The mainstream media’s transparent quest to tarnish President-Elect Trump’s image by insisting his adviser and former Breitbart executive Stephen Bannon is a bigot has reached absurd new levels.
Liberal writer Charles Kaiser thinks that using racial slurs on live TV is just fine, as long as you do it to criticize President-elect Donald Trump.
Kaiser dropped the slur while noting that if Trump was serious about denouncing white supremacist rhetoric bandied by some of Trump’s supporters, he shouldn’t choose as a White House counselor a man who uses the word nigger.”

Kaiser’s poor choice of words clearly shocked Paris Denard, a black Trump supporter, and host Brooke Baldwin.
“Charles, hang on a second,” Baldwin cut in. “I appreciate you going through all of this but please don’t use the n-word on my show.”
“If you don’t want to support the Alt-Right, don’t choose as a White House counselor a man who uses the word n****r,” author Charles Kaiser said, referring to Bannon. “Wow,” a visibly shocked Baldwin responded.
“We’re done,” she said shortly afterward, ending the segment. “The more I’ve sat here and listened to the fact that someone used the N-word on this show. It is not OK. It is not OK, Charles Kaiser.”
Lifezette also picked up on the story saying,
A quick search by LifeZette has found that no such quote with the word attributed to Bannon exists, and there is no evidence he has ever used the word.
Despite the outrageous assertion, CNN, as of 4:15 p.m. Tuesday, ran no on-air correction to clarify that there is no public evidence Bannon has ever used the offensive slur.
Baldwin and Kaiser’s outrageous comments come the same day Trump himself defended Bannon from the mainstream media’s never-ending barrage of accusations of Bannon’s bigotry.
“If I thought he was a racist or Alt-Right or any of the things, the terms we could use, I wouldn’t even think about hiring him,” Trump told The New York Times Tuesday afternoon. “I think it’s very hard on him. I think he’s having a hard time with it. Because it’s not him,” he said.
Update: Kaiser later apologized for “misattributing” the quote to Steve Bannon.
He told the Washington Post that he meant to say that Trump Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions had used the N-word, not Bannon.
