It's not the most offensive thing in the Morning Joe segment, but my long big pet peeve with Villagers is their regular (if declining) pretense that swear words make them hit the fainting couch and represent the downfall of civilization. I don't spend much time there anymore, but I used to go to DC fairly regularly for various things. People swear. Reporters swear. Politicians swear. Senators I met five seconds ago said the "f-word." I'm sure the f-word gets dropped in the Morning Joe Morning Zoo show green room regularly. It is not alien to the culture, and that some blackity black man dares to use the "f-word" (that would be "fuck" you fucking fucks) in a song does not suggest anything about black culture, rap, hip-hop, or anything related, other than that in this modern age sometimes black people get to talk just like powerful white people do. By saying fuck, you fucking fucks.
