MSNBC host Martin Bashir is being forced to retract statements he said about former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
Daily News reports that Bashir bashed Palin after she equated the U.S. deficit to slavery during his MSNBC show. The host said on Friday that the former Alaska governor should be punished like a slave by having to eat sh*t for her words. He took back his comments on Monday, saying that they were “wholly unacceptable… neither accurate, nor fair.”
Palin’s statement discussed the nation’s deficit and talked about how Americans are taking money from the children and borrowing from China. “When that money comes due and — this isn’t racist, so try it, try it anyway, this isn’t racist — but it’s going to be like slavery when that note is due,” Palin added. “Right? We are going to be beholden to a foreign master.”
