    CNN hosts makes 'racist' comment to 12-year-old Spelling Bee Champion

    A CNN host is accused of making what some are saying is a "racist" remark to 12-year-old Scripps Spelling Bee Champion Ananya Vinay who the host said likely misspelled a word on air because "it's root is not in Sanskrit, which is what you're probably used to using."

    Hosts Alisyn Camerota, who made the comment, and Chris Cuomo jokingly asked her to spell 'covfefe,' what Ms Camerota called a "nonsense word."

    Ananya, who is of Indian origin, was born and raised in Fresno, California and had just been named the 2017 champion the previous evening. An Indian-American child has won the competition every year since 2008, and Ananya is the 13th overall to do so...

    You alt right racists can shut up since you don't know what is racism because you keep doing it.

    Or you do, and you don't care that you are racists.

    Everyone is a racist in some ways, The Clintons used the Nizzer word many times but was not called or reported just ask the kitchen staff at the Whitehouse.

    A reasonable person might give her the benefit of a doubt and believe that she might be stupid enough to think that sanskrit is actually the language of India.


    But these fuckers never give US the benefit of a doubt, so fuck her.
