CNN’s Don Lemon doesn’t live in reality. He lives in a media bubble in liberal New York City where everyone he knows agrees with him and they all despise Trump.
Lemon goes on the air five nights a week and bashes Trump. He is the media poster child for Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Yet he claims with a straight face that CNN isn’t liberal.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Don Lemon: CNN Isn’t Liberal
CNN anchor Don Lemon claimed the network CNN and his show are not liberal while speaking at the Financial Times Future of News event in New York City on Thursday.
The remarks were highlighted on Twitter and reported by Mediaite.
Despite Lemon’s claim, examples of CNN’s and his own criticism against Republicans abound.
In December, Lemon said he did not think he would be able to shake President Donald Trump’s hand at George H.W. Bush’s funeral.
“I want to say that I don’t think I would shake hands with them. Nope, couldn’t do it. I’m not that big a person. I would hope that I would be, but I don’t— I can’t fake the funk as they say,” Lemon said, prompting fellow CNN host Chris Cuomo to call him “petty and small.”
In October, Lemon called “white men” the country’s biggest terror threat after saying “we have to stop demonizing people.”
“We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them,” Lemon said. “There is no travel ban on them. There is no white guy ban, so what do we do about that?”
Last August, Lemon defended the militant left-wing group Antifa, acknowledging its violent past while saying “no organization is perfect.”
Let’s take a look at Don Lemon’s Twitter feed to see the CNN stories he has shared.

"The White House expects you to believe that disgraceful show in the Rose Garden — that it wasn't a stunt. That it wasn't planned and designed to, as usual, distract from the President's failure — this time to put together a deal on infrastructure." – CNN's @DonLemon pic.twitter.com/niW0RhXMYa

"It's beginning to look like there are cracks in [President Trump's] stonewalling strategy," says CNN's @DonLemon. "The question is, will all these legal battles bring us any closer to the truth?" https://t.co/pdBvbs6S0k pic.twitter.com/MCVEjCNIMc
