CNN Panel Mocks Kanye West as Trump’s ‘Token Negro,’ Don Lemon Laughs 


“He’s an attention whore, like the president,” added CNN contributor Tara Setmeyer

A CNN panel hosted by anchor Don Lemon took turns lacing into Kanye West on Tuesday evening, joking that his embrace of President Donald Trump has caused him to be tokenized. Several referred to him using the term “negro.”

“He’s 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,” said CNN contributor Tara Setmeyer.

“This is ridiculous and no one should be taking Kanye West seriously. He clearly has issues. He’s already been hospitalized,” she continued. “Not to trivialize mental health issues, [but] obviously Kanye has taken a turn in a very strange way.”

Another guest, former Congressman Bakari Sellers, also hit Kanye using much of the same language.

“Kanye West is what happens when negroes don’t read,” said Sellers. “And we have this now and now Donald Trump is going to use it and pervert and he’s going to have someone who can stand with him and take pictures.”

Throughout the bit, Lemon laughed along and joked about the expression of another panelist, CNN contributor Scott Jennings, who appeared visibly uncomfortable.

“I’m just looking at Scott’s face,” said Lemon barely getting the words out. “Scott’s like, ‘Wow, OK.'”

Reps for West and CNN did not immediately respond to request for comment from TheWrap.

It’s not the first time a CNN segment has floated mental illness as an explanation for Kanye’s behavior. During a “New Day’ episode last week, co-host Alisyn Camerota bluntly suggested Kanye might not be all there.

“I just am wondering if it’s time to start worrying about Kanye because he does go on, sometimes, nonsensical rants,” she said. “He has taken a break for some stress related issues, so I’m concerned.”

Kanye West has faced intense and withering criticism from fans and allies since making a public embrace of Trump in person and online. West was known to have been close to the billionaire before his election and that friendship has endured despite Trump’s basement approval ratings among black Americans.

West has become increasingly outspoken about his Trump love. After a performance on “Saturday Night Live” last month, the rapper sounded off and received a wave of boos from audience members after the cameras stopped rolling.

“You know it’s like the plan — the Democratic plan — to take the fathers out the home and promote welfare. Does anybody know about that? That’s the Democratic plan,” West said amid jeers on the sound stage of the NBC show. “So many times I talk to a white person about this and they say ‘how can you like Trump? He’s racist. If I was concerned about racism, I would have moved out of America a long time ago.”

For his part, Trump has returned the favor by rewarding Kanye with favorable tweets and granting him a private lunch at the White House later this week where the two are expected to discuss prison reform.

Who doesn't mock Kanye? He is a nut. If any human being deserves Mocking, its Kanye. "I am the number one human being in music. That means any person that's living or breathing is number two." "I'm doing pretty good as far as geniuses go ... I'm like a machine. I'm a robot. You cannot offend a robot ... I'm going down as a legend, whether or not you like me or not. I am the new Jim Morrison. I am the new Kurt Cobain ... The Bible had 20, 30, 40, 50 characters in it. You don't think that I would be one of the characters of today's modern Bible?" “[AIDS is] a man-made disease. [It was] placed in Africa just like crack was placed in the black community to break up the Black Panthers.” "I am more influential than] Stanley Kubrick, Apostle Paul, Picasso… f****** Picasso and Escobar.

I understand why he relates to Trump, they both believe themselves to be more important than Picasso, Apostle Paul, and any famous person you can imagine.

The problem here is hardly CNN. I mean, WTF, we have a president who invites a mentally ill person to the White House, taking advantage of the poor guy and using him to show that Trump has an actual black supporter.


And even that cynical act is not the worst part here.


While the President sits in the Oval Office televising insanity the Hurricane damage is still happening, the stock markets are in freefall, and the Saudi's appear to have murdered a journalist. Not that Trump has a problem attacking journalists, he turns his audiences against them calling journalists "the enemy of the people."


The problem is not the mentally troubled West, the problem is the incompetent president.

Oh pleas jim,are you such a cheap intellectual whore that you automatically defend any media outlet just because there is one that actually prints your drama drippings?


CNN has sunk from their early days of potential to be almost neck and neck with FOX as one of the most dishonest corporate owned political propaganda machines operating today. The way they go at it, it's like they want the FOX crown of sleaze fitted for teir heads.


You are a strange bird jim, you praise Hillary and Bill, now you go to bat for the sleazy CNN outlet.

Trump’s job approval nearly doubles among black Americans

The Left and its henchmen in the old-guard media relentlessly insist that President Donald J. Trump is America’s racist-in-chief. This exhausted lie seems to fall on increasingly skeptical ears. And a surprising number of them are black.

An August 7 NAACP poll found that 21 percent of black registered voters approve of Trump’s job performance. Even more impressive, in Wednesday’s Rasmussen tracking survey, 36 percent of black voters gave the president thumbs-up, compared with 19 percent a year ago.

These are not landslide numbers. And Trump’s disapproval ratings — 79 percent in the NAACP’s study and 64 percent in Rasmussen’s — are daunting. Still, the fact that Trump enjoys the support of one-fifth of black voters in one poll and more than one-third in another is astonishing for someone routinely smeared as a white supremacist. These statistics should trigger klaxons at Democratic headquarters.

Trump’s progress among this demographic strongly suggests that his policies are serving all Americans, including blacks.

Tax cuts, deregulation, and Uncle Sam’s newly pro-business tone (notwithstanding the ever-roiling storm clouds on global trade) all helped to propel the second-quarter GDP growth rate to 4.1 percent. This robustly outruns the knock-kneed 1.4 percent growth rate in the second quarter of 2016, as Obama wheezed toward his finish line. Meanwhile, last month’s unemployment rate was just 3.9 percent, down from 4.9 percent in July 2016 — during Obama’s final summer in office.

Just 3 percent of black Americans polled said they approved of Trump's performance, compared to the president's 36 percent approval overall. An overwhelming 93 percent of black Americans, meanwhile, said they disapprove. Those numbers have plummeted, data over time shows; just months ago his approval among black Americans was nearly 20 percent. http://theweek.com/speedreads/793513/trumps-approval-rating-among-black-voters-whopping-3-percent

Without the blinders, and in context, they are both building a bridge and expanding their brand's influence almost immeasurably. Looks like its got quite a few folks pissed off and confused at the same time.

I don't think that worked for either of them. Kanye is being rejected by his base because if this, and I don't think it much appealed to Trump's base at all.

Who are we to interpret the words of someone greater than the Apostle Paul and Picasso? You've got to be fucking kidding. Ill put my money on that oval office summit" being a shit show yesterday, tomorrow and into the foreseeable future. It was a parade of a guy Trump thinks can broaden his base....and the parade went awry....think Animal House and future Senator Blutarksy. If his goal was to widen his net for crazy people, he wasted money. All the crazy people already support him.

Fuck off nate, saying they are not the problem is incorrect IMO. CNN is definitely part of the problem, arguing that in this specific Kanye commentary the are not is really some disingenuos spin doctoring. CNN, Kanye and Trump are all part of 'the problem' in America today. 3 different assholes, all drinking at the same trough. As you are I imagine nate. Go belly up yet?

msn, as in msnbc?  get serious.  You all are just upset because your "darkies" are abandoning the Democrap plantation.  I suppose Kanye and Kim have as much right to visit the White House as the parade of guttersnipes that were practically camped there during the past regime.  You libs fairly crack me up.  Before Kanye West opened his eyes and saw the world for what it is, he was a musical genius, a poet lauriate, now he's crazy and worthless as dog shit.  So predictable.  Call dem slave catchers.
