MSNBC's O'Donnell: 'Whiter Than White' Romney Tried To 'Rewrite Ethnicity'

Lawrence O’Donnell used his “Last Word” segment to attack Mitt Romney’s Mormon faith, family history and his race.

“Mitt Romney tried to rewrite himself today in a much more important way. He tried to rewrite who he is. I don’t mean rewrite himself from liberal to conservative, he’s already done that. This is something much more basic. Romney tried to rewrite his whiteness. He tried to rewrite his ethnicity. Now Romney is not just white, he’s whiter than white. So, the only direction he could go was something that required a little less sunscreen.”
