CNN host Don Lemon came completely unhinged on Monday night as he launched yet another attack on those who support Donald Trump, saying that they do not deserve respect because they “believe bullshit.”
Lemon Comes Unglued
Lemon lost it while talking about the Republican lawmakers who are planning to object to the certification of Joe Biden’s Electoral College win.
“We have millions and millions of voters who believe this election was illegitimate and it was stolen,” Lemon said, according to Mediaite. “Why do they believe that? Because you have been telling them that. Of course, they’re going to believe it.”
“If you would stop telling them that and start telling them the truth, then maybe they would believe the truth, that the election was not stolen and it was a clean election according to everyone who has investigated, most of them Republicans,” Lemon continued.
“So stop saying that we must respect Trump supporters who believe bullshit because it is bullshit that you have been feeding them,” he added. “The president and you have been feeding them the BS, and now that they believe it, all of a sudden, again, another self-fulfilling prophecy and feedback loop. ‘I can’t believe that. My constituents believe this, so I must…’ It’s all BS! And it’s all made up!”
Lemon Compares Trump Supporters To Drug Addicts
This is far from the first time that Lemon has unloaded on Trump supporters. Just before the election, he went so far as to compare them to “drug addicts,” saying that he felt the need to cut Trump supporters out of his own personal life.
CNN’s Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon banded together on Monday evening to mock Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida for being open about his Christian faith.
“Mr. Bible Boy. He’s got a Bible quote for every moment,” Cuomo said. “He just never speaks truth to power or acts on any of it in the interest of his own state or of this country.”

Cuomo’s insulting monologue began as an airing of grievances by the corporate media anchors against President Donald Trump in light of a leaked call between him and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger about election integrity.
“We’ve never seen anybody abuse the office the way he has, not in our lifetime,” Cuomo said, with Lemon verbally affirming him while pouring a drink.
As the segment went on, however, Cuomo began bashing the GOP senators and representatives who announced they would object to the election certification on Jan. 6.
“Those who remain, the Kevin McCarthys, the people in the House, the people in Senate, who are enabling this, who are complicit in it,” Cuomo said. “This is the man he called Lyin’ Ted, the man he called Little Marco. … They remain, and they all know what they’re doing is bogus. What they are doing on [Jan. 6] is bogus.” Cuomo continued, “They say they have to do this, Don, because the irregularities demanded, but the irregularities on that tape, it’s not true.”
“It is embarrassing,” Lemon agreed.
This isn’t the first time the clearly left-wing anchors have used their platform to mock conservatives and misconstrue Christianity.
Earlier this year, Lemon claimed that “Jesus Christ, if that’s who you believe in, admittedly was not perfect when he was here on earth,” likening his false statement to “deifying the founders of this country” who owned slaves.
