I couldn't find it with Google either, but that doesn't mean she didn't say it on Fox. AlinPA Nov 2013 #20

she did say there is no scientific study that proves carbon dioxide is harmful to humans.............

When you're that stupid, is anything impossible?..........and does it really matter?

Let's just hope that all those children she claims she fostered have recovered from the experience and have gone on to lead productive lives

Even the structure of the sentences seem correct. Add to that she might actually be that stupid.....

we are all variations of colors. This whole idea of dividing us all up by color is OLD and OBNOXIOUS.

A google search turns up nothing but a random tweet with no attribution.

Occasionally, something that is un-fucking-believable really is unbelievable.

She won't be in Congress in January.




Instead, she'll be spending her time in a federal courtroom defending her illegal campaign activities.

Wish it was a Chinese court. They'd just toss her butt in a "li gao" (prison camp) for a few years.

I can't find independent verification yet that she said it, but there's no doubt in my mind she certainly THINKS it.
