Tearful Melissa Harris-Perry addresses mockery of Romney baby [video]

, , , , , , , , ,

http://twitter.com/#!/dorseyshaw/status/419484098898321408 Last weekend, Melissa Harris-Perry hosted a despicable MSNBC panel that mocked Mitt Romney’s adopted black grandson. Transracial adoption? Hi-freaking-larious, according to her panel. Her apology tweets — complete with self-serving hashtag — struck many as a faux-pology. So today, a choked-up Harris-Perry issued an on-air apology to the Romney family and “other families formed through transracial adoption.” http://twitter.com/#!/moorehn/status/419483990442381312 […]
