Don Lemon hosts CNN panel

A CNN contributor ripped into Kanye West who is invited to a power lunch with President Donald Trump and his son-in-law Jared Kushner on Thursday.

A CNN panel hosted by Don Lemon heavily criticized the music producer on Wednesday. One CNN guest referred to Kanye using the archaic term "negro."

"He's like an attention whore, like the president. He's all of a sudden now the model spokesperson," said CNN contributor Tara Setmeyer, who is Black. She added that Kanye was "the token negro of the Trump administration."

Lemon laughed hysterically as the outdated term "negro" was tossed around to describe a Black man who rose from humble beginnings to amass unimaginable personal wealth.

President Trump, Kanye West

"This is ridiculous and no one should be taking Kanye West seriously," Setmeyer continued. "He clearly has issues. He's already been hospitalized," she said.

"Not to trivialize mental health issues, [but] obviously Kanye has taken a turn in a very strange way."

Congressman Bakari Sellers, who also sat on the panel, used similar language to describe Kanye's support of the president.

"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."

Lemon laughed throughout the ranting. But CNN contributor Scott Jenkins, who is Caucasian, looked visibly uncomfortable.

"I'm just looking at Scott's face," said Lemon, who was clearly amused by Jenkins' discomfort.

Kanye has faced criticism from other Black people who are outraged at his continued support of President Trump.

Monica Brown, who is currently starring in a reality TV show with rapper T.I. Harris and his wife Tameka Harris, put Kanye on blast for leaving the Democratic plantation.

Monica Brown

The Grammy award-winning singer-turned Instagram model told a TMZ videographer that Kanye should "join other Blacks so that we are all speaking together on Black issues."

She added: "He has to reassess this entire relationship. I think that is going to continually hurt us if we aren't speaking together in the right places, making the right decisions, doing it the right way."

Brown conceded that Kanye's wife Kim Kardashian met with President Trump to pardon a grandmother who was sentenced to life in prison on drug charges.

But she stopped short of praising Kanye's efforts to meet with Trump to bring thousands of jobs to the Black community in Chicago.

Kanye has always insisted that he is an independent thinker who doesn't follow the crowd. He is at the forefront of the #Walkaway movement that encourages disillusioned Black people to leave the Democratic Party.

President Trump's approval rating among Black people following the election in 2016 was just 8%. His approval rating among Black people as jumped to 36% in the 2 years since the election.

    Oh no! I guess I'll start watching Fox News then. <-- sarcasm

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    "The Grammy award-winning singer-turned Instagram model"...Lawd Sandra the shade of it all!!! LOL...But you aint never lied tho...

  • Ryan

    And as for anybody who thinks that Trump would help bring thousands of jobs to Chicago of all places. *sigh*

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    There's a reason why all these KKK groups, neo-Nazis, and white nationalist groups fervently support Donald Trump like they do.
    Trump is essentially a race-baiting bigot. I feel sorry for any black person who doesn't recognize that.

  • ohdearme

    Thank you, the sad part is that the term "Democrat PLANTATION" is being used in this article. I may not agree with everything the Dem's say but ANYTHING is better than watching the racist clown and his party in office now.

  • ohdearme

    Amen!

  • ohdearme

    The only flaw I can point out in this interview is that they should've said Kanye's the "second" H N, because good old lying cheating Pastor Scott from Ohio was definitely the first!

  • Elevated Soul

    No shock,this is why I don't do Fake News.I also don't discuss any politics with Black Democrats because they are too closed minded and just quite stupid politically.

    Black Democrats are truly very ignorant and hateful toward Blacks who are not Democrat. They are just as racist as the Democratic created KKK was to Black people.

    CNN as well as other Fake News sources are hypocrites. Those racists love to project their racism onto other people. They laugh at a Black man (Ye) because that Black man spoke his voice and not the voice of the oppressor as they do.....

    Sending positive energy to my Black people who think for self!

  • Ryan

    Agreed!!

  • Justme

    We should embrace the Trump administration for what it has done. It has let us see what people really think of us. They feel safe to call police on us for using the pool, for selling water things like that. Before they hid amongst us. We felt as if they considered us equal. But know we know they don’t like us, don’t want to be around us and they think we are still beneath them

  • Jethro

    Should she have said "token African-American?" A token negro is exactly what West is to Benedict Donald. No need to rewrite valid terminology to keep disingenuous tRumptards from going off the deep end.

  • iWasteTime
  • ohdearme

    You've condemned an entire party based on your conversations with a few, yet they're stupid? Oh the irony you Trump bots try to spin without realizing what a fool you make of yourself. To call CNN reporters "racists" given the many racist and bigoted things Trump has said renders your entire comment ignorant and moot! Goodbye, BTW you forgot to call out "Crooked Hillary" in your talking points LOL.

