It was a disgusting scene during the Tuesday handoff between CNN hosts Chris Cuomo (PrimeTime) and Don Lemon (CNN Tonight), as the two of them exposed the hate in the hearts. As both of them insisted America was a systemically racist place, Lemon equated racism to addiction and suggested that poor white people were “doing it wrong” by not taking “advantage” of their “privilege” in “this society.”

Triggered by former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum refusing to say systemic racism was real (because it wasn’t) in the previous hour, Lemon (a wealthy man who lives in the affluent South Hamptons) blew up. At first he equated racism to addiction in that America couldn’t admit that it had a problem (Click “expand”):

DON LEMON: They don’t know. When has anyone ever admitted that they had a problem? Have you ever known, have you ever had a family member or friend that has an issue whether it’s addiction, or whatever it is, who admitted to it?

CUOMO: People don’t like to admit they have problems.

LEMON: So, America has a problem with race. Rick says, “Okay, they want people to believe that racism--” Yes! It's in pretty much everything. Look at how the country was founded. Look at what's happening on the streets of American cities and not just playing out in America. Look at what's happening with monuments and statues. Look at what’s happening – look at the President and his priorities—

Of course, these two leftists omitted how those same founders gave use the codified tools to strive for a more perfect union and abolish slavery and protect the God-given rights of every American.
