During the White House Correspondents Dinner, late night host Larry Wilmore called President Obama “my n****”.
“When I was a kid I lived in a country where people couldn’t accept a black quarterback … Now think about that: A black man was thought by his mere color not good enough to lead a football team. And now to live in your time, Mr. President, when a black man can lead the entire free world,” Wilmore said during the gala event.
“Words alone do me no justice. So Mr. President if I’m going to keep it 100: Yo Barry, you did it my n—-” Wilmore exclaimed. “You did it.”
