CNN’s Don Lemon is one of the poster children for the network’s commitment to fake news and hating Donald Trump.
But now Lemon is the one under fire and having to answer difficult questions.
That’s because CNN’s Don Lemon was accused in this sexual assault scandal that will make your skin crawl.
Donald Trump routinely refers to Lemon as the “dumbest man on television.”
Lemon is a typical fake news CNN anchor that substitutes narrative for truth.
What that means is Lemon is more interested in telling a story than reporting the facts to the American people.
Lemon’s CNN program is an unending parade of Trump-haters, Never-Trump propagandists, con-men who pretend to be objective journalists, and “Republicans” giving their “objective” political analysis.
But now, Lemon is in the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
Dustin Hice – a bartender in the Hamptons – has filed suit against Lemon claiming that the CNN host sexually assaulted him last July when Lemon shoved his hand down his own pants, rubbed his genitals and then rubbed his fingers all over Hice’s face.
“Mr. Lemon, who was wearing a pair of shorts, sandals, and a t-shirt, put his hand down the front of his own shorts, and vigorously rubbed his genitalia, removed his hand and shoved his index and middle fingers in Plaintiff’s moustache and under Plaintiff’s nose,” Hice’s suit claimed.
CNN responded to the lawsuit by claiming Hice was an unhinged Trump supporter who fabricated the allegations to get back at CNN for negative coverage of the President.
“The plaintiff in this lawsuit has previously displayed a pattern of contempt for CNN on his social media accounts,” CNN declared in a statement to Mediaite.
“This claim follows his unsuccessful threats and demands for an exorbitant amount of money from Don Lemon. Don categorically denies these claims and this matter does not merit any further comment at this time.”
Had an individual lobbed these allegations against Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, or another Fox News host, you can be sure CNN would have made it the top story of the day.
Fake news CNN would’ve given it more airtime than whatever their manufactured outrage of the day was about President Trump.
CNN’s “media reporters” Brian Stelter and Oliver Darcy would have contacted all the host’s advertisers on Fox News to ask if they were comfortable running their ads on the program of a host facing serious sexual assault allegations.
Stelter and Darcy would have also made multiple on-air appearances questioning what this conduct revealed about the culture at Fox News as a way to pressure the network to take the host off the air.
But when it’s Don Lemon – one of their own – CNN tries their best to suppress the story.
Neither one tweeted about the story, and a search of CNN.com for “Don Lemon” yielded no results of any published pieces covering the allegations.
CNN did briefly cover the story in Stelter’s daily media newsletter, but the only link was to Mediaite’s reporting on CNN defending Lemon – and the only way to know that CNN acknowledged these charges was to subscribe to the email newsletter.
Much like the viral video of Chris Cuomo threatening to kill a man by throwing him down the stairs, left-wing fake news reporters circled the wagons around Lemon and offered him the benefit of the doubt – something they never would’ve extended to a Fox News host.
