On Monday night, near the end of his CNN Tonight show, host Don Lemon got into a heated debate with right-leaning CNN political commentator Tara Setmayer after she began criticizing the media for giving the anti-gun Parkland student activists a forum to make incendiary attacks on the NRA and other opponents of gun control.
After she complained that, if you criticize the behavior of some of the students, “all of a sudden you’re the bad guy,” Lemon shot back: “You are the bad guy. Yes, you are, you are. These kids suffered an unimaginable tragedy. You let them vent, and then you move on.”
Continuing to dismiss her concerns about giving air to one side of a political debate without being allowed to respond with appropriate criticism, he soon added: “We’re not elevating them. And they deserve to have every elevation because of what they went through, and we should listen to them because I can’t imagine what they went through.”
So, if you are traumatized, and under the age of 18 then you get to say whatever you want? No matter how false? Not only that, but everyone else must elevate you, and do whatever you suggest because if you don’t you are the BAD GUY! The truth? BAH! Don Lemon don’t need no stinkin’ truth!
