MSNBC Panel Makes Fun of Romney’s Black Adopted Grandchild

As part of its year-in-review show, MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry welcomed a panel of comedians to ridicule Mitt Romney, his family, and their adopted black grandson. One panelist poked fun at Kieran Romney’s appearance compared with the rest of the family by mockingly singing “One of These Things Is Not Like the Other” as the others laughed along.

Meanwhile, comedian Dean Obeidallah joked that the Romney family photo “sums up the diversity of the Republican party . . . they found the one black person.” Harris-Perry said she hopes Kieran will marry North West, the daughter of rapper Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, so that Mitt Romney and Kanye West will be forced to awkwardly interact.

The Romney family welcomed Kieran to the family earlier this year after he was adopted by Mitt’s son Ben and his wife Andelynne in September.

Look at FiveThirtyEight's polling roundup. Aside from a few high and low outliers, he leads the race by a solid 20 points (at least). Even ... Read More
