A gun-loving TV host used a misspelled word as a racial slur against former President Barack Obama.
Chuck Holton, co-host of the “Frontlines” program on the recently launched NRATV online channel, celebrated Donald Trump’s inauguration with a tweet suggesting that the first black president had left a brown-colored stain on the U.S., reported Media Matters.
Holton posted the tweet on Sunday morning, and it remained online late Monday morning.
A mochaccino — which Holton misspelled — is a cappuccino coffee drink made with chocolate and apparently refers to Obama’s skin color.
Holton joined Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke last year in attacking Black Lives Matter, and the NRA commentator described white privilege as “a culture of individual responsibility.”
“If that creates a community that is better than these inner-city communities where there is no respect for authority, where there’s no fathers in the home — guess what?” Holton said during an August broadcast on NRA radio. “If you live in that inner-city community and you don’t like it, you are welcome to join our community and take advantage of this ‘privilege’ that we have any time you want.”
