Fox Suspends David Bossie For Saying Black Host Is Out Of His “Cotton-Picking Mind” (Heated Video)
Fox News Channel suspended David Bossie, from his duties as a contributor after he said a fellow guest was out of his “cotton-picking mind.”
Ah, political correctness! Will they suspend the next leftist that refers to someone as being a Nazi? Oh for God’s sake it is just an expression.
BTW, the term “cotton-picking” is a substitute for the word “damned”. The left uses any excuse to play the race card!

Fox News Channel suspended President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager and current adviser to the president, David Bossie, from his duties as a contributor at the network after he called a fellow guest on the channel a cotton picker.
While sparring with Democratic strategist Joel Payne over Democrats’ equating Trump voters to Nazis, Bossie interrupted Payne’s defense of the comments.
“You’re out of your cotton picking mind,” Bossie said to Payne in the closing comments on Sunday’s edition of “Fox & Friends Weekend.”
“Let me tell you something, I’ve got some relatives who picked cotton, and I’m not going to sit here and allow you to attack me like that on TV,” Payne said. “I’m not out of my cotton picking mind.”
Bossie later apologized for his comments on Twitter. “During a heated segment on Fox & Friends today, I should have chosen my words more carefully and never used the offensive phrase that I did. I apologize to Joel Payne, Fox News and its viewers,” he wrote.