    THE prefect gif!!! *high five*

  • RespectSelf

    Dang that was harder to watch than any dumb thing Kanye has said smh. Can we just start keeping the same energy across the board. Calling him a negro sends a message to white folks. Like "look how them negro's talk about each other" smh smh smh Monica hit it right on the nose. Folks aren't even listening to the actual message... He should let go of his relationship with Trump because its popular to hate Trump right now

  • http://www.pureromance.com LA

    Good point!

  • ohdearme

    Yes the terminology in this article says you should embrace the Trump administration because clearly according to this the Democratic Party is referred to as the Democratic "PLANTATION", oh and Trump's use of S'hole countries shouldn't matter either. smh

  • Coy little wink

    I already knew this stuff...where have you been hun?

  • SpillyNillie

    And Kanye still doesn't realize that THIS is the problem and why us Black people want him to do better!! Damn!

  • Justme

    I’m glad you knew. But we as a whole thoughtbtimes were better. We bought into we could be just as good as them. We can but we must believe we are just as good in spite of them

  • http://www.pureromance.com LA

    Yeah, I cringed watching this.. I am choosing to ignore K. West.. I think all who disagree with him should follow suit.. Because giving him the time, thought, and attention is fuel to his fire...

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I agree. These people make it seem like the Republicans love and care about black people. Nonsense.
    Republicans have been leading gerrymandering & voter suppression efforts all over the country for years now, trying to subvert the power of black vote. And these black "conservatives" like to pretend that's not happening.

  • ohdearme

    I don't believe that he should let go of his relationship with Trump 'IF" in fact it's genuine, problem is Kanye talks out of his a@@ just to be considered free thinking and different to a man that clearly hates everyone that isn't in his economic standing and the same skin tone as his. It then becomes laughable and a joke. Kanye made an a@@ of himself on SNL and Trump thanks him for "leading the charge for blacks"? WTF, no really WTF? Obama was friends with JayZ and Beyonce and that has been a bone of contention with Kim and Kanye for years. NOTHING these two attention wh0res do is genuine.

  • Braxton P. Hartnabrig

    So when Kanye was a struggling producer was he a token kneegrow then? He created a lane and opportunity for himself and taken full advantage of it. Like really!!!! I'll take Kim Kardashian over 100% of the women in SW Atlanta. Kanye is not black folks issue. The issue with black folks is the culture that is having it's male population incarcerated at a high rate. That culture have to change are black males will continue to be the majority in the prison system.

    Oh Sandra 'forgot' to mention that Tara is a Republican.
    Even she's getting tired of people toading up to Trump.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Did you hear about the white woman who called the police on a black man because he was babysitting the children of a white couple?

    The dude was sitting in Wal Mart eating with the children but this simple bish thought he had kidnapped them.

    I guess she believed Susan Smith too.

  • ohdearme

    Right, I'm in Ohio and we actually had to have protections in place to stop the voter "purge" as they called it. They want to stop as many votes against them as possible and people are not paying attention. Now that the unthinkable has happened with Trump in the white house, we're hoping that it sent a wakeup call to those that want change and will take the time to vote. Early voting started yesterday and I'm giving any employee that wants to vote early a half day off!

  • Coy little wink

    What is wrong with the women in SW Atlanta?

  • ohdearme

    Kanye can't reel himself in nor does Kim want him to, these two have never cared about politics UNTIL Bey & Jay were embraced. That's what makes this whole debacle so sad, he wants to be with the "IN" crowd regardless of where the IN leads him.

  • RespectSelf

    Exactly.... Trump being in office has really has been a little too real for folks. It has shown us that folks still don't bang with us.... Folks should see that if you are not voting locally then your vote for the president does not matter at all. And lastly.... what folks hate most about trump is that he's not a politician. He doesn't know how to LIE to us... he doesn't know how to say a bunch of crap that sounds good lol... Instead of keeping his insults behind close doors... he just let us know how he really feel. We don't want that... we want folks that are fake and lie to us

  • ohdearme

    The thing is he's like that ugly awkward kid in school that you help out once and in their minds you're they're new best friend that follows you around all day everyday. They did some music together and is the type that wears his heart on his sleeve, you're MY bestie Jay & Bey! When they didn't attend his wedding THAT was very telling to an outsider, yet he still didn't get it.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    He obsessed with sw atl women

  • Braxton P. Hartnabrig

    This is how majority of women in SW Atlanta act. With a whole bunch of kids. Majority in this case is 90 - 99 percent.

