Here’s the transcript:
“And what do the Republicans thinking about? They’re not thinking about their next-door neighbor. They’re just thinking about how much this is going to cost. President Obama is going to be visiting Joplin, Mo., on Sunday but you know what they’re talking about, like this right-wing slut, what’s her name?, Laura Ingraham? Yeah, she’s a talk slut. You see, she was, back in the day, praising President Reagan when he was drinking a beer overseas. But now that Obama’s doing it, they’re working him over.”
Schultz seems angry about Ingraham’s comments on Fox that it may not have been the greatest decision for Obama to be seen drinking beer in Ireland as Joplin, MO tried to pick up the pieces after a devastating tornado.
But as Mediaite’s Jon Bershad points out, the reasoning doesn’t really matter:
Look, if you don’t agree with something the woman says, you can feel free to call her an “idiot” or a “jerk” or a “big, stupid poop-face.” Whatever you want. Just don’t call her a slut, you big, stupid poop-face!
The only way he can prove his sincerity is to start preaching that straight white women do not have targets on their backs and it is time to stop attacking them! He should be preaching about the double standard ie how he should have been fired as was Imus. But since Laura is a white conservative he just gets a week off without pay!
UPDATE: Schultz has been suspended for one week without pay.
Meanwhile: While the Joplin folks were searching for bodies of their babies and looking for the Red Cross to get there with a cup of coffee and a sandwich- Obama was yukkin it up in Ireland and having State dinners with the Queen. Oh and on May 25th the day Shultz let us know Obama would arrive the following Sunday – a week after the storm comment exploded:
“It will be lobster ravioli and aged Highlands beef tonight as President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama repay Queen Elizabeth II after last night’s state dinner at Buckingham Palace. The Obamas host the queen at Winfield House, the home of the U.S. ambassador to Britain — and not just the queen. Among those on the guest list: actors Tom Hanks and Colin Firth, author J.K. Rowling and soccer star David Beckham. Also on the menu: crushed jersey royals, asparagus and minted broad beans. The dessert: pecan pie and brandy ice cream. After the meal, the guests will be entertained by Tony Award-winning actress and singer Kristin Chenoweth.
Sure he will get there a week after the fact but he has no shame at all partying while the TORNADOs churn on and on and on across our country!
