Worst Quotes of the Week – June 5, 2021

“Are Peter Daszak and Tony Fauci under criminal investigation?  We can only hope they are. They certainly deserve it. At this point, we can’t say for sure. We do know that Fauci hasn’t simply lied about the origins of COVID, pretending to know things he could not know. He has also lied about vaccines in key ways.”

Tucker Carlson, in response to newly-released emails showing that Dr. Anthony Fauci had tried to work with Chinese health officials to learn the origins of the COVID-19 virus

Dr. Peter Daszak is a British zoologist who focuses on disease ecology.

“As I said that day, Jan. 6 was a dark day in the history of the United States Capitol.  You know, President Trump and I have spoken many times since we left office, and I don’t know if we’ll ever see eye to eye about that day. But I will always be proud of what we accomplished for the American people over the last four years.”

Former Vice-President Mike Pence, speaking at the Hillsborough County Lincoln-Reagan Dinner in New Hampshire

Pence went on to say, “I will not allow Democrats or their allies in the media to use one tragic day to discredit the aspirations of millions of Americans. Or allow Democrats or their allies in the media to distract our attention from a new administration intent on further dividing our country to advance their radical agenda.”

It’s important to note that the Capital Hill rioters were chanting to kill Pence, as they invaded the Capital on January 6.

  1. Why we are content to vote for blatant liars and con artists like Pence?

  2. See, a lot of people see this differently than I do. Pence, much like many involved with Trump, HAVE to continue to defend him. Otherwise, them backing down weakens the position of the Republican party to almost crippling them, and also it will invalidate everything that he did work to accomplish. By acknowledging that Trump literally tried to have him killed to keep the Presidency, he will be stating what is obvious only to those who weren’t drinking the Kool-Aide. The problem is, if they take away what little hard-core support Trump still possesses, all Republicans will turn away. They must hold on fast. They must continue to defend and argue in favor of that mad-man, because otherwise, everything they came to the table hoping for (and failed to get the temper-tantrum orange man to do), will suddenly mean nothing. They wanted A, failed to get A, and now turning on the man that promised A and they supported. That’s not a good look. So they have to hold on and keep going even though their souls are dying as the Devil grips them tighter and tighter because they’re hoping for a future for the Republican party – not for Trump, but for the party. And he is just insane enough that if he feels that he’s not getting the right type of support from the Republicans, he will unleash the loons that stormed the Capitol. It will never end. They have to try to figure out a way through without imploding, and that’s not so easy when you have the Oompa Loompa still controlling enough of the base that they still won’t acknowledge that he lost. The biggest problem is that the news keeps bringing it back to the Four Year Mistake, so that the base can’t heal and move on. They keep getting re-riled up. The entire Republican Party is floundering harder than I’ve ever seen them in my entire life. There’s really no way through, no way up, and no way down. They’re stuck where they are, and every time they start to move, the Tucker’s drag it back to the Whopper Whomper. The base believes in him for some reason, and as a result, every time he is mentioned, the angry gets riled again and they’re kind of trapped. If you were in that position, what would you do? Give up everything you believe in because you backed the worst possible horse, or keep going? Everyone would keep going. They’re trying to, but Bogus Bow-Tie’s teleprompter won’t let it move forward.

    • Former Vice-President Dick Cheney now says he’s disturbed at what the Republican Party has become. I’m like, seriously? Ronald Reagan’s insipid presidency began the GOP’s descent into madness, and Newt Gingrich furthered the decline with his intense personal assaults on Bill Clinton. For those of us with more than half a brain, Donald Trump’s tenure in the White House solidified the Republican Party’s intellectual collapse into the pit of political despair.

      After the Watergate fiasco, many said the GOP was finished. But it rose from the ashes with the help of Reagan and his right-wing sycophants. I honestly don’t see how it can survive in its present form.

      • Watergate was a unique thing that only seen from a historical perspective is something quite unique. It was the complete collapse of everything at the time, and everyone was sure of it… yet, it wasn’t. both Nixon and the GOP continued on… and rose from the ashes.

        Teflon Trump may manage that mess again
