CNN's Kyra Phillips Calls Republican Contributor the C Word Twice


Did she just call her a “cunt” twice? The Commie News Network anchor discusses the battleground states with Leslie Sanchez and Roland Martin. Kyra Phillips, an average undereducated CNN anchor, called a female Republican contributor a cunt two times. I’m sure when Kyra first applied for her job, her ability to use her mouth to speak wasn’t a factor. There are better uses for a dirty mouth like her's in a job interview.

We all know the folks at the "most respected name in news" are mostly liberals but now this video just show us with the best Freudian slip ever. Kyra Phillips recently slipped when introducing CNN political contributor Leslie Sanchez. She did it, not once, but twice. Kyra Phillips had a Freudian slip and refers to a female Republican analyst by the “C” word…twice.

CNN's Kyra Phillips must of had another bad day. Remember when she was heard live on CNN going to the bathroom during President Bush's address to the nation on the anniversary of Katrina?

Was it a slip up or
do you think that Kyra Phillips was secretly letting the TV world know how she really feels about Leslie Sanchez, Republican Strategist and CNN Political Contributor or as Kyra calls her cunt-cunt-Contributor?

Back Story:

On August 29, 2006, during a CNN broadcast of President George W. Bush's speech on the first anniversary of Hurricane Katrina's landfall, Phillips' microphone was left on while she was in the bathroom. Portions of a personal conversation were broadcast live for over a minute and a half, during which Phillips offered advice on men, criticized her sister-in-law for being a "control freak," and praised her husband. The conversation audio was mixed with the President's audio feed and both were discernible. Daryn Kagan broke into Phillips' rant with an audio recap of Bush's speech. CNN immediately apologized for the on-air gaffe.

On January 30, 2008, Phillips joked about making a "reverse oreo" with black co-host Don Lemon and white female colleague Gerri Willis. Phillips used the term with sexual overtones (stating, "yeah, good time"), much to the "visual embarrassment" of Willis.
