The Daily Beast reported that the same staffer explained to them how Trump was “tone-deaf to the racially charged history of the term, which is used to deride a black man deemed to be subservient to white people.”  Lil Jon’s statement confirmed the name-calling and that he had to explain to Trump why the term was so offensive. ...
