CNN’s Don Lemon: If you stand with Trump, I don’t want to hear ‘respect police officers’ from you


CNN anchor Don Lemon has gained a reputation for delivering crude and inappropriate comments aimed specifically at former President Donald Trump, and those who stand on the right. 

In his latest inappropriate outburst, Lemon has said openly on his show that those who support former President Donald Trump have no right to say that they support police officers. 

On Tuesday, February 9th, on Lemon’s show “Tonight”, he announced that those who stand with former President Donald Trump can not tell others to respect the police, or discuss family values, or essentially say anything that involves a stance on a moral high ground.

After playing scenes from the deadly Capitol riot, which took place on January 6th, Lemon said:

“Blue Lives Matter, huh? Law and order, law and order, respect the flags, respect law enforcement. Why don’t you just comply? Don’t you dare even say that again if you can stand by after that video and give Donald Trump, of all people, Donald Trump…and his mob a pass.”

He went on to say:

“If you can do that, I don’t ever want to hear that again. I don’t want to hear that from you. I don’t want to hear family values from you. I don’t want to hear respect police officers from you. I don’t want to hear it. No moral high ground to stand on. Look who is on your side there. There have been a lot of lies. We’ve been warning you about all the lies.”

One can assume Lemon’s ignorant statement is due to the fact that officers were injured and killed during the January 6th Capitol riot, which the Democrats are blaming Trump for starting. However, the support of Trump, and the horrible acts of that day, cannot be broadly linked together. 

As stated earlier, Lemon has a reputation of attacking the former President every chance he can. Even now, when Donald Trump is no longer in office, Lemon clearly still needs to take his cheap shots, as Trump undergoes an impeachment trial by the Senate 

However, Lemon is not only attacking Trump, but he is also attacking anyone who supports the former President, stating that they somehow no longer have morals, or rights to support our officers, due to an out of control riot that is being blamed on a speech delivered by Trump. 

Back in November of 2020, Lemon compared Trump supporters to drug addicts, saying ‘They’re too far gone’. Then in September 0f 2020, Lemon seemingly threatened America, saying ‘We’re gonna have to blow up the entire system’.

Here is more on both of those stories that Law Enforcement Today has brought you. 

WASHINGTON, DC – Many years ago, failed democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton referred to supporters of President Donald Trump as deplorables.  Now, CNN host Don Lemon compares President Trump supporters as drug addicts

Don Lemon, in a conversation with fellow CNN news anchor Chris Cuomo, referred to supporters of the President as drug addicts, who need to hit “rock bottom” before they realize they are wrong.  The exchange between the two anchors happened on October 29th as they were switching between shows.

The whole debacle unfolded as Lemon was speaking out the President holding rallies despite the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Lemon believes that those who support the President are not able to be saved.  He said:

“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 red states, there are a lot of friends who I’ve had to get rid of because they are so nonsensical when it comes to this issue. 

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. 

I had to get rid of a lot of people in my life because sometimes you’ve 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 realty, they have to want to be responsible not only for other people’s lives but for their lives.

“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 that anymore.”

Now, the comments he made were specifically about COVID-19 but this is not the first time, by far, that he has angered non-liberals.  In August, Lemon, when taking over for Cuomo, spoke about the supporters of the President suffering from what he termed as “cognitive dissonance” because they supported someone who he personally felt was a bad person.

Lemon said:

“If you don’t like the lies, [alluding the President lies], then you’re not a supporter.  They [supporters] like the shiny objects.  They like racism.  They like misogyny.  They like all of it because if they didn’t, they wouldn’t support him…

“So there’s either a disconnect or cognitive dissonance going on where you have to believe that you made the right choice, because you just can’t somehow, in your mind, admit that you made the wrong choice, that this is a bad person, that he is a liar, that you overlook all of those things because of what? 

“Maybe you’re not digging deep enough in yourself.  It’s not Donald Trump’s issue, it’s yours.”

Criticisms like this are not abnormal for Lemon, as he also joined another cast of two people who also, not only criticized the President, but also his supporters.  In January, he openly mocked and made fun of the supporters of the President during a segment with Rick Wilson and New York Times columnist Wajahat Ali.

In that segment, Lemon was full of laughter as both Ali and Wilson made fun of anyone who may support the President over Ukraine and the former Ambassador to the country, Marie Yovanovitch.  Wilson started by saying:

“[Pompeo] knows deep down in his heart that Donald Trump couldn’t find Ukraine on a map if you had the letter U and a picture of an actual physical crane next to it.”

CNN’s Don Lemon seemingly threatens America: ‘We’re gonna have to blow up the entire system’

September 22, 2020

This editorial is brought to you by a staff writer for Law Enforcement Today.

Many liberal Democrats are beside themselves thinking about the fact that President Trump is going to nominate someone to the now vacant Supreme Court seat. 

CNN anchor Don Lemon just fell in line with the people saying ridiculous and outrageous things as they are throwing their temper tantrums about the situation. 

On Monday, September 21st, in an interview with Chris Cuomo, CNN anchor Don Lemon made a very bold statement that “We’re gonna have to blow up the entire system.”

The system that Lemon is referring to, is the system of democracy. The democracy that is clearly not going the way he thinks it should, so in his perfect world, it should all just be scrapped and restarted. 

In the clip below, you can see for yourself, that Lemon is not in the slightest bit kidding, and even presses the point when Cuomo disagrees.


LEMON: We’re gonna have to blow up the entire system, and you know what we’re gonna have to do…

CUOMO: I don’t know about that. You’re just going to have to vote.

LEMON: Yes, and you know what we’re gonna have to do…? Honestly… From what your closing argument is…? You’re going to have to get rid of the Electoral College. Because the people…

CUOMO: I don’t see it.

LEMON: Because the minority in this country decides who the judges are and they decide who the president is. Is that fair?

CUOMO: You need a constitutional amendment to do that.

LEMON: And if Joe Biden wins, Democrats can stack the [Supreme] Court and they can do that amendment and they can get it passed.

CUOMO: Well, you need two-thirds vote in the Congress and three quarters of the state legislatures.

LEMON: They may be able to do that.

CUOMO: Maybe.

In the clip, you can clearly see by Lemon’s face, tone, and comments, that he is nothing less than furious that the sitting President of the United States is performing his constitutional duty to replace a Supreme Court Justice.

One can just picture Lemon jumping up and down yelling, and then crawling into a fetal position, because he wants to change the rules, he wants to strip the minority of all their rights, and that is just not going to happen. 

CNN is known for openly calling for violence, and then turning a blind eye when anyone they deem on their side steps out of line.

It will remain to be see how far off the handle Lemon, and the rest of the left wing Democrats will fly, once President Trump nominates a Justice to replace Justice Ginsburg.
