Ann Coulter is dubious about MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry's tearful apology
to Mitt Romney's family over the weekend, saying it more likely was the result of "a heartfelt email from her boss."
"I think she was really crying after she just saw her fourth-quarter ratings at MSNBC," Coulter said Monday on Fox News Channel's "Hannity."
Harris-Perry offered the apology on her show Saturday for comments made by herself and her guests the previous Sunday. She previously apologized via Twitter.
Romney said Sunday
that he accepted the apology.
Harris-Perry and her panel were looking at a picture of 2012 Republican presidential nominee Romney, his wife, Ann Romey, and 21 grandchildren. Mitt Romney was holding his adopted infant grandson Kieran, who is black.
The panel made jokes about the picture's representing diversity in the Republican Party, and one sang, "One of these things is not like the other. One of these things just doesn't belong."
"This was making fun of a child for his skin color," Coulter said. "And this is coming from a network that said Mitt Romney's use of the word 'Chicago' was racist. They hadn't heard of Al Capone on MSNBC."
Coulter said racism in the United States was on the decline until President Barack Obama was elected, then it revived as liberals said criticism of Obama was racist.
"There's more cholera in America than there is racism," Coulter said.
