Having thought about it for a bit.... If I were his employer, I would have thrown him out on the street - and recorded the part where his butt scraped the pavement.
If he wants to disseminate that kind of bile, he can do it on his own nickel - not on my station.
My apologies to listeners might border on slander.

There is absolutely no excuse for the line <<a pimp walking prez married to cheetahs daughter..>>and there is no defense either. It may be his 1st amendment right to speak freely, but it shows him to be a racist. If I were his GM, he'd have been fired immediately.

I don't know how American broadcasters would respond to such comments, but from up here in The Great White North, they seem to be absolutely astonishing.

Still, does this mean the man should be disallowed to speak - even though it is to demonstrate his ignorance and lack of humanity...? My guess: probably not.

The trick, I think, is in making sure those comments are also challenged - and in certain terms. And challenged openly.
