CNN host Don Lemon came completely unhinged on Monday night as he launched yet another attack on those who support Donald Trump, saying that they do not deserve respect because they “believe bullshit.”
Lemon lost it while talking about the Republican lawmakers who are planning to object to the certification of Joe Biden’s Electoral College win.
“We have millions and millions of voters who believe this election was illegitimate and it was stolen,” Lemon said, according to Mediaite. “Why do they believe that? Because you have been telling them that. Of course, they’re going to believe it. If you would stop telling them that and start telling them the truth, then maybe they would believe the truth, that the election was not stolen and it was a clean election according to everyone who has investigated, most of them Republicans.”
“So stop saying that we must respect Trump supporters who believe bullshit because it is bullshit that you have been feeding them,” he added. “The president and you have been feeding them the BS, and now that they believe it, all of a sudden, again, another self-fulfilling prophecy and feedback loop. ‘I can’t believe that. My constituents believe this, so I must…’ It’s all BS! And it’s all made up!”
This is far from the first time that Lemon has unloaded on Trump supporters. Just before the election, he went so far as to compare them to “drug addicts,” saying that he felt the need to cut Trump supporters out of his own personal life.
“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?” Lemon said. “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.”
