Andrea Mitchell Runs Defense for Obama, Derrick Bell
Andre Mitchell was quick to defend President Obama and Derrick Bell from the emerging story stemming from Breitbart.com's Harvard footage. In the video, a young Barack Obama is seen lavishing praise upon Derrick Bell, known as a campus radical, before a crowd of students.
"This is classic Obama," Mitchell gushed.
Speaking of the context in which Obama is seen:
" … this is not some firebrand radical in the context of the times. He was the head of the law review and speaking out on behalf of a very distinguished professor."
"Distinguished," yes. Distinguished in what Bell believed.
