New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is taking some heat for telling, for lack of a better phrase, an off-color joke over the weekend.
The incident took place at the City's annual Inner Circle Dinner, a roast of sorts in which former Mayor Rudy Giuliani appeared in drag. The current Mayor appeared in a skit with actor Leslie Odom, Jr. of the Broadway hit Hamilton and Hillary Clinton. In the skit, Hillary says to de Blasio that it took him long enough for him to endorse her. de Blasio replied, "Sorry, Hillary, I was running on C.P. time."
After Odom, Jr. feigned offense Hillary chimed in, "Cautious politician time. I've been there." But as usual the line fell flat.
For those who are unfamiliar with the term, C.P. time refers to "colored people's time", a racial perjorative.
