CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin was visibly shaken after one of her guests, homosexual author Charles Kaiser, openly said the n-word on national TV, claiming that Trump chief strategist Steve Bannon — without any supporting evidence, regularly uses the word.
“If you don’t want to support the alt-right, don’t choose as a White House counselor a man who uses the word n***r,” Kaiser said in an accusatory tone with the n-word rolling off his tongue with such ease and comfort that you have to wonder how regularly he uses the highly hateful and racist word.
“Wow,” a disgusted Brooke Baldwin said, looking down at her desk in embarrassment and anger.
Ironically, as progressive leftist Charles Kaiser, who wrote the afterward for a 2012 edition of Merle Miller’s, “On Being Different: What it Means to Be a Homosexual,” was levying his vicious smear he was joined by a Trump supporter, Paris Dennard, who happens to be black and looked on with raised brow.
As he continued his unhinged diatribe, Baldwin, still in shock, interrupted.
“Just…hang on a second,” she said, directing her comments toward Kaiser. “I appreciate him going through all of this but please don’t use the n-word on my show.”
“I’m sorry, well, I never use the n-word, except when I’m quoting someone who’s been appointed by the president to serve in the Oval Office since this is such a disgusting moment in our history,” Kaiser replied.
After some back-and-forth between Kaiser and Dennard, who remained respectful, Baldwin piped in again to bring the unfortunate segment to a close.
“Alright gentlemen…we’re done, we’re done. I appreciate both your voices. I am still–the more I’ve sat here and listened to the fact that somebody used the n-word on this show—it is not OK,” she said as she took a deep breath, sighing out loud.
“It is not okay,” Baldwin repeated for emphasis. “Charles Kaiser, I respect you. I enjoy having you on as a guest, but um, not OK,” she scolded. “By the way, the claim that Mr. Bannon used the n-word, I’ve never heard of this, so there’s that. Take a break.”
Baldwin’s eyes seemed to be watering up as she went to break, obviously disgusted at the whole ordeal.
