Ignorant CNN anchor

She didn't know that the most likely home language of an Indian is Hindi.  Sanskrit is an ancient language

Many people are giving CNN some heat this morning after two anchors asked a national spelling be champion to spell “covfefe” and then went too far with a racist joke aimed at the twelve year old of South Asian descent.

In an on air interview, CNN anchors, Alisyn Camerota and Chris Cuomo, asked Ananya Vinay, the recent Scripps National Spelling Bee champion to spell “covfefe”. For those who recall, earlier this week, our articulate President coined this word to discuss how he was being treated by the press.

That’s not the shocking part of this interview, however. What was shocking was co-anchor Alisyn Camerota’s blatant display of white privilege vis-a-vis a twelve year old AMERICAN girl of Asian descent.

After asking Vinay to spell “covfefe”, Camerota then goes on to give some origin of the word “covfefe” and says this to Vinay:

But it is a nonsense word but we’re not sure that it’s root is in Sanskrit which is probably what you’re used to using.

First of all, newsflash to the CNN anchor— nobody really speaks Sanskrit anymore. It’s like telling an Italian “it’s not like Latin, that you’re probably used to speaking.”

I’ve said it before and I will say it again— it’s not okay to make racist jokes, especially when you are targeting someone who is not of the same race.

It’s especially not acceptable to make racist jokes when you are the blonde-haired anchor of a national news network and you are interviewing a girl who could be the same age as your daughter.

Not so sure about your assumptions regarding her philosophical background.
She might be a liberal, but she did spend 16 years at Fox - so, who knows?

I apologise for being off-topic but...
Apparently we need to call this pregnant person a man?!?

The world truly is crazy. You can demand to be called whatever you want - but biology keeps inconveniently pointing out that it just doesn't make it so.

Mr. Ray's source for this article is the Huffington Post, a left wing news site. How can anyone believe what a liberal rag says?
