGuirk discussing Trump hosting Saturday Night Live:
I think this is a tacit admission by NBC that Trump did not make racist comments. He stated some facts so these people should cállate their bocas (Spanish for “shut their mouths,” which drew loud giggles from the cohosts) and we have something here called the First Amendment …He was indelicate in the way he articulated some of these things but let the man go out there and do his thing and, you know, dummy up.
Jesse Watters, as part of what he called the “legitimate questions” he asked students while "investigating" liberal bias at Cornell University.
Have the professors ever told you to make love, not war?
Ben Stein, attacking President Obama’s rejection of the Keystone Pipeline.
He doesn’t have any sincere beliefs about anything except pleasing yelling, screaming environmentalists. …We don’t even know what causes climate change, even if there is climate change.
Greg Gutfeld, discussing Ben Carson’s lie about being “offered a full scholarship to West Point.”
I think a lie is often a coat of paint you put on a story that you’re bored with. It’s not necessarily for other people. It’s for yourself because you keep adding things. It’s like renovating an apartment. You just keep adding more – it is like putting a fresh coat of paint on a story. It’s not like a deliberate destructive lie, like Hillary Clinton, on Benghazi.
This last one is not the usual kind of entry but it was certainly part of an outrageous argument between George Will and Bill O’Reilly over O’Reilly’s latest book:
WILL: You’re something of an expert on misleading.
O’REILLY: You’re a hack!
Cast your vote below. We'll reveal the winner next week.
I’m just gonna go with the guy that I REALLY have never been able to tolerate: Ben Stein.
I realise that the probabilities are infinitesimally small but a recent video of a metorite in the Far East (Thailand?) made me wonder. Maybe the ground searchers should be on the lookout for a sort of rock that shouldn’t be there.
