- Mayor Bill de Blasio and presidential contender Hillary Clinton took part in a skit Saturday night that included the comment "cp time."

It was a rift on the phrase "colored people time."

Also on stage with the pair was Broadway star Leslie Odom Jr., who is black and plays Aaron Burr in the hit production of 'Hamilton.'

"I don’t like jokes like that, Bill,” said Odom.

Clinton then clarified that it meant "cautious politician time."

The skit during the annual 'Inner Circle' show that takes jabs at politicians isn't sitting well with some who say regardless of its intention, it was offensive.

The NY Daily News cover story Tuesday called the incident "Skit for Brains.'
