Newt Gingrich is demanding that President Obama apologize for Robert DeNiro’s racist comments he made while co-hosting a fund raising event. Here’s part of the article:
Newt Gingrich wants President Obama to apologize for a joke that Robert De Niro made at a campaign event Monday night.
“What De Niro said last night was inexcusable and the president should apologize for him,” Gingrich told supporters in Shreveport, Louisiana, according to CNN. “It was at an Obama fundraiser, it is exactly wrong, it divides the country.”
De Niro co-hosted the event with Michelle Obama at one of his New York City restaurants, and before the First Lady was introduced he made a quip about the GOP candidates’ wives.
“Callista Gingrich. Karen Santorum. Ann Romney. Now do you really think our country is ready for a white First Lady?” he asked the crowd. “Too soon, right?”
Newt Gingrich is an idiot.
It’s obviously a joke, and a pretty funny one at that. People take shit too seriously.
Then again, rich white women have been repressed for so long, I can see how that might have touched a few nerves.
There is nothing wrong, in my humble opinion, with race jokes .. as long as the intent is in humor and not from a place of hatred in your heart.
I have friends of all races. I’ve even dated a half Korean girl, and she was pretty cool.
So I have no problem saying …
Macy’s new gift baskets for black people are once again in stock.
See? It’s just a joke.
Hurry while supplies last.
