Klavan: Kanye West Exposes The Left

Bestselling author and Daily Wire podcast host Andrew Klavan took it to CNN on Friday's episode of "The Andrew Klavan Show." Kanye West's meeting with President Trump, he explained, accomplished one great thing for the country: it exposed the leftist media's true colors.

"So Kanye West hugged the President, that's the thing that drove everybody crazy. That was the moment, that's the thing that drove them over the edge," Klavan said.

Klavan particularly zeroed in on CNN hosts Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon for their over-the-top language criticizing West, while also highlighting the rapper's persistence in taking on the Left. After playing clips from "stupid" Cuomo and "awful" Lemon, Klavan offered his perspective on Trump's meeting with Kanye.

"One of the reasons I hope that Trump brings more black people into the conservative fold is because we do want to hear from them, we do want to know what is going on," he said. "I'm perfectly willing to accept that there are some ways in which the life of a black guy in America is different than the life of a white guy, really willing to accept that, and if there are problems, we want to offer conservative solutions. But what we don't want to do is turn people into victims, make people dependent and make people lock them into a philosophy because of the color of their skin, that is incredibly racist."

So Kanye West hugged the President, that's the thing that drove everybody crazy. That was the moment, that's the thing that drove them over the edge. So let's go over to CNN, where Tweedledum (Chris Cuomo) and Tweedle-even-stupider (Don Lemon) we're talking about this. I've got to go to Chris Cuomo first because that may win some kind of Emmy for one of the stupidest moments on television:

Chris Cuomo: "My curiosity wasn't about what came out of Kanye's mouth, my wonder went to what was going on in Trump's head. Let's take a look at him, here's my educated guess, okay? Other than a warm serotonin flush of happy hormone, imaginary headlines: 'blacks love Trump', 'he's blacker than Obama!' I certainly agree, this is a cartoonish situation, but look at Trump here yet again - 'yeah, Superman - sure I am, I can do anything, I can save people.' I wonder if images of Hurricane Michael came into his head then, the people that do need saving, and here he is."

Klavan: "This is Chris Cuomo reporting from inside the head of the President, ladies and gentlemen. I'm inside the head of the President reading his mind, I've got some racist thoughts going on." What the hell is he talking about!? But if that's not stupid enough and you want some hate? You got to go to Don Lemon-head:

Don Lemon: "What I saw was a minstrel show today, him in front of all of these white people, mostly white people, embarrassing himself and embarrassing Americans, but mostly African Americans. Because every one of them is sitting either at home or with their phones watching this, cringing. I couldn't even watch it, I had to turn the television off because it was so hard to watch him sitting there being used by the President of the United States. The President of the United States exploiting him, and I don't mean this in a disparaging way, exploiting someone who needs help, who needs to back away from the cameras, who needs to get offstage, who needs to deal with his issues."

Klavan: What a racist piece of garbage this guy is, really he is awful. One of the reasons I hope that Trump brings more black people into the conservative fold, is because we do want to hear from them, we do want to know what is going on. I'm perfectly willing to accept that there are some ways in which the life of a black guy in America is different than the life of a white guy, really willing to accept that, and if there are problems we want to offer conservative solutions. But what we don't want to do is turn people into victims, make people dependent and make people lock them into a philosophy because of the color of their skin, that is incredibly racist.

...This has been created, this didn't happen accidentally, this was created by the media, this was created by the Democrat Party, this is not an accidental thing. They're telling people black people are dumb, they're poor, they're primitive, they can't handle anything, they don't know how to work the internet, it's like they've never met anybody, it is like they never met anybody with different color skin, that is where it comes from, this condescension. It is all on one side, if more black people came over and became conservatives they would find answers to problems that might be in their community that include their freedom, their independence, their right to free thought and respect, and respect for them as individuals, not as black people. Because who cares if you're black or white, it is respect for you as an individual.
