Ann Coulter Calls Melissa Harris-Perry MSNBC's 'Token' African-American
Ann Coulter called Melissa Harris-Perry MSNBC's "token" African-American on Monday, in response to the host's apology to the Romney family.
Harris-Perry came under fire recently for joking about Mitt Romney's adopted grandson Kieran being the only black person in a photo of the Romney family. She later apologized for the comments on-air, tearing up, and in a statement online.
Coulter and Sean Hannity were not having it on Monday night. "It's particularly good having Melissa Harris-Perry of all people making fun of a black child in the Romney family as a token," Coulter told Hannity. "What does she think she is at MSNBC?"
Her statement seemed to surprise Hannity, who disagreed. "Why would you say that?" he asked, adding that there are "plenty" of black Americans, including Al Sharpton, at MSNBC.
