Everyone’s favorite CNN anchor interviewed Maryland governor Larry Hogan and Baltimore mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake late last night. The contentious 11-minute interview, during which Lemon repeatedly asked the two about their responses to yesterday’s protests and riots, did not end well.
How long you think it took for Don Lemon to say something infuriatingly dumb and insensitive on this rotten night? If you guessed less than a minute after Anderson Cooper threw to him, you guessed right.
CNN’s Don Lemon might as well have asked Joan Tarshis, “Did you try not getting raped by Bill Cosby?”
CNN's Don Lemon is having a tough year, and it's not getting any easier. But he's great for cautionary tales. When, for instance, he tries to have a Ferguson-related conversation about guns and mucks it all up, he offers us a chance to learn something important and improve the national conversation.
