But there’s a big difference between Lewis and Washington, and no, I don’t intend to use Lewis’s age (he’s 81) or the possibility that he could have just been punch-drunk after 18 hours of running the telethon as an excuse. I’m not offering any excuses for Lewis, who already said he shouldn’t have said what he said.
Now, I’m not sure if he was pointing to an actual boy or if he was just trying to be funny. If it was the latter, reasonable people didn’t get the joke.
…especially this one who’s already taken one previous bite from the “stupid apple” when he insulted female comedians years ago (look it up!)
