Pete Buttigieg, on those Notre Dames grads who walked out on Mike Pence:
“What I appreciate about it is it’s clear that the students want to express their commitment to tolerance and the values that they believe a Catholic University ought to uphold, and that this administration is not compatible with those values. And at the same time, I think they found a very respectful way to do it.”
Let me make this queer: the school has a right to ask Pence to speak, and Pence has a right to speak, and the students have a right to walk out in protest.
It’s called Free Speech for a reason.
Wilbur Ross, U.S. Commerce Secretary, on the absence of protestors in Saudi Arabia:
“There was not a single hint of a protester anywhere there during the whole time we were there. Not one guy with a bad placard.”
Saudi Arabia often beheads protestors, something Wilbur didn’t really seem to care about.
PS Wilbur is the same f%k who called _____’s bombing of Syria the “after dinner entertainment” at Mar-a-Lago.
Billy Bush, trying to revive his career after being _____’s sidekick in PussyGate:
“My [then] 15-year-old, Mary, called me ... in tears: ‘Dad, Dad, Dad,’ and I said, ‘Everything is going to be fine, Mary. Everything’s going to be OK.’ It’s just instinctively what you say to your daughter. And she said, ‘No, why were you laughing at the things that he was saying on that bus, Dad? They weren’t funny.’”
Odd that a fifteen year old girl knows how disgusting that conversation was and Dad had no idea, even though he was raising daughters.
He never once thought that this could be _____ speaking about his girls, his wife, or any woman he worked with; he just laughed.
And now he’s trying to redeem himself.
Sorry Billy, you’ll always be the guy who laughed about sexual harassment.
Mo’Nique, actress and comic, who won an Oscar for Precious, on being shunned by Hollywood:
“What is that black d—k connected to? That black man? So no, I was not blackballed. I was white-balled by some black d—ks who have no balls. Thank you, Mr. Lee Daniels. Thank you, Mr. Tyler Perry. Thank you, Ms. Oprah Winfrey. I know they like to say, ‘Mo’Nique, you talk too motherf—kin’ much.’ It would kill me not to say the real s—t … You are not paying me equally. You are not treating me fairly, so you can suck my d—k if I had one. I got a phone call from Lee Daniels [in 2015] and he said to me, ‘Mo’Nique, you’ve been blackballed.’ And I said, ‘I’ve been blackballed? Why have I been blackballed?’ And he said, ‘Because you didn’t play the game.' There have been people that have said, ‘Mo’Nique, she can be difficult.’ They could probably be right. One of the networks said to [Daniels] that I was ‘really difficult to work with.’ And I said, ‘Well, that’s funny, because I’ve never even worked with them, but OK.’ I was offered the role in ‘The Butler’ that Oprah Winfrey played. I was also approached by ‘Empire’ to be on ‘Empire.’ And I was also offered the role as Richard Pryor’s grandmother [in a new biopic about the late comedian]. Each of those things that [Daniels] offered me was taken off the table. They all just went away. But that’s just part of the business, you know? I can’t be upset at anybody, ’cause life is too good. It’s just what it is.”
Strong opinionated black woman.
Jason Chaffetz, saying that people who leak information, even about crimes like colluding with Russia to steal an election, should be punished:
“I don’t care who it is. Democrat or Republican, you cannot have that happen. You probably ought to put some handcuffs on them and put them in jail.”
Yeah, the people who speak out about the crime, even anonymously, should be punished, while those who commit the crimes go free?
And then what about _____ who leaked confidential information to the Russians, Jason? Where are your cried of ‘Lock him up’ now. You pandering f%k?
