So, Hillary Clinton, Bill deBlasio and actor Leslie Odom were in a comedy skit gone horribly wrong Saturday night.
The New York Times reported that “In less than three minutes, a comedy routine between Hillary Clinton and Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York managed to cause a storm of controversy over a racially charged joke.”
New York Magazine’s Rembert Browne asked: “Does your wife, Chirlane, know about this joke? Wait — no, you aren’t going to do the joke about … oh no.”
The skit took place on the heels of a whole week of raised eyebrows and rightful expressions of consternation and anger on the part of a deeply offended Black Lives Matter movement and their supporters for what can only be termed inappropriate outbursts by former president Bill Clinton:
Exactly whose sensibilities and judgment was it that following Bill Clinton’s performance last week with this makes sense?
While Bernie Sanders has been much maligned when it comes to a lot of things, he has never been quoted, much less caught on video, engaging in such disgraceful, entitled behavior.
UPDATE: Oh, and Secretary Clinton, in true friend fashion, threw Mayor de Blasio under the bus when she blamed the skit idea on him after it blew up in both their faces. Classy.
When it comes to questionable judgment on race, how much more are we going to tolerate from the Clintons?
