Oops, there’s been another GOP bigot eruption. This time, it’s Michelle Obama who has been called an ape:
A state Republican activist has admitted to and apologized for calling a gorilla that escaped from the Riverbanks Zoo Friday an “ancestor” of First Lady Michelle Obama….
Longtime SCGOP activist and former state Senate candidate Rusty DePass responded with the comment, “I’m sure it’s just one of Michelle’s ancestors – probably harmless.”
DePass told WIS News 10 he was talking about First Lady Michelle Obama….
DePass took his apology a bit further. He also said, “The comment was hers. Not mine,” saying the first lady made statements in the media recently saying we are all descendents of apes.
But an Internet search for those comments turned up no news articles of the like.
Another ringing success for the Republican African-American voter outreach program.
