CNN’s Don Lemon finally had enough of the lies coming from Trump supporters on his show. He blew up at Jason Miller on Thursday night. And it was beautiful to behold.
Did you ever have one of those days when you just can’t take the BS any longer, and you explode and lose your shit? That was Don Lemon Thursday night.
Lemon grew more and more frustrated with Trump supporter Jason Miller as the segment went on. But, when Miller continued to lie and defend Trump’s indefensible behavior, Lemon was pushed over the edge.
“Jason, I can’t! Please!” Lemon said. “Be respectful. When you come on and give disinformation, and other Trump supporters and give disinformation, I spend most of my time trying to debunk falsities and lies instead of educating the American people. It’s frustrating every single night.”
“Don, what did I say that was a lie?” Miller shot back.
“You’re talking about ‘no collusion’ every single night,” Lemon said. “You don’t even know the original focus of the Russia investigation.”
After a commercial break Lemon came back just as frustrated with Miller.
“You’re feeding talking points that aren’t true to the American people,” Lemon complained. “If you’re going to be on this platform, respect the American people. It is a privilege to come here. Don’t come on CNN and lie or deflect about what’s going on. Come here and be honest with the American people. It is a privilege to come on here! It is not a right!”
