Comedian on infamous MSNBC Melissa Harris-Perry segment apologizes to the black baby

Seriously, apologizing to a baby? Sure, maybe the infant will get it when he’s off his bottle or in potty training.

The MSNBC Melissa Harris-Perry scandal involving her panel, Mitt Romney and his black adopted baby boy reached a new level of comedy late Monday when funnyman Dean Obeidallah apologized.

To the baby, that is.

On the Sunday segment, Obeidallah said the picture of the white Romneys with the black baby “really summed up the diversity of the Republican Party.”

He subsequently wrote CNN, saying, ”Occasionally my jokes have been known to ‘cross the line’ and I can assure you that in the future some of my jokes will do that again,” he said. “My joke on MHP was not intended in any way to mock the Romney family or the baby they adopted. Rather it was a joke about the lack of racial diversity that we see at the Republican National Convention. I apologize to the Romney family and especially the baby if any of them were offended by that joke.”

Hilarious. Especially the baby? He’s good.

On his list of “influences” are Richard Pryor and George Carlin.
