*In a sermon delivered Sunday at his old stomping ground, Barack Obama’s former pastor Jeremiah Wright referred to one of his harshest critics, Elisabeth Hasselbeck of ABC’s “The View,” as “that dumb broad.”


      Speaking at Trinity United Church of Christ for its 47th anniversary, Rev. Wright included his trademark array of history lessons, mimicry and singing, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. His ire, however, was saved for Hasselbeck, who Wright twice referred to as a “broad,” including once as “that dumb broad.”


       Wright expressed pride in Obama’s longtime association with Trinity United Church of Christ, where he recently retired after serving 36 years as senior pastor.        

       “The hatred of the media and the haters in politics may have caused him to distance himself from us, but the love of Christ will never allow me to distance myself from him,’ Wright said of Obama. “I can no more disown him than I can disown any other child of mine who makes [a] bad decision. He made a bad decision, but he’s still my child.”      

       Wright and his sermons became controversial during the presidential race, particularly one in which he said “God damn America.” Obama subsequently cut ties with Wright and the church where he was married and where his children were baptized.


      Also at Trinity on Sunday was the Rev. Michael Pfleger, whom Wright called “my main man.” Pfleger drew heat with criticism of then-candidate Hillary Clinton last spring.
