How much does CNN Tonight host Don Lemon hate Trump supporters? So much so that he had no choice but to “get rid of” those “addicts” from his life so they could “hit rock bottom.” And according to him, “they are too far gone” and the only way he’ll let them back into his life was “if they're willing to come back and willing to live in reality, then I will welcome them with open arms.”
Lemon’s “sad” admission came in response to PrimeTime host Chris “Fredo” Cuomo’s closing comments at the end of the previous hour, where he pleaded with Trump supporters not to go to Trump rallies so they don’t get sick.
The feigned sympathy for Trump supporters began with Lemon insisting that he had Republican friends, to begin with:
You know what the sad thing is? And I’ll be honest with you. I have many people who I love in my life. And yeah, I come from a red state. I’ve lived in several red states. There are a lot of friends I had to get rid of because they are so nonsensical when it comes to this issue. They have the whole – every single talking point that they hear on state TV and that they hear from this President. They repeat it and they are blinded by it.
“But here’s the thing, I had to get rid of them. Because they are too far gone. I try and I try and I try,” he moaned.
