In it, but not of it. TPM DC
"Media update for the week: saw on the news this week the offspring of a donkey and a zebra, black and white legs, rest all donkey," Thompson wrote at the end of the newsletter. "Not sure why this is news: now if we can teach him to read a teleprompter, we could have two living creatures the media will fawn over that is part white part black and all a**!"
Thompson is referring to a baby zebra-donkey hybrid that was born at Mexico's Reynosa Zoo on Friday.
Thompson emailed TPM with the following statement:
I would like to offer my sincere apology to those who were offended, and I regret including this item in the newsletter. In the future, it most certainly won’t happen again.
