Anthony from San Diego, California doesn’t care that Republicans painted the town red Tuesday night during midterm elections.
The self-identified Republican doesn’t give a damn that his Grand Ol’ Party took back the Senate after nearly a decade of Democratic control. Nope, he can’t just take that win quietly and revel in it. He still had to throw shots.
Thursday morning during C-SPAN’s Washington Journal, Anthony from San Diego called in to give host Steve Scully his take on the crimson wave riding the nation and how he thinks Republicans should proceed given their new power. Oh, did we mention he also called the President of the United States a n*gger?
“I would just like to say, that the Republicans — and I’m a Republican — please do not overreach,” the caller began. “I know they’re going to overreach but I’m telling you, if you advocate for the repeal of Obamacare and you get too extreme, then Hillary Clinton will be elected President in 2016.”
“This is about race,” he added. “The Republicans hate that nigger Obama.”
He just couldn’t give his two cents and keep it moving, huh?
Thankfully, Scully quickly intervened.
“Okay, I’m gonna stop you there,” Scully said. “We’re not gonna use that kind of language.”
“You can certainly make your point, but you cross the line when you use language like that,” he added. “And so to our viewers and listeners, I want to apologize.”
Anthony from San Diego, we’re not here for you. Or anyone else who thinks it’s OK to use racial epithets. Watch the clip above to hear Anthony’s bigoted statement.
