Don Lemon and Sunny Hostin argued over President Obama’s use of the word n*gger during an interview with Marc Maron. Obama used the word in addressing racism in America, but Sunny Hostin couldn’t understand that point. Well, Don took it to a whole other level when he started his show with a n-word sign and a Confederate flag. Lord, who at CNN cleared this fool to do this? Is he auditioning for a stint on Fox News?
President Obama’s exact words on racism: “Racism, we are not cured of it,’ Obama said. ‘And it’s not just a matter of it not being polite to say n*gger in public. That’s not the measure of whether racism still exists or not. It’s not just a matter of overt discrimination. Societies don’t, overnight, completely erase everything that happened 200 to 300 years prior.”
Here’s the reaction to Don Lemon’s props on Twitter:
