Daily News columnist Linda Stasi is using the Roseanne Barr Excuse in her defense after publicly attacking Fox News star Kimberly Guilfoyle with a racial slur.
In her Tuesday column for the far-left Daily News, Stasi called on Fox News to “fire” Guilfoyle for dating Donald Trump Jr.
Fox Should Fire Reporter Kimberly Guilfoyle, Who Can’t Possibly Stay Neutral While Dating a Trump Kid Now that Kimberly Guilfoyle is reportedly having sleepovers with Donald Trump Jr., the Fredo Corleone of the Trump boys, while she’s reporting on him, his father, his father’s sex scandals, and the Mueller investigation, what Fox News — that fair and balanced network — should do is bust her down to courtroom reporter.
The other reason Stasi’s Roseanne Barr Excuse stretches credulity is based on the columnist’s admitted knowledge of Guilfoyle’s personal life.
Stasi spends a couple hundred words slashing Guilfoyle’s romantic life (which laughably boils down to OMG an attractive, successful single woman maybe dated that guy last year and is dating this guy now — that’s two guys in two years!
Absolutely no idea that Kimberly Guilfoyle is half Puerto Rican…and my column was in no way meant as a slur. Nonetheless I will change that reference online. I'm just surprised anyone would have assumed such a stereotype b/c someone is half-Latina. So sorry for misunderstanding
