Don Lemon Is on a Roll

Posted on | April 21, 2023 | Comments Off on Don Lemon Is on a Roll

So to speak:

2024 presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy angered “CNN This Morning” host Don Lemon during a debate on gun rights for Black Americans while on-air.
In the heated exchange, Lemon took offense to Ramaswamy’s recent statements at an NRA conference last week about Democrats in the south instituting gun laws to prevent African Americans from protecting their newfound rights in the post-Civil War era.
Lemon reduced Ramaswamy’s point to a declaration that the Civil War was fought merely to give Black people gun rights and berated him for it, telling him the statement “insulted” him as a Black American.
The CNN host further told Ramaswamy that he had no right to talk about the experience of Black people in America because he’s not Black.
Ramaswamy pushed back and insisted that Lemon was misunderstanding his point.
He also argued that both men should be able to talk about the issue regardless of their skin color.
In the heated crosstalk, Lemon also snapped at his producers who were apparently distracting him over his earpiece.
The intense live debate came after the hosts played a moment from Ramaswamy’s speech to the NRA in Indianapolis.

Need I remind you which show beats CNN in the ratings?

Paw Patrol! Paw Patrol! Whenever you’re in trouble!
Paw Patrol! Paw Patrol! We’ll be there on the double!
No job’s too big, no pup’s too small.
Paw Patrol, we’re on the roll!
