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

Double standard much?

Published

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.

Bill O’Reilly Brilliantly Explains Why 2020 Election Doesn’t Make Much Sense (Video)

You probably won’t find a better summarization.

Bill O’Reilly may not be a perfect person. But that is to be expected, considering he’s human. That being said, the man is very intelligent and well-informed (and his Killing series is just plain awesome). On Monday, Bill explained why the 2020 presidential election seems so funky to so many millions of Americans. Did you know, as O’Reilly points out, that no president in 150 years has lost a second term when they nabbed more votes than they did the first time around? Trump earned over 10 million more votes in 2020 than he did in 2016, but somehow he’s the one who can’t keep up with the trend – despite the massive rallies, both scheduled and impromptu, all over the nation??

There’s zero chance Joe Biden outperformed President Trump to the tune of 80 million total votes. Come on, man! The GOP needs to get to the bottom of this or risk going extinct.

GOP Senator Says Biden’s Pick for OMB, Neera Tanden, Has ‘Zero Chance of Being Confirmed’

Buh bye.

It is absolutely imperative that Republicans retain control of the Senate. Both upper chamber races in Georgia have the ability to make or break the country. Loeffler and Perdue must win. If they don’t, Democrats will have the House, Senate, and, possibly, the Executive Branch. If that happens, things will change fast – and not in a good way. From The Daily Wire: On Monday, former Vice President Joe Biden announced he had selected Neera Tanden, the president of The Center for American Progress and a close friend of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as his choice to head the White House Office of Management and Budget, eliciting criticism from both sides of the political aisle. Sen. John Cornyn, (R-TX) said Tanden “stands zero chance of being confirmed.” […] Tandem has also come under fire for her handling of sexual harassment claims at the Center for American Progress. Buzzfeed News reported in 2018 that two days after they had revealed allegations of sexual harassment and retaliation at the Center for American Progress, where Tanden served as president, Tanden “met with staff to restore confidence in the organization’s ability to handle the issue and ensure that employees feel safe. But during the meeting Wednesday afternoon, Tanden named the anonymous victim at the center that story — a revelation that a CAP spokesperson said was unintentional — and what began as a tense meeting became what three staffers in the room described as a textbook example of the organization’s failures to appropriately handle sexual harassment cases.” Check out some of these tweets… https://twitter.com/GarrettVentry/status/1333250823531470855?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1333250823531470855%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fso-much-for-unity-tom-cotton-rips-bidens-picks-to-staff-administration https://twitter.com/neeratanden/status/802605607081615360?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E802605607081615360%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fso-much-for-unity-tom-cotton-rips-bidens-picks-to-staff-administration https://twitter.com/neeratanden/status/959471674528878593?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E959471674528878593%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fso-much-for-unity-tom-cotton-rips-bidens-picks-to-staff-administration
