Most Ridiculous Moment - February 7, 2016


It was an apocalyptic day on the Sunday talk shows, with the first primary just days away, candidates are trying to outdo each other 
asserting we are all doomed.

Hillary Clinton was on Meet the Press, where Chuck Todd asked her why she isn't doing better in New Hampshire pollling. She laughed and said, “You know, who knows?”
Marco Rubio appeared on ABC, where, bizarrely, he doubled down on robotically repeating that President Obama has spent seven years very cleverly and effectively trying to destroy America.

Marco assured George Stephanopoulos that “Barack Obama wants us to abandon those principles that he has spent seven years putting in place - policies that rip them from us: undermining the Constitution, undermining free enterprise, undermining our standing in the world, weakening America, apologizing for us on the global stage.”

If that doesn't scare you, Rubio informed the host “The reason why I'm running is if we elect someone like that for the next four years, I think it may be too late for America 
to turn around.”

But as usual, the most appalling moment came from Donald Trump.

On Meet The Press, he told Chuck Todd, 
“I've spent very little because I haven't had to, because people like you put me 
out all the time.”

He defended him from charges of sexism by saying, “It's totally - look, I think there are some women - there's one sitting right over there in the beautiful red dress. You see that woman over there? I have great respect for that woman over there.” He was referring 
to Andrea Mitchell.

On ABC, he defended trying to steal an elderly woman's house for his casino parking lot by saying he “let the court stand as opposed to going higher up,” although he litigated for three years all the way to the state Supreme Court.

He explained his health care plan would take away states' rights, and “you're going to work out some kind of a deal with hospitals”

He said he wants to overturn the Supreme Court decision finding equal rights for gays, saying, “I'm talking about bringing people together.” When Stephanopoulos asked 
“But how does that move us to equality?” 
Trump replied, “We'll find out.”

George asked again, “how does that move 
us toward equality for gays and lesbians?”

Trump said, “look, George, it's very simple. We're going to bring our country together. We're going to unify our country.”

He also demonstrated his deep knowledge 
of history, saying “This country is so totally divided, it's probably almost never been 
as divided as it is right now and we have to bring it together.”

He doubled down on the doomsaying, stating “We have right now a country that's under siege. It's under siege from a people, from - we're like living in medieval times.” And “We are living in a time that's as evil as any time that there has ever been.” and “This hasn't happened since Medieval times. There's never been anything like this.”

With this in mind, he insisted “I would bring back waterboarding. And I would make it a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding,” 
and “I would absolutely authorize something beyond waterboarding," and “I would certainly approve waterboarding. They laugh at us. Our enemies laugh at us, George. 
They say waterboarding, they don't even think it's 
a form -- you know, they don't even view that as real torture.”

When Chuck Todd said “We're supposed to be better than that. They want to be barbaric. We're not barbaric,” Trump ridiculed him, while George Stephanopoulos said, 
“Do we win by being more like them?”

Trump replied “Yes. I'm sorry. You have to do it that way,” leading George to reply, 
“So, we're going to chop off heads.”

So, because Barack Obama has been trying destroy America, it's probably too late to save the country, the nation has never been more divided in American history, and terrorists are horrible, vicious, ruthless, and evil, so we should become just like them.

And that's the most ridiculous thing that happened this Sunday.
