CLASS V. TRASH: Romney Responds To MSNBC Attack On His Grandchild

Published on January 7, 2014

Mitt Romney addressed the controversial mocking directed at his adopted African American grandson, Kieran, by MSNBC.

Melissa Harris-Perry has since apologized for the segment, in which she and a panel used the Romney child to make fun of the lack of diversity in the Republican Party.

Today on Fox News Sunday, Romney told Chris Wallace, “We love this little guy a great deal. He was an answer to prayer. And we love that he’s part of our family.”

Romney accepted Harris-Perry’s apology, saying, “The folks at MSNBC made a big mistake and they’ve apologized for it, and that’s all you can ask for. I’m going to move on from that; I’m sure they want to move on from it. Look, I’ve made plenty of mistakes myself and they’ve apologized for this and I think we can go on from there.”
