Saving Private Focker

It seems two Hollywood superstars have stepped in a sizeable pile of muck; Tom Hanks eight years ago at a fundraising auction for St. Matthew’s Parish School and Robert De Niro, just this week, at a Democratic fundraiser.

Both actors are in full damage control mode.

During the video unearthed by The Daily Caller, Hanks is seen onstage with an investment banker in a blackface skit and is heard saying, “Oh jeez…Ladies and gentlemen, a celebrity in our midst!  Who would have thought that Bill O’Reilly would join us?”

The shitstorm that followed prompted Hanks to offer an apology.  “In 2004, I was blindsided when one of the parents got up on the stage in a costume that was hideously offensive then and is hideously offensive now.  What is usually a night of food and drink for a good cause was, regrettably, marred by an appalling few moments.”

In addressing the issue more fully to The Daily Caller, our boy Tom, offered a belated apology to O’Reilly saying, "I used Bill O'Reilly as the punch line of an uncomfortable joke that was hardly funny and [was] unfair.  I have no reason to think Mr. O'Reilly would have found both the reason for the joke nor my use of it funny in any way."

In another example of Leftist raaaaacism, Robert De Niro on Wednesday, apologized for joking at a Democratic fundraiser with Michelle Obama about the possibility of having a "white first lady" at the White House after November's presidential elections. 

The Oscar-winning star of "The Godfather: Part II" and "Raging Bull" said he had intended no offense with the remark about the wives of Republican presidential contenders Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney.

He opened the fundraiser saying, “Callista Gingrich. Karen Santorum. Ann Romney. Now do you really think our country is ready for a white first lady?”

According to the report, the crowd of $5,000-a-plate donors waiting to hear from the nation’s first black first lady roared in approval, and De Niro finished: “Too soon, right?”

De Niro’s “the devil made me do it” statement:  "My remarks, although spoken with satirical jest, were not meant to offend or embarrass anyone—especially the first lady.”

So, my Photoshop™ software, having a mind of its own, whipped up this graphic of two stupid Hollywood idiots.  I would apologize for it, but why should I?  It was satirical jesting and it is meant to embarrass these towering examples of stupidity and Lefty raaaaacism.

Stupid is as stupid does.
