Baldwin took author Charles Kaiser to task for using the slur while he was condemning President-elect Donald Trump's choice for chief White House strategist, Steve Bannon.

"Charles ... just hang on a second," Baldwin said. "Please don't use the N-word on my show."

"The more I've sat here and listened to the fact that somebody used the N-word on this show — it is not OK. It is not OK, Charles Kaiser," she continued.

"I never use the N-word except when I'm quoting someone who's been appointed by the President to serve in the Oval Office," Kaiser protested, to no avail.

Kaiser's reasoning didn't hold any water for the anchor.

"The claim that Mr. Bannon used the N-word, I've never heard of this, so there's that," an emotional Baldwin said, adding, "Take a break."

Baldwin later tweeted, "Whether you're quoting someone or not, using the N-word on my show is not OK. Period."

Watch Baldwin shut down her potty-mouthed guest in the video.