    And we've got attempted voter suppression going on in Georgia RIGHT NOW with a republican candidate helping purge voters, delaying approval of applications, etc. and most of those voters just happen to be black in a state with only about 32% blacks. I'm not going on the "republican plantation" cause they'd lynch me if they could get away with it.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Would she call the cops if a white woman was sitting with 2 black kids in her car with her? I think now.

    It's funny now how white folks call the cops on us now like they're calling Customer Service.

    Did you hear about the poor kid at Rowan college in NJ?

    Supposedly some white person claimed that a black man had a gun and drove away in a black Challenger.

    The local police followed a black Challenger onto the college campus and forced the driver to get out of the car and walk backwards.

    They held him and his passenger in separate police vehicles for almost an hour but never told them why.

    What never made sense is that they didn't bring the witness to the scene so they could identify the guy.

    The only description was a black guy with poofy hair and driving a black car.

    I still don't know what crime had been committed.

    I think they really did rock with him. He proved himself to Jay and earned his respect... I think he lost it ( his mind and their respect) with all the antics that took place after his mother died.. He started going against everything he stood for in the beginning of his career after the death of his mom... Dude married an attention and straight up wh0re.

    The sad thing is that some people really don't care or pay attention to a particular issue until a celebrity says something about it.

  • RespectSelf

    But see that's where I'm saying keep that same energy to folks... Kanye has been the same way for years, but when he is saying something that folks don't want to agree with then it's he's crazy or now he's a token negro, or he's an attention seeker.... He can't be all those things now just cause he likes Trump.....

  • Scromes1212

    They hate Trump so much that it doesn't matter if him and Ye do something positive smh they will just find a way to flip it into something negative or make it about something trivial smh that CNN clip is a perfect example of what Ye was talking about. They will say and do anything to bring him down in front of the whole world smh

  • http://www.pureromance.com LA

    That was woke Kanye, lol.. George Bush ain't so bad now, lol.. Him and Laura was on the stage with Barack and Michelle for the grand opening of the museum in DC.. I was there..

  • ohdearme

    You're mistaken, many considered him as all of those things for years, this is NOT something new. Do you remember when he suggested the world should bow down to the Kardashian's" Many knew years ago that much was wrong with Kanye. Now that he's had his 5150 hold people were trying to be polite about his actions given the stigma about mental illness. Supporting Trump and talking about the Democratic party supports a broken home and welfare to cozy up to Trump is being a token. He talks out of the side of his neck for attention from Trump just to be considered the "favored" one. I'm willing to bet if you sat down with him and stated you know that George Bush and Donald Trump are from the same party, he would recoil> Remember Bush supposedly hated black people? I'm sorry this is so long.

  • Vonn

    "Kanye has always insisted that he is an independent thinker who doesn’t follow the crowd." But he wants ppl to follow his crazy ass lead...NOPE

    It was the Republicans that was against slavery. The Democrats just like now want to keep people enslaved. They want open borders, globalism, and low wages. And they will do anything including destroying this country to accomplish that. Is that what you want?

    Here's the thing, before Trump Bush was going down in history as the "dumbest" president ever, if you notice the spring in his step it's because that title can officially be bestowed on Trump! lol Bush was dumb as a stump but not racist, Trump is both not to mention misogynistic and homophobic. To support this man in anything he does is lunacy!

Kanye needs 2 tell dump 2 make laws 2 send white folks 2 jail for making fake 911 calls on black people so they can fill up pour friends private prisons. If it wasnr for the cellphones they would b in jail on bs charges. Tell dump to rename the strom thurmond room in thé White house as well. That is paying homage 2 a racist. White folks call thé cops on black people like they are ordering stuff from amazon

  • Mielle Downey

    This is why Black people stay losing. We are the white people pet when it comes to taking down our own brothers and sisters. SO what the man is allowed to have his own opinion. What bothers me is the fact that White people have so much power to try and bully us in to thinking a certain way. They even got Kathy Griffin and Lana delRay and a host of other whte people trying to tell their black pets whats right like we don't have a effing clue. The buck stops here. We are all skin folk black people but that don't make us kin folk. do what you want.

    Odumba called Kanye a Jackass. Odumba called Libya a "shit show" What's that silence. Instead of deporting illegals, Odumba told ICE to "catch and release" them. Then the Odumba administration resettled illegals in every state in 2016, but it backfired on the Democrats when traditionally blue states flipped red (can you guess why?). The Democratic party is the Demonic Plantation. Dumb azz niccas continue to keep black people down by following white liberals like you doing right now.

