President Donald Trump triggered liberal snowflakes everywhere on Thursday when he reacted to a potential immigration deal that would provide for and protect immigrants from Haiti and Africa by saying why should the U.S. take in more immigrants from “shithole countries.” Most triggered of all by this, however, was CNN host Don Lemon, who came completely unhinged on his show last night.
“The president of the United States is racist,” Lemon declared at the start of his show. “A lot of us already knew that.”
Bizpac Review reported that Lemon went on to call Trump’s comments “disgusting.”
“There’s other language I’d like to use, but we are on television,” Lemon said. “But you know what? They’re not shocking. They’re not even really surprising. Because this is who Donald Trump is. This is what he thinks.”
Unfortunately, Lemon’s rant did not stop there.
“Apparently we have to go through this repertoire every time he says something like this,” he said before bringing up examples that he claim prove Trump is racist.
“Do I need to go on?” he asked rhetorically before saying hat a White House official told CNN the president’s comments would “resonate with his base,” to which Lemon reacted with an exasperated, “Jesus!” Lemon went on to insult all Trump supporters in a tone dripping with liberal condescension.
“This is for anyone who may be taken aback by my comments: I don’t really care if you are. I hope you are,” Lemon said. “For years, I and others have been trying to tell you, the American people, that this man has been exhibiting bigoted behavior. I’ve asked him about it a number of times and he denied, but kept up the racist rhetoric throughout the campaign and now while he’s in the White House.”

“His supporters made excuses, continue to make excuses for him. Some of them are his friends and I can hear them now, telling me: ‘Donald didn’t mean that,’ ‘Donald isn’t a racist,’ ‘I think it was taken out of context’…how many examples do you need of this? But he is a racist,” Lemon went on. “All of you who over the last few years have uttered that tired, lazy, uninformed, uneducated response of calling me and others who point out racist behavior ‘racists,’ you know what you can go do? I can’t say that. But you can go read a history book. Because you might learn that people from some of those ‘sh*thole countries’ were slaves who were brought by force to help build this country.”
Lemon asked Trump supporters to do a “self examination” and ask themselves “what it says about you that you continue to make excuses for this man, no matter what. Doesn’t that make you just as bad?”
“I’m tired of being outraged,” he said. “Here’s why I’m not outraged: People of color warned you. You called us racists or race-baiters.”
Twitter users immediately fired back at Lemon by letting him know that he should keep his big mouth shut:
I’m tired of you being outraged too. Get some counseling!

Not nearly as tired as we are of you Don.

Don Lemon doesn’t appear to know the difference between race and nationality. There are shithole countries everywhere, on every continent. It’s a fact.
Another hysterical, moralising lecture from CNN’s idiot in chief.

Because when Obama called Trump supporters ‘Okie dokes’ there was nothing ‘racist’ about that… please.
