On Tuesday, anti-Trump CNN host Don Lemon said that those who stand with former President Donald Trump have no right to tell others to respect the police.
Lemon made his comments on his CNN program “Tonight.”
After showing the video that was presented on Tuesday of the Capitol Hill attack by the House impeachment managers, Lemon said, “Blue Lives Matter, huh?”
The video showed some of the mob action as the protests turned violent. Police officers who tried to hold protesters back were injured as protesters tried to break police lines and access outer doors to the Capitol.
Seeming to talk to Trump supporters, Lemon continued, “Law and order, law and order, respect the flags, respect law enforcement. Why don’t you just comply?”
“Don’t you dare even say that again if you can stand by after that video and give Donald Trump, of all people, Donald Trump… and his mob a pass,” Lemon said.
The CNN host then implied anyone who supports Trump has no right to defend “law and order” and the police again.
“If you can do that, I don’t ever want to hear that again,” Lemon said. “I don’t want to hear that from you.”
“I don’t want to hear family values from you,” he went on. “I don’t want to hear respect police officers from you. I don’t want to hear it.”
Lemon insisted that Trump backers lacked any moral standing to demand moral behavior of others.
“No moral high ground to stand on,” Lemon said. “Look who is on your side there. There have been a lot of lies.”
“We’ve been warning you about all the lies,” Lemon finished.
Isn’t Don Lemon a personality on a cable outlet that spent years promoting the Russian collusion hoax?
Journalist Glenn Greenwald reported in 2017, “Three prominent journalists resigned Monday night after the network was forced to retract and apologize for a story linking Trump ally Anthony Scaramucci to a Russian investment fund under congressional investigation.”
“That article — like so much Russia reporting from the U.S. media — was based on a single anonymous source, and now, the network cannot vouch for the accuracy of its central claims,” Greenwald noted.
Don Lemon was part of the Trump-Russia conspiracy chorus for a very long time.
Greenwald observed of the 2017 CNN story, “Embarrassments of this sort are literally too numerous to count when it comes to hyped, viral U.S. media stories over the last year about the Russia Threat.”
Additionally, CNN was the subject of a massive lawsuit over their false reporting of Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann.
Sandmann and his fellow students were blasted by the media for wearing MAGA hats at the 2019 March for Life rally in Washington, D.C., where they were confronted by counterprotesters.
CNN personalities Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo blamed the students.
Lemon stated, “The MAGA hat carries a certain connotation that provokes a conditioned reaction from many people, especially from marginalized people… Their chaperones should be keenly aware of that. Those kids should know that. And let’s say that the kids didn’t because they are kids, their chaperones should be responsible enough to educate them.”
Sandmann would subsequently sue CNN for $275 million dollars, and the network later settled for an undisclosed amount.
Don Lemon has no right or moral standing to correct other about “lies” or most anything else.
