MSNBC laughingstock Norah O'Donnell broke out the racial radar this morning by making some lame assertions that Newt Gingrich's criticism of Barack Obama was somehow racist. Yes, it's come to this in America. Criticizing a half-black man for doing a lousy job is racist in the eyes of far-left TV babbleheads.
MSNBC’s Norah O’Donnell on Friday went too far for even her colleagues at the liberal cable channel, receiving mockery for her assertion that Newt Gingrich made racially charged remarks about Barack Obama. At the Southern Republican Leadership Conference, Thursday, the former GOP leader commented that “shooting three-point shots may be clever.”Here's Gingrich at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans. The comments O'Donnell refers to aren't in this clip, but it's worth watching nonetheless. Maybe you can see if your racial decoder ring can find any ominous racism.
Speaking of the President’s basketball skills, Gingrich added, “But it doesn’t put anybody to work. And what we need is a president, not an athlete. We need somebody who actually focuses on getting people back to work.” After the clip was played, Morning Joe guest host O’Donnell lobbed her accusation at Gingrich.
“But I’m not sure what he means by this particular sound bite,” said O’Donnell. “And I think it’s open to some criticism because it suggests that the president is an athlete and some people may suggest, you know, because all black people are good athletes. I mean that’s what it sort of sounds like to me.”
The rest of the Morning Joe panel scoffed at O’Donnell’s claim, erupting in a flurry of dismissiveness
Thanks to Ace for the link. He notes the pasty-faced idiot from LGF ran with the same bilge as O'Donnell. Figures.
