Less than three weeks after laughing himself silly at racist jokes aimed at Trump-supporting rap artist Kanye West, CNN’s Don Lemon – who somehow still has a job – is back at it again. And this time, he’s lamenting America’s lack of a “white guy ban" -- all while telling us we should stop "demonizing people."
"We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them,” Lemon told fellow CNN host Chris Cuomo Tuesday night. “There is no travel ban on them. There is no ban on, you know, they had the Muslim ban, there is no ‘white guy ban.’ So what do we do about that?”

Lemon is, of course, referring to the so-called “Muslim ban” enacted by President Trump earlier in his term that restricted travel from a few Muslim-majority nations that the previous Obama administration’s State Department had determined pose a high-level terror threat. The new rules left the vast majority of Muslim-majority nations – and the vast majority of the world’s Muslims – completely unrestricted.
But don’t let facts get in the way of your racism there, Don.
