    Newt Gingrich Calls Robert De Niro First Lady Comments 'Inexcusable'


    Newt is really getting desperate for attention at this point. Of course you can do the "what if it had been said about a black woman?" thing, and you'd be right, but in the context it seems like a real stretch to take serious offense at this lame joke by a lefty actor.

    Of course it does, because you are a lefty who excuses anything lefties do.

    De Niro did NOT say "another"; he said "a". OBVIOUS joke. As in, is America ready for a black President.

    wat

    I'm pretty sure TS is a rational conservative. Newt is just being Newt and trying to get some free airtime pandering to the lowest common denominator of the GOP.

    btw De Nerio's wife is black so that makes it actually kinda funny imo. Maybe Newt should've pointed that out and had a laugh about jungle fever or something. And before you accuse me of being a lefty, I'd like to point out that TS is already convinced I'm a racist so whatevs.