    I know folks stopped banging with him when he started dealing with Kim.... which again goes back to keep that same energy. We can't be preaching that folks should be able to love who they want and should have freedom of speech until we don't agree with it. I admit that Kanye talks out the side of his neck based off stuff he's heard. But how does him saying that the Democratic party supports a broken home and welfare make him a token negro. lol Every one knows that Welfare became a thing under a democratic administration. Everyone who's been on welfare knows that you will get little to nothing if you acknowledge the father being around. Everyone knows that the Crime Bill (passed during a Democratic administration) has taken away and locked up a lot of minorities men. It almost seems like they use the Democratic party to do the most damage to us because we are blinded by this Idea that they represent us. I personally think Kanye should sit down and focus on his music and fashion career, but not about to hate him because of his given right to have his OWN opinion.

    Here’s a snippet from Clinton’s emails, written by no other than racist hillary herself:

    “The main reason behind successful immigration should be painfully obvious to even the most dimwitted of observers: Some groups of people are almost always highly successful given only half of a chance (Jews*, Hindus/Sikhs and Chinese people, for example), while others (Muslims, blacks** and Roma***, for instance) fare badly almost irrespective of circumstances. The biggest group of humanity can be found somewhere between these two extremes – the perennial overachievers and the professional never-do-wells.”

  • ohdearme

    Here's the thing, you missed the whole point, not one person said he shouldn't love his wife, what people said is if you love it all good, HOWEVER when you start stating that the world should bow down to a known h0, you've lost your mind. You speak about the Democratic party starting welfare, yeah they did, now ask yourself why? You may not remember that welfare started as a "help" a "stepping stone" if you will. Not one person was supposed to live off of welfare from generation to generation, it wasn't created that way. Black, white it doesn't matter, the real fact that Kanye doesn't even know is a simple Google search will show you that welfare is most utilized by whites, that's a fact. You're making excuses about black men and the welfare system to justify a narrative, just know that's all it is, a narrative. Welfare was NEVER supposed to be the end all to be all, it was a help to get on your feet. No party did anything worse than the GOP with no child left behind, you have graduates that can't read a Dr. Seuss book holding a diploma. Everyone has a right to their opinion, it's when the state their opinion as fact to the masses that becomes a problem. ISSA LIE! just saying.

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    Why is Kanye a coon scapegoat? Because he’s not a democrat? Out beating republicans up? Speaking his mind? Because he’s not a democrat?

  • RespectSelf

    His vote wouldn't have matter if he's not voting locally. Hillary got the people's Vote... But "they" wanted Trump in office. If you listen to what dude is actually saying... it's not like he really like Trump for his political views.... more of what dude represents by even being able to be the President. The underlying message he started to promote was "love"... and he tried to take the most hated person and show love to him lol. But it has completely been blocked by the over powering hate folks have for Trump and his continued poor choice of words to make a point.

    He’s like an attention whore, like the president. He’s all of a sudden now the model spokesperson,”

    If you don't like his politics then you can always hit him in his pockets. The problem is folks won't do that. They'll continue to support his music while wanting him to conform to their way of thinking. When his actions affect his earning potential he'll shut the fugg up...

  • RespectSelf

    People would rather believe there's a monster in the closet than actually see it. I think folks knew it wasn't all good, but Trump open the door for folks to really see it's not all good.

    A famous Hispanic, Asian, or White man or woman can profess their love and support for President Trump and no backlash. A Black man or woman says they love or support Trump and all hell breaks loose. White Democrat slave masters owed us back then and they still act like they own us now. The hound dogs that used to chase us when we escaped the slave planation have been replaced by your own Black people clowning, humiliating and trashing you because you dare to be a Republican or support Trump. It's sad to see and it's mental slavery. That is what Kanye's "choice" comment meant. White Democrats do not own the Black man or woman's thoughts, minds, or votes.

    I agree with this. The problem is neither party is good for Blacks. Republican plantation. Democratic plantation. It's all the same plantation. Neither party truly has our best interests at heart.

  • Miss Thang

    As much of a liberal as I am, I really love Tara Setmeyer. Such an intelligent, articulate young woman. Kanye West has publicly announced that he is bi-polar and not taking his meds, and he has been hospitalized for his condition, so no lies were told during this segment.

  • Elevated Soul

    So true....Every other race can express themselves but not Black people and this is due to some hella dysfunction in the Black community especially among Black Democrats.

    Like Ye stated" they choose to be slaves" on the mental tip.Our ancestors have been free from the physical chains but the mental chains still remain with the strongest padlock available..

    These same sellouts will call Whites racist in a heartbeat but I'm telling you,White liberals have brainwash Black Democrats to become oppressors of Blacks who are not on the Democratic Plantation.

  • RespectSelf

    I get that you focused on what he said about bowing down to her, but there are a lot of people who stop liking him for the simple fact that he is with her. I don't think that Welfare was suppose to only hurt black people... I think it was suppose to help the poor stay poor lol. Like medicine helps the sick stay sick lol. Have you every watch a medicine commercial? They show you an image of being their happiest while telling all the bad side affects the whole commercial. So we would be naive to think they didn't foresee folks abusing welfare on a large scale... or that they would be passing folks through school when they know nothing at all smh.

