QUOTES OF THE WEEK

 “The idea that you say artificially nice things about people after they die is weird. I’ve never understood the logic of it. Rush Limbaugh was a terrible person while he was alive. He made a living by attacking the powerless. His death does not in anyway change or redeem that.”
The Young Turks” host Cenk Uygur

“Rush Limbaugh has passed on, but worry not — his memory lives on through bigots everywhere.”
March for Our Lives cofounder Cameron Kasky

“I was 4 days into a weeklong break from Twitter, but Limbaugh dying felt like a necessary moment to reemerge. My sincerest condolences go out to hell’s other residents who now have to deal with being associated with him.”
Media Matters editor Parker Malloy

“I wouldn’t say I was happy that Rush Limbaugh died. It’s more like euphoria.”
Yale Law School professor Scott Shapiro

“If I had to say something positive I guess I’m glad Rush Limbaugh lived long enough to get cancer and die.”
Comedian Paul Tompkins

“Rush Limbaugh was a foul f—k rat who spread nothing but hate & terror throughout his career. His radio show poisoned hundreds of millions of people’s minds. He’s a racist, a misogynist, & homophobe. His death brings me joy.”
Actor Anthony Atamanuik

“Liberals who didn’t listen to Rush, and just read the Media Matters accounts, never understood how funny he was. What set him off from his many imitators was how wildly entertaining he was, and the absolutely unbreakable bond he formed with his listeners.”
Rich Lowry

“Conservatism, Rush wanted you to know, was good for everybody, more people should try it, and it didn’t have to be stuffy or dour; it could be fun.”
Dan McLaughlin

“Everyone knows I love kids better than people.”
Joe Biden

“It’s one thing to have the vaccine, which we didn’t have when we came into office…”
Joe Biden lying

“All that’s been in the news is Trump. The next four years, I want to make sure all the news is the American people. I’m tired of talking about Donald Trump. I don’t want to talk about him anymore.”
Joe Biden

“I take issue with what everybody says about the division. … The nation is not divided.”
Joe Biden (Then why is he calling for unity?)

“Emergency powers should last for a few weeks or maybe a month — just long enough to keep the public safe until the legislature can swing into action. Instead, [Andrew] Cuomo has wielded emergency powers for 11 months — with disastrous consequences for businesses, workers, schoolchildren and the elderly. … Even when governors behave more honorably than Cuomo, prolonged emergency powers are a bad idea. After all, if government by one person produced wiser decisions than government by the people’s elected lawmakers, we’d opt for autocratic government all the time. Why choose it during crises?”
Betsy McCaughey

“White kids are taught to hate their whiteness. Boys are taught to hate their masculinity. Girls to hate their femininity. Children of all races and both sexes are taught to hate their country. We push self-loathing onto our kids and then wonder why they are depressed and suicidal.”
Matt Walsh

“I said if Joe Biden became president, we would lose the border and it’s happening. The surge is already there. … This isn’t by accident. This is by design. This is an open-border strategy. He has bowed to the Left.”
Former acting ICE Director Tom Homan

“There was no stockpile … of vaccines. There was no national strategy or plan for vaccinations. We were leaving it to the states and local leaders to try and figure it out. And so in many ways, we’re starting from scratch on something that’s been raging for almost an entire year!”

VP Kamala Harris (“We certainly are not starting from scratch because there is activity going on in the distribution.” —Dr. Anthony Fauci in January)

“Pretty amazing how ‘Follow The Science’ became ‘Follow The Teachers Unions While Calling Your Opponents Anti-Science’ overnight, and our incredible Journalismers went right along with it.”
Ben Shapiro

“It’s truly appalling that anybody even on the left is willing to defend Andrew Cuomo or teachers unions.”
Liz Wheeler

“I personally would like an apology, not just to me and my family and the other silversmiths but to the fans, all the football fans the other team players. It just upset me that this trophy was disgraced and disrespected by being thrown as if it was a real football. I have a big history of this trophy being made by my father and it’s such an honor and I know all the craftsmen that made it when my dad was there also at Tiffany’s and it takes a lot of hard work. I’ve seen this trophy being made at the factory at Tiffany’s and it’s a beautiful trophy. My father had to chisel the seams, he had to chisel the seams by hand. There is a newspaper article that shows him working on that trophy. The ball is hand-formed and the base is as well. I only watch the game to watch the trophy come out. I like to see all the owners and the football players just hold it up with such pride and hold it up and show everybody and I get goosebumps…. like right now I’m getting goosebumps.”
Lorraine Grohs, the daughter of Greg Grohs, the silversmith at Tiffany and Company from 1967 to 1994, who crafted the very first Vince Lombardi Trophy, was insulted by Tom Brady’s decision to toss the Lombardi Trophy. And now, she’s seeking an apology from the seven-time Super Bowl champion.
