Is there something in the water at CNN? That can be the only explanation about these Don Lemon remarks, where he declared that he wasn’t a partisan liberal Democrat. This came as he was detailing how Republicans are on the wrong side of history with this impeachment fight…because we actually take what Don Lemon says seriously. My eyes cannot roll hard enough.
The Hill has been engulfed in impeachment fever over alleged quid pro quo nonsense, where Trump supposedly threatened the Ukrainian political leadership by withholding aid unless they opened an investigation into Hunter Biden, who secured a board position with a Ukrainian energy company when Joe Biden was vice president. The transcript of the call refutes that. The scores of so-called witnesses who came before the Hill this week offered little that wasn’t hearsay. This is the best shot Democrats have at impeaching Trump. It’s shoddy, but 2020 is right around the corner and these people promised their base they would impeach Trump if they retook the House in the 2018 midterms.
Still, Lemon’s remarks…there are just no words (via The Hill):
CNN anchor Don Lemon … that "Republicans are on the wrong side of history" in the impeachment process of President Trump, adding that he comes from this perspective not as a "partisan" or "some liberal Democrat."
"I’m not a partisan. I know people think that I’m some liberal Democrat. I’m not," Lemon, a staunch critic of Trump, said while speaking with fellow CNN anchor Chris Cuomo.
"They used to think I was a conservative Republican. I’m not. But I don’t think the Republicans aren't serving themselves well right now with their defenses or lack thereof of a credible one."
I mean, do we need to consult the tape—and this is a couple of many that show Lemon is a liberal host. He is partisan. And he works for a notoriously anti-Trump network. Donny, who are you kidding? You blew up when you interviewed, or shall I say grilled, a black pastor for meeting Trump and you smeared Trump supporters as racists. Need I say more? Newsbusters has done what they do best: document your nonsense:
