Barbara Espinosa, an Arizona radio host, is in hot water after calling President Obama a “monkey.”  The controversy took place on her radio show “Hair on Fire.”  She denies being a racist, but her own comments are causing many to question otherwise.  Think Progress reports:

Barbara Espinosa, the host of an Arizona radio show called “Hair on Fire,” called the President a “monkey” on a recent radio segment. “I don’t believe in calling him the first black president,” she said, “I voted for the white guy myself. I call him a monkey.” When outrage erupted over her racist comments, Espinosa went on the Internet to defend herself. In one comments section, she linked to a Google image search of the words “Obama as monkey cartoon” and wrote, “With a last name of Espinosa I’m anything but racist.”
