Al Roker Catches Flack for Dressing as White Man for Halloween. Take a Look at His Response.

Double standard much?

Published

on

Remember last week when NBC host Megyn Kelly got thoroughly destroyed on air for making comments about folks using blackface as part of their Halloween costumes? Apparently that’s a standard that only applies to white people, as an incident from “Today” show weatherman Al Roker clearly illustrates.

Roker dressed up as Back to the Future character Doc Brown, a white man, and the irony of the costume choice was not at all lost on an audience that is fresh off the Kelly incident. In fact, Roker caught significant pushback for it, but rather than apologize, like Kelly did, he’s doubling down on his costume.

Some social media users asked why it was all right for him to dress up as a Caucasian character, while NBC canceled his colleague Megyn Kelly’s show after her controversial blackface comments.

“I’m going to say this one last time, but the folks who get it, understand and the ones who DON’T, won’t,” Roker tweeted to explain why his ‘80s-themed costume was not an example of whiteface.

“I can be Doc Brown, and I wear the outfit and wig and not change my skin color if you’re white, you can be President Obama if you want. Just don’t color your skin!”

Accompanied by fellow meteorologist Dylan Dreyer, who dressed up as Marty McFly, Roker wore a white wig and white overalls – but didn’t alter the color of his face in his portrayal of Christopher Lloyd’s character.

Roker himself hammered on Kelly after the incident occurred stating that she not only owed her coworkers an apology for her comment, but “folks of color around the country” too.

“The fact is, while she apologized to the (NBC) staff, she owes a bigger apology to folks of color around the country,” Roker said on the air. “This is a history going back to the 1830s minstrel shows to demean and denigrate a race. It wasn’t right.”

Despite her apology, Kelly’s show was cancelled, making her the latest of a long string of public figures who have had their careers ruined by making a simple comment that goes against the oversensitive political correctness running through America.

BOMBSHELL: Report Claims Ukraine Colluded With Hillary Campaign to Defeat Trump

How about them apples?

All we hear about from the left is Russia, Russia, Russia. And yet, years later, there is still zero proof the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016. However, the evidence against the Hillary Clinton campaign continues to mount. Now, this… From The Hill: Ukraine’s top prosecutor divulged in an interview aired Wednesday on Hill.TV that he has opened an investigation into whether his country’s law enforcement apparatus intentionally leaked financial records during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign about then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort in an effort to sway the election in favor of Hillary Clinton. The leak of the so-called “black ledger” files to U.S. media prompted Manafort’s resignation from the Trump campaign and gave rise to one of the key allegations in the Russia collusion probe that has dogged Trump for the last two and a half years. Ukraine Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko’s probe was prompted by a Ukrainian parliamentarian’s release of a tape recording purporting to quote a top law enforcement official as saying his agency leaked the Manafort financial records to help Clinton’s campaign. Well, that seems like kind of a problem, huh? Will the mainstream media care to report?? The Hillary Clinton campaign has seemingly been routinely caught working with outside sources to gain insight on Trump. Why is there no media coverage on that angle? Why such hypocrisy? Why such a double standard? Those were rhetorical. Now, it seems as though a foreign government official once offered the Hillary campaign information on then-candidate Donald Trump. From American Mirror: A high-ranking member in the Verkohvna Rada of Ukraine is accusing the head of the country’s anti-corruption bureau of leaking information about associates of Donald Trump to the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2016, according to the television station 112 UA.

New Zealand Prime Minister Just Banned ‘Semi-Automatic’ Guns After Mosque Shooting

Liberals will have a field day…

50 people were killed after a man opened fire at a mosque in New Zealand. It was a terrible tragedy that the far-left mainstream media has decided to link to President Trump, because, of course. Now, the prime minister of the country has decided to ban “military-style semi-automatic” weapons. From Fox News: New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Thursday announced the country was immediately banning “military-style semi-automatic weapons” after last week’s attack that killed 50 people at two mosques. Ardern noted, “As I’ve said, what we’ve done here is taken out the guns out of circulation that are most critical to be addressed urgently and that’s what we’ve announced, with essentially almost immediate effect.” Ardern added: “There is more to be done and tranche two will look at issues around licensing, issues around registration, issues around storage. There are a range of other amendments that we believe do need to be made and that will be the second tranche of reforms yet to come.” This is clearly an impulsive move from the New Zealand government. Liberals will be elated. Democrats love them some “sanctuary cities” for people who aren’t supposed to be in the country. Now, some proud American sheriffs are set to make their counties sanctuaries for gun owners in order to preserve their citizens’ Second Amendment rights. Here are the details… From Reuters: A rapidly growing number of counties in at least four states are declaring themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries, refusing to enforce gun-control laws that they consider to be infringements on the U.S. constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Organizers of the pro-gun sanctuaries admit they took the idea from liberals who have created immigration sanctuaries across the United States where local officials defy the Trump administration’s efforts to enforce tougher immigration laws. Now local…
