During a segment on CNN, a host put together a panel to discuss Trump supporter’s mob-like behavior and it blew up in his face. Yep, the day of bullying Republicans has come to an end. That was made even more clear when one member of the panel, an anti-Trumper, called out liberals for harassing Cruz and his family at a restaurant.
Oh, the joy you get watching liberal media hosts meltdown on one of their own. Priceless.
According to Town Hall, CNN simply cannot stand it when guests and contributors refer to the serial harassment of politicians and Trump officials by left-wingers as engaging in mob-like behaviors. Brooke Baldwin almost had a coronary when CNN contributor Matt Lewis mentioned it, and now It’s Don Lemon’s turn to have a conniption. It was quite a doozy. He told Lewis, who was a guest on his show, to “shut up” and allow him to make his point, which was also total garbage.
“I’m waiting for liberals and intellectually honest liberals to admit that when you harass Ted Cruz at a restaurant, that is also mob-like behavior. Why is it that I’m willing to concede that Donald Trump is a bad person and that’s mob behavior, but I never hear liberals come on or center-left journalists come on and concede that?”
Cardona, who served as a senior adviser to Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, agreed with Lewis that it was inappropriate for people to harass elected officials when they are eating meals with their families. Lewis followed up by asking whether she considered it “mob behavior.”
The debate became heated as Lemon tried to drown out all reason screaming for the guest to shut up. Lemon, as well as the other members on the panel, refused to even acknowledge the question.
“I don’t know. How many were there?” asked Cardona before Lemon jumped in, indicating he had to wrap up the segment.
“Let’s show the video, Don. You got some B-roll,” Lewis said of the protesters harassing the Cruzes.
“I will answer your question,” Lemon responded. “Is it mob behavior? No, it’s not mob behavior. It’s people who are upset and angry with the way the country is going.”
Lemon and Lewis proceeded to talk over each other before Lemon said, “Will you let me finish, Matt, please, before you jump in? Okay? I’m making a point.”
“You’re making a point? Are you the moderator or the host, or arguing a liberal talking point?” Lewis asked.
“You can do whatever you want. You can leave the show if you want, but let me finish,” Lemon said. “Shut up and let me do it.”
