But he did say this about whether or not he had recently spoken to the president:
"Them Jews aren't going to let him talk to me."
Rev. Wright -- you know better than to use insults like that. Insulting words and the ideas that are behind them do no good -- they do a whole lot of harm. I think you need to apologize.
UPDATE: June 10
From Rev. Wright's official Facebook page:
"I apologize to the Jewish community and all others who were offended by the way in which I framed my comments. I misspoke.
I meant no harm or ill-will to the American Jewish community or the Obama Administration. My great respect for the Jewish faith and the foundational (and central) part of my Judeo Christian tradition are unquestionable and I pray that all whom I have hurt accept my sincerest apology."
I know some folks will decide to parse words and say that Rev. Wright didn't say enough. Debates may continue, but I'm glad he apologized.
Thank you, Rev. Wright.
