What is it about diverse Republican families which causes the left to short-circuit?
A writer for MTV News came under fire on Tuesday after joking that Sen. Jeff Sessions, the attorney general nominee, kidnapped an Asian child from a local Toys R Us to use as a prop at his Senate confirmation hearing.
“Sessions, sir, kindly return this Asian baby to the Toys ‘R’ Us you stole her from,” Ira Madison III, a cultural writer for MTV News, wrote in a now deleted tweet.
The child is Sessions’ biological granddaughter. His family had accompanied him to his confirmation hearing.
While I would ordinarily try to leave children out of a political controversy, I left this kid in…because cute!
In 2013, Melissa Harris-Perry used Mitt Romney’s grandchild as a butt of a joke in the same way.
Attention left-wing writers and pundits: Conservative white folks love their children and grandchildren. When I have grand kids, I won’t care if they’re gay, black, mixed race or liberal. Oh, maybe the liberal thing would cause a twinge. I’d get over it.
Just as long as they are not as stupid as Ira Madison III.
