It looks like the Reverend Jesse Jackson doesn't practice what he preaches!
As we mentioned earlier, it was revealed today that the Rev dropped the "N" bomb in his anti-Obama tirade captured by a Fox News 'hot' mic.
Well, it looks like Jackson has selective memory.
Check out what the Rev said in an interview with TV show Inside Edition last week:
Inside Edition: "There's a report that you used the N-word to refer to Obama, is that true?"
Jackson: "Not to my knowledge – unfortunate that is common usage in private, but I'm not aware of that."
Inside Edition: "You're not aware if you used the N-word to refer to him during that private conversation?"
Jackson also told INSIDE EDITION that any use of the N-word is unacceptable.
Inside Edition: "If you did use it or can recall using it, do you know if it was in a hateful way or simply trash talking, as you've described before?"
Jackson: "Simply that – and again since I have discouraged the use of that language both privately and publicly, that's unacceptable as well."
Jackson didn't use the "N" word to refer to Barack Obama, but he did seem quite comfortable using the word in another context.
Doesn't that contradict what he told Inside Edition?
He needs to take some lessons from Whoopie Goldberg — being honest about a tough topic is better than being a hypocrite, right?
