“On the Holmes Front,” with Frank Holmes
Politics inspires exaggerated, farfetched, even outlandish statements — but 2018 has had some of the most ridiculous whoopers in American history.
Here are our top 8 most outrageous statements, lies, and piece of fake news from 2018:
- Putting “America First” “betrays American values.”
It’s hard to see how Donald Trump could pick a slogan more patriotic than “America First.” But USA Today wrote an editorial headlined, “Donald Trump’s ‘America First’ nationalism betrays American values.”
The newspaper claimed those two words somehow caused World War I, the rise of the KKK, and the Nazi Party.
Meanwhile, an Obama-appointed judge in San Francisco, Edward Chen suggested that the phrase “America First” was actually a racist code.
President Trump has always said an America First immigration plan means taking in the best applicants of all races — if they apply legally. Trump stood by the term… and won huge cheers and chants of “U-S-A” from the Young Black Leadership Summit.
- Russian collusion was “the greatest crime in American history.”
The phony Russiagate “scandal” has driven Trump-haters crazy… especially establishment Republicans.
Steve Schmidt, the RINO who managed John McCain’s presidential campaign, said Russia’s Facebook ads might be “the greatest crime in American history: the subversion of an American election by a foreign power, colluding with—in conspiracy with—the president’s campaign.”

Leave it to a deranged Never Trumper to say that a make believe “crime” is worse than 9/11.
- There is no Deep State!
He raised his right hand, promised to tell the truth, then looked Congress in the eye and cleared his throat.
More concerning is the person who made this statement: Donald Trump’s CIA director, Mike Pompeo.
Pompeo is protecting his agents’ morale. But he can’t deny that some within the agency did their best to bring his boss down.
- Trump supporters are so stupid, they’d “welcome an invasion” from Russia.
The only thing liberals hate more than Donald Trump are Trump voters.
Author Malcolm Nance, told MSNBC Americans had been fooled — duped! — by a nefarious Russian plot “to create a disinformation frame around” America and keep “constantly tearing them apart and feeding them with false information” until Americans “would actually welcome an invasion.”
When host Brian Williams said, “You won’t be surprised in the end if they had American help,” and Nance responded, “Absolutely.”
In the eyes of the media, you either support Barack Obama or you’re a traitor just waiting to launch “Red Dawn” in reverse.
- Obama caused Trump’s economic boom.
“When you hear all this talk about economic miracles right now,” said Barack Obama on the campaign trail, “remember who started it.”
Oh, we remember, alright.
Obama’s terrible economy literally killed the middle class. He loved to tell Americans that Donald Trump would need “a magic wand” to bring their jobs back.
Well, abracadabra, Barry!
Manufacturing jobs have returned to the Midwest. Factories are opening. Black and Hispanic unemployment is at its lowest level in history.
He did it; you couldn’t.
- Donald Trump became president “by fraud” and needs to be stripped of his office.
Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, has said that Trump paid hush money to Stormy Daniels to keep her from going public about their one-night stand. But according to the media, the blackmail victim is actually the criminal.
Barbara McQuade, an Obama-appointed former U.S. attorney, told MSNBC the payoff proves that “President Trump procured the presidency by fraud.”
Of course the alleged “cover-up,” whatever it was, didn’t sway a single vote.
Trump never pretended to be the perfect husband or a model of marital fidelity. He just said he’d be a good president.
But that doesn’t matter to the media. They’re grasping at this straw try to stop him from doing the job we elected him to do… because he hurts people’s feelings.
- Justice Brett Kavanaugh was a gang rapist.
We thought the Democrats had sunk as low as they could go when they dredged up flimsy accusations that a 17-year-old Brett Kavanaugh groped a girl at a party… but we hadn’t seen anything yet!
“In approximately 1982, I became the victim of one of these ‘gang’ or ‘train’ rapes where Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh were present,” said his third accuser, Julie Swetnick, in a statement filed by porn lawyer Michael Avenatti.

Her accusation mirrored all the slurs and slime thrown at Kavanaugh: There were no witnesses, no proof, and no serious reason to believe a word of it.
To top things off Swetnick’s old boyfriend, Richard Vinneccy, told the public point-blank, “I don’t believe her.”
The case against Kavanaugh collapsed, and he’s now the newest justice on the Supreme Court.
- We don’t need a wall! Let’s just mow the grass on the border instead!
Beto O’Rourke, a 2018 loser and possible 2020 presidential candidate, told Stephen Colbert the Democrats’ position on border security this year: “We don’t need a wall.”
That comment, by itself, is the most ridiculous statement of 2018. Drugs, human smugglers, and weapons flow across the border… in both directions… and Americans are dying because of it.

But leave it to Nancy Pelosi to go to the next level. She said Trump doesn’t need to build a wall on the Mexican border… and instead, “fencing will do—or mowing the grass, so people can’t be smuggled through the grass,” she told The Arizona Republic in February.
It’s been 10 months, and she had stiff competition.
But that remark is easily the most outrageous and insane comment of 2018.
Join The Horn as we hold the elites accountable for their words, and actions, through 2019.
Happy New Year!
