Former President Obama talks about the time he punched a guy for calling him a racial slur on podcast with Bruce Springsteen

It happened decades ago, but former President Barack Obama still clearly remembers the day someone he thought had his back called him a racial epithet. "Listen, when I was in school, I had a friend. We played basketball together," Obama told Bruce Springsteen on their new Spotify podcast, "Renegades: Born in the USA." "And one time we got into a fight and he called me a c***. And I remember I popped him in the face and broke his nose."
