Killer Mike introduced Bernie Sanders at a rally at Morehouse. Part of his speech (it's only a few minutes, go on, give it a listen) was the following:
And then [HRC] get good. She have your own momma come to you, your momma sit down and say, "Well, you're a woman." But I talked to Jane Elliott a few weeks ago, and Jane said, "Michael, a uterus doesn't qualify you to be president of the United States. You have to be... you have to have policy that's reflective of social justice."Naturally part of this was immediately quoted out of context: "Killer Mike: 'a uterus doesn't qualify you to be president of the United States'!"
Killer Mike responded as expected [i.e. brilliantly] to critiques.
"Nor does having a penis?" Killer Mike: "I agree. Let's elect E Warren"
"He should have condemned the comment." Killer Mike: "being black ain't enuff to make u pres that why I don't vote Herman Caine. I cannot condemn"
But unfortunately Joan Walsh felt the need to drum up some rage and tweet [I cringe just having to read this again]:
Let's extend some kindness to Killer Mike, and ask why the @SenSanders campaign didn't prep him better, as it should surrogates.Wow. Joan. Seriously?
