    Obama already apologized to Harambe's widows. They hooted and threw feces at him so we know they accepted.

    I love the smell of satire in the morning. It smells like... a dead gorilla.

    This is false. There was a disinformation campaign by the zoo to discredit his surfing skills. You've apparently accepted this propaganda as fact.

    Baseless speculation. He was clearly circumcised.

    No. I don't think so.

    Look, its well within the realm of possibility that anybody, no matter how politically astute; quick on their feet; and tuned into the facts and issues of the day, could end up saying something stupid.

    But its simply not in Hillary Clinton's playbook, or interests, to say something like that. And frankly, at this stage of the campaign, it makes zero political sense for her to interject racism as a subject into the public discourse.

    Why? Because demographically at least, the former Secretary of State has already got the African-American vote sewn up. She doesn't need to win thousands of African-American voters, concerned about the vestiges of structural racism, away from Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders.

    More to the point, bringing up the subject of racism (and especially in such an patently offensive manner) would only hurt her. She'd alienate the working-class white voters she's trying to woo - while horribly offending the African-Americans who, so far at least, have been among her biggest supporters.

    Say what you like about Hillary Clinton, but she's not an idiot. If anything, her statements and answers sometimes seem too scripted and formulated. She's lived too long at the center of public attention to make a mistake that bad.

    For better or worse, I have to say I find the prospect of a politician who speaks carefully about sensitive topics to be far more appealing than the alternative.

    Well considering she'd keep classified emails on a personal server shows the extent of her decision making skills. If you ask me that's a pretty bad mistake.

    It's not their fault. They're born that way.

    Honestly... I'm actually surprised no candidate or high profile personality has made such comments based on crazy things that can fall out of their mouths.
