Racist: CNN hack Don Lemon laughs, giggles as panel calls Kanye West ‘token negro’ — Video

During a panel discussion about Kanye West and Donald Trump, CNN propagandist Don Lemon laughed and giggled as members of the panel engaged in a discussion that would have seen conservatives labeled as open racists, Breitbart News said on Wednesday.

“Kanye West is what happens when negroes don’t read,” said CNN commentator Bakari Sellers, referring to an old Chris Rock hit.

CNN hack Tara Setmayer took it a step further, calling West “an attention whore like the president.”

“He’s all of a sudden now the model spokesperson—he’s the token Negro of the Trump Administration?” she added.

Lemon, Justin Caruso said, “laughed and giggled throughout the segment as the two commentators degraded Kanye West.”

The segment angered many on social media — even some who ordinarily wouldn’t support West or Trump.

It also didn’t seem to impress the folks at BET, who said: “While many may disagree with Kanye West’s political antics, throwing jabs at his mental state and mocking him is uncalled for.”

“Last night on CNN, Kanye West was called a ‘token negro’ and a ‘dumb negro’. I want you guys to imagine if those words were EVER uttered on FoxNews. CNN has finally committed to going full blown RACIST. They want their slaves back,” Candace Owens tweeted.

Good question.


It sure looks that way.

So true.

But hey, this is CNN, the cable outlet once dubbed the “least-trusted” name in network news.  Wonder why…
