CNN reporter Leyla Santiago discussed sexually-charged subject matter during CNN’s New Year’s Eve coverage on Monday night in front of a small child. With the young girl standing right behind her, Santiago asked people about the color of their underwear and said wearing red is good for “the love.”
“I do want to talk about one more tradition,” Santiago said. “And that is, if you wear red underwear, if you wear red underwear, it is good for the love … of 2019.”
Santiago proceeded to creepily ask a man standing near her what color underwear he was wearing as the little girl stood behind her and watched her every move.
CNN’s Brooke Baldwin and Don Lemon — who are often behind many of the network’s more absurd moments — appeared on a split-screen where they talked about not wearing any underwear.
Santiago then started handing out red underwear and threw red underwear at the camera crew.
