What happens when a liberal says something offensive to another liberal? Liberals are typically the sensitivity police, so it’s safe to say that such a situation is either incredibly awkward or wildly entertaining… heck, maybe even both. This recently happened on CNN, when an anti-Trump guest made the mistake of dropping the n-word in front of host Brooke Baldwin.
Charles Kaiser, white anti-Trump liberal, appeared with Paris Dennard, a black Trump supporter, on Baldwin’s show. Kaiser tried to illustrate that Trump’s chief executive, Steve Bannon, is a racist. And he inexplicably chose to do so by using the n-word, something that caused both Baldwin and Dennard to react immediately with shock.
“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,” Kaiser said.
And then there's this. A CNN guest, reciting the many examples of Trump aligning himself with unsavory characters, drops the n-word. pic.twitter.com/9Iom6cOpNU

“Wow,” Baldwin said. Kaiser seemed to immediately realize his mistake and desperately tried to defend himself by saying that he “never” uses the n-word… unless he’s quoting someone, in which case, it’s evidently okay. But Baldwin clearly didn’t agree with his logic. She ended up cutting the interview short.
“We’re done. We’re done,” she said. “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.”
Baldwin also pointed out that she has never before heard the claim that Bannon uses the n-word before. She then cut to a commercial, visibly upset.
Maybe it’s not such a good idea to accuse someone else of being a racist while using racist terms yourself.
