In one thoroughly tasteless segment Monday, CNN's Don Lemon attempted to comment on President Barack Obama’s use of the n-word on “WTF with Marc Maron,” holding up a sign with the word in big, bold letters and asking "Does this offend you?”
The wonky race conversation prompted "Nightly Show" host Larry Wilmore to introduce a new segment on Tuesday night's program called "Calm Down Don Lemon!"
"Wow. You went literal race card, Don," Wilmore quipped after revisiting the Lemon clip.
"By the way, that is a very impressive card! Kudos to the CNN prop closet just to have that at the ready!" he said. "Hey can someone snag me that 'n*gger' card? Yeah, we're talking about race!"
