Don Lemon Blows It Again

If someone was going to blame President Trump for George Floyd's death, it may as well have been Don Lemon.

Wednesday night during the transition between "Cuomo PrimeTime" and "CNN Tonight," Lemon was expressing his outrage for the treatment of African-Americans by police officers in the wake of Floyd's death in Minneapolis. But it wasn't long before Lemon brought it full circle and tried to blame the incident on President Trump.

Lemon began by asking viewers to speak out as if it were their friend or loved one who had been killed in such a manner. Then he made it political in no time and attacked President Trump for the supposed attitude he has "trafficked in" to the White House:

How many more excuses do you need to make before you examine yourself and say, okay, maybe I need to wake up a little bit and take a good long look at what I've been doing. Maybe I need to understand or realize that the environment that this President has trafficked in can help to lead to these sorts of situations, where people think that that sort of behavior, meaning the people who are doing these things, the people who are calling the cops on people falsely in Central Park.

The people who are chasing people down the street in Georgia and killing them. That you may begin to think that your actions are normal. That you may begin to think that you as the preeminent voice can do things that are inhumane to other people and it will be accepted.
