How many mulligans does Clinton get for racist jokes? [View all]

Just curious.


"Sorry Hillary, I was running on CP time," de Blasio said

Odom responded, "That's not -- I don't like jokes like that, Bill."

"Cautious politician time," Clinton said. "I've been there."

"CP Time" -- also known as "colored people's time" -- is a stereotype about African-Americans running late.

Hey but what would Leslie Odom know about "CP time"?
