CNN host Don Lemon has never been shy about his hatred for President Trump and the individuals who support him and his agenda for America. He’s been in trouble on numerous occasions for insulting this particular group of citizens, but never seems to learn his lesson.
Well, Lemon really stepped up the rhetoric on his program Thursday by comparing those who vote for Trump to drug addicts during a chat with his fellow CNN colleague Chris Cuomo.
The main complaint? Trump continuing to hold campaign rallies during the coronavirus pandemic.
“You know what the sad thing is? And I’ll be honest with you … I’ve had many people who I love in my life- and yeah I come from a red state, I’ve lived in several red states, 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,” Lemon said. “They have every single talking point that they hear on state TV and that they hear from this president, they repeat it and they’re blinded by it.”
“I had to get rid of them because they’re too far gone. I try and I try and I try, they say something really stupid and then I’ll show them the science and I’ll give them the information, and they still repeat those talking points,” Lemon told Cuomo. “I had to get rid of a lot of people in my life because sometimes you’ve just got to let them go. I think they have to hit rock bottom like an addict, right? And they have to want to get help, they have to want to know the truth, they have to want to live in reality, they have to want to be responsible not only for other people’s lives but for their lives.”
He continued, “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.”
How much does CNN's Don Lemon hate Trump supporters? He equated them to addicts that he had to "get rid of" from his life.

Earlier this year, in January, Lemon got a lot of heat for laughing wildly while his panel made fun of Trump supporters as illiterate “credulous rubes.”
You know, it’s obvious CNN is in the can for the Democratic Party, which makes them a propaganda producer rather than a legitimate news network, but they could at least put a little effort into pretending they’re objective.
