CNN’s Don Lemon was hosting Marc Lamont Hill when they started talking about MSNBC’s joke about Mitt Romney’s adopted black grand-daughter. : Lemon was not impressed:
Lemon argued that there would have been plenty of outrage if Fox News hosts had put on the exact same segment and even slammed MSNBC as an echo chamber that doesn’t allow any kind of diversity in opinion.
“If someone on Fox [said], ‘one of these things is not like the other,’ to a black baby in a white family, what do you think would happen?” Lemon asked Marc Lamont Hill.
Hill argued that the MSNBC panel didn’t make fun the baby, but rather Romney and the Republican Party. He said it wasn’t the best joke, but also wasn’t “inappropriate.”
Lemon then set his sights on MSNBC as a network, saying former Mitt Romney adviser Stuart Stevens had a point when he called the network “a club where the smug go to exchange hateful opinions and reassure each other it’s acceptable.”
MSNBC is good for one thing. It gets liberals comfortable so they say things they normally wouldn’t say in front of strangers, like what you saw when they all started mocking Romney’s family.
Other than that, it’s a complete waste of electricity.
