Don Lemon’s Apology Proves How Little He Thinks of Us

 

After the President tweeted the video of Don Lemon and his guests laughing and mocking Trump supporters, the CNN anchor was forced to address the controversy and did so last night on air:

This is among the more laughable explanations I’ve seen come from CNN, and that’s saying something considering this is the same network that explained that Anderson Cooper sent a vile tweet to the President because his assistant’s phone was hacked by an unknown person in his gym, who somehow got access to the phone and the CNN anchor’s Twitter account in the locker room.

This ridiculous apology proved that Lemon and his compatriots really do think we’re that stupid. A Twitter follower put into words why it frustrated me so much:

    Trump don’t apologize… why should Don? This is the world we chose to make. Now we should live in it and revel in it. I’m tired of the anti Trump side unilaterally disarming. It is time we met fire with fire. Burn this mother down!

    This is so stupid it’s further proof that Don Lemon couldn’t find Ukraine on a map even if it was marked with a “U” and a picture of a crane.

    Don Lemon must think we’re really stupid. CNN producers probably wrote his response in view of the criticism his show engendered.

    Not only was it not an apology he delivered it with condescending, lecturing tones. As if to say “You are too silly and stupid to really understand what you saw, so I will explain it to you.” More gaslighting.

    Honestly, the guy is just creepy anyway. Which I suppose is what you expect with someone guilty of sexual assault.

    I personally don’t require an apology from Don Lemon.  I know how he feels – he should at least have the courage of his convictions.  He’s not fooling anyone with this poorly-worded mea culpa anyway.

    This is the same guy who took the Jussie Smollett story at face value and cried about it on live TV. He has no room to criticize anyone’s intellect.

    Drew Klavan says Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo are the stupidest people on TV. I agree.

    I’m not sure I would agree about Cuomo but might refer to him as extremely biased almost to the point of irrationality.

    So Don Lemon is both hard-of-hearing and humor-impaired?

    Gotcha.

    As a Ukie I find this amusing. For most of my life I’ve had to explain where the Ukraine is and no it’s not Russia.

    It’s all Trump’s fault?  Really?
