A CNN panel hosted by alleged journalist Don Lemon mocked mental health issues and used blatantly racist and derogatory language during a discussion about rap superstar Kanye West Tuesday evening.

The panel said West's embrace of President Donald Trump has turned him into the administrations "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,” said CNN contributor Tara Setmeyer.

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

Another guest, former Congressman Bakari Sellers, also hit Kanye using much of the same language.

“Kanye West is what happens when negroes don’t read,” said Sellers. “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.”

The entire vile exchanged was discussed during a segment on Thursday's edition of the Chicks on the Right. Click the link below to check it out:
