    Herschel Walker calls for CNN to take Don Lemon off air

    Former NFL running back Herschel Walker characterized a recent CNN segment about Kanye West’s support of Donald Trump as “despicable” and said he wondered why anchor Don Lemon and commentators Bakari Sellers and Tara Setmayer aren’t taken “off the air.”

    A segment of “CNN Tonight” received sharp criticism Tuesday for remarks about the rapper’s support of the president that critics say are racist.


    In the segment, Mr. Sellers said, “Kanye West is what happens when $#@!es don’t read,” and Ms. Setmayer calling West “the token $#@!” of the administration.


    Mr. Lemon laughed throughout the comments. Mr. Sellers, Ms. Setmayer and Mr. Lemon are all black.

    After the swift first round of criticism, Mr. Walker added his thoughts Thursday on Twitter:

    If it were Fox it would be a no-brainer. Since it isn’t, nothing will be done.

    Left wing racism is acceptable to lefties.
    Liberalism (noun): when over-privileged white people rule society by pretending to care about the plight of minorities.

    There is the leftist bigotry on display with what some consider a News Source. Lemonhead has made comments about Kanye before.


    What I find funny is that those leftist mopes think Trump is racist and have said so openly before the cameras. Then yesterday MSDNC and Chris Matthews stated that white people wont vote for a racist.


    And yet, here the left calls Trump supporters racists. Call Trump racist. That people who voted for Trump were racist.


    The left is getting real good at talking out both sides of their mouth. Tho they can not really be good at that, due to talking out their $#@! 80% of the time.

    CNN has sunk so low. They began as a professional news organization. Now they appear as if their goal, from their point of view, is to out-fox FOX. Although FOX does not use racism to make its points.

    Msnbc is far ahead of CNN ratings and Fox blows MSNBC out of the water.

    Well , they are semi protected as liberals. It goes like this.
    1) Blacks can use and form of the N work they wish at any time for any or no reason
    2) Non black libs can use it to some degree as long as they do so to bash other non-blacks
    3) Normal non blacks simply cannot use any variation of the word.


    Sounds a lot like racism don't it? I'm sure the article was a "real piece of literary work"

    Not like the racist hosts on CNN. Tucker gets his facts right even if he gets over-excited.

    Being racist or not has nothing to with getting facts right. Those are two different issues.
