Lemon Demands: ‘Stop Beating Up’ Biden, ‘We Don’t Know’ If People Were Left Behind
The liberal media’s fever may have finally broken after spending the last two weeks or so heavily criticizing President Biden’s unmitigated disaster of a withdrawal from Afghanistan. On Wednesday’s edition of his show, CNN’s Don Lemon spent most of the hand-off from Cuomo Prime Time demanding people be “level-headed” and “stop beating up on” the President. He even went so far as to claim that “we didn’t know if we left them behind yet.”
“But, you know, I think people should stop beating up on the administration so much because no matter how it ended, everyone wasn’t going to be happy with the way it ended,” he proclaimed. And after repeating that demand one more time, Lemon praised Biden for supposedly “having the guts” other presidents didn’t “to get us out of Afghanistan.”
But wasn’t the situation former President Trump’s fault?
Following some pushback from Chris Cuomo, where he wanted “a plan and an urgency to get the people out as promised,” Lemon began to lash out at the majority of Americans who were outraged at the way the withdraw was handled and were upset Americans got left behind. “It’s TDB, to be determined. We’re still seeing what’s happening,” he said.
“You can’t get them all out in five minutes,” he huffed. “You can’t get them all out yesterday.” He then suggested the outraged were being hysterical, and we didn’t know if we had truly left people behind:
So, what happens going forward, if we continue with this effort to get them out and we start getting them out, as many out as possible, then I think we should stop running around like, “on my gosh, I can’t believe we left so many people behind.” We don’t know if we left them behind yet. We don’t know that.
According to Lemon’s logic. Kevin McCallister was never left behind in Home Alone because his parents came back to get him…eventually.
“I know, but here’s the one thing you forget,” Cuomo responded. “It’s easy to be level-headed when nobody’s chasing you with a machete.”
Don Lemon’s defense of President Biden’s deadly disaster and contempt for those stuck in Afghanistan was made possible because of lucrative sponsorships from SimpliSafe and Trivago. Their contact information is linked so you can tell them about the biased news they fund.
