Progressive New York Mayor de Blasio Makes Joke About “Colored People Time”

[display_video video_url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S6eLToYV1Yk]

During an annual “Inner Circle” dinner, New York mayor Bill de Blasio made a joke about being on “CP time” during a comedy skit in which he performed alongside Hillary Clinton and Hamilton’s  Leslie Odom Jr.

RawStory reports:

Clinton poked fun at de Blasio for his endorsement coming a little late in the game for Clinton’s taste. “I just have to say thanks for the endorsement, Bill. Took you long enough,” she said to laughter.

 

“Sorry Hillary, I was running on C.P. time,” de Blasio responded to a mixture of chuckles and gasps. CPT is known as “colored people time” the stereotype that African Americans generally tell as a reason for being late to an event or a traditionally black event not beginning on time.

But don’t worry, sensitive individuals! Mrs. Clinton quickly defended him saying he was referring to “cautious politician time.” Because, ya know, that’s a thing.

Just imagine what would happen if a Republican politician made a joke like that?
