During a live broadcast of anchor Brooke Baldwin's show on CNN, tensions mounted between her and Charles Kaiser, an author and blogger.
While criticizing Donald Tump's appointment of Steve Bannon, Kaiser said, “If you don’t want support of the alt right, don’t choose as a White House counselor a man who used the word ‘nigger,’ whose wife says he did not want his daughters to go to a school with too many Jews…”
“Charles, hold on a second. I appreciate you going through all of this, but please don’t use the n-word on my show," said Baldwin.
“I’m sorry,” Kaiser responded. “I never use the n-word except when I’m quoting someone who has been appointed by the president to serve in the Oval Office, since this is such a disgusting moment in our history.”
Was it appropriate for Baldwin to shut down Kaiser, or should we start allowing the news to get uncomfortable in an effort not to normalize Trump and his team?
