CNN’s Don Lemon Has Had It With ‘Racist’ Donald Trump
Daily Beast ^ | 12 Jan 18 | Matt Wilstein

Posted on 01/12/2018 3:23:45 AM PST by SkyPilot

The first words from Lemon’s broadcast tonight: ‘The president of the United States is racist.’

Last December, The New York Times reported that President Donald Trump often “hate-watches” CNN, “especially Don Lemon.”

If he was watching Lemon’s 10 p.m. broadcast Thursday night, the first words he heard were, “The president of the United States is racist.”

“A lot of us already knew that,” the anchor added. But it has rarely been quite as apparent than it was earlier in the afternoon when Trump, referring to immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations, reportedly asked members of Congress, “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?”

“Those comments are frankly disgusting,” Lemon said. “There’s other language I would like to use, but we are on television. But you know what? They’re not shocking. Not even really surprising, because this is who Donald Trump is. This is what he thinks.”

From there, Lemon listed off a litany of similarly racist comments that Trump has made over the course of his campaign and presidency, from saying Nigerian immigrants “should go back to their huts,” to saying Haitian immigrants “all have AIDS” to calling black NFL players “sons of bitches” for protesting police brutality to saying “both sides” were to blame for the neo-Nazi violence in Charlottesville.

“A White House official told CNN they’re not worried, this is good for them, the president’s comments will resonate with his base,” said Lemon. “Jesus. Admitting that for all their talk about making America great, the president is playing to a base that welcomes his racism and will enjoy it. That is disgraceful.”

I am still laughing about this whole S-storm.

Trump actually said what everyone already knows: these are S-hole countries, and their "immigrants" (read: invaders) bring their crime, illiteracy, drugs, and backwards cultures with them.

The UN, the media, the Democrats, the Globalists, the Vatican and the rest cannot dispute the fact that these nations always have been, and are a mess.

So they are playing the Race Card.

And Don Lemon condemming Trump by taking the name of Christ in vain. Precious!

Why does this Lemon guy have such a complex about blackness, and being black.

He’s got a good job, a well-paying job, and all the attention and spotlight one person could handle.

NBC played his comments and told viewers to be cautious of young viewers at home. Ridiculous.

Lemon is mentally ill.

Not sure if you are familiar with the Irish show Father Ted (it ran 20 years ago). This was one of the funniest episodes:



I Hear You're A Racist Now, Father! - Father Ted

Trump referred to the countries, not the people.

If you look at the characteristics of the countries, the shoe fits.

I have to admit, Trump was wrong about Charlottesville. The entire thing was the fault of antifa, the mayor and the police who stood down, and failed to protect the public. The Unite the Right group had a valid permit for a demonstration, and if the mayor and police had fulfilled there part of the bargain, the demonstration would have been held peacefully, and the people would have left peacefully and gone home.

Stuff a sock in your mouth, Don Lemon. You can’t handle the truth.

Exactly. And it his comments not only ring true with people who are fed propaganda 24/7 by the media, Trump's candor shoots a big hole in the UN/EU/Globalist agenda to flood the West with Muslim and 3rd World Invaders.

Which they have been doing for years now, and has only accelerated. My wife and I have friends in Germany (we lived there for several years). They tell us the nation is going through horrors because of the "refugee" problem. They cannot swim in the public pools (schwimmbads) anymore because the "refugees" sexually assault females of all ages. The young men hang out on street corners and menace people. They don't work, don't want to learn the language, and show ZERO gratitude for their host nation and its inhabitants.

I have been to many countries in Africa, I have been to Haiti, and I have lived in Europe.

S-hole countries is correct.

Good morning mod.

I meant to put this thread in Extended News, not Frontpage. You can move it if you wish. Thanks!

Trump tweeted late last night:

"The Democrats seem intent on having people and drugs pour into our country from the Southern Border, risking thousands of lives in the process. It is my duty to protect the lives and safety of all Americans. We must build a Great Wall, think Merit and end Lottery & Chain. USA!"

I am so glad he is not taking the bait to "apologize" for his comments. That only emboldens them. He is sticking to his guns, and I hope he continues to do so.

While many are calling his comments a "disaster", I have to disagree. While I would not have said this as President, his comments cut through all the BS posturing of the Democrats, the EU, and the UN regarding "immigration." This isn't "immigration" - it is 3rd World Invasion.

People know its true - but we have never had any leader tell the truth.

You could pretty much compared every single European nation side by side to every single African nation and have a very similar comparison photo.
