On Friday's CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon hyped a Washington Post op ed by liberal author Patti Davis -- the daughter of former President Ronald Reagan -- and gave her a forum to compare the Trump administration to Adolf Hitler's Nazi Germany. Not mentioned by the CNN host is that it is hardly surprising that Davis would be critical of a right-leaning President since she has a long history of being a liberal activist who was critical of her parents.
During the ongoing fallout over Omarosa Manigault Newman’s attention-seeking book tour, Georgetown University professor Michael Eric Dyson slammed the President for calling the author a “dog” in a tweet and went so far as to accuse Trump of using “KKK language” in his attacks. Tuesday afternoon on CNN, Dyson accused Trump of “evoking an entire history of assault against black people with dehumanizing language” while responding to the claims made by the author of Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House.
On Sunday, Washington, D.C. was all but shut down as roughly 25 white supremacists emerged from whatever crevasses they hide in, and marched to Lafayette Park on the anniversary of last year’s deadly rally in Charlottesville. They were dwarfed by hundreds of counter-protesters, violent agitators, and members of the press. CNN hosts Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon had much to say on the matter.
Liberal director Spike Lee took advantage of an interview on Thursday's Anderson Cooper 360 to promote his new movie, BlacKkKlansman, which the filmmaker claimed is “not just a history lesson” even though it takes place during the 1970s.As you might expect, it didn’t take long for the discussion to degenerate into attacks on GOP President Donald Trump, whose “toxic” comments and acts have led Lee to refer to him as “Agent Orange,” a man who is leading “a rise to the right” not just in America, but worldwide as well.
Tuesday’s special election for Ohio’s 12th Congressional District was a nail-biter, and as of this blog's publication, Republican candidate Troy Balderson was ahead by 0.9 percent of the vote with 100 percent reporting. And in the midst of the exhausting election night coverage, host Don Lemon took a few seconds of their CNN Tonight analysis to thank the Democrats gathered at candidate Danny O’Connor’s HQ for watching his network.
On Monday's The Last Word show, MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson hyperbolically claimed that President Donald Trump "attacks any and all black people who weren't bojangling for him" and declared that the President views "black people who do nice things" as "enemies" during a discussion of the President's recent attacks on CNN host Don Lemon and the NBA's LeBron James.
During the handoff between CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time and CNN Tonight on Monday, Don Lemon unleashed his fury as he chastised President Trump and his supporters as “people who will lie, steal, and cheat, lie to their mother.” The tirade comes after the President questioned his intelligence on Friday, liberal journalists called Trump racist because of it, and fellow CNN host Chris Cuomo egged him on.
On Friday's CNN Tonight, during a discussion of a United Nations agency attacking President Donald Trump over his criticisms of media who are biased against his administration, CNN presidential historian Douglas Brinkley claimed that the President "is really trying to incite violence against reporters," and went on to laud journalists like host Don Lemon, predicting that those who "stood up to a President acting like a despot" will be respected by history.
To put it bluntly, April Ryan’s dislike of Sarah Huckabee Sanders or anyone opposed to her has arguably reached an unseemly territory. Appearing on Wednesday’s CNN Tonight, the American Urban Radio Networks correspondent dismissed the harassment and threats against the White House Press Secretary and melodramatically surmised that Jim Acosta’s “life...was in jeopardy” at Tuesday’s Trump rally.
On his show July 30, CNN’s Don Lemon lectured the right and Trump supporters for ignoring racism in this country, calling the claims that he creates and adds to the problems, “bullshit.” This of course coming from the same network who attacks the right and the president for pointing out the problem of media bias.
NBA star Lebron James would never sit across from President Trump, but he would sit down with “Barack.” In an interview on CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon asked the basketball player what he would say to the current President if he were sitting in the room. James claimed that it would never happen.
Dan Rather appeared on CNN Tonight on Friday. Host Don Lemon engaged the broadcaster in a discussion centered around who could be more outraged at the Trump presidency. Rather took the lead when he called the current administration “straight out of Orwell.”
