How a lot does CNN Tonight host Don Lemon hate Trump supporters? A lot in order that he had no alternative however to “do away with” these “addicts” from his life so they might “hit all-time low.”

And in line with him on Thursday night time, “they’re too far gone” and the one method he’ll allow them to again into his life was “in the event that they’re keen to return again and keen to stay in actuality, then I’ll welcome them with open arms.”

Lemon’s “unhappy” admission got here in response to Prime Time host Chris “Fredo” Cuomo’s closing feedback on the finish of the earlier hour, the place he pleaded with Trump supporters to not go to Trump rallies so that they don’t get sick.

The feigned sympathy for Trump supporters started with Lemon insisting that he had Republican pals, to start with:

what the unhappy factor is? And I’ll be sincere with you. I’ve many individuals who I like in my life. And yeah, I come from a purple state. I’ve lived in a number of purple states. There are numerous pals I needed to do away with as a result of they’re so nonsensical on the subject of this difficulty. They’ve the entire – each single speaking level that they hear on state TV and that they hear from this President. They repeat it and they’re blinded by it.

However right here’s the factor, I needed to do away with them. As a result of they’re too far gone. I try to I try to I strive,” he moaned.

His grievances stemmed from their refusal to imagine him when he would browbeat them with strategies that purple states had been now the issue within the coronavirus pandemic (click on “increase”):

They’re going to say one thing actually silly after which I’ll present them the science and I’ll give them any data, they usually nonetheless repeat these speaking factors. And all of the whereas, the state was a scorching spot.

Should you have a look at the knowledge that we put up final night time that got here up yesterday, it confirmed you the way the purple states have now taken over the place the blue states had been. Folks got here in as a result of there are greater cities and there’s extra transmission, clearly, the place there are extra individuals are nearer collectively. And so, now the purple states are the issue.

 

 

In fact, there was no point out of how circumstances had been additionally spiking in New York (once more), Michigan, Wisconsin, and a bunch of different blue states. That’s to not point out blue states having a better share of coronavirus deaths per capita. However that didn’t cease him from evaluating Trump supporters to addicts.

And I simply needed to do away with lots of people in my life as a result of generally you need to allow them to go. I feel they need to hit all-time low like an addict, proper,” he rhetorically requested Cuomo. “And so they need to need to get assist, they need to need to know the reality, they need to need to stay in actuality, they need to need to be accountable not just for different folks’s lives however for his or her lives.

Whereas Lemon wasn’t certain if he may ever let these folks again into his life (it’s a very massive assumption that they wished him again in theirs), Cuomo had the same encounter with failed presidential nominee Al Gore after they mentioned the Trump “cult” throughout PrimeTime (Click on “increase”):

I do not perceive how the President cannot be accountable for a whole lot of hundreds of individuals getting sick in his personal communities of followers who’re recklessly disregarding the accuracy of messaging in a present of assist for him.

GORE: Yeah, I do not perceive it both. Many analysts have used the phrase cult and the phrase cult-like. There’s a lot of a temptation on the a part of a few of his supporters to need to imagine every thing he says and it is tragic that he is letting them down so utterly and so totally.

And at one level in his present, Cuomo whined that “it’s not the slam dunk that logic would inform you it will be” when it comes to who folks needs to be voting for within the election. In fact, Democratic nominee Joe Biden was his most popular candidate.
