WATCH: Richard Spencer Says It’s Time To ‘Make White Privilege Great Again’

Richard Spencer made a star turn on primetime Sunday night, declaring on CNN that he wants to “bathe in white privilege” and “make it great again.”

The ‘alt-right’ founder was appearing on the first episode of “United Shades of America,” a new show hosted by black comedian W. Kamau Bell, when he made his incendiary remarks.

“We bring a level of civilization. We are more interested in power, we’re more interested in exploration and domination. I just want to bathe in white privilege,” he said to Bell.

He also offered sexist comments about women, telling Bell, “It’s a man’s game. Women are more suited to maintaining the household.”
