Mitt Romney, comparing himself to _____:
“His first year is very similar to things I’d have done my first year. The things he’s actually done have been better than I expected.”
Mock the disabled? State that some racists are good people? Screw the environment? Incite world war?
Hey Mittsy? F**k off.
Lance Bass, on why he never came out while NSYNC was together:
“The thing I want to say here today is something I’ve been trying to put into words maybe my whole life. Growing up in Mississippi and in a Southern Baptist church, in a town where everyone knows your business, I had a secret. I was gay. … And at the time, I thought that I would never be able to tell anyone because not only was I terrified of the lasting rejection … I was certain that that would happen … but more than that I didn’t want to jeopardize the careers of these guys up here, much less the hundreds of amazing people who worked tirelessly to bring NSYNC to the world. I thought if I had come out, NSYNC would be over. So I kept my secret. And our wildest dreams were coming true and we were so incredibly thankful. And I still am. But so many nights on stage, I’d see so many young, gay fans singing their hearts out and I wanted so badly to let you know, I was you. I just didn’t have the strength then. But I do today and so let me say loud and proud to all my LGBT brothers and sisters, who embrace me and show me the way to be who I am, thank you so much.”
No matter how famous you are, coming out is a personal journey and no one can take that first step for you.
John McCain, on this current term being his last:
“This is my last term. If I hadn’t admitted that to myself before this summer, a stage 4 cancer diagnosis acts as ungentle persuasion. I’m freer than colleagues who will face the voters again. I can speak my mind without fearing the consequences much. And I can vote my conscience without worry. [_____] has declined to distinguish the actions of our government from the crimes of despotic ones. The appearance of toughness, or a reality show facsimile of toughness, seems to matter more than any of our values.”
Too bad McCain never thougt to speak up before his diagnosis, but he’s what’s wrong with career politicans: once elected all they worry about s being reelected and pandering to their base and the lobbyists who support them.
That’s why we need to vote them all out, every single time.
Stephen Colbert, on the White House Correspondents Association after they dogged Michelle Wolf for her routine:
“Look, you didn’t like [it], you have that right. Don’t invite her back again, but grow a pair. This was a roast! And you’re the ones who hired Michelle Wolf! Being mad at her for doing her job is like accusing the valet of briefly stealing your car. And stop acting like you’re surprised. I thought news people did research! But you’re telling me you couldn’t spend 90 seconds on YouTube to find out what her act was like? As a great man once said, ‘Fake News.'”
True dat. You don’t ask Michelle Wolf to perform because you think she’ll be sweetness and light, you ask her to perform because she will bring it.
Roseanne Barr, on the anger over her support for _____;
“Oh yeah, people are mad about that. But, you know, I don’t give a f**k …. Well everybody had to choose for themselves according to their own conscience who they thought was the lesser of two evils. You know, everybody chose that. So, I’m not gonna put anybody down who didn’t vote like me. This is America. It’s a free country. And, you know, when you weigh it all together, you know, I just felt like we needed a whole new thing, all the way, bottom to top.”
Trouble is, you tool, you voted for a man who has never done one single thing to help anyone but himself, and never a thing to help the very character you play on TV.
And, since you’ve always played up your support of the LGBT community, how do you explain voting for this anti-LGBT idiot?
Oh yeah, you can’t, so why don’t you STFU.
Kanye West, on his “breakdown” last year being caused by an opioid addiction after plastic surgery:
“Two days before [the onstage meltdown] I was in the hospital. I was on opioids. I was addicted to opioids. I had plastic surgery because I was trying to look good for y’all. I got liposuction because I didn’t want y’all to call me fat like y’all called Rob at the wedding and made him fly home before me and Kim got married. I was taking two pills a day at that time,” he said. “When I left the hospital how many pills do you think I was given? Seven. I went from taking two pills to taking seven. The reason why I dropped those tweets and everything is because I was drugged the f–k out bro, and I’m not drugged out … these pills that they want me to take three of a day, I take one a week maybe, two a week. Ya’ll had me scared of myself, of my vision, so I took some pills so I wouldn’t go the hospital and prove everyone right. We are drugged out. We are following other people’s opinions. We are controlled by the media and today it all changes.”
See? It’s your fault Kanye was addicted to drugs. Cuz you would have called him fat and he couldn’t handle it so he took drugs and had liposuction because of you.
Seriously. This ass acts the fool and takes zero responsibility.
But, then how do we explain his “slavery is a choice” lunacy now if he’s no longer an addict?
Laura Ingraham, Fox News tool, on Giuliani contradicting her Hair Furor’s claims that he didn’t know about Michael Cohen’s payment to Stormy Daniels:
“Did Trump pay it after April 6th? The left is jumping all over that tonight, saying, ‘What the heck? He did know, he didn’t know? Rudy’s on TV?’ What’s going on here? You have the president on tape on Air Force One saying he did not know about the payment, and you’ll have to ask Michael Cohen about that. [Then] Rudy just goes on with Hannity and says ‘Oh no, he reimbursed them.’ I love Rudy, but they better have an explanation for that [because] that’s a problem.”
Camille Cosby, going cray after her husband’s guilty verdict in his sex abuse case:
“The overall media, with their frenzied, relentless demonization of him and unquestioning acceptance of accusers’ allegations without any attendant proof, have superseded the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments, which guarantee due process and equal protection, and thereby eliminated the possibility of a fair trial and unbiased jury. Bill Cosby was labelled as guilty because the media and accusers said so… period … Since when are all accusers truthful? History disproves that…for example, Emmett Till’s accuser immediately comes to mind. In 1955, she testified before a jury of white men in a Mississippi courtroom that a 14-year-old African American boy had sexually assaulted her, only to later admit several decades later in 2008 that her testimony was false."
Oh Camille, you knew all along this shiz was going down, so you need to close your mouth. It isn’t one woman, or two, or even three. It’s fifty-seven women telling the same story, and for you to compare your rapist husband to Emmett Till is disgusting.
You knew, but didn’t want your lifestyle to be disrupted so you carried his secrets and shame.
You’re just as guilty.
Sandra Bullock, on foster care, adoption, and her two children:
“Look: I’m all for Republican, Democrat, whatever, but don’t talk to me about what I can or can’t do with my body until you’ve taken care of every child who doesn’t have a home or is neglected or abused … Let’s all just refer to these kids as ‘our kids.’ Don’t say ‘my adopted child.’ No one calls their kid their ‘IVF child’ or their ‘oh, sh-t, I went to a bar and got knocked-up child.’ Let just say, ‘our children.’ Lou is supersensitive. I call him my 78-year-old son. He’s like Shecky Greene, a Jewish Catskills comic. He’s wise and kind. I saw that when they handed him to me. There was a spiritual bigness to him. I was like, “I hope I don’t eff that up.” And Laila is just unafraid. She’s a fighter, and that’s the reason she’s here today. She fought to keep her spirit intact. Oh my god, what she is going to accomplish. She’s going to bring some real change.”
I remember years ago reading the obituary of George Burns, and it said he was survived by his daughter and adopted son. He adopted the boy as an infant and yet some sixty-odd years later he was still the “adopted” son.
I’m with Bullock on this one. Quit with the labels.
