“White people have been very, very good to Barack Obama, but he seems to resent the hell out of it,” Kelly said.

The opening monologue of “Greg Kelly Reports” focused on an interview Obama and rocker Bruce Springsteen gave while plugging their new book “Renegades,” which is being billed as two longtime friends engaged in “an intimate and urgent conversation about life, music, and their enduring love of America.” During the interview, Obama said that while the late Clarence Clemons, a saxophonist in Springsteen’s band, was beloved on stage, if the rocker’s white fans “ran into him a bar, suddenly the n-word comes out.”

“Barack Obama and Bruce Springsteen. Boy, oh boy, these guys are full of themselves,” Kelly opened. “They’re friends and we think that’s a really interesting arrangement. I’m not surprised by it. They’re rich, they’re famous, they’ve got plenty of time on their hands. They’re both very, very vain, by the way. I mean these guys take good, good care of themselves. Anyway, they were being profiled for about the one-thousandth time this weekend on CBS News and something happened that surprised me. They started talking about someone else other than themselves, the late Clarence Clemons.”

Kelly explained that as a young, aspiring saxophonist himself, he was a “big fan” of Clemons. He also took exception to Springsteen nodding in agreement with Obama’s “indictment” of the white fans who made him a fabulously wealthy man.

After playing a clip of Obama’s remark, Kelly added, “He does not understand America, he has no clue whatsoever. This is what he thinks of us. This is what he thinks of America… and what has gotten into Bruce?”

“Even the left, they’ve got to recognize, this guy Barack Obama, he just never was that into us was he?” he continued. “I mean what a disgraceful, disgraceful idea, the ‘N’ word. What kind of land is he living in?”

“The divisiveness, the racialization of everything. Get over yourself, Barack Obama. And you too, Bruce,” Kelly said, adding that America is more advanced than the left will admit and that Obama seems to “want to believe the worst of us.”

Calling their book tour the “Shame America Tour,” Kelly highlighted the apparent resentment Obama carries around, even though he was elected president twice. He also said the opposition he faced was over his left-wing policies, not the color of his skin.

“A big secret into this guy, and all of the people who like him, he doesn’t like people, so many people on the left, actually don’t like people,” Kelly said while calling attention to the exclusive life Obama lives.

“But at any moment, he throws around the race card. And I’m really surprised, because, quite frankly, forgive me, white people have been very, very good to Barack Obama,” he added. “But he seems to resent the hell out of it. He resents the hell out of it.”

Kelly concluded by pointing out that Obama does little to tackle the issues of race while living an affluent life, taking “the easy way out,” saying he plays the race card to paint himself as a victim but does little to address real challenges, like inner-city violence

“No, he’s been given every break because of something he had nothing to do with — his race. His race. And now he can just sit back and hang out with Bruce and everything is beautiful,” he said.
