You know the story. Don Lemon and a bunch of his friends let their true colors show after Kanye West’s visit with President Trump at the White House. They called Kanye a “the token negro of the Trump administration,” and Lemon was ALL about it.
“Anti-intellectualism simply isn’t cool,” CNN political commentator Bakari Sellers said. “Kanye West is what happens when Negros don’t read.”
Apparently, that isn’t racist.
“This is not the Kanye West of 2004,” Setmayer continued. “Now all of the sudden because he’s put on a MAGA hat and he’s an attention whore like the president, he’s all of the sudden the model spokesperson. He’s the token negro of the Trump administration.”
That’s not considered racist either. Lemon wasn’t outraged. He agreed. He LAUGHED. According to these people, black people are not capable of thinking for themselves. They MUST be Democrats, and if they’re not, it’s because they’re idiots who don’t read.
And they call us racists? Amazing, right?
Cue James Woods. He summed it up pretty well.
#DonLemon attacked #KanyeWest for “sitting with white people,” degraded his “mental health issues,” called his presence in the Oval Office a “minstrel show,” and mocked Mr. West’s late mother. This is @CNN. pic.twitter.com/h0SJswhgWk

Exactly. How is ANY of that acceptable? Can you imagine if this kind of segment went down on Fox News, say during Tucker’s show? All HELL would break loose. We’d have idiots like David Hogg calling for advertiser boycotts and everything.
But it’s fine, because this happened on CNN. They’re “real news,” Mr. President! Just ask Jim Acosta.
