Listen: Obama Just Said A Stunning Racial Slur During An Interview, Massive Debate Ensues

President Obama said “n*****” on a podcast Sunday, leading to an argument as to whether he should be using the word at all.

Speaking to Marc Maron on The WTF Podcast released Monday, the two individuals got into a conversation on the issue of race in the United States. “The legacy of slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination in almost every institution of our lives, you know, that casts a long shadow, and that’s still part of our DNA that’s passed on,” Obama told Maron. “We’re not cured of it.”

“And it’s not just a matter of it not being polite to say ‘n*****’ in public,” the president continued. “That’s not the measure of whether racism still exists or not. It’s not just a matter of overt discrimination.”

There are actions that could be taken to make events like this less likely, and one of those actions we could take would be to enhance some basic, common-sense gun safety laws.

‘N-word’ has been trending on Twitter across the U.S. since the interview was released Monday, generating passionate thoughts on the issue, including from Piers Morgan, formerly of CNN:

Morgan’s words generated some mixed responses:

Embarrassing: Piers Morgan Just Received A Distinction That Is Any Celebrity’s Worst Nightmare

Twitter users, able to send messages to high-profile pages and respond directly to celebrity posts, are often exceptionally candid in expressing their disdain for notable personalities.

U.K. firm Demos recently seized on this phenomenon in conducting a study to find out which of the nation’s prominent citizens are the most hated. After poring over two million posts, The Sunday Times reported that the think tank awarded Piers Morgan with the dubious distinction.

The Brit’s foray into U.S. media included a transition from snarky reality show judge to an inauspicious stint as the host of his own CNN program. He was roundly criticized by Americans for interjecting his opinion on issues – primarily as an advocate for stricter gun control – in this country while maintaining his ties to his England.

As it turns out, though, his unpopularity is not confined to this side of the pond. Nearly nine percent of the tweets directed at Morgan are abusive, the study found, noting that the leftist mouthpiece’s willingness to lambaste others has likely contributed to his status as most hated user.

Compared to the least hated users, for whom negative sentiments comprised less than half a percent of all incoming tweets, the level of animosity many hold toward Morgan is clear. He seemed to embrace the status to some extent, however, offering a number of tweets apparently in response to the study’s results.

For good measure, he continued to liberally sprinkle anti-gun posts as per usual.

Anti-Gun Host Booted From CNN Promises He’s “Not Done” With NRA

After years of trying to convince Americans to accept his homeland’s dangerous anti-gun laws, U.K. native Piers Morgan finally received a clear message that his particular brand of activism is not particularly welcome on this side of the Atlantic.

His perpetually unpopular CNN program “Piers Morgan Live” was reportedly cancelled by the left-leaning news outlet, leading the host to admit his unhinged stance against firearms was the likely cause.

“Look,” he said in a recent New York Times interview, “I am a British guy debating American cultural issues, including guns, which has been very polarizing; and there is no doubt that there are many in the audience who are tired of me banging on about it.”

While Morgan attempted to save face by asserting he had been in talks with CNN boss Jeff Zucker “about different ways of using” him within the network, a report by The Wire hinted that there is simply no love lost by American audiences for the single-issue host.

“After trying to make it work and refusing to admit defeat for two years,” the article concludes, “CNN finally gave up.”

The network indicated the program’s final episode will likely air next month.

Based on principle, it must have been a difficult decision to cut ties with a man who espouses one of the left’s central tenets; however, from a business standpoint, it was an inevitable result. Morgan took over the coveted spot vacated by a retiring Larry King, only to usher in the network’s darkest days.

Despite the fact CNN is now a ubiquitous offering among cable providers, last month’s ratings numbers were the third-worst in its 34 year history.

Refusing to accept the fact that Americans – especially Second Amendment supporters – have no interest in his rants, Morgan declared his campaign against gun rights is not over. A pointed tweet appeared Monday on his official Twitter profile in which he threatened the NRA with the assertion he is “not done with you yet.”

 

While it is unclear what his next steps will be, there is no doubt his reception by most Americans will be as icy as it was during his failed attempt as a network news host.

Video: Trump Still Skeptical of Obama Birth Certificate

Jeff Poor, The Daily Caller

Now that he’s no longer interested in a run for the White House, at least for the time being, it would make sense for real estate mogul Donald Trump to drop the whole “birther controversy” subject, right?

But Trump isn’t. In an appearance on Wednesday’s “Piers Morgan Tonight” on CNN, Trump revisited the topic and refuted claims of racism. However, he added there are still some questions surrounding President Barack Obama’s birth certificate.

“The word racist has not been applied to me, I will tell you that,” Trump said. “But I was very proud of the job I did with respect to the birther issue, because I got Obama to do something which nobody else was able to get him to do. And there’s a real question as to why he took so long to do it. Maybe one of these days you’ll have to ask him why. And you have to check out that document very carefully.”
