Video: Melissa Harris-Perry’s tearful apology to Romney and other adoptive families

posted at 11:31 am on January 4, 2014 by Ed Morrissey

Melissa Harris-Perry started off her show on MSNBC this morning with an apology to Mitt Romney and his family for targeting his grandson Kieran for ridicule as a proxy for the GOP. Unlike her Twitter apology, with a self-referential hashtag, this apology took place on an equal platform with the insult — and got Harris-Perry emotional when also apologizing explicitly to families with trans-racial adoption:

Showing the photo in that context, that segment, was poor judgment. so without reservation or qualification, I apologize to the Romney family. Adults who enter into public life, implicitly consent to having less privacy, but their families, especially their children, should not be treated callously or thoughtlessly. My intention was not malicious, but I broke the ground rule that families are off-limits. For that I am sorry.

BuzzFeed’s Dorsey Shaw notes that Mitt Romney is scheduled to appear on Fox News Sunday, and suggests that he will respond to Harris-Perry at that time. I’d be surprised, though, if the normally-gracious Romney has anything more to say about it than an acceptance of this apology today. This is the kind of moment most people would do best to rise above, rather than slug it out with their families in the crossfire.

This seems much more genuine and sincere than the Twitter effort from Harris-Perry, and more appropriate. If Romney doesn’t want to keep this alive, I see no particular reason for anyone else to do so. That’s not to say that it should be forgotten entirely, especially in the context of MSNBC’s editorial choices of late, but it’s a good point for everyone to leave this specific incident in the rear-view mirror.

The Romney family is free to forgive her.

You KNOW she was taken to task in the principles office for it. The crocodile tears were just so she could keep her crap going til the next slur.

This is the kind of moment most people would do best to rise above, rather than slug it out with their families in the crossfire.

When asked, Romney should respond, “Who’s Melissa Harris-Perry?”

And after Wallace digs further, Romney should say, “Chris, you’re describing the ridicule of one of my son’s children. If Melissa Harris-Perry feels the need to apologize, she needs to pick up the phone or meet with my son and his wife and so. This is one of the country’s finest public policy Sunday shows, and I’m not here to discuss the an insignificant MSNBC show hosted by a woman of no consequence to me and my family.”

cmsinaz on January 4, 2014 at 11:44 AM

I have no doubt that she is sincerely sorry, right up until the next time she makes some lousy stupid comment

lahlon on January 4, 2014 at 11:44 AM

And remember…this wasn’t an off-the-cuff comment. This was planned. It was designed to be part of the show. Producers were involved in this.

No. A stupid apology isn’t enough.

hillsoftx on January 4, 2014 at 11:45 AM

This is not an apology. She can’t take her heart felt words back!
The only reason she might have a tear is because some of her buddies, who are black, who are black and married to white counter parts with biracial offspring, or who are white with adopted black babies, are coming down on her.
She is a racist in the most awful terms. She is biracial and is self hating mixed breed! Not black, not white, and she hates being who she is. I’ll bet she hates the two people who made her that way.
She is a nasty angry woman who’s words were passionately heart felt and she can’t take them back with her so called apologies1
She needs to shut up and see a shrink!
Then she needs to apologize to her parents!

Delsa on January 4, 2014 at 11:46 AM

This seems much more genuine and sincere than the Twitter effort from Harris-Perry, and more appropriate.

As a Father of a “trans-racial adoption” family, (whatever the Hell that silly, leftist, politically-forced-correct term means) let me say;

Your tears of apology mean sh*t to me, you shrill, lisping, leftist, psychotic little bag of hate. You want to save face, and your ass, nothing more. Do the world a favor; Go away. Forever.

The Romney family can forgive you all they want. I know who you are. And you are evil.

I would rather you had apologized for implying that my Daughter belongs to the State. But that doesn’t seem to bother you much.

Evil.

a5minmajor on January 4, 2014 at 11:51 AM

No dice, “I feel bad for what I said/did,” is only the first part of repentance. The second is atonement. An actual act, not words.
When I see some actual act from her to express her remorse, then I’ll believe she is penitent, and worth of redemption.
Until then, she is a vile racist who was so blinded by her hatred of Republicans that she tried to make fun of a child on national television, and should be shunned and driven out of society.

LincolntheHun on January 4, 2014 at 11:51 AM

People on the left were critical of this episode. If she could have gotten away with her vileness, I don’t believe she would be apologizing.

birdwatcher on January 4, 2014 at 11:51 AM

I never believe anything a liberal pundit says because they HATE conservatives almost as much as they hate freedom. No matter what she says, she still believes her first opinion, and still hates the Romney’s and their conservatism.

