With all the debate going on about whether Florida Republican Ron Desantis was racist when he used the term “monkey this up” when speaking about the upcoming election for governor, DML NEWS readers asked we play a video from candidate Obama in 2008, when he used a similar term.

Barack Obama warned supporters that politicians had “monkeyed around” with elections, during a campaign speech at Kent State University in New Philadelphia, Ohio, on September 3, 2008.

    My mother always said “stop monkeying around and do your homework”.
    You can’t say a word and you’re racist

    Obama needing to chime in on this is maddening. If he was intelligent enough, which he’s not, he would know that he didn’t mean it in a racist way. It’s a figure of speech Obama ! You stupid man!
