“Jefferson Sessions—I said it right this time. I didn’t say Jefferson Davis. He’s a Confederate Attorney General. And as John Lewis said so aptly the other day, [Jeff Sessions] can be nice and friendly, but we know what his policies have meant and what he’s been up to throughout his tenure, so I think we do have to be very concerned about that.”
“The ideology of racism promoted by the @FoxNews and Co. breeds the terrorists who commit #CharlestonShooting”
“That stuff is incredible. He [Obama] is their president, Joy [Reid]. I mean, it’s not even thinly veiled racism at this point.”
“Some of the right, even Scott Brown up in N.H. is talking about Islamic terrorism. They always throw in the world Islamic making an ethnic thing. He said I’m not going to let it become an ethnic thing. It’s the terrorism I’m against not Islam. Made that point strong.”
“Obama reminds me of the black kid at a white school that don’t nobody want to play with… I think he’s done the best job a man in his position could do under the circumstances.”
“Overall, Republican policies are targeted to hurt minority Americans. Paul Ryan’s budget hurts. Their actions hurt.
…I do believe that the conservatives in this country continue to fuel racism by their policies that attack minorities in this country and try to keep the working folk down. It emboldens people who are in power to say what they say with absolutely no responsibility whatsoever. Kids are watching. They’re listening. What kind of example are we setting?”
“…racist, misogynist, money-grubbing people have so much power over the rest of us. And want things to go back—not to 1955, but to 1855. There are a lot of people out there that do not want black people to vote, do not want Latinos to vote. Do not want old people to vote, or young people to vote. Because generally, people like you are liberal.
It’s absolutely possible that the Republicans will take over the Senate as well as the House. And we will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens. I mean, colleges will start closing up if they, if these people have their way. They don’t think money should go to giving you people dangerous ideas about how the world should be run.”
“Hillary’s gonna win. Trust me. And it’s a two-for-one: Bill is the coolest dude in the game, still plays saxophone, and every woman in the world wants him. It’s a two-for-one. Hillary’s gonna win. Everybody laughed at me when I said Obama was going to win, but I knew what he represented. But I know what Hillary represents: She represents a woman in power, and she did great as the Secretary of State. She’s gonna win.
…The Tea Party guys? The guys with the nigger jokes in 2014? They’re all trying to learn how to do the Dougie. Please. While their daughters are all twerking. Trust me: Miley tells me all the time. Not saying that about Billy Ray, but I’m saying Miley tells me all the time: All those little girls, all those girls with their Republican daddies, they’re twerkin’ somewhere listening to Jay Z and Beyoncé and doin’ the “Happy” dance. And that’s black.”
