Last week, CNN fired Chris Cuomo after an investigation showed he used his position in media to snoop on his brothers sexual assault accusers. It was later revealed that the investigation uncovered something else that was unknown to CNN, and many people assumed it was an accusation of sexual harassment.
Don Lemon is still on the air at CNN but people are starting to wonder if he will be the next host to be cut by the network.
Lemon is facing his own sexual harassment case. He was also allegedly tied to the Jussie Smollett case.
The Daily Wire reports:
‘Should Be Next To Get Tanked’: Politicos Call For CNN To Fire Don Lemon After Smollett Revelation
Politicos are pressing CNN to fire Don Lemon over concerns about the host’s possible connection to “Empire” star Jussie Smollett’s allegedly orchestrated, anti-gay, anti-black hate crime hoax following testimony from the actor this week.
As reported by The Daily Wire, Smollett, who is facing up to three years behind bars for allegedly lying to police, testified under oath on Monday that he did not hand his phone over to authorities following the alleged attack in part due to text messages he received from Lemon, apparently tipping him off about the officers’ skepticism of the alleged hate crime:
Former “Empire” star Jussie Smollett testified Monday that he did not immediately hand over his cell phone to authorities partly because CNN’s Don Lemon texted him saying that the Chicago police did not believe his claims that two men attacked him and hurled racial and homophobic epithets at the gay black actor.
Can you imagine if both Cuomo and Lemon were gone from CNN in one month?
Don Lemon was texting Smollett every day with updates about what the Chicago police were doing. He needs to be fired.

After Jussie Smollett's testimony that Don Lemon tipped him off to the Chicago PD not believing his story… he should be the next to get tanked from CNN…

If Don Lemon tipped off Jussie Smollett about police investigating the hate crime hoax, CNN should fire him immediately!

CNN could look very different a month from now.
