As was first announced last week, President Barack Obama sat down for a candid, in-depth conversation with comedian and podcast host Marc Maron that was released Monday morning. But while the two contemporaries covered a lot of interesting ground, all anyone in the media wants to talk about is the fact that the president said the “n-word.” 

Obama’s decision to un-censor himself on the uncensored podcast that takes its name from the acronym for “what the fuck” was a hot topic on Fox & Friends this morning, where Brian Kilmeade introduced the clip in question by saying, “I did not know this, but one of the hottest podcasts in the country is WTF with — I think his name is Greg Maron?”

“It’s Marc Marone,” Steve Doocy added, incorrectly. When Fox proceeded to play a few seconds from the podcast, they bleeped Obama’s use of the word:

“Racism, we’re not cured of. And it’s not just a matter of it not being polite to say ‘nigger’ in public. That’s not the measure of whether racism still exists or not. It’s not just a matter of overt discrimination… Societies don’t, overnight, completely erase everything that happened 200 to 300 years prior.”

“He doesn’t just say ‘n-word,’ he actually uses the word,” Doocy explained to viewers, in case they didn’t get it yet, predicting that “people will be talking about whether or not it’s appropriate for the president to use the ‘n-word’ and whether or not it is beneath the dignity of his office.”

In response to the “salty” language, Fox’s Bret Baier admitted that Obama has the “prerogative” to “say those things when talking about racism from his personal knowledge and has a unique perspective, obviously, as the first African-American president.” But at the same time, he said “it will raise some eyebrows and you’ll probably have the White House respond.”
