Even though it was clearly a joke… this was not a smart thing to do.

Hillary Clinton and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio were taking part in a black tie event in front of journalists and politicos on Saturday in the city, when they made a joke that just should never have been written.

The mayor — who officially endorsed Clinton and then teased her about how long it took — stepped up to the mic in front of Hamilton cast member Leslie Odom Jr., and decided that would be the perfect time to make a joke about… 'colored people'?!

Because it took de Blasio so long to endorse Clinton, he apparently thought it'd be a good day to make a joke about endorsing her on "C.P. time."

Of course, that is most commonly short for "colored people's time," a stereotype that has perpetuated about African-Americans being lazy and late to appointments.

He and Clinton played it off in the moment with a bad joke — ch-ch-check out how it goes down (below) — but the damage was done:

New ISIS Propaganda Video Includes Shots Of Times Square

Filed under: ViolenceScary!NewsViral: News

Police say there is no specific threat.

ISIS has released a new propaganda video that references New York City.

The clip began circulating the internet on Wednesday, showing footage of what appears to be a suicide bomber constructing an explosive for a belt.

Shots of Times Square are spliced in-between those of a faceless individual building a suicide belt. The footage shows taxis, crowds, and notable NYC storefronts.

The video did NOT show a bomber or radicalist in the city itself. But the clip did include video of French President François Hollande speaking after last week's tragic Paris attacks.

NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Public Information Stephen Davis acknowledges that this appears to be a threat towards the Big Apple, saying in a statement:

"While some of the video footage is not new, the video reaffirms the message that New York City remains a top terrorist target."

He made it clear that the police are treating the matter incredibly seriously, even though there is no word of any immediate threat, continuing:

police brutality chokehold seven month pregnant woman

What in the world is going on these days?!

Recently, a man named Eric Garner was taken down by police with a brutal chokehold… and ended up dying after the encounter.

Well, over the weekend, Rosean Miller, a seven-month-pregnant woman, was grilling in front of her apartment. An officer informed her that she couldn’t do that, and this is where the details get fuzzy. He reportedly said he needed to go into her home, and she didn’t let him, which is when the officer did the unthinkable.

An overnight rescue effort in New York brought only additional sadness as crews searched the rubble of what used to be two apartment buildings in Harlem.

Firefighters worked throughout the night, with temperatures plummeting, trying to locate any survivors from the apparent gas explosion. They found none.

Seven people have now been found dead. One victim pulled from the debris was so badly burned, their identity has yet to be confirmed.

To make matters worse, five additional people are still unaccounted for.

The search for those individuals continues today. Mayor Bill de Blasio is expected to update the city and the world on the latest information later this morning.

Such a tragedy.

Stay tuned for more details.
