Here we are at an Alabama book signing, where Naomi was more interested in playing with Tripp than posing for a photo!
I’ve met many of you at book signings I’ve done with my co-writer Nancy French. A few months ago, I was in Washington, DC where we were signing copies of “Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far.” (Have you bought your copy?!) It just so happened that CPAC was going on down the street, so we also attended some of those functions.
My mom delivered an amazing speech, Occupy Wall Street tried to interrupt her talk, and reporters were everywhere. (In other words, it was a lot of fun!) However, the Huffington Post posted video of Nancy and her family between the speeches. Immediately, there were over a thousand very hateful comments. Why?
Nancy and her husband David have three kids – two who are her biological kids and one she adopted from Ethiopia. Believe it or not, the liberal HuffPo readers were angry that Nancy – a Republican – would raise a black child.
