In a “Photos of the Year” segment of MSNBC’s “Melissa Harris-Perry” program on Sunday, several members of the host’s panel decided to poke fun at former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his adopted black grandson.

Miss Harris-Perry threw up a photo of Mr. Romney surrounded by his entire family, all of whom are white, except for baby Kieran, who was introduced to the Romney family in September. Miss Harris-Perry then asked her panel to caption the photo, the Right Scoop first reported.

Actress Pia Glenn can be heard off-camera singing, “One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just isn’t the same.”

The host then mused at the possibility of a marriage between Kieran Romney and North West — child of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

“Can you imagine Mitt Romney and Kanye West as in-laws?” she asked.

“I think this picture is great,” comedian Dean Obeidallah chimed in. “It really sums up the diversity of the Republican party and the RNC, where they have the whole convention and they find the one black person.”
