I (hashtag) apologize. #MHPapology—

Snort! That’s right. MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry took to Twitter to “apologize” to the Romneys for the despicable mocking of their adopted grandson that took place during a panel on her show. Few bought her faux-pology and with good reason. Not the least of which was her use of a self-serving hashtag: #MHPApology.
Seriously, Ms. Harris-Perry?
Yes. Yes, she did. Once again, she is making herself the victim.
Twitter users rightly gave her the business while providing a Teachable Moment about how to actually apologize sincerely.
It’s totally cool, though. Now you can say whatever you want and just hashtag-apologize it!
Lame, Ms. Harris-Perry. As usual.