  • Simone

    100% co-sign! It makes me sad and so angry at the same time when a Black man or woman receives a modern day public lynching (career destroyed, reputation destroyed, mental illness mocked, etc.) just because you support Trump or the Republican Party. The Democrat Party does not own me!

  • Renee26

    Wrong platform to be using the term IMO.. They told no lies but I am not for saying negro or neega around yt people or in professional settings. We reserve those words for a more relaxed setting...just like cursing. We turn our internal sensors on and off when needed.

    Ion want NO yt person feeling comfortable around those words and I don't want to reinforce any negative stereotypes in the back of their minds...just my personal reasons for not using those words around yt people.

  • Miss Thang

    There are plenty of black Republicans much more intelligent and of sound mind. Kanye is sick in the head and not in his right mind since he is not in therapy or taking his medication. No one should be listening to his deranged opinion.

  • Simone

    You do know that some bi-polar people support and vote for Democrats as well, right? Kanye being bi-polar has nothing to do with his political views.

  • City girl

    Exactly. I asked this (Maga) moron on Instagram why racist affiliate themselves with the Republican party, And he gave me an honest answer, which I already knew was the case. He said "Because Democrats are for minorities, and Republicans are for us real whites".

    And there you have it. Yet these tap dancing coons (it has to be mental illness with them) stay advocating for the Republicans.

  • hottlanta

    First off what the phawk is Don lemon laughing for? He has no room to talk for he is a token negro himself.?

    I’m not found of Kayne and his antics at all! But I do feel Tara needs to watch what she’s says about him. People fail to realize words hurt more than anything. He could internalize her verbal abuse as bullying and send him into a deeper spiral. I don’t understand why Blacks feel the need to bring each other down publicly to get a nod from the white man.?

    People need to leave this man alone, he’s only hurting himself.

    And Monica needs to just shut her ignorant hood rat ass up!!

  • Simone

    Again, you do know that bi-polar people also support and vote for Democrats as well. What does being bi-polar have to do with one's political views? Kanye hasn't said anything "deranged". He said he wants to meet with President Trump to discuss prison reform (unlike coward Meek Mill) and gang violence. He is from Chicago. He cares, unlike the Democrat Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

  • Quitedeliteful

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!

  • Elevated Soul

    I so agree.....They laugh at Kanye and speak on his bi-polar diagnosis as if it's something to laugh Blacks with their mentality will ALWAYS call any Black person who dare not to participate in group think "crazy"....Blacks with their mentality are the gatekeepers for the masters on the Democratic Plantation.

    The irony that makes me say look twice especially at Lemon is that: He has a White man that he allows to sodomize him because I assume he's a bottom.Then again he may be a top who sodomize the White man and yet he always like to act as if he define Blackness but I'm like "bish pleeeeze".

    No I hold my husband and children on a pedestal just as any spouse would, telling others they should as well is crazy. It's not that I only focused on that part, I gave one outrageous example to make my point. I can't speak for what the world thinks. As for welfare as I stated above it was to help people get on their feet as many did. Plenty of people to this day find work and continue working or open businesses. I'm just stating a fact that goes back to 1964, when welfare was started. What people "chose" to do with the help was on them. Same goes for welfare reform that trained people for jobs while receiving welfare to help them achieve gainful employment that paid more than minimum wage. We can't debate the matter if you don't know the history of welfare and subsequent reforms. No shade I'm just telling from an employer standpoint how it initially came to be. As for medicine keeping the sick sick? Or that with our computer systems that ties into everything that you think there's widespread welfare abuse? We can't have these conversations because it sounds as though you may have missed many initiatives and technological measures.

  • Marlika

    And this stupid cow Tara is not even black yet she’s comfortable calling a black man a “ dumb token negro”?

    Kanye is a shock value entertainer.

    The same guy that’s made Jesus walks also was the first curator for the pornhub awards.

    The same guy that said Bush didn’t care about Blacks.

    Kanye was butt hurt from Obama’s lack of love to him and Kim . Obama called Kanye a jackass on tape, he probably resents Obama’s relationship with Jay-Z and Beyoncé. So this is nothing more than a side act for attention and shock value. This is what he does.

    The next question will be if he does something with it.

    Republicans were also slave owners my dear and they were involved in all of those terrible acts ad well. Also, there was a shift in party values that you are not mentioning...that shift is why minorities typically support the Democratic party.

    People support what benefits them. Poor will typically side with policies that address improving social issues and the upper middle class will typically support policies related to tax breaks and business related policies.

