CNN has done it again with more race baiting even after actor Jussie Smollett’s hate crime hoax was exposed and to no surprise, it was on Don Lemon’s show.
Lemon’s guests included NBA Hall Of Famer and former LA Lakers Great Kareem Abdul Jabar and Kierna Mayo who is the former editor of the black Ebony Magazine, both of whom are oozing with racial animosity and especially when it involves the president.
Invoking inflammatory language that would have once been taboo for a nationally televised program, Mayo suggested that Trump views blacks as being unintelligent and subhuman while Lemon did nothing to reign in her lunacy.
“But I don’t really think that (Donald) sees Black people as fully human.” I agree with you one hundred percent, @kiernamayo. And also on all else that you say here, including the last sentence you speak. pic.twitter.com/oKMYhGacxD

Kierna Mayo, the former editor-in-chief at Ebony Magazine, has accused President Donald Trump of being a “racist” who doesn’t see black people as “fully human” following his comments about Spike Lee.
Mayo appeared on a CNN panel alongside basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to discuss the president’s tweet about the director in the wake of the latter’s acceptance speech at the Oscars on February 24 with host Don Lemon.
Discussing the speech with Lemon, Mayo described her surprise at Lee’s remarks, but only because she felt he was actually “tucking it in” and the director’s attacks are normally phrased “a little more clearly than that.”
In response to Trump’s follow-up tweet, Mayo added: “This is a president who knows he’s on the wrong side of history,” reported Mediate. “So you’ve hit the dog. In other words, he’s barking because he knows that he exemplifies all that Spike and his courageous film are really standing against.”
Lemon then asks Mayo if Trump “believes he’s somehow solved racism and this is the best time ever for African-Americans” by repeatedly citing historically low black unemployment rates which have occured during his presidency.
“I don’t really think the president sees black people as fully human,” Mayo replied. “I don’t think he sees us as having agency, intelligence, as noted by his comment about Spike, you know he [Trump] wishes he could read.”
Watch it HERE.
It’s just another variation on the same garbage that Obama defenders relied on when the ex-president’s policies were legitimately criticized when critics quickly denounced opposing viewpoints as being “racist” and it worked like a charm.
It still does on CNN but at some point may begin to have diminishing returns largely due to it being a flat out lie that the POTUS hates black people and that in terms of economics and low unemployment, African-Americans have never had a better friend than Donald J. Trump and as a result, many may not be quite so willing to vote Democrat going forward.
