CNBC and MSNBC contributor Donny Deutsch joins his fellow traveling lefties, former major newspaper editors, Hollywoodites and other assorted racist “liberal progressives” and attacks Marco Rubio’s heritage:
CNBC and MSNBC contributor Donny Deutsch used racially charged language on Monday night, smearing Republican senatorial candidate Marco Rubio as a “coconut.” Deutsch appeared on HLN’s Joy Behar Show and used the word, which Urban Dictionary defines as a “person who is tan on the outside” and “white on the inside.” Rubio is the son of Cuban exiles.
It was only a matter of time.
Update: Deutsche responds, via Twitter:
UPDATE: 2010-02-23 18:20 Deutsch responded on his Twitter page: “I said ‘coconut’ meaning simple, goofy, bananas…wasn’t even aware it could be a racially charged word.”
Whew! I’m so glad he cleared that up for us! I really thought he was being demeaning. My bad.
