*Maine’s Governor Paul LePage on Friday apologized for his remark about out-of-state drug dealers impregnating “young white” girls, calling it a slip of the tongue and saying he didn’t mean to inject race into discussion of Maine’s heroin epidemic.

The Republican governor also blamed reporters for unfairly focusing on the slip-up in which he described the drug dealers as “guys with the name D-Money, Smoothie, Shifty” and added “half the time they impregnate a young white girl before they leave.”

“I was going impromptu, and my brain didn’t catch up to my mouth. Instead of ‘Maine women,’ I said ‘white women,'” LePage said, noting that Maine is among the nation’s whitest states.

He also chastised the assembled reporters, saying, “Get your heads out of the sand, please.” He added: “I probably couldn’t get so many of you here without saying something foolish.”

LePage is known for speaking his mind, and it sometimes gets him into trouble.

He said on the campaign trail that he’d tell President Barack Obama to “go to hell,” and soon after he was elected to his first term, he told the Portland chapter of the NAACP to “kiss my butt.” He previously likened the IRS to the Gestapo, called protesters “idiots” and said a political foe liked to “give it to the people without Vaseline.”



  1. This guy is really classy, isn’t he? What a white trash loser… Slip of the tongue my ass.

    How about we just tell it like it is, this butthole simply can’t contain his bigotry. It’s obvious that his constituents enjoy this racist pig’s antics…

  2. You lying backpedaling racist muthafucka. You know what you said, meant what you said from the core of your being and just wish you didn’t have to get caught and consequently retract.

  3. Typical, racist, mocking of black people by dumb ass yak,yak…

    Damn skunk actually thinks she’s fooling someone with her pretending to be black… You’re only jacking yourself off, skank… Donald Chump… Please…
