Sometimes you have to feel bad for CNN’s Don Lemon from what I hear he’s not a bad person. But viewers can’t really tell if he is purposely being biased or just that he is a few cans short of a six-pack, if his brain was a computer he’d constantly be showing an error 404 message. When he isn’t saying something unintentionally outlandish, he is skewing the news.
During the presidential race Lemon cut off Kurt Schlichter’s microphone because the columnist accused Hillary Clinton of enabling hubby Bubba’s misogyny. Lemon thought that Schlichter’s comments were evidence of his guest’s misogyny. But during a live New Year’s Eve broadcast Lemon blurted to Kathy Griffin that she had a “Nice Rack.” When the sensitive Lemon interviewed a guest who claims to be one of Bill Cosby’s victims, Lemon asked her why she didn’t bite Cosby– use her teeth “as a weapon” when he forced her to perform oral sex.
Not all of Lemon’s miscues are misogynistic, for example he once accused the right of making Al Sharpton a bogeyman. Sharpton incited two anti-Semitic riots in NYC, one could legitimately say that Al Sharpton made Al Sharpton a bogeyman. When some adult lefties beat up a Donald Trump supporter, Lemon didn’t blame the perpetrators rather he said their action was based on “bad parenting.”
Lemon’s latest incident of stupidity was in reference to the Jeff Sessions/Russia incident. Some (like yours truly) say that Loretta Lynch’s secret meeting with Bubba Clinton during the FBI investigation of Hillary’s emails was much worse than Sessions’ mistake during a senate hearing. According to Lemon, AG Loretta Lynch recused herself, which is not even close to being true.
As reported by Joe Newby in Conservative Firing Line:
“Loretta Lynch recused herself from any decision regarding Hillary Clinton because of that meeting of Hillary Clinton and Loretta Lynch, who was attorney general at the time, on the tarmac,” he said during a panel discussion.
Dana Bash eventually interjected to correct Lemon, saying,
“Loretta Lynch, she did say she wouldn’t be involved in the decisions, but didn’t completely remove herself from the investigation, which could be an example of why [the Trump White House]potentially need to do it differently this time.”
