The Dumbest of the Dumbest of the Week
by Jesse J. Lewis, Sr.
Mike Huckabee, potential presidential candidate, who has spent the last month discussing Beyoncé, also discussed her in his recently released book, ‘God Guns, Grits and Gravy.’ Ninety-nine percent of all the people in the world are concerned and committed to their children. They want to make sure they have good moral character, education and a chance to share in the American Dream.
Huckabee was just getting warmed up. His next target: Jay Z, music mogul and Beyoncé’s husband. About Jay Z, Huckabee wonders, “does it occur to him that he is arguably crossing the line from husband to pimp by exploiting his wife as a sex object?
Those people running for president should be discussing infrastructure, ISIS, and saving poor people. I would suggest they read John Hope Bryant’s book, “Saving the Middle Class,” instead of insulting the first family and Beyoncé, which is totally irreverent.
Dr. Ben Carson, by most accounts, is an excellent neurosurgeon. I would submit that he is the second dumbest politician in America. He is second because I feel reasonably assured that of all politicians in America, there must be at least one dumber than he is. Ben Carson upheld ISIS, as an example of the United States during comments before the Republican National Committee.
“We’ve got ISIS. They’ve got the wrong philosophy, but they’re willing to die for what they believe, while we are busy giving away every belief and every value for the sake of political correctness. We have to change that.”
Carson acknowledged his comments were likely to spark controversy and gain headlines but he dismissed the press attention. The remarks are similar to ones he made previously, likening the United States government to Nazi Germany in that both, he argued, worked to silence their opponents. Many within the establishment wing of the party remain wary of him, however, because of his talent for those remarks that make him so popular with the far right. He also started a firestorm of criticism over comments he made that Obamacare was the ‘worst thing’ to happen to the U.S. since slavery.
What he really was saying at the conference was that the American soldier does not have a commitment to defend the U.S. of America. How do you think the families of those people feel who have died for the country and those who came back with one leg, one arm and no eyesight?
I think he would find it very difficult for his wife and children to vote for him.
Mitt Romney. One time, two times, and three times. Mitt Romney has run for President, so far, three times. He has two more times to go to tie his father’s record who ran five times. He has three more times to go to break his father’s record. In my personal opinion, this is what he is attempting to do.
If you remember, the last time he ran he spoke before the NAACP, he played the race card so the NAACP wouldn’t vote for him. He assumed he’d pick up a lot of white votes because of this. He called over 50 percent of the people in the country freeloaders who he wasn’t going to try to appeal to for their vote.
Now he’s saying rich people get richer, which he is one of, and we need to help the poor folks. I surmise that he doesn’t even know any poor folks.
“The Mayor is a socialist”
O’Reilly, Fox’s highest-rated host, calls possible lawsuits from Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo that her city may sue Fox News ‘ridiculous.’ Hidalgo told CNN Chrisitiane Amanpour that Fox News had “insulted” her city through repetitive coverage of supposed “no-go” zones for non-Muslims in Paris and elsewhere in Europe. Fox News has apologized for inaccurate comments about Muslims in Europe.
Among O’Reilly’s points:
– “The mayor is a socialist.”
– “Fox News isn’t even seen in France, because they block it.”
– “This is just an attention-getter.”
O’Reilly accused Hidalgo of ‘playing to the left’ and added ‘The suit’s going nowhere. It’s ridiculous.”
Mayor Hildalgo said, “I think we’ll have to sue. The image of Paris has been prejudiced, and the honor of Paris has been prejudiced.”
The ‘no-go’ zone idea has been largely discredited and French media outlets have had a field day with Fox’s coverage. Bill O’Reilly said, “I didn’t have anything to do with this.” Then he went after Hildalgo.
His guest, media analyst Bernie Goldberg, said, “I don’t know what the laws are in France. If this were in America, it would be called a frivolous lawsuit… Anybody can sue anybody, but a city can’t win a lawsuit became it’s been insulted.”
Fox News executive vice president Michael Clements called the lawsuit ‘misplaced.”
“We empathize with the citizens of France as they go thorough a healing process and return to everyday life. However, we find the mayor’s comments regarding a lawsuit misplaced.”
