Don Lemon has said a number of controversial and questionable things on CNN.
There’s that one time he accused everyone of being too afraid to talk about “white terrorism.”
Then there’s that one time he defended AOC’s fake “blaccent.”
"We're talking about code-switching. I do it, we all do it. There is a difference between mocking someone and knowing your audience." — @DonLemon

And who could forget about the time a hot mic picked up Lemon giving Cory Booker props during his (Booker’s) town hall?

And most recently? He said Pelosi is “really getting under the President’s skin.”
CNN's @donlemon: Nancy Pelosi is "really getting under the President's skin. It's no surprise he is dangling a shiny object in front of you … announcing that he is directing the intelligence community to assist his handpicked attorney general" in his review of the Russia probe pic.twitter.com/iuVqSl1fbS

President Trump has clearly had enough.
Wow! CNN Ratings are WAY DOWN, record lows. People are getting tired of so many Fake Stories and Anti-Trump lies. Chris Cuomo was rewarded for lowest morning ratings with a prime time spot – which is failing badly and not helping the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon!

This isn’t the first time he’s called Lemon the “dumbest man on television.”
Another false story, this time in the Failing @nytimes, that I watch 4-8 hours of television a day – Wrong! Also, I seldom, if ever, watch CNN or MSNBC, both of which I consider Fake News. I never watch Don Lemon, who I once called the “dumbest man on television!” Bad Reporting.

Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!
