CNN To Launch All Black Panel Show Featuring Angela Rye, Bakari Sellers, April Ryan & Andrew Gillum
CNN is reportedly on track to kick off a brand new show with an all-black panel.
The idea came after the four appeared on “New Day With Alisyn Camerota and John Berman” during the Democratic debates last week, and got a pretty popular response.
During their appearance, they couldn’t help but laugh at Senator and Presidential hopeful Cory Booker’s delivery of what he said was a phrase in the Black community.
During the debate Booker said,
“There’s a saying in my community that you’re dipping into the Kool-Aid and you don’t even know the flavor.”
Ryan said in response,
“I have to say this. Senator Booker, you know I love you, man. But I could just see you going, oh, here comes my time. Here comes the Kool-Aid.”
“But with black phrases you don’t enunciate, like, every word.
He then corrected Booker and said,
“You all up in the Kool-Aid, and you don’t even know the flavor.”
One insider said,
“It was the most excitement on that morning show since Chris Cuomo left as co-anchor. CNN is fast-tracking talks … to develop it into a stand-alone show. The early chatter is that it could start as a weekend show that would rival MSNBC’s programming with Joy Reid, the Rev. Al Sharpton and Kendis Gibson.”
It looks like their chemistry is already on point.
