On this Valentine's Day edition of our Outrageous Fox News Quote of the Week poll, I can't promise you'll find a quote you love, but I'll bet you find one that's outrageousness enough to vote for. Especially when our subjects include Beyoncé's Super Bowl performance, sex week at a Utah university, Donald Trump's running mate, a tasteless joke about Jimmy Carter and more.
This week's nominees are:
Rudy Giuliani, bashing Beyoncé’s Super Bowl performance:
“I think it was outrageous. The halftime show, I thought it was ridiculous anyway. I don’t know what the heck it was. A bunch of people, like, bouncing around and all strange things. It was terrible.
…This is football, not Hollywood, and I thought it was really outrageous that she used it as a platform to attack police officers who are the people who protect her and protect us, and keep us alive. And what we should be doing in the African-American community, and all communities, is build up respect for police officers. And focus on the fact that when something does go wrong, okay. We’ll work on that. But the vast majority of police officers risk their lives to keep us safe.”
Donald Trump, making Sean Hannity as a political adviser for picking a VP candidate.
“I would speak to lots of people about it, and lots of people that know me …including you, by the way.”
Neil Cavuto promoting colleague Scott Brown as Donald Trump’s running mate:
“When I saw you two together, I looked at this and said, ‘That could be the ticket right there!’“
Lenny Clarke, making a “joke” about cancer survivor Jimmy Carter:
“I know this. I know Jimmy Carter is staying alive ‘cause he thinks President Obama makes him look good.”
Crystal Wright, supposedly arguing that Republicans should reach out to African Americans:
“Blacks should no more vote for Hillary or Bernie than they should the grand wizard of the KKK, because they keep giving us all these bad policies. And last night, you know what they should have said, Brian? “Hey, black people, stop having 72% of your babies out of wedlock and your kids won’t be going, won’t be massly incarcerated and arrested.”
Gretchen Carlson, suggesting that only rich kids deserve free college tuition.
“Where [Bernie Sanders] said, you know, poor people should be able to go to college free, like rich kids. Free? …If that’s actually true, quite possibly their parents worked incredibly hard to be able to pay for them, the full ride to go to college!”
“Words like ‘reproductive justice’... are absolutely and utterly meaningless.”
