“Here’s a quick thought experiment: If AOC was fat and in her 60s, would anyone listen to another thing she ever said?”
TV personality Adam Carolla, about Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, to FOX News commentator Sean Hannity
Carolla, creator and co-host of the now-defunct “Man Show”, argued that while the 32-year-old politician is “young, vibrant and beautiful,” and “everyone’s always putting a camera and a mike in her face,” her “opinions are idiotic 95 percent of the time.”
“If you’re going to do this, then let’s be truthful about it, because the Holocaust isn’t about race. It’s not about race. It’s about man’s inhumanity to man. That’s what it’s about.”
Whoopi Goldberg, on The View
Goldberg made the comments during a discussion of how the Nazi Holocaust-centered graphic novel “Maus” was banned by a Tennessee school board. That school board banned the book, Goldberg said, because there were complaints about the novel containing nudity and bad language. “The minute you turn it into race, it goes down this alley. Let’s talk about it for what it is – it’s how people treat each other. It’s a problem. It doesn’t matter if you’re Black or white because Black, white, Jews – everybody.”
Goldberg apologized the next day for her comments, but ABC announced immediately they had decided to suspend her for two weeks.
