AP

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) weighed in briefly Tuesday on racist remarks attributed to Clippers owner Donald Sterling.

“It’s reprehensible,” he told reporters, when asked to comment. He didn’t elaborate.

As first reported by TMZ over the weekend, Sterling was caught on tape telling his girlfriend during a private conversation not to bring black people to his games. The National Basketball Association is investigating the matter.
