Don’t look for Morgan Freeman at any Tea Party events anytime soon. Unless he’s there to protest them.
The “Invictus” star condemns the Tea Party political movement as “a racist thing” for trying to oust Pres. Barack Obama from office on Friday’s edition of “Piers Morgan Tonight.”
“Their stated policy, publicly stated, is to do whatever it takes to see to it that Obama only serves one term,” Freeman noted. “What underlines that? ‘Screw the country. We’re going to whatever we can to get this black man outta here.”‘
Dismissing Morgan’s suggestion that the Tea Party’s motivations might be merely political, Freeman asserted, “It is a racist thing.”
