GREG KELLY (HOST): So, now, is Trump sometimes rough around the edges? Yes and no — kind of, but not really, actually. The stuff he does is stuff that other people do, he just does it better. So, you may have heard about this Truth Social message over the weekend, and he had a lot to say. I mean, he's under attack. Happy Memorial Day to all, including the human scum that is working so hard to destroy our once great country — human scum. All right, that's pretty harsh. But you know what? If you're trying to destroy this country and sexualize children and throw that man in jail, human scum? I can live with that. The media pretends they're shocked.


KELLY: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Oh my God. I can't believe he used that word. S, C, U, M.

I've heard worse. I've heard a lot worse from people they told us would bring normalcy and everything's — Nikki Haley. Nikki Haley didn't write it in a tweet, she said it directly to Vivek Ramaswamy's face. Yes she did. And somehow she's the genteel person.


KELLY: All right. It's kind of quick there, but she said it. You are just scum. Scum. I think that's, kind of -- but you know what? That can be forgiven because it's Nikki and it's not Trump.

What about when Obama said the n-word? That's pretty — well, for some people that would be unforgivable, but Obama is just cool, right?


KELLY: It's not. Not on a podcast, not in public, not if you're white, not if you're Black. But somehow in our culture, nothing seems to make sense. Or if it does, it's in the most stupid way imaginable.
