Conservative Website Makes Reference to 'HNIC' Rhymes Preibus
Black Enterprise Magazine July/August 2018 Issue

be newsThe conservative website, The Daily Caller, made a major gaffe yesterday when the site’s Twitter account featured a variation of the n-word.

The original tweet was directed at Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus and linked to a story on the Daily Caller website about a Chicago rapper calling himself “Rhymes Priebus.”

“Hey @Reince, why didn’t you tell us you were moonlighting as a rapper? Turns out our GOP Chair is HNIC…” HNIC is a slang term meaning “Head N-word in Charge.”

The tweet was deleted a short time later and an apology was posted.
