A Minnesota newspaper sports producer walked back statements calling the president an “assclown” Monday.
Kevin Cusick, a sports producer for the Pioneer Press, wasn’t a fan of Obama taking selflies as part of last week’s BuzzFeed interview, so he took a jab at the president, via caption.
“A fool-proof way to make yourself look like a self-absorbed assclown,” Cusick wrote under a slideshow image of Obama’s selfie.
He changed his tune Monday, changing the wording to “self-absorbed celebrity.”
“After further review, it’s a poor choice of word,” Cusick told KMSP Fox 9 in Minnesota.
