CNN anchor cries after guest says the N-word on air

On Tuesday, CNN host Brooke Baldwin ended a segment nearly in tears after a guest said the N-word on air.

Baldwin had black GOP consultant Paris Dennard and journalist Charles Kaiser on her show during a discussion of president-elect Donald Trump’s cabinet picks, and Kaiser used the word because he was quoting the very people who will soon be in the White House.

““If you don’t want to support the alt-right don’t choose as a White House counselor a man who uses the word ni**er. Whose wife says that he did not want his daughters to go to a school with too many Jews. And don’t choose as an Attorney General a man who calls the NAACP an un-American organization,” Kaiser said of strategist Steve Bannon.

“I appreciate you going through all this,” Baldwin broke in, “but please don’t use the n-word on my show.”

Kaiser explained that he doesn’t use the word usually except when he is quoting someone who is about to enter the White House, which is “a disgusting moment in our history.”

“There’s a part of me that feels you can’t fully express the shocking nature of the first appointments of Donald Trump without using the actual words used by these appointees,” he said.

But Baldwin ended the segment near tears, later going on Twitter to insist, “Whether you’re quoting someone or not, using the n-word on my show is not okay. Period.”