  • Simone

    You are intelligent. I can tell. Research and see what the Republican Party has done for Black people (school choice for that gifted little Black boy or girl in the hood who couldn't afford a better education or an improved economy thereby reducing unemployment rates for Black people, etc.). The Republican Party cares about Black people, all people actually but we don't vote-them in most of our cities to give them a chance. The Democrat Party has destroyed the Black family and tries to rip us of our morals. Magic Johnson, who is a strong Black man who builds Black businesses and opportunities gets less media coverage than his gender-fluid (whatever that means) son. There's a reason for that. A Democrat-run city is usually a hellhole. Look at Detroit for example. I could go on and on.

  • Renee26

    They weren't listening to his opinion when he said "George Bush don't care about black people" or "Beyonce made the best album of alllll time" shading Tayor's win. They were outraged and wanted him to STFU and sit down. ?

    I also laugh at fake azzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz Monica.

    You say that Ye need to reassess his relationship with President Trump,with the key words being "his relationship".These ignorant Black Democrats are too stupid for words and have major issues with any Black person who doesn't think as they do.

    Girl go somewhere and reassess your own relationship with your cheating hubby. She always put on that act of being a "holy roller" but child bye!

    Black democrats think they speak for all Black people but no you don't speak Black people who are smart enough to speak for self.

  • Black4life

    Never trust black people that represent the white news media. The white media selects who will speak on behave of black issues. White people will not tell me who/whom will speak on my behave. Black should form there on party and select candidate's that will truly have the black population back.

  • hottlanta

    Kanye ask dump since he love black folks so much why didnt he fight hard for his black republican friend parris dennard 2 keep his job the same way he fought for kavanaugh. They were both accused of the same thing.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. I dont see how black Republicans can be in such denial about that. The GOP hasn't been a negro-friendly party for many decades now.

  • Black4life

    During the election phase Don Lemon was all for Trump. Then, once Trump was elected he ignored Don Lemon. Now, Lemon is bitter...with salty ass. The white media sees Don Lemon as a harmless black gay male. He has served his purpose.

  • Renee26

    Yet if Ye wasn't so publicly vocal about his views (trying to convince masses to agree with his views) this wouldn't even be a discussion at all.

    Trying to take him down...by having opposing views or disagreeing with the things he posted and said...yeah ok

  • Black4life

    That bitch was playing up to white media for a job. She's not black and calling someone a token Negro. We have let these disrespectful ass get away with too much. If I see her I will explain to this bitch what she really is to white.

    And stop relying on CNN which goes out of their way to make sure that the cameras avoid all of the signs at Trump rallies that say things like “Proud Black Supporter” or “Blacks 4 Trumps.” CNN is trying to hard to perpetuate a notion that only white racists support Trump. You can either believe what someone is forcing you to believe or you can think for yourself and do your own unbiased research.

    For the record, the last recession started in 2008 and lasted almost Barack’s entire 2 terms. In fact, Trump ran under that fact that he could turn around the economy and bring back more jobs.
    Obama had a famous reply “How are you going to turn around the economy? How are you going to get more jobs? Are you just going to wave a magic wand?”

    I could turn on Trump tomorrow. I did for Barack after I voted and campaigned for him and he turned out to be just like all of the others. They could put Nancy Pelosi or Maxine Waters as the 2020 frontrunners and you will be out voting for them ???

  • Ozad

    you're deflecting..I didn't ask about food stamps I wanted evidence to the false statements you tossed out previously....LOL food stamp facts....a racist troll at that...p.s. tell me what race is on food stamps the most?

  • Ozad

    the article says 5.9% but like I said if you look deeper there are plenty of caveats...just like Fox news cherry picking numbers that are biased and never present an opposing and factual viewpoint

  • samuel severino

    Everyone knows whites are on food stamps the most. Not deflecting at all. I was just stating that those were the actual USDA numbers. My point is that I can turn to 20 things that Trump has done well and my sources will be unassailable while yours will be opinion pieces.

  • Ozad

    I'm an Independent , you are a right wing conservative hiding behind the Independent label..nothing you said screams independent thinking all right wing talking points

  • Ozad

    a writer wrote that piece, I would never believe any Government statements from the Trump whitehouse...he still believes his inauguration had the highest attendance and had the Government put that out officially...LOL

  • samuel severino

    You can’t look any deeper than the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Go hit up that current writer and see what he has to say now since the new numbers are out.

    YOU are the one cherry picking. Black unemployment was going down under Barack. It has gone down even lower under Trump. That is not something you can argue against. Go look at the BLS deeply like I did.

  • Ozad

    my point exactly it started with Obama..that what I wanted to hear..if you read my post I has issue with the statement Trump only started this so called prosperity

  • samuel severino

    Wait... you said Trump and his admin are doctoring the numbers from Bureau of Labor Statistics? Really? The BLS? And you expect me to believe that you are an Independent?

