Was it racist?KUSHNER: Like I said, I wasn’t involved in that.SWAN: I know you weren’t. Was it racist?KUSHNER: I know who the president is, and I have not seen anything in him that is racist. So, again, I was not involved in that.SWAN: Did you wish he didn’t do that?KUSHNER: Like I said, I was not involved in that. That was a long time ago.
