Hello and welcome to the Watcher’s Council’s ‘Weasel Of The Week’ nominations, where we award the famed golden plastic Weasel to a public figure who particularly deserves to be slimed and mocked for his or her dastardly deeds during the week. Every Tuesday morning, tune in for the Weasel of the Week nominations and check back Thursday to see which Weasel gets the votes and walks off with the statuette of shame!
Here are this weeks’ nominees…
Former Secretary of State, Senator And First Lady Hillary “Benghazi Babe’ Clinton!!
The Independent Sentinel: Hillary Clinton, for being a political hack.
This week she said:
“Don’t let anybody tell you it’s corporations and businesses create jobs,” Clinton said.
“You know that old theory, ‘trickle-down economics,’” she continued. “That has been tried, that has failed. It has failed rather spectacularly.”
“You know, one of the things my husband says when people say ‘Well, what did you bring to Washington,’ he said, ‘Well, I brought arithmetic,’” Clinton said, which elicited loud laughs from the crowd.
Of course business creates jobs. She’s playing to the hate the rich crowd. This is a woman who makes $2,777 per minute per speech.
Obama Labor Secretary Thomas ‘Puto’ Perez!!
The Noisy Room: Labor Secretary Thomas Perez who proclaimed that President Barack Obama will take “aggressive executive action” on immigration, which Perez said will bring about more “shared prosperity.”
Addressing the National Press Club this week, Perez, who is reportedly on the short list to be Obama’s next attorney general, said the country needed to “fix our broken immigration system” with comprehensive amnesty legislation that is “big and bold” to ensure that there is “shared prosperity,” which he said is a goal of his Labor Department. Though the Congressional Budget Office determined that comprehensive amnesty legislation would lower the wages of American workers, Labor Secretary Perez championed it.
“Shared prosperity” is Progressive collectivist speak for “shared poverty.” Marxist weasel-worthy.
Turkish President and all around Islamist weasel Recep Tayyip Erdoğan!!
GrEaT sAtAn”S gIrLfRiEnD: For watching from the sidelines as Kurds and ISIL are in a bitter battle for the Syrian town of Kobani on the Turkish border.
For whatever reasons, the Turks do not dig Kurds and their fear of a brand new nation state called Kurdistan shows up Erdogan as cold and calculated as the ancient Bolsheviks that ran Russia in the last millennium. On paper anywrought, Turkey is big and strong and could certainly handle any minorities wanting to secede, yet their behavior towards the Kurds in Kobani is beyond the pale.
CNN ‘News Anchor’ Carol Costello!!
Nice Deb: Although CNN News Anchor Carol Costello shouldn’t have a job after her disturbing antics, last week, she does deserve to be considered for the esteemed title of Weasel of the Week in my humble opinion.
In the shocking segment, Costello could barely contain her glee over hearing new audio of Bristol Palin describing her assault at a party in Alaska a few weeks ago. In fact, Costello called it “quite possibly the best minute and a half of audio we’ve ever come across.”
Costello then proceeded to describe the “massive brawl” and before playing the audio she told her viewers “so sit back and enjoy.”
What you were asked to “sit back and enjoy” was the sound of a tearful and near hysterical Bristol Palin describing to the police the physical assault she had just experienced.
Despite overwhelming approbation from fellow journalists and conservatives appalled by her hypocrisy, Costello has thus far resisted offering an apology on the air for gloating over Bristol Palin’s distress, instead opting to offer a weak and weaselly apology to Politico.
Virginia Right!: I am going to go with Carol Costello of CNN who was absolutely bubbly about Bristol Palin being assaulted.
People that hate Sarah Palin so much ought to be in jail. There is no place in America for such hate by proxy.
Well, there it is! Are these worthy weasels or what? Check back Thursday to see which Weasel walks off with the statuette of shame!
