First, it should be noted that it took nearly 48 hours for Don Lemon’s original mocking of tens of millions of voters (including millions of minority voters) to gain the attention of the mainstream. The reason why is simple – so few people watch his program. CNN overall has abysmal ratings and Lemon’s show is among the worst offenders.
Second, Lemon appears to be flat out lying here. He knows what he was laughing about. The segment went on for some time.
Watch the mocking clip and then watch Lemon’s “apology” several days later and you’ll likely leave with the same opinion of him – a grown man with a penchant for giggling at words / jokes clearly meant to demean others.
It’s this elitist attitude that helped to fuel Donald Trump’s 2016 victory and it’s now this same intellectually vacuous elitism that will likely do so again in 2020.
