Bad Blood Between Buchanan and Sharpton

The AP is reporting that MSNBC political analyst Pat Buchanan “didn’t mean” to voice a racial slur about President Obama to the Rev. Al Sharpton, a new host on MSNBC. On Sharpton’s program yesterday, Buchanan used the term “your boy” and said he was referring to boxing lingo.

Sharpton responded: “My what? My president, Barack Obama? What did you say?”
Buchanan said Wednesday: “Some folks took what I said as some kind of a slur,” Buchanan said. “None was meant, none was intended, none was delivered.”

This comes on the heels of TIME‘s Mark Halperin returning to “Morning Joe” after calling President Obama “kind of a dick.”
