If there is one thing that brings me much joy, it’s CNN losing it over the stupidest things. They’re anti-Trump. They’re the opposition. And they’ve been owned over and over again during this presidency. They can't even report on President Trump feeding koi fish properly. During the congressional baseball game, they reported that only the Democrats prayed on the mound; it was actually both parties. And there are the Melania Trump truther theories as well. This network is straight trash. But when Don Lemon has a meltdown, it’s pure gold.
This week, CNN simply cannot stand it when guests and contributors refer to the serial harassment of politicians and Trump officials by left-wingers as engaging in mob-like behaviors. Brooke Baldwin almost had a coronary when CNN contributor Matt Lewis mentioned it, and now It’s Don Lemon’s turn to have a conniption. It was quite a doozy. He told Lewis, who was a guest on his show, to “shut up” and allow him to make his point, which was also total garbage.
Dictionary definition of a mob: A large and disorderly crowd of people— Kimberley Strassel (@KimStrassel) October 10, 2018
especially : one bent on riotous or destructive action. (The left doesn't get to redefine basic words...)
The mob segment was due to President Trump slamming Democrats for becoming a left-wing mob, which liberal Maria Cardona took as a shot at the women who brought forward shoddy, baseless, and unsubstantiated sexual misconduct allegations because dabbling in total bull crap is a liberal pundit pastime. Remember, belief is not evidence. And for the Left, they had nothing to prove these allegations, some of which I think never happened. It was a political hit job—and everyone except raging anti-Trumpers knew that.
The days of bullying Republicans are over. We fought back. We don’t care what liberals think of us. Okay, some still might, but seriously—these people hate us. We should hate them with twice the intensity, but back to Lemon. This exchange was almost as good as his total meltdown over Trump’s Phoenix rally last year. Lewis used progressive whack jobs harassing Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and his wife, Heidi, at Fiola in D.C. as an example of the mob taking over the Left (via Free Beacon):
"I’m waiting for liberals and intellectually honest liberals to admit that when you harass Ted Cruz at a restaurant, that is also mob-like behavior. Why is it that I’m willing to concede that Donald Trump is a bad person and that’s mob behavior, but I never hear liberals come on or center-left journalists come on and concede that?"
Cardona, who served as a senior adviser to Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign, agreed with Lewis that it was inappropriate for people to harass elected officials when they are eating meals with their families. Lewis followed up by asking whether she considered it "mob behavior."
"I don't know. How many were there?" asked Cardona before Lemon jumped in, indicating he had to wrap up the segment.
"Let’s show the video, Don. You got some B-roll," Lewis said of the protesters harassing the Cruzes.
"I will answer your question," Lemon responded. "Is it mob behavior? No, it’s not mob behavior. It’s people who are upset and angry with the way the country is going."
Lemon and Lewis proceeded to talk over each other before Lemon said, "Will you let me finish, Matt, please, before you jump in? Okay? I’m making a point."
"You’re making a point? Are you the moderator or the host, or arguing a liberal talking point?" Lewis asked.
"You can do whatever you want. You can leave the show if you want, but let me finish," Lemon said. "Shut up and let me do it."
Oh, grab the popcorn! So, CNN is triggered by the M-word, but saying “token Negro,” that’s fine. This is CNN
Just to update everyone on The Left’s new language police rules:— Jerry Dunleavy (@JerryDunleavy) October 10, 2018
(1) Calling a mob “a mob” is Bad.
(2) Calling a black man a “Token Negro” is Good.
Thanks for clearing that up for us,@DonLemon & @CNN.pic.twitter.com/rP73mHuhij
