With the nuttiness of politics and pop culture over the past 15 years, I think the American people have gotten used to the lies and willful gaslighting by “our betters.” You remember, “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor,” and “We have to pass the bill so you know what's in it.” But whether it's been this pandemic, the COVID theater, or just the arrogance of the elitist hive minds, it seems that more and more they are simply showing us who they are; and as my colleague Brandon Morse said, they aren't even sorry about it.
Not only did these statements made over the past year show the lofty opinion these people have of themselves, but of their bargain basement opinion of us.
Here's the good thing: Their credibility has crumbled, and continues to erode with each passing day. Now if some of them could be removed from their positions of power, it would make for a very Happy New Year for many. It can happen–who had it on their bingo card that the Brothers Cuomo would be a byword and a cautionary tale at the end of 2021?
In no particular order, here are the Top 5 Outrageous Comments of 2021:
MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle poo-poos the Rubes and their inflation concerns.
MSNBC's “Senior Business Correspondent” Stephanie Ruhle leads the pack with her dismissive commentary on Americans complaining about inflation, and what it is doing to the price of goods and services.
Inflation airhead: NBC's Stephanie Ruhle says the "dirty little secret" of people complaining about paying higher prices for food and fuel for their homes is they can afford it just fine. According to her, people should have been saving during the pandemic and stocks look good. pic.twitter.com/RQ90focIXJ

“Dirty little secret,” and “we can afford it” are not statements that someone struggling between paying rent and paying for gas (been there, don't want to do it again) wants to hear. Ruhle of Thumb, Stephanie: maybe get out and actually interview some real Americans before going full gonzo on what they can or cannot afford.
Lori Lightfoot to retailers: pay more protection money, homie.
Retail theft, including the smash and grab robberies we have been seeing across the news have this in common: they are primarily happening in blue cities like New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Chicago. When business owners and citizens bombarded the Mayor of Chicago's office with demands that Lori Lightfoot do something about the explosive issue, what was her response? Blame the retailers for not doing enough.
If you own a business in downtown Chicago @chicagosmayor says you should do more to protect your store.

This proves what we've always known about Lightfoot: She is not only a terrible politician, but she is also not the brightest bulb in the box.
Lightfoot continues to explore the inner workings of her sphincter with this cringeworthy video with her “first partner” about the 7 Principles of Kwanzaa.
The seven principles of Kwanzaa are as important as ever and should be a guide for all of us.
Happy Kwanzaa to all who celebrate. 🕯️ pic.twitter.com/kb0EtBwDMY

The inmates in the Chicago asylum were not amused:
Thank you for doing this instead of focusing on all the shootings, mugging and carjackings.
I seriously thought this was a SNL skit. Your city is being torn apart by gang violence and you make videos about Kwanzaa and Covid mandates.
My 2022 bingo card predicts she'll be the next one voted off the island.
London Breed: It's Tony! Toni! Ton?!–ain't nobody got time for masks!
This was back in September, but reflects perfectly the “rules for thee, but not for me,” mentality of the elites. San Francisco Mayor London Breed, who imposed a city-wide indoor mask mandate for public spaces during the Summer, decided she didn't need to follow that mandate because, well, she was watching San Francisco royalty perform live, baby, and just let the “spirit” move her.
I would recommend watching the whole interview (6 minutes 21 seconds), which is a Master Class in how elitist gaslight and obfuscate. Why is me not wearing a mask an issue? I'm vaccinated! San Francisco is following the science. We should be focusing on the fact that live performances are back! And on it goes. Very much on par with her fellow Democrat Mayor Lightfoot, it's never their fault, and how dare you suggest otherwise?
Kamala Harris: She still hasn't been to the Border, but you can scratch Europe off that bucket list!
How elitist is our Affirmative Action Vice President Kamala Harris? RedState has counted the ways. No matter how much the White House tries to prop her up, she just keeps stepping on rakes–expensive ones, mind you, but rakes, nonetheless.
But the tipping point interview that showed just how disconnected she is from reality was with NBC's Lester Holt, when the still awful Biden Border Crisis was exploding with illegals pouring across the Rio Grande.
HARRIS: "We’ve been to the border. So this whole thing about the border."
Harris: "We’ve been to the border."
Harris: "We’ve been to the border."
HOLT: "You haven’t been to the border."
Harris: "I… and I haven’t been to Europe." https://t.co/dftSFsU88F pic.twitter.com/Q6pIdXQqPs

And 10 months after being mantled as “Border Czar,” Harris still hasn't made it. Guatemalan “Root Causes” tour notwithstanding. But we Americans are so relieved that she has finally made it to Europe, and her Paris debut went… well, as well as expected. The GOP is salivating over their 2022 prospects, and at this point, Republicans could run an eggplant against both her and Dementia Joe in 2024 to win back the White House.
Dr. Anthony Fauci: “I AM THE SCIENCE!” You better recognize.
To call Dr. Anthony Fauci a gnome is an insult to gnomes. I have several in my garden, and they make me smile. Any mention of Mengele Jr. results in a twisted visage and an emittance of blue language. The fact that he still hasn't been dragged away in handcuffs even after all the cover ups, lies, and flip flops, reflects the battalion of coverage and protection these elites give each other.
Cringe for certain, but not as Extra cringe as the comment Dr. Fauci made after Thanksgiving on CBS' Face the Nation.
Lawmakers like Sens. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz have called for Dr. Fauci to step down and be prosecuted over the course of COVID-19. Fauci scoffs at such threats, calling it "noise."

What's dangerous is that someone who has been planted in this position for 50 years, and pulls in almost half a million annually, wouldn't know science if it bit him in the behind.
