Imagine CNN running with a story based on anonymous sources that Barack Obama thought his children were stupid. Or the Clintons thought Chelsea was a moron. Unthinkable? Naturally. But with the Trump family, anything goes. On CNN Tonight on Tuesday, Don Lemon brought on McKay Coppins of The Atlantic to tout his tabloidish story about how Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump are furiously fighting each other to be president.
Black unemployment reached a record low of 5.5 percent in the month of August. While CNN Tonight host Don Lemon and his panel acknowledged the statistic Friday night, they did their best to downplay it and rejected the notion that President Trump deserved any credit for the strong economy. In addition, Lemon argued that when black voters go to the polls in 2020, they should prioritize the President’s “racist behavior” over the strong economy.
Over the past several days, the networks have delivered the latest example of the dominant liberal media suddenly taking notice of a normal government activity done by the Donald Trump administration and treating it as outrageous even though there was no media scrutiny when the same activity was also done by the Barack Obama administration.
August 28, 2014 might as well be known in liberal America as Tan Suit Day, that day where former President Obama wore a tan suit. On the five year anniversary of Tan Suit Day, liberal journalists and commentators on CNN and MSNBC took to the airwaves to reminisce about that day, which they claimed -- in contradiction of the facts -- that this was somehow "the biggest scandal of the entire Obama presidency."
CNN Tonight host Don Lemon criticized fellow CNN host Chris Cuomo Thursday night for bringing pro-Trump guest Kayleigh McEnany on his show the night before. Lemon argued CNN shouldn’t be a platform for “liars” like McEnany while he defended the media as truth-tellers who “apologize” and retract reports when they “get it wrong.”
CNN host Don Lemon joined his liberal panelists in ganging up on his one conservative guest on Monday night’s CNN Tonight over the idea that the economy was doing well. Rob Astorino of President Trump’s re-election campaign argued that the media was pushing a false narrative put out by Democrats that a recession was near, but the economy was actually stable. But the liberals at CNN insisted he was wrong, with one analyst even calling that idea a conservative “conspiracy.”
During Thursday’s edition of CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon and his panel discussed the controversy surrounding Stephen Ross, the billionaire owner of Equinox and SoulCycle, over his decision to host a fundraiser for President Trump. Despite the fact that Ross also owns the complex known as Hudson Yards that CNN just moved to, Lemon and most of his panel trashed Ross's decision to host a to host a fundraiser for President Trump. In addition, Lemon rushed to defend political correctness, calling it “life and death” to many people.
According to the “mainstream media,” whatever President Trump does is wrong. If he wants to visit the two cities where mass shootings took place last weekend, he should not do that while the people there are in mourning. If he still goes and dares to refer to himself and his staff while praising the actions of the medical personnel treating the victims, that’s wrong as well. Not surprisingly, that was the case when Don Lemon, host of the weekday program CNN Tonight, criticized Trump on Wednesday evening by stating: “It’s not about you. It’s not about YOU. For once!”
Disgraced former news anchor Dan Rather has been enjoying a lengthy comeback with the liberal media propping him up for being an outspoken member of the anti-Trump resistance. He was welcomed by race-baiting CNN host Don Lemon on CNN Tonight Monday, to explain why the press needed to stop quoting the President, and instead, psychoanalyze what he says.
The past couple of weeks have brought the latest example of liberal news outfits like CNN and MSNBC suddenly taking notice of a recurring problem in immigration enforcement under President Donald Trump's administration which also happened during past administrations, including that of Barack Obama. A number of shows pounced on the story of natural-born American citizen, Francisco Galicia, who was detained by CBP and handed over to ICE in a process that took over three weeks because of suspicions that he was an illegal immigrant, in spite of him having his birth certificate on him, as a number of news reports suggested that his detention was racially motivated, with much of the coverage omitting aspects of the story which help explain why the detention happened in the first place.
In a shameful display Monday night, CNN host Don Lemon viciously attacked his guest, Pastor Bill Owens, for daring to meet with President Trump. Lemon progressively got nastier with his antagonistic questioning when Owens wouldn’t call the President, racist. Lemon even went so far as to attack the pastor’s Christian faith and character.
On Tuesday's CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon and CNN terrorism analyst Juliette Kayyem suggested that Fox News was to blame for right-wing terrorism in the U.S., and that it gives a platform to racism, as the two discussed reports that such violence is a bigger problem in the U.S. than terrorism from other sources.
