Monday night, before I went to bed, I saw that three Cleveland women were found and released from captivity as the news broke. As my typical morning routine, I woke up Tuesday morning to CNN. Before my eyes opened, I heard a voice of a man talking, and I instantly knew we had a new star in the midst; a “star” that would surely make his way to Youtube and auto-tuning.
Charles Ramsey, known as the hero who kicked down the door to save Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight, has been making quite the name for himself as national news outlets are scoring interviews with him. The best interview to date has to be the exclusive with Anderson Cooper on CNN’s AC 360. This is where the nation gets a glimpse of that “old school” dialect, that even Anderson couldn’t comprehend. Many of you think that he is a joke, but its no question that Charles Ramsey is funny, and knows that he is funny. Essentially everything Charles says is classic, but here are the top 15 quotes from Charles Ramsey that could make Dave Chappelle come back and do a show!
