Don Lemon mocks Trump supporters who he thinks ‘hit rock bottom like an addict’
Don Lemon hit rock bottom yesterday telling viewers on CNN that Trump supporters are like addicts that have yet to bottom out and should be purged from people’s lives.
“I just had to get rid of a lot of people in my life because sometimes you have to let them go. I think they have to hit rock bottom like an addict. Right?” said Lemon about Trump supporters.
Lemon’s latest unhinged rant against Trump supporters is just one in a long line of rants that show the disdain in which CNN and other establishment media holds the rest of the country.
Lemon said that he grew up in a red state and that he lived in red states and “there are a lot of friends who I’ve had to really get rid of because they are so nonsensical when it comes to this issue” of supporting Trump.
“It’s so sad. And I don’t know if after this I’ll ever be able to go back and be friends with those people because, at a certain point, you just say they’re too far gone and I’ve got to let them go. And if they’re willing to come back, they’re willing to live in reality, then I would welcome them with open arms. But I can’t do it, I can’t do it anymore.”
Cuomo then attempted to jump in on the disparaging bandwagon by accusing Trump supporters of “desperation.”
“I believe in a lot of the people that followed this president because they are so desperate in their own frustration and they’re right to be,” Cuomo explained. “They just picked the wrong change agent. And look, he can change. Everybody can change. Maybe, even me. But on this pandemic, he is lying to them and I know people who have gotten sick because they listen to him and it is wrong.
Lemon piggybacked on the sentiment by “warning” the “desperate” Trump supporters about their choices.
“Careful of the decisions you make in desperation. You said they are desperate. But careful of the decisions you make in desperation. Remember, when you are desperate, you don’t necessarily have a clear head. You don’t think straight.”
Lemon has a long history of saying outlandish things about President Trump and his supporters.
In June of 2019, Lemon began agitating for censorship of Trump and Trump supporters by comparing them to Hitler, a comparison that even CNN’s Chris Cuomo found too extreme.
“Think about Hitler. Think about any of those people. If you could look back in history, would you say, ‘Well, I’m so glad that person was allowed a platform so that they could spread their hate and propaganda and lies?’ Or would you say, ‘That probably wasn’t the right thing to do to spread that because you knew in that moment that was a bad person and they were doing bad things. And not only were they hurting people, they were killing people,” Lemon said according to Biz Pac Review.
“Comparing anything to an extreme like Hitler weakens the argument. Because you are taking a guy who says things you don’t like and comparing him to a genocidal maniac,” replied Cuomo.
Lemon also said that Trump and supporters like to lie, like to hate women, like to be racist.
“They like the lies, one would have to. If you don’t like the lies, then you’re not a supporter. They like the shiny objects. They like the racism. They like the misogyny. They like all of it because if they didn’t, they wouldn’t support him,” Lemon said just a few months ago.
