CNN’s Don Lemon Says Trump Supporters Are Just Like Drug Addicts

CNN anchor Don Lemon, speaking with Chris Cuomo, suggested supporters of President Trump are just like drug addicts beyond saving.

CNN anchor Don Lemon, in his nightly handoff to colleague Chris Cuomo, suggested supporters of President Trump are just like drug addicts beyond saving.

Lemon made the comments while discussing how the President continues to hold campaign rallies with supporters despite an ongoing pandemic.

The host claimed he had to get rid of friends in his life who support Trump because they refuse to accept the ‘scientific evidence’ he would provide them in discussing COVID.

“I had to get rid of them because they’re too far gone,” Lemon, who appears to be a really bad friend, said. “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.”

Even the New York Times has noted that “death rates have dropped for seriously ill COVID patients.”

“Survival rates have improved with medical advances and less crowded hospitals, studies say,” according to the report.

But Americans, in Lemon’s view, are supposed to live in fear based on his science.

Don Lemon: Trump Supporters Are Just Like Drug Addicts

Lemon proceeded to compare Trump supporters to junkies who need to hit the absolute bottom before they can attain redemption.

“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?” he told Cuomo.

“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,” continued Lemon.

Interesting, since many people would consider being friends with Lemon to be ‘rock bottom.’

The Hate for the President and His Supporters is Palpable

Imagine getting science advice on the pandemic from a guy who once speculated that a missing Malaysian airliner had simply been sucked into a black hole.

No, we’re not kidding.

“That’s what people are saying,” Lemon said in a panel segment in 2014 discussing the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370. “I know it’s preposterous — but is it preposterous?”

What drugs do you think Lemon had to be on during that segment?

This isn’t the first time Lemon has disparaged Trump supporters in such a hateful fashion.

Lemon and a group of liberal panelists famously mocked the President’s supporters as being illiterate “boomer rubes.”

The Republican National Committee (RNC) eventually turned Lemon’s snide reaction to Republicans into an ad comparing his remarks to those of former First Lady Hillary Clinton who called them “deplorable.”

President Trump has referred to Lemon as “the dumbest man on television,” an allegation that becomes more likely with every minute he appears on CNN.
