You would think the GOP would get it by now. This comment coming from a man who wrote an op-ed entitled “Do Republicans have higher moral standards than Democrats?”

The controversy started when FITSNews, a local politics Website, obtained a screengrab of DePass’s comment on Facebook.

After an aide to state Attorney General Henry McMaster detailed the escape of the gorilla from Columbia’s Riverbanks Zoo, DePass responded with a comment: “I’m sure it’s just one of Michelle’s ancestors – probably harmless.”

DePass later admitted to WIS Newsthat he was referring to Michelle Obama and said, “I am as sorry as I can be if I offended anyone. The comment was clearly in jest.”

That’s what his mouth says, folks.
