Total Meltdown: CNN's Don Lemon Self-Destructs After Trump's Phoenix RallyMatt VespaPosted: Aug 23, 2017
If there was one person who was not at all happy with Donald Trump’s speech in Phoenix, Arizona, it was Don Lemon. The CNN host said the rally was “unhinged,” “embarrassing,” and questioned the president’s fitness for office. Trump went after the media, went after Sens. Jeff Flake and John McCain, though didn’t mention them by name, and heavily insinuated that he would issue a pardon to Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was convicted of violating a federal court order to end racial profiling of Hispanics. Folks, this isn’t anything we haven’t heard before, it wasn’t out of the ordinary than what we’ve seen at Trump rallies. Yes, maybe there were some areas where criticisms could be lobbed at the president, but as always—the media overreached. The only thing that happened on that network last night was solidification of support among Trump’s base. The poll showing 60 percent of people who said they would never stop approving of Donald Trump probably went up a few notches if you saw what occurred on that network last night. If you thought Trump’s speech was unhinged, just imagine listening to non-medical professionals trying to diagnose whether Trump was insane or not, and then debating the semantics and appropriate situation in which the word “insane” should be used. CNN made the case for why the media’s credibility is in the toilet, and how the liberal media still cannot get over the fact that Hillary Clinton lost the election.
