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.”
Did SCOTUS make the right decision on medical mandates for large businesses?
“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.

How can any honest person not call this CNN segment racist?
– “Kanye is what happens when negroes don’t read”
– Kanye is “token negro of the Trump administration”
– "Black folks are about to trade Kanye West in the racial draft”

This is pretty despicable. Not every black person is an intellectual like @Bakari_Sellers @TaraSetmayer @donlemon but regular folks have some decency and common sense. And @cnn is cool with this? #Kanye #KanyeWest https://t.co/4vEsKfaBpQ pic.twitter.com/0IWJQ6sse0

It sure looks that way.
This is an absolutely shameful segment on @DonLemon’s show last night about Kanye West, and if a similar segment occurred on Fox News about a liberal black person, CNN would be covering it as major news, rightfully so: https://t.co/MF4Pw90lhc pic.twitter.com/gKAiRpKizS
