Clinton & DeBlasio make a

Given the prevalence of smartphones everywhere, it’s important to remember that anything you say in public can go out to everyone in the world, and lasts forever. Such was the case at this year’s New York City press dinner. During the event, Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio performed a skit meant to mock the latter’s late endorsement of the former.

During the skit, Clinton thanked de Blasio for the endorsement but quipped, “Took you long enough.” de Blasio joked back, “Sorry Hillary, I was running on C.P. time.” “C.P.” is short for “colored people”, thus the term is used as a racially charged insult that is meant to paint black people as often late or slow. The timing was not ideal for Clinton, who has come under some scrutiny from the black community in recent weeks for the “super predator” terminology used during Bill Clinton’s Presidency in tandem with harsher crime punishments.

The Clinton camp stepped away from responsibility for the skit, saying it was created by de Blasio. The de Blasio camp commented, "In an evening of satire, the only person this was meant to mock was the mayor himself, period. Certainly no one intended to offend anyone." A President Obama spokesman reiterated support for politicians, stating, “I can’t speak to any misguided attempts at humor. I can only speak to their commitment they have shown over the course of their career to justice and civil rights."
