MSNBC Contributor Donny Deutsch Calls GOP's Marco Rubio a "Coconut" on Joy Behar Show - Video 2/22/10
Here is video of Donny Deutsch of MSNBC and CNBC on the Joy Behar Show yesterday where he referred to GOP Florida U.S. Senate Candidate Marco Rubio as a "Coconut." Behar seemed startled and asked "What's his name?" Deutsch then called him by his actual name, "Marco Rubio."
The term is apparently used as a slur for a person who is "tan on the outside" and "white on the inside." He was slamming Rubio for his lack of experience:
"You almost need that blank piece of paper. That's the new model. Like, you know, this coconut Rubio down in Florida."
Deutsch ought to be ashamed of himself, and the politically correct folks at MSNBC should denounce him tonight. But don't hold your breath.
