CNN Tonight host Don Lemon showed off how bitter and heartless he could be during Wednesday’s handoff from PrimeTime host Chris Cuomo. The same day The Washington Post disgustingly mocked the death of a Virginia pastor due to the coronavirus, Lemon decided he needed to get his kicks in as well. According to Lemon, his death should be a “lesson” for those who believed “God is larger than this dreaded virus,” as the pastor said.

Shortly before to the handoff, Cuomo had interviewed Bishop Gerald Glenn’s daughter, Mar-Gerie Crawley to see what kind of man he was and to set the record straight on what he thought of the virus. Crawley explained that her father did take the virus seriously, enforced social distancing, and provided hand sanitizer to his parishioners. She also explained that because the information was changing so rapidly in the early days of the outbreak, things got confusing.

Those facts were thrown out since Lemon had his sights set on scolding the faithful.

Despite saying his heart went out to the Bishop’s family, Lemon needed to make sure his viewers knew he was dunking on a dead man and people of faith.
