CNN host Don Lemon believes that in the wake of the shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh and the serial pipe bomber that targeted Democrats, “white men” are the biggest terror threat in America.
It is the kind of rhetoric that earned Lemon the moniker of “dumbest man on television” from President Trump.
“We keep thinking that the biggest terror threat is something else, some people who are marching, you know, towards the border, like it’s imminent,” Lemon explained to the runner-up as dumbest man on television, Chris Cuomo.
“We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right,” he added.
Lemon even went so far as to wonder about a “white guy ban,” comparing it to President Trump’s travel ban to halt people from terror-harboring countries from entering America.
”We have to…realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized on the right..We have to start doing something about them.

Don Lemon ignores Islamic terror
Lemon and his cohorts at CNN have spent years downplaying terrorist attacks carried out by radical Islamic extremists in our nation, but suddenly want to focus on one group of people now that it involves white men.
Then there was the attack on cyclists and runners on a bike path in Manhattan. An attack that injured 11 at Ohio State University. Bombings in New York and New Jersey in 2016. Remember the Boston Marathon bombing, Don? Ever heard of 9/11?
Yet Democrats and the left-wing media ignored the clear and present danger offered by radical Islam.
@HillaryClinton This statement should be taught in psychology classes throughout our nation, as the definition of ‘delusional.’

Despite an extensive record of radical Islamic terror attacks, the media downplayed the threat. This is the same playbook they use to completely ignore the slew of left-wing terror attacks against conservatives.
Lemon’s comment is textbook racism
Imagine for one moment that a Fox News anchor took the very real violence that engulfs Chicago on a daily basis, where ‘black on black’ crime and murder thrives, and surmised that the biggest terror threat in America is ‘black men.’
Where do you think that person would be after an incendiary comment like that?
They’d be in the unemployment line, never to be heard from again.
Lemon, to the contrary, will continue to hold his job, will continue to be celebrated as a serious journalist on a network full of unserious minds, and will get a pass for such a remark.
President Trump was right – Lemon is “the dumbest man on television.”
Problem is, it’s perfectly fine when you’re employed by the dumbest network on television.
