We've covered a lot of Don Lemon's comments lately, and for good reason. Since last week's string of suspicious package mailings turned out to have been delivered by a Trump supporter, Lemon has accused President Trump and Republicans of fueling much of the hatred and division in this country. The CNN host also laid blame at the president's feet for the tragic shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue.
Lemon noted that many local Pennsylvania officials refused to meet him on the tarmac when he arrived.
Trump was right to offer his sympathy to Pittsburgh, but “his message of hate and fear are what made him unwelcome.”
Earlier this week, Lemon absolved Democrats of the violent partisan atmosphere, a statement which made Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) raise his eyebrows.
This week, he told his guest Stephen Moore he was wrong if he didn't think Trump was a racist. Instead of giving Moore a chance to explain why the president may not be a racist, Lemon went to commercial.
"He’s a racist," Lemon said. "His policies and his words are racist, end of story. That’s not a debate.”
The host offered another interesting take on Tuesday night when he identified white men as the real terror threat in the U.S. This came after he implored Americans to stop demonizing their fellow citizens.

"We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them," Lemon said.
Fox News contributors Kevin Corke and Brit Hume were among the confused.

I could hardly believe he actually said that, but the video shows he certainly did. Remarkable. https://t.co/6x6YMoDVkV— Brit Hume (@brithume) October 31, 2018
