Rick Santorum just keeps putting his foot in his mouth. Just a week after saying ““I do not want to make black people’s lives better by giving them somebody else’s money, I want to give them the opportunity to go out and earn the money,” Santorum is defending his racist comment for the second time. As you’ll recall, Santorum attempted to defend his comment first by claiming he said “blah people,” but Santorum is changing his story again.
According to the New York Times,
“He maintains that he did not say “black” people’s lives but rather stumbled verbally when he was trying to say “people’s lives” and uttered a short syllable that came out as “plives.””
Santorum made the claim while campaigning on Monday.
You’d think Santorum would learn to keep his mouth shut by now. But he insists on digging himself into a bigger hole. He clearly said “black people’s lives” on tape. The tape is so clear that it would stand up in a court of law. If Rick Santorum thinks he can convince the American people otherwise, he’s a fool.
