Our Outrageous Fox Quote of the Week poll has returned. It took a hiatus the day of the tragic police shootings in Baton Rouge and was kept there during the conventions. But Fox outrageousness never takes a break. Check out last week’s selections to vote for this week.
The nominees are:
Reince Priebus over-reacting to the Wikileaks revelations in the DNC hacked emails:
“The fact is, is that the DNC colluded and perpetrated a fraud upon their own grassroots and their supporters and delegates, but they perpetrated a fraud against the American people, and now you have Hillary Clinton and she’s illegitimate as the presumptive nominee of their party, and they’re going to have to contend with that now this week, and it’s a tough job, especially now they don’t have, well they do have a chairwoman, but they really don’t have anyone seemingly in control of this convention.”
Bill O’Reilly, commenting on Michelle Obama’s remarks about living in a house built by slaves:
"Slaves that worked there were well-fed and had decent lodgings provided by the government, which stopped hiring slave labor in 1802. However, the feds did not forbid subcontractors from using slave labor. So, Michelle Obama is essentially correct in citing slaves as builders of the White House, but there were others working as well.”
Bill O’Reilly, playing the victim after being mocked and criticized for his slavery comments:
“This is designed though—this is designed, Geraldo, and you know this better than anybody, this is a designed attack, came out of Media Matters, spread to Mother Jones and the other smear publications, and then into the Daily News and USA Today, designed to diminish me and to harm the Fox News channel. That’s what it’s designed to do.
They want me dead, Bolling, literally dead.”
“Political expert” Scott Baio, with suggested questions for Chelsea Clinton:
“They’re going after Donald Trump. I’m wondering if anybody backstage or on stage actually went up to Chelsea Clinton and said, ‘Hey, how do you feel, being a young woman, how do you feel that your dad was accused of rape and how do you feel that he had many, many, many affairs behind your mother’s back?’”
Trump campaign advisor Al Baldasaro doubling down on his call for Hillary Clinton to be shot:
“I stand by what I said. I never said she should be assassinated. What I said be—she should go in front of the firing squad for treason. What that means to the slow people is that you gotta be found guilty.”

This precious gem will appear in books like ‘The Best of the Worst of Fox’ and history students (Early 21st Century 101) will look back upon it in wonder at how such idiocy could tie its own shoelaces.
If any quote ever deserved a solid 100%, this indeed was it.