    I campaigned for Barack, I met Barack, I voted for Barack, my family and friends all cried when he was elected, I argued in support of him for 2 years, I sat out the second Obama term because I didn’t agree with him, Romney or anyone else excerpt for Ron Paul and then after finally coming around I voted for Trump. That sounds like a right wing conservative or an Independent who changes his mind based on what he sees, hears and reads?

  • TransMichelle

    The lies are in that foolish white liberal brainwashed head of yours. Look it up. "The comments were recorded in an interview with The Atlantic. The wide-ranging interview was based on Obama’s foreign policy over his eight years in office. During one portion of the interview, Obama said described Libya as a “mess” to the interviewer but behind closed doors called the country a “shit show.”

  • Ozad

    where are the impenetrable facts related to Trump approval numbers? stop deflecting and admit you can't back up that fallacious claim

  • samuel severino

    You believe a writer but not the BLS? The same entity that measures and tables the records for decades regardless of who is in office? The same entity who has to make sure their numbers hold up for decades? You believe that they are correct on their numbers for Obama but not correct on their numbers for Trump?

    Rasmussen is the most accurate and consistent since they do daily polls which minimize drastic variance swings.

  • Ozad

    from Republican pollster Rasmussen....widely accepted as an outlier...100's of other polls debunked that.....like I said smoke and mirrors instead of facts

  • Ozad

    False, Rasmussen is right leaning and mostly regarded as an outlier

  • Ozad

    no you can't, my statement was "Auntie not Rasmussen" find another poll that backs that up....no statistician worth their weight in gold would rely on just one poll

  • Ozad

    then why bring Breitbart and Drudge report talking points to the discussion.......Bullshit!!

  • dontgetblocked

    Black people can be just a cruel as a racist. That statement was ignorant and racist. I hate black people like these three. They don't speak for me. Kanye has the right to support President Trump and he shouldn't be attacked for it. I'm glad President Trump tweeted about this. It's sad that the white people are more uncomfortable with what these black fools said than black people.

  • dontgetblocked

    Some things you keep behind closed doors.

  • dontgetblocked

    Black people with sense support President Trump. We're employed thanks to him and got tax cuts.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Not even that, just on the plain fact he has mental issues disqualifies him immediately.

  • dontgetblocked

    I'm a black woman who proudly supports President Trump behind closed doors and in the voting booth. If you saw me in public, you'd never know because I don't want to be attacked like Kanye. I could be the woman sitting next to you in church. You never know.

  • dontgetblocked

  • dontgetblocked

    She's an idiot. I'm more concerned with those three coons sitting on television using the word "negro". They are far more embarrassing than some of Kanye's statements. CNN showed its true colors by airing that mess.

  • TransMichelle

    But Odumba had every nicca rapper up in the white house as a token because he dam sho didn't do anything for black folks but The Donald invites Kanye along with Kid Rock and that's supposed to be bad? Your problem is that you have an inferior complex towards white people I don't. Get a clue plantation bozo

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!! Had to be!

  • Elevated Soul

    I agree....

    Black Democrats are very oppressive toward any Black person who dares to think for self.Black democrats are the gatekeepers for their liberal masters.

    Blacks with slave mentalities love to tear down Blacks that think for self and those same token negro's will be the first one crying, if they feel Whites do it and in their minds,Whites are the only people that can be racist but I beg to differ.

    Blacks can be just as racist,they just don't have any power as it pertain to finance/politics and the educating sector....

  • SumthinSweeter

    Gawd! Have to give Sandra her credit. She has really been honing in on so many topics that I WISH I had the time to address more in depthly. Sooooo... Yes Kanye is a free thinker, but yes so are most mentally ill people. I HATE when "we" throw around the word Negro. Was it done to make this white man uncomfortable, of course... duh. Lastly, some black folks aint fukin with either party, Dems or Rebs. They both suck ass.

    Kanye is not crazy. He's media savvy, just like Madonna. Controversy keeps his name in the spotlight. The spotlight keeps his pockets fat. Personally, I think you should have limits on what you will do for money, but any man who would marry Kim, obviously has no limits.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Why must all black people think and speak the same? Folks are really butt hurt about Kanye. It's embarrassing. Whatever happened to agreeing to disagree? Geesh, black folks are so harsh.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    It's like black people be dead ass ready to fight or go to verbal war when you say 'I voted for Trump.' What is wrong with us? Not every negro is Democrat.

    These panelists are the real slaves to the demon-cratic party. I am off the plantation. I thank God President Trump is our President.

    Kanye is simply stating his truth...we are not a monolithic culture black people do not all agree on everything.

