Kanye West is headed back to the White House, and CNN is none too happy about it.
The President is scheduled to sign the Music Modernization Act while "Ye" is at the White House. The bill - which the House and Senate have already passed - updates licensing and royalties to artists, songwriters and producers for music played on streaming services.
"Ye" will sit down for a separate lunch meeting with Trump, where they'll reportedly talk gang violence in Chicago, prison reform and manufacturing jobs.
"Kanye West is what happens when negroes don't read."
Yep. A CNN panel on Tuesday night mocked Kanye West for being the “token black” Trump supporter.
"Anchor Don Lemon and guests Bakari Sellers and Tara Setmayer laughed with one another as they mocked West’s intellect, his mental health, and his desire for fame. The fourth guest, Scott Jennings, sat uncomfortably during the exchange and tried not to contribute.
'Kanye West is what happens when negroes don’t read, and we have this now,' Sellers said. 'And now Donald Trump is going to use it and pervert it, and he’s going to have somebody who can stand with him and take pictures.'
'Now all of a sudden, Kanye, because he’s put on a MAGA hat and 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? This is ridiculous. And no one should be taking Kanye West seriously,' Setmayer said, adding that West 'clearly' has mental health issues."
WIBC hosts Nigel and Rob Kendall broke down CNN's blatant display of racism on Wednesday's show:
"Well, could you imagine if Fox News talked about a black liberal like that? Can you imagine the meltdown the left would have? This is all part of the narrative that all entertainers in Hollywood have to be liberal, and Kanye West just throws that in their face. This is Uncle Tom type stuff at its very worst. And I think they're afraid of Kanye."
"It goes back to what Clarence Thomas said, this is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks."
