A distasteful comment about Chelsea Clinton by an MSNBC anchor could imperil Hillary Rodham Clinton's participation in future presidential debates on the network, a Clinton spokesman said.
In a conference call with reporters, Clinton communications director Howard Wolfson on Friday excoriated MSNBC's David Shuster for suggesting the Clinton campaign had "pimped out" 27-year old Chelsea by having her place phone calls to celebrities and Democratic Party "superdelegates" on her mother's behalf.
Wolfson called Shuster's comment "beneath contempt" and disgusting.
Now Shuster did apologize, but has still been suspended. What about freedom of speech, and freedom of the press? Frankly I don't know why MSNBC is so upset at Shuster's comments. They've been in the tank for Obama for some time now.
While the comments about Chelsea may not be entirely fair (one must question why she is involved in mommy's campaign all of a sudden) ... clearly Hillary is the pimp of the Democrat party. I've never seen so many people get pimp slapped for falling out of line.
