Repugnant: CNN’s Don Lemon Repeatedly LIES, Says Trump Has Been Silent on Riots

Breaking News

Clearly invested in driving Americans into raging, rioting stupors, CNN charlatan Don Lemon repeatedly lied Saturday night in claiming that President Trump was silent on that day’s violence and had yet to offer any words of calm, peace, and reconciliation following Monday’s death of unarmed, African-American Minneapolis resident George Floyd.

And when he tried to cover for himself by noting two of the President’s tweets, Lemon still hurled venom toward the President and continued to ignore his extensive, eight-minute-pus remarks earlier in the evening following the inspiring launch of the SpaceX rocket. Of course, CNN refused to carry it.

First, Lemon’s lies. At 9:38 p.m. Eastern, he fretted going to a commercial break that with American cities “in chaos” and “unrest,” there’s been no appeal from the president of the United States for calm.”

“We are waiting for some leadership instead of division and so far, silence,” he added.

Fast-forward to 10:13 p.m. Eastern and Lemon was at it again.

After days of fomenting the kinds of hate and venom that led to this rioting, Lemon stated in faux exasperation:

It is unbelievable to see what is happening in almost every single major city in this country and still — heads up, heads up, we’re hearing from Salt Lake and still, I am waiting for a call for calm, something from the leadership in this country. Where is it? There is Atlanta. This is what’s happening on the streets of Atlanta right now. Where’s the call for calm? Where is the leadership? So far, nothing as all of this plays out, as many cities in America are burning. 

Moving ahead in time once more to 11:08 p.m. Eastern, Lemon snidely told viewers: “Wondering as I am — I’m sure as many in our country and across the world who are watching these pictures on CNN have to be wondering who will step into the void here, into the breach and show some leadership and a call calm.”

He then read two Trump tweets and called it “divisive,” including how he was thanking law enforcement for doing the very best they can (click “expand”):

[T]his is really a tale of two styles here. The President of the United States tweeting out: “The National Guard has been released in Minneapolis to do the job that the Democrat Mayor couldn’t do. Should have been used 2 days ago & there would not have been damage & Police Headquarters would not have been taken over & ruined. Great job by the National Guard. No games!” Then again, tweeting: “Let New York’s Finest be New York’s Finest. There is nobody better, but they must be allowed to do their job!” No call for calm, no message to the nation about togetherness, just a divisive — two divisive — well, one divisive message at least that the Democrat mayor couldn’t do. 

And then we have John Lewis, who is a legend when it comes to civil rights and, of course, congressman, and part of his message says: “I know your pain, your rage, your sense of despair and hopelessness. Justice has indeed been denied for far too long. Rioting, looting, and burning is not the way stand in. Organize. Demonstrate. Sit-in. Stand-up. Vote. Be constructive, not destructive. History has proven time and again that non-violent, peaceful protest is the way to achieve the justice and equality that we all deserve.” John Lewis, Congressman. Thank you.

Again, all of what Lemon said was a lie. Starting with the video below and following after that (if you follow the thread), here were the President’s full remarks:

CNN Tonight with Don Lemon
May 30, 2020

DON LEMON: Paul Vercammen on scene for us in Los Angeles as these protests are getting out of control. There is a curfew set, but we will see if that will hold. There’s also one curfew set in Minneapolis. There’s one set in Atlanta. We will see if any of those will hold. Many of our cities, our major cities in this country in chaos. There’s unrest in our cities. And so far, no appeal from the president of the United States for calm. We are waiting for some leadership instead of division and so far, silence.
