Former president Barack Obama responded indirectly to leaked text messages that reveal Hunter Biden is comfortable using a racial slur among his friends.
In a new interview with Anderson Cooper, Obama praised his daughters, Sasha, left, and Malia, right, for their personal views on "cancel culture," saying his girls don't expect everyone to be perfect.
"[T]hey have a pretty good sense of 'Look, we don't expect everybody to be perfect. We don't expect everybody to be politically correct all the time, but we are going to call out institutions or individuals if they are being cruel.'"
Some social media users suggest Obama knew the texts would leak, and he was getting ahead of the scandal by rationalizing Hunter's behavior as imperfect.
"If @DonaldJTrumpJr had just ONE text like this, the media mob would be enraged!!! Where is the #cancelculture," wrote one Twitter user.
Another user wrote: "Imagine if this were Don Jr.
The overload of outrage would break Twitter."

Exclusive emails obtained by DailyMail.com reveal Hunter Biden used the N-word in multiple text messages to his white attorney, George Mesires.
The U.S. president's son dropped the N-word multiple times in text messages to his own lawyer -- who didn't object to the word.
In a December 2018 text exchange, Hunter, 51, wrote, "How much money do I owe you. Becaause [sic] ni**a you better not be charging me Hennessy rates."
In another text exchange with his attorney, Hunter wrote: "And I only love you because you're black."
His attorney replied: "It's so annoying when you interject with frivolity."
Hunter responded: "True dat ni**a."
So far, Mesires has not commented on the brewing scandal publicly.

"Weird how everyone who screamed about 'racism' & 'white supremacy' for the last 4 years are completely *silent* about member of the First Family Hunter Biden using the N-word multiple times along with racist stereotypes & memes.
Isn't this what you have been waiting for?"
