The Dumbest Man on Television

President Trump recently Tweeted - I never watch Don Lemon, who I once called the “dumbest man on television!” Bad Reporting
President Trump recently Tweeted – I never watch Don Lemon, who I once called the “dumbest man on television!” Bad Reporting. In what appears to be an ongoing feud between the sitting President and CNN.

CNN went running like whining babies after President Trump tweeted –

Another false story, this time in the Failing @nytimes, that I watch 4-8 hours of television a day – Wrong! Also, I seldom, if ever, watch CNN or MSNBC, both of which I consider Fake News. I never watch Don Lemon, who I once called the “dumbest man on television!” Bad Reporting.

Back in August of this year CNN anchor Don Lemon spent a minute and a half, clearly and calmly articulating what he believed was wrong with US president Donald Trump’s Aug. 22 rally in Phoenix, Arizona.

Lemon: “It was devoid of facts, it was devoid of wisdom. There was no gravitas, there was no sanity there”

“What we have witnessed was a total eclipse of the facts,” Lemon says after Trump’s rally in Phoenix.
Don Lemon has also exclaimed “Trump unpresidential and out of control.”

Clearly Don Lemon has no problem offering up his opinion. Pontificating about the President is what he is paid to do on a nightly basis. And he is paid well for it my friends. According to published reports, Lemon has a net worth of $3 million. Not bad for sitting around and complaining about one person.

Lemon has worked for NBC News in New York City, as a correspondent for Today and NBC Nightly News as well as an anchor on Weekend Today and MSNBC. One might expect a little more professionalism from a seasoned member of the media.

Perhaps Don Lemon is growing tired of fighting with the President of the United States and decided to see if mommy and daddy can help.

CNN’s latest actions on behalf of Lemon sounded like a “child blaming a sibling” for something he did.

Another statement from Lemon about President Trump –
“This is who we elected president of the United States. A man who is so petty that he has to go after people who he deems to be his enemy like an imaginary friend of a six-year-old. His speech was without thought, it was without reason, it was devoid of facts, it was devoid of wisdom. There was no gravitas, there was no sanity there. He was like a child blaming a sibling on something else. He did it, I didn’t do it. He certainly opened up the race wound from Charlottesville. A man clearly wounded by the rational people who are abandoning him in droves meaning those business people and the people in Washington now who are questioning his fitness for office and whether he is stable. A man backed into a corner it seems by circumstances beyond his control and beyond his understanding.”

It appears Lemon would rather avoid the reality of who are current President is and work toward finding common ground. Nope, not a chance. If you see something you disagree with in today’s media, attack it.

What type of country or world does Don Lemon believe he is helping to create? What does he think the country will be like “after” President Trump is out of office? A country primed in hate?

Remember when Hillary Clinton at her (day late and a dollar short) concession speech stated to the world on live television – “We owe him (Donald Trump) an open mind and the chance to lead.”

Nothing could be farther from the truth. We now know the opposite agenda was set long before election night in 2016.

If Don Lemon is not, as according to President Trump, the dumbest man on television, he is perhaps the laziest when it comes to investigating the avalanche of scandal within the DNC, a scandal which involves the very company who pays is salary.
