The Outrageous Fox Quote of the Week poll is back and with quotes as outrageous as ever. The subjects range from the vice presidential debate, to Hurricane Matthew, the raunchy Trump tape and more. Which quote was the most outrageous? That’s for you, our readers to decide. Put on your thinking caps and check ‘em out!
This week’s nominees are:
Jesse Watters to a salesman, during a visit to Chinatown, ostensibly to discover what residents are thinking about the 2016 presidential election:
“I like these watches. Are they hot?”
Sheriff David Clarke discussing the vice presidential debate between Democrat Tim Kaine and Republican Mike Pence:
“Kaine said that he criticized Donald Trump for saying African Americans live in hell. I said that before Donald Trump did. I said the American ghetto is a hellhole.
[…] Community policing will not work where you have an entrenched underclass that is culturally dysfunctional. Because it’s a two-way street and you can’t just have a one-sided effort by the police.”
Shepard Smith, discussing Hurricane Matthew:
“This moves 20 miles to the west, and you and everyone you know are dead — all of you — because you can’t survive it. It’s not possible unless you’re very, very lucky. And your kids die, too.”
Tucker Carlson, attacking Tim Kaine for referring to himself as Hillary Clinton’s “right hand person” and suggesting that’s why Clinton is not so popular with men.
“Why do men have to neuter themselves to fit with progressive orthodoxy? I mean Tim Kaine is a man, why is it embarrassing to say that. He didn’t choose to be a man, he was born that way, that’s the biological reality that the rest of us are busily denying, but it doesn’t make it any less true. Why should he have to pretend otherwise? You’re wondering why men aren’t voting for Hillary, why they’re not. Maybe this is why.”
Scott Baio, defending Trump’s “Grab them by the p***y” tape:
“Ladies out there, this is what guys talk about when you’re not around. So if you’re offended by it, grow up, OK? And by the way, this is what you guys talk about over white wine when you have your brunches.
So take it easy with your faux outrage. This is the way the world works. It’s not a big thing.”
Cast your vote below. My apologies for not getting to the poll last week. I hope you’ll enjoy this one!
Can’t for the life of me understand why Shep trying to get people to take Mathew more seriously could somehow be considered excessive. Katrina had been seriously under-estimated and he “lost it” while he was reporting from New Orleans.
While Mathew was on its way, the meteo reports all agreed that the storm had the potential to become really bad were it to wobble just a tad towards the west. We’re lucky it didn’t but that does not mean that it might not have. Had it done so, we’d be complaining that the storm had been underestimated. Hindsight is the most accurate of predictions, right?. The mix of events (heavy rain, swollen rivers, rising tides and strong wind towards the shore) was the same mix that caused a far weaker storm, Sandy, to produce a monstrous surge I shudder to think what Mathew might have done had it not stayed those mere 10-20 miles off shore.
