U.S. Senate candidate Mark Kelly (D) apologized for an offensive comment he made two years ago while joking about the physiological changes his twin brother experienced after spending a year in space, the Arizona Republic reports.
Said Kelly: “I think the word hasn’t gotten out how bad it is for him. You know, it’s gotten so bad, that we recently had to release him back into the wild,” he continued to a laughing crowd.
He added: “He’s like halfway between an orangutan and a Howler Monkey. We’ve even changed his name to Rodrigo. He lives in the woods.”Save to Favorites
