Sarah Palin called MSNBC hosts and guests “despicable” for mocking Mitt Romney’s adopted infant grandson, Kieran Romney, who is black.
During a segment of “Melissa Harris-Perry” on Sunday, the panelists joked about a viral photo of the Romneys sitting in an idyllic setting surrounded by their 21 grandkids including little Kieran dressed in a pink onesie.
One of the panelists, actress Pia Glenn, sang “one of these things is not like the other,” while another joked that the photo was representative of the Republican Party’s lacking diversity.
In this historic White House photo, President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney shake hands in the Oval Office following their lunch on Nov. 29, 2012. There are reports that Romney is interested in seeking a position in the Obama administration (as a mole perhaps?). But so far the White House is mum on any job offers to Romney.
A woman enraged that her husband didn’t vote in last week’s presidential elections, ran over him with the family Jeep on Saturday.
Witnesses told police that Holly Solomon, of Scottsdale, Arizona, chased her husband around a parking lot before gunning the gas and hitting him as the Jeep jumped a curb.
Solomon apparently believed her husband’s vote was the deciding factor in the close race.
It seems that ABC News anchor Diane Sawyer got her drink on early in celebration of President Obama’s narrow win over Mitt Romney last night.
The usually stoic, straight-laced Sawyer spoke slowly, slurred her words, and appeared to swoon in euphoria under the hot studio lights. In other words, Sawyer was feeling no pain!
Sawyer’s Twitter followers were relentless in their tweets on her tipsy condition.
“OK,” she said at one point around 10 p.m. ET, “I wanna — can we have our music, because this is another big one here? Minnesota, we’re ready to project Minnesota, rrright now. … Well, tonight we know that President Barack has won Minnesota,” she said.
Socialite La La Anthony (wife of NY Knicks star Carmelo Anthony) and actor Michael Ealy campaigned for President Obama at Norfolk State University over the weekend. It’s crunch time for the Obama campaign. The incumbent president desperately needs to win Ohio and Iowa in order to stay in the White House. Polling of likely voters in both states shows Mr. Obama trailing Gov. Mitt Romney by a slight margin.
Sometimes children say the most inappropriate things. That is why you don’t push a microphone under a child’s nose at a political rally.
On Thursday, at a rally featuring Michelle Obama in Daytona, Florida, 9-year-old Brandon was asked why he wanted President Obama to win the hotly contested presidential election.
“Because if Mitt Romney win, we’ll be going back to the crop fields,” Brandon said. “We’ll be picking crops.”
What does a 9-year-old boy know about picking crops in 2012?
The Mitt Romney campaign continues to support Richard Mourdock’s run for the US Senate despite controversial statements he made during Tuesday’s final Senate debate.
Mourdock’s statement that pregnancy resulting from rape is [still] a gift from God, rankled women’s groups and bolstered anti-abortionists.
The Romney campaign told CNN reporter Jim Acosta that they would not pull an ad Romney made this week asking voters to “join me in supporting Richard Mourdock for U.S. Senate.”
“[w]e disagree on the policy regarding exceptions for rape and incest but still support him,” said a spokesman in statement released today.
