    That is pretty fascinating that Michelle Obama's actual staff made a call to have the guy fired. Somewhat amusing really when you think about it lol. Official white house staff were involved in the calling and firing of some gay little Mexican guy on a Mexican TV channel. Lol. I don't blame Michelle but it doesn't exactly look too good for the White House either in terms of 'Being above the Fray'.


    Michelle Obama got me fired: Disgraced Univision host claims First Lady's office intervened when she heard his racist Planet Of The Apes remark | Daily Mail Online

    I was notified verbally that due to a complaint from your office I was fired. An information leak from Univision executives, I was condemend in social media, trying to destroy my career in an unfair manner, without letting me know personally and without an investigation that would allow to clear up the situation.
    Again, I offer my humble forgiveness for the misinterpreation and I assume the responsibility.
    Yours respectfully,

    No wonder the right wingers are having so much trouble




    if they come from biden, hillary or obama they are not racist.

    if any non left winger disagrees with a liberal it's racist.

    did I get that right?

    And here I thought he was an American.

    My bad.

    Nope, not a shred of racism and race baiting on the left.

    If that's true it's pretty dumb.

    In my day, people were taught not to comment about physical features that people can't change or control. Race is one of those things....religion is not.

    Lol, is that a serious attempt at responding? Move along. I have no time for your cheap imitations of what a conservative sounds like.

    You don't know anything about me. Would you like to back up your contention with some references or do you just like to libel people you don't know for kicks?
