One of the bigger stories in recent days comes from former chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) Donna Brazile accusing Hillary Clinton of reaching a backdoor deal with the Democrats to allegedly squeeze Bernie Sanders out of the nomination. As the news continues to trickle out, one Fox News contributor and guest host used controversial language to put the problems of the DNC on former President Obama.

Fox News on Obama

In her upcoming book titled "Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-Ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House," former chair of the DNC, Donna Brazile created multiple headlines when she appeared to accuse Hillary Clinton of "rigging" the Democratic party.

Brazile claims she "found proof" that Clinton reached a deal with party officials to take control and fund the DNC during the primary to stop the party from falling into deeper debt. Since then, Brazile has slightly walked back her remarks by distancing herself from the term "rigging" when used in conjunction with Clinton's deal with the DNC. On Sunday, another excerpt from the book was released where Brazile admits she was looking into possibly having Clinton replaced in the general election after her fainting spell during a 9/11 memorial last year. Various names were under consideration, with former Vice President Joe Biden at the top of the list, with Sen. Cory Booker being looked at as potential running mate.

These issues and more were discussed during the November 4 edition of "Fox & Friends" on Fox News.

Joining co-hosts Abby Huntsman and Pete Hegseth was guest host and network contributor Kevin Jackson. Following Huntsman questioning how the DNC ended up in such a tight financial position, Jackson put the blame on Barack Obama.

"Sad part about that is Barack Obama was supposed to be a rock star, Jackson said, before using racially sensitive remarks to continue attacking the former president. "Here is this guy (Obama), sadly to say, the black man leaves them with no money," Jackson said.

"I know that a lot of people are going to be offended by that but that was the guy that was supposed to save the party," Kevin Jackson added.

The segment continued as the other hosts deflected from Jackson's remarks and attempted to shift the conversation in another direction. This isn't the first time that Jackson has commented about race, as he's been known to oppose members of the Black Lives Matter movement, as well as express his criticism of the Obama administration. Though Fox News hosts and contributors have come under fire for making alleged racially offensive comments in the past, backlash has not resulted over the most recent remarks, possibly due to the fact that Jackson is an African-American.

While Fox News continues to focus on the dissension within the Democratic Party, other networks are spending more time addressing the ongoing Russian scandal. With Donald Trump currently at the start of a planned 12-day foreign trip to Asia, only time will tell how the issues play out by the time he returns to the states.
