CNN hosts Brooke Baldwin and Don Lemon have a longstanding friendship, at least on camera, as the two tend to get wasted during the network’s New Year’s Eve celebrations. But things may be on the rocks since Baldwin was lashing out at CNN as she was on her way out, claiming the network was unwelcoming to women. But during Thursday night’s show, Fox News host Tucker Carlson found a soundbite of Lemon throwing his friend under the bus and discounting what she said.
“We try and keep up with what’s going on at CNN. And a few nights ago we told you about CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin, she’s on her way out. And on her way out she accused CNN of being sexist,” Carlson reminded his viewers.
There was a noticeable air of sarcasm as Carlson showed off audio of Lemon speaking on The New York Times’ Sway podcast, hosted by Kara Swisher, in which he cast doubt on Baldwin’s claims about CNN.
