CNN Anchor Don Lemon

CNN host Don Lemon criticized Republicans on Monday for praising Martin Luther King Jr. while supporting a “racist” like Donald Trump.

Lemon said, “One Republican after another apparently hoping that you’ll forget their support for a president who used race to pit Americans against each other.”

Lemon also quoted Martin Luther King Jr.’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” and how he criticized “shallow understanding” and “lukewarm acceptance.”

In the famous letter, MLK wrote, “Shallow understanding from people of goodwill is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection.”

Lemon then went on to place MLK and Trump on opposite sides of a moral spectrum:

“Donald Trump created an environment where white supremacists and conspiracy theorists overran the Capitol of the United States of America. He used race to divide us from the very beginning,” Lemon said. “All of that is the opposite of what Dr. King stood for, what he died for more than 50 years ago,” he said.

On Monday, “The View” co-host Sunny Hostin also condemned Republicans for their praise of Dr. King.

“We saw an insurrection in our nation’s Capitol. We saw that there are people just like Dr. King said that would much rather have white supremacy rather than this multiracial democracy that he wished for,” Hostin said.

“So, I would say that in order for us to really live out his legacy, his dream, is that we must demand truth before unity. I saw today, unbelievably, in my view, Ted Cruz, Kayleigh McEnany, Ronna McDaniel, Melania Trump, quoting Dr. King, tweeting Dr. King. Those are the same people, like Melania Trump with this birther lie, Ted Cruz challenging the Electoral College. Kayleigh McEnany over and over again with her propaganda. How dare they. How dare they try to quote Dr. King on the celebration of his birthday when they enabled, enabled a racist president causing this insurrection and attack on our democracy. So while we have some progress, we just have such a long way to go,” Hostin continued.

Lemon has also recently implied that Trump voters side with the KKK and Nazis.

“If you are on that side, you need to think about the side you are on. I am never on the side of the Klan. Principled people, conservative or liberal, never on the Klan’s side. Principled people, conservative or liberal, never on the Nazi’s side. Principled people, conservative or liberal, never on the side that treats their fellow Americans as less than, that says that your fellow Americans should not exist. That says your fellow Americans should be in a concentration camp, or sides with slavery, or sides with any sort of bigotry,” Lemon said.

He was the young waiter in the Hampton’s that was sexually adult Ed by this most disgusting pig. He needs to kicked out and put in jail. Biggest freakin sick pos. May he go to hell.

  4. Well I’m confused!!! Mr. Lemon goes on a rant like this…then turns around and speaks unity?!?!? Can we all say…
    And to Mr. Lemon, and Ms. Hostin. I voted for “President Trump”, and am neither a Nazi, nor a Klan member. And as an Evangelical, I now pray for “President Biden”! As I did “President Trump”, “President Obama”, and as I did for “President Bush”!!!
    MAYBE…JUST MAYBE…we should all try a little more praying, rather than ripping each other!!!
    Also please note the respect I give you both…Mr. and Ms.!!! And that’s even vastly disagreeing as we do!!!

    Love ya both…GODSPEED!!!

  5. Lemon sucker and extreme racist Demon Lemon should pick up a history book and read it. Your democratic masters don’t care about you, they just want your vote and your idiotic ideas. And they really didn’t need your vote, they had that fixed already. When your master biden turns on you don’t start crying. Because you voted for him and asked for it. You would be better off good back to being a carnival barker.

  6. Don Lemonhead, that nappie POS is so full of propaganda shit. He is without a doubt the most pompous asshole reporter on all the biased media. He forgets what color he is and ought to be working the “South Forty” with a “master” at his side with a whip in his hand, telling him to pick that cotton, boy.

  7. Don :thank you and Sunny: Praise your courage of truth calling a thing a thing and that love of difference: color, gender, Is a devine assignment.
    You’re brave enough to encourage all to hear and follow the beauty of one humanity to seek the greatest actions of love .
    It’s no Big I’s and little U’s, Dr. Kings messages undeniably will definitely continue resoundIng in our history.

    Our faithfulness is In our Countries Democracy looking forward to a country in Peace and not in piece .

    I remain blessed and hopeful as we move forward with our Compassionate leaders President Biden and Vice President Harris.

    Hope never fails in our Democracy.
    God Bless Our New President and Vice President .
    Blessed is Dr. King our iAngel we know by name.

  8. Well we have a Pro Death president now. He will be protected by the Antifa Broadcasting Company, the Communist Broadcasting Company, the Nitwit Broadcasting Company, and the Corrupt News Network. America is in for a wild communist ride and total destruction of the United States, soon to be called the communist state of America. Best of luck to all real taxpaying citizens of what was the greatest country on earth.

  9. Jesus said that “Let the first if you who us without sub cast the first stone” (paraphrased) . People can believe in the concepts and precepts if a man like MLK and believe in a just and fair society while using their Constitutional right in voting their conscience towards one or the other candidate. It is our right to choose whom WE believe would serve in OUR best interests and in the interests if OUR family, not to just go and blindly vote for a candidate that those in the quote “knowledgeable portion of society” would have us vote. My main concern is where and by what credentials would someone establish their right to criticize ms in my choices. Show me that credentialing and show me how the credentialing lines up with the conscience that would gave me believe that they are right and I am wrong.

  10. Sounds like” the lemon” does not know what racist means. How could gardening be considered racist ???
    Being racist is when someone insults or demeans a person of another race about their race. That professor needs to go back to school… a student.

  11. President Trump provided more jobs, especially for poorer and black families than all Democrats.
    And if we talk about racists, look at Semocrat Mr. Biden’s life history from Rodney King to 3 Strikes Law.
    And if anyone calls Trump a “racist” for George Floyd’s death, remember that George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and over 90% of Black victims of police violence died in Democrat cities with Democrat Mayors and police!
