We've got ten outrageous quotes for you to judge this week, dear readers. Our topics include Benghazi, torture, the Washington Redskins, Hillary Clinton and more. For some reason, the subject of brain damage turned up twice. Get your voting fingers ready!
And the nominees are:
Brian Kilmeade, mocking those protesting the name of the Washington Redskins: “What about the NY Giants, that could be insulting to tall people. Should we change that?”
Kimberly Guilfoyle, stating that a Connecticut high school is guilty of filtering out conservative websites. “There was no denial that this was happening.”
Harris Faulkner, commenting on the allegation of the school’s website bias: “It seems like this happens more with conservatives than liberals.”
Kennedy, asserting that "redskins" isn’t analogous to the n-word: It “minimizes what it means to use the n-word which can be one of the most offensive words in the English language and I think making these two things synonymous actually lessens that.”
Pete Hegseth, baselessly arguing that Benghazi suspect Ahmed Abu Khattala won’t be effectively prosecuted if he’s not tortured:
"Presumably because of what this administration stated, they’re not using enhanced interrogation techniques and this guy, from his frappé interview in the New York Times, seems to be more than happy to chat. …If he’s smart he’s probably clamming up right there too, because now we’ve told everybody that we won’t use difficult techniques if we need to, to extract information. …And he’s going to the U.S. where he’ll be (given) Miranda rights in New York City and given a high profile lawyer to defend him."
Karl Rove, again suggesting Hillary Clinton suffered brain damage – and blaming Bill Clinton for making it an issue:
"Now, if she’s got a problem with it, go argue with her husband! Because he told us something that we didn’t know. Her State Department PR apparatus said, 'Oh, no, no, no. No problem. She’s over this in 30 days.' … And then she showed up with these fractal glasses that you have to have to wear if you’ve got vision problems as the result of a traumatic concussion.
… I repeat, it was her husband, the former president, who went out and said, “Oh, you didn’t know how serious this was. It took Hillary six months of really hard work to overcome it. And I’m proud of her.”
That’s something that we, the American people, didn’t know."
Benghazi “expert” Terry Bradshaw, offering his special insight into the matter:
"When the lady came out and said that the – triggered all of this, what was it? The music, what was it? (One of the co-hosts reminded him of the anti-Muslim video.) Right, the video. Did anybody buy that? Did anybody truly? I sat there and just went, 'Someone told her to go out there and say this and stay with it.' Was it the president?"
Megyn Kelly “just asking” Dick Cheney and Liz Cheney, “Do you think that President Obama is dangerous?”
Glenn Beck, suggesting Harry Reid is brain damaged for advocating the Washington Redskins change its name: “I feel sorry for Harry Reid and I mean this sincerely. Harry is, I’m sure, a nice guy… but I really think that there’s something wrong with him. I think he slipped or something. I don’t understand it.”
Mike Huckabee: “The IRS is the closest thing the US has to a Gestapo."
1 shockingly bad or excessive: an outrageous act of bribery.
• wildly exaggerated or improbable: the outrageous claims made by the previous administration.
2 very bold, unusual, and startling: her outrageous leotards and sexy routines.
Does Fox News(?) get a special tax-exemption for hiring these “special” people???
I will vote for Hegseth. Some say that he’s never met any Muslim he didn’t want to torture.
