CNN’s Don Lemon called on Americans to “blow up the entire system” in remarks to fellow anchor Chris Cuomo on Monday night, but the next evening, under fire from critics, the broadcaster deemed “the dumbest man on TV” said that he really didn’t mean what people thought he meant. While we’re sure that regular CNN viewers are used to taking anything that comes out of this imbecile’s mouth with a hearty grain of salt, this backtracking nonsense was a stretch even for Lemon.
“We’re going to have to blow up the entire system,” Lemon wailed on Monday evening.
“I don’t know about that,” muttered Cuomo.
“You know what we’re going to have to do? You’re going to have to get rid of the electoral college,” Lemon continued. “Because the minority in this country get to decide who our judges are and who our president is. Is that fair?”
“You need a constitutional amendment to do that,” Cuomo noted.
“And if Joe Biden wins, Democrats can stack the courts and they can do that amendment and get it passed,” Lemon replied, clearly not familiar with the process of passing a constitutional amendment.
The next night, Lemon said he was surprised to read the coverage of his outlandish remarks.
“I woke up and I saw all of these headlines, ‘Don Lemon is calling for the abolishing of the electoral college!’ But I was responding to you when you said we need people with integrity!” Lemon told Cuomo. “I was responding to you when you said we want people with integrity in office and I said, ‘Well, then we’ve got to blow up the whole system, right?’ And I said here’s what Democrats can do and that’s the danger- they can stack the court. But all of a sudden, I am calling for the abolishing of the electoral college…and that I’m a Democrat because I said ‘we.’ I mean the American people!”
What can you do but laugh at this hilarious pull-back? You literally said it was time to get rid of the Electoral College! And, really? You’re trying to convince viewers that you’re not a Democrat? Let’s please be serious, Don.
Then, apparently eager to suck up to his buddy, Cuomo made this idiotic remark: “But listen, you forgot something very fundamental: A black guy can’t say that he wants to blow anything up right now. People are waiting for you to come and destroy their houses with people like me, your kooky white friends. So you can’t say you want to blow stuff up because you’re playing into the narrative.”
Yes, everyone is terribly afraid that Don Lemon, of all people, is going to commit a terrorist attack on the suburbs.
Who is still watching these fools?
