CNN is worried about the 2020 race.
The left-wing network is starting to understand they don’t have a strong candidate to face off against Trump.
In order to improve their 2020 chances, CNN just told one unbelievable lie about the Democrat Party.
CNN’s Don Lemon has disgraced himself numerous times on his show.
Most recently, he doubled over in laughter as two panelists on his show mocked Trump supporters by affecting cartoonish southern accents.
Lemon responded to backlash by issuing a non-apology.
The only reason he addressed the criticism at all is because he senses the public is not with CNN.
The Democrats and their media allies have a terrible perception problem, and that viral clip on Lemon’s show did not help.
The party is rightly perceived as being too far left.
A 78-year-old life-long communist who recently had a heart attack is on the precipice of winning the party’s nomination.
Even hosts on CNN and MSNBC are concerned about the far-left tilt of the Democrats.
Lemon tried to paper over this concern with one absurd lie.
During a discussion with CNN analyst Joe Lockhart, Lemon said:
“[W]e’ve had this whole thing about, you know, ‘The Democrats are moving to the left’ and ‘it’s socialist’ and on and on and on. And so I’ve been giving people the facts about the Democratic party that it’s actually a centrist party.”
Lemon’s statement is a fiction.
Fittingly, he had this discussion with Lockhart, who recently fabricated a conversation between two Republicans senators regarding the Senate impeachment hearings.
Just because Lemon says the Democrats are a centrist party doesn’t make it so.
Democrats have moved far left on a number of issues.
The fact that essentially every candidate running as a Democrat embraced all or part of Sanders’ socialist platform.
The Democrats have gone from skepticism and aversion to illegal immigration, to fiercely advocating for open borders.
They’ve gone from Medicare and Medicaid expansion to a complete government takeover of the healthcare industry, including “free” healthcare for illegal aliens.
On the issue of abortion, they’ve gone from “safe, legal, and rare” to “shout your abortions!”
The leadership of the Democrat Party, including DNC chair Tom Perez, said pro-lifers no longer have a place in the Democrat Party.
New York state legislators ghoulishly celebrated passing a law that permitted abortion up to the point of birth.
Governor of Virginia Ralph Northam said during a radio interview that post-birth abortions should be legal so long as the baby is “comfortable.”
Also in Virginia, the state has become a flashpoint on gun control.
Democrats are making aggressive pushes to curtail Second Amendment rights.
Some are calling for flat-out confiscation.
And on the issue of transgenderism and gender fluidity, the left wants everyone to buy into the delusion that people can change their gender on a daily basis, and they want civil rights protections for this activist state of mind.
Nothing about Democrats is centrist.
Their voter base may not be on the board, but the party leadership is definitely going on the rails on a crazy train.
