Across the spectrum of the left-wing media, there’s a deluge of clowns making a living peddling Soviet-level propaganda on a daily basis. It’s truly remarkable the kinds of intellectual lightweights that are tasked with telling the nation what and how to think.
One of the most amusing of the bunch is CNN’s Don Lemon, who routinely makes a fool of himself. He’s made a habit out of cutting off guests when they start blowing him out of the water, going so far as to cut to commercial or their mics. On Thursday, Lemon once again targeted the lone conservative on his panel by throwing a tantrum and cutting to commercial.
As reported at the Daily Mail, political commentators Ben Ferguson, Tara Setmayer, and Bakari Sellers were on CNN to discuss President Trump’s interview with the New York Times, in which he said some interesting things about Meuller’s Russia investigation.
The conservative Ferguson, when finally given his turn to speak, started bringing up the extreme double standard when it comes to the left-wing media’s fascination with federal probes.
He mentioned what he called the Obama administration’s “special treatment” of Hillary Clinton and her aide Huma Abedin when it came to the email inquiry. Saying that Democrats and the media interestingly weren’t calling for investigations into the issue, or any other for that matter.
Lemon didn’t like having his team’s rampant hypocrisy being exposed, so he began a shouting match with Ferguson, saying that the discussion has nothing to do with Clinton or Obama before cutting to commercial. When the show returned, Lemon said that Ferguson was welcome to make his point, so long as it was about Trump only, not providing concrete examples of the Left’s lack of integrity and love of double standards.
“But I don’t wanna hear about Benghazi, I don’t want to hear about uranium, it has been litigated a million times,” Lemon claimed. No, Don, those issues haven’t. Your comrades dismissing them outright is not litigation.
Ferguson accused him of not wanting to discuss Clinton because it did not fit his narrative, to which Lemon responded that it is irrelevant. How convenient, that it’s “irrelevant” to talk about the disparity in treatment between Trump and Clinton, even though the latter has clear evidence showing she committed a crime. Whereas as the witch-hunt against Trump in the media and by Mueller has yet to produce anything.
Ferguson then accused Lemon of letting Sellers speak because he agrees with him, to which Lemon fired back:
“No it is not because I agree with it all, it’s because he is talking about things that are relevant, things that have to do with now! Not some bull from the past that has been litigated over and over and is not relevant anymore! Every time, someone goes; “Oh but her emails, oh but uranium!” Lemon shouted.
Lemon finished his tirade by telling Ferguson and the other panelists to turn the conversation back to the Trump interview, “instead of going back in time in a time machine and talking about something and someone who is not president anymore.“
The sheer amount of hypocrisy is unbelievable. Something that happened last year is now irrelevant solely because it makes his side look bad and detracts from the propaganda war the Left’s waging against Trump. And apparently saying anything about Obama is as well, since he’s not president anymore. I seem to remember Bush being brought up throughout the duration of Obama’s presidency, always a convenient scapegoat and easy person to blame for things that didn’t go right.
Hypocrisy is a core tenant of left-wing ideology, as it falls apart without it. People like Lemon understand that, which is why they’re always so eager to shut up anyone who points it out. Lemon’s a pro when it comes to shutting down information he doesn’t agree with, and I’m sure we’ll be seeing another episode like this one in the near future.
