It Took Newsweek Three Days and a Staff Revolt to Apologize for Kamala Harris Birtherism Op-Ed
Tom Williams/GettyEditors and executives at Newsweek, a formerly prestigious and popular magazine that in recent years has suffered from self-inflicted wounds and even a criminal investigation of its business practices, are once again digging themselves out of a public relations hole.

Newsweek Editor-in-Chief Nancy Cooper and the magazine's recently-hired opinion editor, Trump-backing conservative activist and attorney Josh Hammer, apologized on Friday after nearly a week of defending a right-wing law professor's op-ed questioning Sen.

No surprise he's supporting an affirmative action president."

Shapiro's performative rant about "WAP," the new single by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion (translating to "Wet-Ass Pussy"), went viral this week, owing to the diminutive right-wing pundit reciting the lyrics in his self-described "nasal whine of a voice." 

After playing footage of Shapiro's stunt, Desus & Mero couldn't contain their laughter.
