Back in 2013, the owner of Liberal America, Tiffany Willis, did a list of dumb Republican quotes. We’ve found some recent additions for her list, so without further ado, here are more stupid Republican quotes for you to facepalm at:
1. Trumplethinskin And His Wall
At his campaign launch, Trump said:
“I would build a great wall, and nobody builds walls better than me. Believe me. And I’ll build it very inexpensively. I’ll build a great, great wall on our southern border and I will have Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.”
2. The Ridiculousness That Launched His Campaign
Trump said this at his campaign launch:
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”
3. Limbaugh On Women
Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh actually said:
“Look at what they [Democrats] are doing to women with their policies: They’re demeaning them, they’re turning them into nothing but abortion machines. There’s so much that we could be doing to just fight back, but the Republican Party, even if they had all the money in the world right now, doesn’t seem inclined to do any of this.”
4. Comparing Women To Cancer Patients
Ken Buck, a Colorado district attorney, said:
“Yes, I am pro-life. While I understand a woman wants to be in control of her body — it’s certainly the feeling that I had when I was a cancer patient, I wanted to be in control of the decisions that were made concerning my body — there is another fundamental issue at stake. And that’s the life of the unborn child.”
5. Ben Carson And His Pyramids
This idiot. Ben Carson is not a historian:
“My own personal theory is that Joseph built the pyramids to store grain. Now all the archaeologists think that they were made for the pharaohs’ graves. But, you know, it would have to be something awfully big if you stop and think about it. And I don’t think it’d just disappear over the course of time to store that much grain.”
6. Michele Bachman. That Is All.
She thinks Obama was wiping ISIS from the terror training manuals for FBI agents:
“And now Obama is allowing terror suspect groups to write the FBI’s terror training manual.”
7. Rick Santorum On Contraception.
“One of the things I will talk about, that no president has talked about before, is I think the dangers of contraception in this country. It’s not okay. It’s a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be. [Sex] is supposed to be within marriage.”
8. Mitt Romney On Foreclosure.
At least he didn’t say “Bah humbug!” He might as well have:
“Don’t try and stop the foreclosure process. Let it run its course and hit the bottom, allow investors to buy homes, put renters in them, fix the homes up and let it turn around and come back up.”
9. Mike Huckabee On Obama’s Terrorism Plans
Yes, he actually said this shit on Faux Noise:
“After this attack in West Africa, Obama’s new domestic terrorism plan probably requires Americans to memorize Koran verses.”
10. Carly Fiorina On Planned Parenthood.
She said this about those Planned Parenthood tapes:
“As regards Planned Parenthood, anyone who has watched this videotape, I dare Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama to watch these tapes. Watch a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking while someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain. This is about the character of our nation, and if we will not stand up in and force President Obama to veto this bill, shame on us.”
11. George Pataki on abortion.
“We can put an absolute ban on taxpayer funds paying for abortions.”
One problem, George. You already can’t use taxpayer funds for abortions.
12. Mike Huckabee On Transgender Soldiers
This doesn’t even make sense!
“The military is not a social experiment. The purpose of the military is to kill people and break things.”
13. John Kasich And His Analogies
He referred to our drug problem with the phrase, “a tsunami of drugs.”
14. Steve Hickey on Gay Sex
“Gay sex is not good for the body or mind. Pardon a crude comparison but regarding men with men, we are talking about a one-way meant only for the garbage truck to go down.”
15. Bill O’Reilly on Voters
Yes, he actually said this shit.
“Many American citizens are simply dumb. They don’t know anything. And when you don’t know anything, you’ll buy anything and propaganda rules.”
