CNN host Don Lemon came completely unglued on Monday night as he blasted gun-toting protesters who are calling for the country to be reopened.

Lemon lost it on the protesters, who are just trying to ensure that officials don’t use the coronavirus pandemic to seize power, claiming that they are “slapping the faces” of healthcare workers on the front-lines.

“You’re out there with guns, with weapons strapped to your chest, saying, oh, you want to get — you’re fighting against the people who are telling you to stay at home, trying to save your lives, you’re upset with those people? In the meantime, there are people keeping your cities going, keeping your loved ones alive and you want to get a haircut?” Lemon exclaimed.

“Who the hell do you think you are?” he added. “What is wrong with people? I don’t understand.” After briefly acknowledging that Americans are fully within their rights to protest, Lemon returned to bashing them. “I don’t want to hear from those people who are out there protesting with guns, right, and that is threatening — a threatening look for people. You’re protesting with guns,” Lemon said. “Don’t— don’t criticize people who are taking a knee at a ball game, entertainment, saying, ‘I don’t want people protesting at a ball game,’ when people are who are peacefully protesting — don’t give me that when you’re out there protesting with guns and saying, ‘I want to get back to work, I want my liberty.'”

“Don’t be a hypocrite,” he added.

This came hours after ABC host Joy Behar compared the gun-toting protesters to “terrorists.”

“Why are you bringing guns to a rally? You want to call yourself protesters, leave your guns home. Those are terrorists who bring guns to things,” she said on Monday’s episode of “The View.”

It’s ironic that after years of supporting liberals who protest against President Donald Trump in every way imaginable, Lemon and Behar are “triggered” by conservatives who are simply protesting in the hopes of getting our country back to the way it was just a few weeks ago.

The conservative protesters aren’t asking for anything major; they just want to get our country back on the rails like it was before this pandemic, but this apparently is too much for Lemon to comprehend. The hypocrisy of the liberal media never ceases to amaze.
