We Called It: Don Lemon’s Lefty Questions from Last Night’s Debate

On Tuesday, NewsBusters asked how anybody could take Don Lemon seriously as a debate moderator, since the CNN host has used his show to relentlessly promote lefty policies and politicians, and launch invectives against Donald Trump and his supporters. 

That rage against Trump was on display at Tuesday night’s Democratic debate when Lemon actually asked Congressman Beto O’Rourke: “President Trump is pursuing a reelection strategy based in part, on racial division. How do you convince primary voters that you’d be the best nominee to take on President Trump and heal the racial divide in America?”

Lemon later doubled-down on that attack, as he asked Senator Amy Klobuchar: “What do you say to those Trump voters who prioritize the economy over the President’s bigotry?”

The bias was so bad from Lemon last night, even President Trump noticed, slamming the CNN Tonight host: “CNN’s Don Lemon, the dumbest man on television, insinuated last night while asking a debate ‘question’ that I was a racist, when in fact I am ‘the least racist person in the world.’ Perhaps someone should explain to Don that he is supposed to be neutral, unbiased & fair.”

Former Washington Post media critic and current FNC MediaBuzz host Howard Kurtz also called out Lemon, during Fox’s post-debate coverage: “Now Don Lemon, the liberal opinion host on the panel asked questions that were blatantly from the left promoting gun control and referring to President Trump as a racially divisive bigot.”

 

 

The following are Lemon’s most obnoxious questions from the left as aired on the July 30 CNN Democratic debate: 

DON LEMON: Let’s turn now to the issue of gun violence. There were three large-scale shootings this past week in America, at a park in Brooklyn, on the streets on Philadelphia and one that left three dead and 12 injured at a food festival in Gilroy, California. Governor - excuse me, Mayor Buttigieg, other than offering words of comfort, what’re you specially going to do to stop this epidemic of gun violence?
...
LEMON: Governor Bullock, how can Democrats trust you to be the leader on this fight for gun safety when you only changed your position to call for an assault weapons ban last summer?
...
LEMON: Senator Sanders, you said this in 2013, just months after the Sandy Hook massacre, and I quote here: “If you pass the strongest gun control legislation tomorrow, I don’t think it will have a profound effect on the tragedies we have seen.” Do you still agree with that statement today?
...
LEMON: We want to turn now to the issue of race in America. Congressman O’Rourke, President Trump is pursuing a reelection strategy based in part, on racial division. How do you convince primary voters that you’d be the best nominee to take on President Trump and heal the racial divide in America?
...
LEMON: Governor Hickenlooper, why are you the best nominee to heal the racial divide in America, please respond.
...
LEMON: Senator Klobuchar, what do you say to those Trump voters who prioritize the economy over the president’s bigotry?
...
LEMON: Mayor Buttigieg, you have been criticized for your handling of racial issues in your home city of South Bend, from diversity in the police force to housing policy. Given your record, how can you convince African-Americans that you should be the Democratic nominee?
...
LEMON: Speaking of reparations, Ms. Williamson, many of your opponents support a commission to study the issue of reparations for slavery. But you are calling for up to $500 billion in financial assistance. What makes you qualified to determine how much is owed in reparations?
...
LEMON: Senator Sanders, you don’t think cash payments are the best way to address this issue, but according to a new Gallup poll, 73 percent of African-Americans are in favor of cash payments to black Americans who are descendants of slaves. How do you respond to them?
