<p>On the 12 December 2016 edition of <em>CNN Tonight</em>, Don Lemon and his panel refreshingly condemned &quot;safe spaces&quot; on college campuses. Lemon raised how some student Trump supporters have called for their own &quot;safe spaces.&quot; Dennis Prager recognized the &quot;legitimate factor here that kids who did vote for Trump are ostracized,&quot; but added, &quot;I&#39;m still against the safe space even for conservative students.&quot; Professor Todd Gitlin defended the right of white nationalists, such as Richard Spencer, to speak on campus. Carl Bernstein bluntly shot down &quot;the idea that we have interference in the process of free speech on campuses&quot; as being &quot;outrageous on its face.&quot;</p>
