Worst Quotes of the Week – March 26, 2022
“Do you agree…that babies are racist?”
Sen. Ted Cruz, to Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, repeatedly asking about her views on racism, children’s books and critical race theory (CRT)
He specifically asked if she agrees with a children’s book called “Anti-Racist Baby,” by Ibram X. Kendi, which is in the library at Georgetown Day School, a private school in Washington, D.C., at which Jackson was a board member. Cruz held up a copy of the book and described it as one of the “most stunning” taught at the school. He claimed it teaches children that babies are taught to be racist, not born racist, and that they are encouraged to admit if they have been racist and to talk about it.
In response, Jackson noted, “Georgetown Day School, just like the religious school that Justice [Amy Coney] Barrett was on the board of, is a private school.”
“On a scale of 1 to 10, how faithful would you say you are? Do you attend church regularly?”
Sen. Lindsey Graham, inquiring about Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s faith and how important it was to her
Jackson replied that, although faith played a big role in her life, she was reluctant to talk about it in detail because “I want the public to have confidence in my ability to separate out my personal views.” Jackson noted she is “Protestant, non-denominational”.
Graham conceded that judges could separate their religious beliefs with the way they rule. It must be highlighted, though, that Graham voted to confirm Jackson three times to other posts: her current seat on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, a court considered second only to the U.S. Supreme Court; her previous seat on the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia; and her previous seat on the U.S. Sentencing Commission.
Worst Quotes of the Week – June 26, 2021
“You know after they said penetration in the end zone they lost me.”
Joy Behar, regarding Carl Nassib becoming the first openly gay active player in the NFL, on “The View”
In all fairness, Behar has apologized for her comment.
“If he’s gonna tie them together, he can forget it! I’m not doing that. That’s extortion! I’m not going to do that. The Dems are being told you can’t get your bipartisan work product passed unless you sign on to what the left wants, and I’m not playing that game.”
Sen. Lindsey Graham, on President Biden’s multi-trillion-dollar infrastructure plan
“President Donald Trump is also one of a kind. He too disrupted the status quo, he challenged the establishment… and now, as then, there is no going back.”
Former Vice-President Mike Pence, comparing Donald Trump Ronald Reagan
Pence went on to say, “Under President Trump’s leadership we were able to achieve things Republicans have been talking about since the days of Barry Goldwater. It’s true.”
For the record, Goldwater lost the 1964 U.S. presidential election to Lyndon B. Johnson in the largest landslide in U.S. election history.
Worst Quotes of the Week – June 12, 2021
“I miss Trump.”
Sen. Lindsey Graham, in an interview with Laura Ingraham on FOX News
“I want to go in and be a thoughtful disrupter in Sacramento. We need to change the system, and I want to change the system for the positive.”
Caitlyn Jenner, in a June 10 appearance on “The View”
During a tense exchange with the show’s hosts, Jenner criticized California Gov. Gavin Newsome, ranted about immigration and refused to agree that Donald Trump lost the 2020 election.

Worst Quotes of the Week – April 3, 2021
“I own an AR-15. If there’s a natural disaster in South Carolina where the cops can’t protect my neighborhood, my house will be the last one that the gang will come to because I can defend myself.”
Sen. Lindsey Graham, during a discussion with FOX News’ Chris Wallace about last week’s mass shooting at a supermarket in Colorado
“But the last vestige of the pro-American meritocracy still standing was the U.S. military. From the progressive perspective, the military was too masculine, had way too many Republicans, and a dangerous knack of turning minorities into patriotic, self-reliant conservatives. This could not stand. Michelle Obama’s decision to make military spouses her top initiative as First Lady was the first clue that they had their sights set on the U.S. Armed Forces.”
Rachel Campos-Duffy, on FOX News Primetime, April 1
Campos-Duffy was a member of MTV’s “Real World – San Francisco” cast in 1994 where her conservative views often put her at odds with her housemates. I actually recall seeing her on that show.
“It’s time to teach corporate America that if they attack Georgia or any state like it for doing what they did to secure their right to vote, these corporations are going to face the wrath of GOP officials as well as the tens of millions of American consumers who support them. That means lobbyists and CEOs, they need to be told in no uncertain terms if you try to help the left rig elections, we’re going to punish you.”
Laura Ingraham, reacting to protests by corporations over Georgia’s new voting restrictions
Creepiest Quote of the Week – March 13, 2021
“What I’m trying to do is just harness the magic. To me, Donald Trump is sort of a cross between Jesse Helms, Ronald Reagan and P.T. Barnum.”
Sen. Lindsey Graham, on Axios
“There’s a sucker born every minute.”
Sappiest Quote of the Week – March 6, 2021
“I actually like President Trump. He’s been very nice to me. He’s allowed me to be in his world. He allows me to give my two cents worth on issues when he was president.”
Sen. Lindsey Graham, expressing his truest sentiments about former President Donald Trump on “The Sean Hannity Show” 03/01/21
