Comedian Don Rickles isn't sorry about his racial Obama joke

Media

Last week 86-year-old comedian Don Rickles made a joke about President Barack Obama that some saw as... off color.

“I shouldn’t make fun of the blacks,” Rickles said. “President Obama is a personal friend of mine. He was over to the house yesterday, but the mop broke.”

And Rickles doesn't apologize for it.

"It was a joke as were the other comments Don made that night," a representative for the comic told Politico. "Anyone who knows him knows he's not a racist."

Come on, everyone knows old people get a pass in talking like that. They're old. They can't help it.