  • Jay Blossom

    FACT: He's laughing at Kanye because that use to be him as a lemon head. Kanye trolled around and got confused about what a free-thinker is and it's neither.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    So if she doesn't agree with every Republican talking point or support Trump she's a RINO?

    so are you saying that you just got a job when trump got into office??

  • the watcher

    it's not that you voted for old trumpy that some blacks get mad. its the fact that this president say's racist thing's out of his mouth.

  • the watcher

    how many of you blacks work for him in top spots in his administration (1) uncle tom name uncle ben carson.

  • MsJC

    Agreed! I registered this time around as an independent! Neither side has blacks best interest at heart, they only want you vote to continue whatever agenda they have set!

  • MsJC

    Most of what you said I thought sounded good, until you mentioned the school choice for kids. My question: Why not just fix up the schools in black neighborhoods with proper finances and good teachers, so that it is a good choice for minority kids? Why give money to another school via vouchers and take away from the black community? @nd the republican party does not care about blacks anymore than the Dems, they just want our votes to complete their twisted agendas.

  • MsJC

    By being an un-medicated Bipolar person means you are subject to extreme highs and lows with emotions. If Kanye would at least take the anti-psychotic medications he would be taken serious. There is no way I am listening to a un-medicated Bipolar with psychotic episodes person with serious considerations, about a mad man running the White House who thinks it's ok to grab women by the pu**y!

  • MsJC

    Right on!

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Define coon in your own words.

    Indeed. When you take the star of a homemade porno video and make her the mother of your kids you're already testing propriety. If his mother were still here none of this would be happening.

    you're right, the republicans own the Black man or woman's thoughts, minds, or votes. this trump guy you love so much wouldn't even rent his apartments to black folks and this trumpy guy who you love so much has how many top ranking black folks working in his administration ??? uncle koonye is nothing more than steven from django and i see we have alot of them running around.. what's wrong boss we sick? hey boss you make me feel like superman boss.

  • Simone

    Trump and his Father fought to not rent their apartments to low income/poor people, whether you were White, Black, or any other race. They did not want their apartments to turn into the slums. I lived in the hood growing up and my Father worked really hard to move us out. When we moved to a nicer neighborhood, I would have hated for it to turn into the slums. As for Kanye, he is Jamie Foxx (Django) sitting on that horse all free and proud, while Stephen (Samuel Jackson) is like all the Black people like Don Lemon who envy Kanye's courage, confidence and freedom to think and speak how he feels. How dare Kanye think that as a Black man he is free to support President Trump. The Democrat Party does not own the Black vote.

  • Brazen Beauty

    Hear we go again black men laughing and name calling Kanye. That in itself is a disgrace. Where is the support brothers?

  • Brazen Beauty

    How many butts did each of you kiss to get where you are? Stop judging newscasters! focus on the real problems in this country. When you really think about it you all are doing just what your masters want you to do to your people. You all are the worst UNCLES. BECAUSE YOU HAVE A DAILY PLATFORM AND YOU ALL USE IT TO.BELITTLE ANOTHER BROTHER. WHOSE.LAUGHING AT.YOU ALL!??

  • the watcher

    so are you saying that lower income people automatically turns their apts into SLUMS?? you're wrong like you're always wrong. trump would not rent his apartments to BLACK people period! they had a practice that if the person looking to rent one of his apts were black to write AA on the app so that they would know what color the person was fact! koonye is a coon uncle tom stephen from django and will always be. koonye can vote and support whomever he wants thats fine. but when you sit back and say slavery was a choice and you Stepin Fetchit and say i's loves you boss to a man who call black NFL player s.o.b's because they were peacefully protesting or call a whole race of people rapist and drug dealers or you call africa a sh3t hole country or saying you just grab women by their pu33ys i can go on and on. and lastly when you say that your father work hard to move you to a nicer home thats what black people were trying to do move their family into a nicer place to live only thing is your president didnt want them there. oh yeah low income / poor people couldn't afford his apts anyways so theses were well to do BLACK FLOKS that your old trumpy didn't want living in his apts. maybe you would have felt different if trump or someone else refused to rent your father an apt because of skin color.

  • the watcher

    the Republican Party owns you ! you do also know that just because one might be black they don't have to be a republican or democrat? but with your small way of thinking it's either republican or democrat.... why do you HATE YOURSELF AND YOUR RACE SO MUCH?

  • the watcher

    THE HOUND DOGS HAS BEEN REPLACED BY THE POLICE KILLING UNARMED PEOPLE OF COLOR. BUT THAT WOULDN'T CONCERN YOU. YOU ONLY CARE ABOUT WHAT BLACK'S SAY ABOUT YOU MASSA TRUMP.
