Rick Sanchez: Obama 'Cotton-Picking President'

Come on Rick, they don’t even make this mistake on Fox News: CNN’s Rick Sanchez called President Obama the “cotton-picking president” on-air on Monday. The show went to break shortly after his comment, and upon returning Sanchez apologized for his word choice. The phrase “cotton-picking” is meant to express general disapproval; earlier this year, Newsweek Senior Editor Julia Reed was criticized for saying on CNN that Obama was “out of his cotton-pickin’ mind.”
