"The United States Secret Service is investigating a Turlock woman over a post she made, using the N-word, about President Obama on Facebook.

"Another 4 years of this (N-word)," Denise Helms wrote. "Maybe he will get assassinated this term."

The post, which has since been taken down, went up right after the president won his second term Tuesday night.

"I didn't think it would be that big of a deal," Helms told FOX40.

Even though Helms removed the post from her profile, she's not going to apologize.

"The assassination part is kind of harsh," Helms said. "I'm not saying I'd go do that or anything like that, by any means, but if it was to happen I don't think I'd care one bit."

FOX40 asked her to clarify.

"Really? It wouldn't bug you if someone assassinated the president?" FOX40 asked.

"Well, it's not something I would dwell on. It's not something I would be upset about," Helms responded."*

Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break down why there is such extreme hatred toward President Obama and why Helms doesn't seem very remorseful for her comment.
