Rosie O’Donnell on the Today Show yesterday (Via Newsbusters):
GIFFORD: That we introduced AIDS into the black community?
O’DONNELL: But Kathy you know what it’s like for someone to pull one quote out of context for you. He was comparing it to when the government did give syphilis to black Americans for 40 years. What he was saying is in his history, in his genetic memory, he knows what it’s like for the government to infect his own people. Because he lived through those Tuskagee experiments. And that’s what he was talking about. You can’t sort of pull the quote. He didn’t just say, you know, “the government made AIDS.”
