You don’t have to be a fan of Don Lemon or CNN to approve of the television host’s assesment of tonight’s
white supremacy Trump rally in Phoenix, Arizona.
Lemon: What do you say to that? I’m just going to speak from the heart here. What we have witnessed was a total eclipse of the facts.
Don Lemon could have gotten up and retired right there. But he didn’t and he drove to the hole again and again and dunked the truth ball on Donald’s stupid head over and over again.
Lemon: Someone who came out onto the stage and lied to the American people. And left things out that he said, in an attempt to rewrite history. Especially when it comes to Charlottesville.
He’s unhinged. It’s embarrassing—and I don’t mean for us in the media because he went after us—but for the country. This is who we elected for the President of the United States. A man who is so petty he has to go after anyone he deems to be his enemy, like an imaginary friend of a six-year-old. His speech was without thought. It was without reason. It was devoid of facts. It was devoid of wisdom. There was no gravitas. There was no sanity there. He was like a child blaming a sibling on something else. He did it, I didn’t do it.
He certainly opened up the race wound from Charlottesville. A man who is clearly wounded by the rational people leaving him in droves, meaning those business people and the people in Washington who are now questioning his fitness for office and whether he is stable. A man backed into a corner by circumstances beyond his control, and beyond his understanding.
That’s the truth. If you watch that speech as an American, you had to be thinking what in the world is going on? This is the person we elected as the President of the United States? This petty? This small? The person who is supposed to pull the country together? It certainly didn’t happen there.
