The tolerant left. You have to love people like Melissa Harris-Perry, who seems to think that a white republican cannot do a good job raising an adopted black child simply because they are republican.
Its easy to see why Ms. Perry would say such things on the air. She probably figured its pretty hard to offend all 2 of the people that watch that horrible show she is on and there would not be much hate mail. JD
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry apologized Tuesday for openly mocking Mitt Romney’s black adopted grandson, after Sarah Palin led the chorus of conservatives who criticized the cable news host.
The Romney family Christmas card was among the items featured in the “2013: The year in political ridiculousness” segment on the cable news show Sunday.
In the photo, the former Republican presidential candidate and his wife Ann, who are both white, sit in the center of their 22 grandchildren. Nestled on Mitt’s knee is one toddler grandson and on his other knee he holds baby Kieran James, the adopted infant son of Mitt’s son, Ben, and his wife, Andelyne. His adoption was announced in September.
The Romneys, who are devout Mormons, have regularly showcased their five adult sons and their ever-growing brood.
After the image flashed on the screen during the show, actress Pia Glenn broke out in song, singing, “One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just isn’t the same.”
“That little baby, front and center, would be the one,” said Glenn, who was among the four panel members who joined Harris-Perry for the segment.
The host called the baby “gorgeous” and revealed her pipe dream for 2040 would be the wedding between Kieran Romney and North West, the infant daughter of rapper Kanye West and celebutante Kim Kardashian.
“Could you imagine Kanye West and Mitt Romney as in-laws?” she said.
In 2040, Romney would be aged 93.
