(THE HILL) Samuel L. Jackson on Monday tweeted it was “unfair” that Tropical Storm Isaac had spared the GOP convention in Tampa and appeared to be heading for New Orleans.
Jackson said in a profanity-filled tweet that he was “not understanding God’s plan” given the fact that the strorm was not disrupting the Republican gathering. “Unfair s—,” the Oscar-nominated actor known for his colorful language said on Twitter.
“GOP spared by Isaac! NOLA prolly f—– again!”
Less than a half-hour later, Jackson apologized for the earlier tweet, writing that it had stirred up a hornet’s nest. “Apologies to God, Tampa, da GOP& Isaac(sp)! Who played the Race card?!,” he said on Twitter.
Jackson isn’t the only one to issue strongly worded language questioning a link between politics and Isaac. Over the past few days, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh has suggested that serious warnings about tropical storm weather by the federal government was the Obama administration attempting to scuttle the Republican National Convention.
Earlier on Monday, MSNBC host Chris Matthews accused presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney and other Republicans of playing the race card against Obama.
