A CNN panel on Don Lemon’s show Tuesday night went after Kanye West ahead of his meeting this week with President Trump, describing him as a poor role model for the black community.

“Kanye West is what happens when negroes don’t read,” CNN commentator Bakari Sellers said, apparently referencing a Chris Rock stand-up routine from the 1990s. Sellers added that West does not have the depth to understand the issues with the Trump presidency.

Another panel member, Tara Setmayer, said West should not be taken seriously and has become the “token negro of the Trump administration.”

“Listen, black folks are about to trade Kanye West in the racial draft,” Setmayer said, adding, “[Kanye’s] an attention whore, like the president.”

West’s wife, reality TV star Kim Kardashian West, met with Trump on prison reform over the summer.