BoomJunkie on January 4, 2014 at 11:52 AM

The only thing she is sorry for is that she revealed too much of her heart on TV.
Her panel that day were obviously very comfortable picking on the Romneys for no other reason than race baiting.

Who buys ad time on her show?

BuckeyeSam on January 4, 2014 at 12:01 PM

OK, that sounds like a real apology. But it doesn’t sounds like she’s had a change of heart, she still doesn’t recognize what snickering at a conservative multi-racial family reveals about her own prejudices and assumptions. She’s just saying she was impolite, not that she was wrong.

But asking a liberal to contemplate their own nature is asking too much, I suppose. If they could do that, they wouldn’t be liberals.

Socratease on January 4, 2014 at 12:03 PM

I believe her, and I accept the apology.
Alana on January 4, 2014 at 11:49 AM

Uh, I don’t see how you could accept it since your family was not the one she attacked.

Akzed on January 4, 2014 at 12:03 PM

Tolerant high-IQ Democrat posting at BuzzFeed sez:

Good for her. Melissa Harris-Perry understands that while she has the right to say what she wants, said right doesn’t mean she’s immune to criticism. She owned up like an adult and apologized.

I would like to see people like Phil Robertson do the same, but unfortunately their words do not come from a place of comedy, rather a place of illogical, deep-rooted hatred.

And another, from another O’bama Cultist:

That, my friends, is what an apology looks, and sounds like

And from a O’Female in academe:

Very nice of her but knowing MSNBC she’ll still get her ass canned. That’s the way things, and heads, roll at MSNBC. No apology is good enough, and the Repugs win again. She’ll be gone soon. Too bad.

But some sanity does exist in the BuzzFeed comments:

She read that script very well, good for her. I just wonder who sliced the onion and rolled it out onto the set?

Romney could use the opportunity to highlight the hypocrisy of the left; imposing standards on conservatives they feel free to violate themselves. But, as others have said, he’ll probably just be gracious and move on.

And that’s a problem in general. The left pushes and pushes, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t, but they keep pushing. I don’t see many conservatives in the public eye doing the same.

MHP and that Georgetown clown are two arguments for shutting down all multicultural (or whatever) studies programs at colleges nationwide. At public colleges, they’re a waste of taxpayer money. At private colleges, they’re a waste of donor money. And, in either case, they’re a waste of tuition money.

BuckeyeSam on January 4, 2014 at 12:18 PM

She’s not sorry. She’s sorry her little skit didn’t go over well, unexpectedly, because she lives in such a hate filled bubble that she could imagine it not going over well.

And the real issue, is that she exposed how she really feels, what she really thinks, in her little skit.

“Liberalism”, it’s ugly.

KMC1 on January 4, 2014 at 12:18 PM

Harris-Perry’s tearful apology…

No. Do not make an apology, Harris-Perry.

Instead, make an admission.

Admit that you are a hater.

Go on, do it. Confess that you are driven by seething, irrational hate.

Don’t have the guts to admit it? Here, I’ll do it for you:

“Hi, I’m Melissa Harris-Perry. I am a hater.

“Worse, I’m a self-loathing hater. I was raised by white Mormons, just like Mitt Romney’s grandchild.”

“My hate is so pervasive and encompassing that I realize now that I have reached the point of needing professional help in dealing with it.

“I wish I could admit that conservatives are decent, kind, loving people. But right now, without benefit of having had professional help, I cannot make such an admission. I am far too sick due to my hate.

“But there is hope for me. I believe that hate makes me unfit to hold the position of public trust that I now occupy. Therefore, I, Melissa Harris-Perry, will voluntarily quit my job, retire from public view, and enter a convent, where I will live out the remainder of my years in contemplative penitence and do my best to stop being a hater.”

Should we expect a WH summit at which MHP and Romney’s son and daughter-in-law wear tampon earrings?

Stop it with the prefix “trans” already.

We get it. You’re “creating language” as a way to normalize transsexualism.

Good gawd, I’ve been onto this tactic since ’09.

As for Mitt, he’ll accept the apology.

But he better nail MSNBC. He better point out how many people this had to get through.

My intention was not malicious

ma·li·cious
məˈliSHəs/
adjective
adjective: malicious

1. characterized by malice; intending or intended to do harm.

As you can see, Comrade Harris-Perry, it most certainly was malicious, whatever in the world was your intention if it was not to do harm in some way to a person you disagree with politically? And, until you admit it you haven’t apologized for anything.

(Parenthetically, no, this conservative, at least, “won’t share that view” until she does admit it.)

I am sorry my only choice is Comcast! I’d dump them in a nanosecond!

That’s what you get for listening to Jesse Jackson, instead of reading The Book.

This is the kind of moment most people would do best to rise above, rather than slug it out with their families in the crossfire.

nice shot at a certain half-term governor….
