One way politicians look to attract voters is with their sense of humor. A few days ago during a charity event, Hillary Clinton wanted to show she can crack a few jokes and did so with New York’s current mayor. In an attempt to add light on why it took Mayor de Blasio so long to give his Clinton endorsement; they decided to blame it on ‘CP Time’ aka Colored People Time. After the video surfaced people are feeling some type of a way about the joke.
They may be skilled in political theater — but when Mayor de Blasio and Hillary Clinton appeared on stage together, their comic turn became a tragic gaffe. In a skit at Saturday night’s Inner Circle show, Clinton joined de Blasio as a surprise guest and ribbed him for delaying his endorsement of her presidential campaign.Their big moment became a big blunder when a tasteless joke — built off the stereotype that black people are chronically late — fell flat. “Thanks for the endorsement. Took you long enough,” Clinton deadpanned. “Sorry, Hillary. I was running on C.P. Time,” de Blasio replied, riffing on the phrase “colored people time,” meaning always late.
