CNN’s Don Lemon Gets Hot And Bothered Over Rick Santorum

He had the vapors.

CNN’s Don Lemon decided to put on war paint and go after former Republican Senator and current CNN colleague Rick Santorum with an unnatural abandon on Monday. Perhaps it was the highly carnal memory of Santorum in sweater vests. I mean, sweater vests are really hot, right?

Regardless of the reason Lemon, was almost in tears as he tried to speak for all American Indians that Santorum had supposedly abused by stating basic history during a CNN interview. Was Santorum given a chance to defend himself against the feverish rantings of the heepum big Bolshevik? Of course not. That would have ruined Lemon’s over the top Friend of Tonto routine. Though, as a “Native American” myself, I don’t remember a campfire vote naming Don Lemon spokesman for any tribe other than the Punditawah.

Must admit though, I hail from the South American very elective cardiac surgery/flying snake God branch of the native peoples, not the savages who massacred the noble 7th Cavalry. Speaking of our past boys in blue, let’s let Colonel Nelson Miles explain, in the clip below, the pertinent details of American Indian history.

FNC: “CNN’s Don Lemon let loose Monday in a lengthy rant aimed at his own colleague, CNN political commentator Rick Santorum, in response to comments he made concerning the country’s founding. The left-wing host blasted the former Pennsylvania senator for saying in an April speech to the Young America’s Foundation that the United States was founded by Europeans looking for religious freedom, and that there wasn’t much Native American culture within American culture. He also claimed Santorum’s comments were offensive to Native Americans, used the phrase ‘Native American lives matter,’ and seemingly called for his conservative colleague to be fired.”

“I’m breathing heavy right now,” Lemon said as he began clutching his pearls. “I was furious watching that interview in my office. I cannot believe the first words out of his mouth weren’t ‘I’m sorry, I said something ignorant, I need to learn about the history of this country… Europeans did not found this country. It was here, the Native Americans had this country before the Europeans came. Yeah, the Europeans conquered the country, they colonized it, but it had nothing to do with the founding of this country, and he should recognize that. He needs to know that, especially if he’s going to be on television representing us and talking about it.” Lemon then bit the head off a live iguana and continued.

“It’s all wrong. I’m sorry, but that is the truth. And — I can’t believe — I just — I was watching it going, ‘I cannot believe this man is sitting here and doing this…’ It was like Native American lives matter moment for me watching that. Ugh — Jesus…We’ve got to go because we’re not going to agree…I’ve got a solution, but anwyays, not my decision.” Wow. That was unhinged. Lemon just lost it. Santorum better be careful. He could find a bunny in a boiling pot when he gets home.
