CNN panelists repeatedly slurred rapper Kanye West over his support for President Donald Trump, and host Don Lemon did nothing but laugh when they did.

A former South Carolina state representative, Democrat Bakari Sellers, now a CNN contributor, warned that Kanye’s opinions show “what happens when Negroes don’t read”:

"Kanye West is what happens when Negroes don’t read. 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."

Another CNN contributor, Tara Setmeyer, called West the White House’s “token 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."

She went on to suggest that West’s support of Trump is a sign of mental illness:

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