Former presidential nominee Mitt Romney accepted MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry’s tearful apology after she and her panelists mocked his adopted black grandson, Kieran Romney. He told Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that liberal TV hosts like Harris-Perry are welcome to make jabs at him, but going after children is “beyond the line,” Politico reports.
Romney said ”I think it’s a heartfelt apology, and I think for that reason we hold no ill will whatsoever.” So, can we put this to bed now? I am sure Melissa Harris-Perry has learned a hard lesson and won’t allow this to happen on her show again.
Mitt Romney said, ”We love this little guy [Kieran Romney] a great deal. He was an answer to prayers. We love that he’s part of our family.”"I recognize people make mistakes. The folks at MSNBC made a big mistake. They apologized for it. That’s all we can ask for. I’m going to move on from that. I’m sure they want to move on from that.”
