Clyburn: 99% of Americans Would Agree Obama Using N-Word ‘Appropriate’

Monday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) reacted to the news that President Barack Obama used the “N-word” on a podcast,and said, “Ninety-five percent of the American people, if not 99 percent, would agree that what he said was appropriate.”

Clyburn said, “I think in that instance, President Obama was being the professor that he used to be before he became United States senator. I used to teach history and I remember using that word in the classroom when I was trying to teach. I can still remember the young lady who got so upset when I used that word one time in trying to make a point. I never will forget how hurt she was. So I never used the word again. Though I was only trying to make a point in teaching a history lesson, an event that was in Charleston, South Carolina. So I know what the president was doing.”
