Bless his precious heart. MSNBC’s Touré is all worked up about his inclusion in James O’Keefe’s hilarious new video.
Touré was among the gun-grabbing journalists O’Keefe caught declining to display a sign advertising their homes as “proudly gun free.” After a string of uhs and ums, Touré brushed off the Project Veritas crew posing as “Citizens Against Senseless Violence.”
He explained that he’d have to check with his neighbors since he wasn’t sure how they’d feel.

O’Keefe’s followers didn’t let Touré’s tweet slide either.
Duh. Quoting a liberal is totally disrespectful. Just ask Ellen Barkin!
