Video: GOP Wallops CNN’s Lemon In A New Ad After Fake Apology
After a video of Don Lemon and his two guests demeaning and making fun of Trump supporters went viral, Lemon tried to “apologize” and it was almost as bad as the video. The GOP did not let that video go to waste and released a video walloping Lemon.
On Tuesday CNN’s network host, Don Lemon tried to address the controversy that included Rick Wilson and Wajahat Ali, it was a segment that even President Trump tweeted out.

Lemon explained that even though he was laughing he was not really laughing at Trump supporters. He was only laughing a the joke told by Wilson and that he does not laugh at people for “who they are” or “for what they believe.”
“One final note that I have for you because this is personally important to me to address this,” Lemon said. Anyone, ask anyone who knows me, they’ll tell you, I don’t believe in belittling people. Belittling anyone for who they are, for what they believe, or where they’re from. During an interview on Saturday night, one of my guests said something that made me laugh. And while in the moment I found the joke humorous, and I didn’t catch everything that was said. Just to make this perfectly clear — I was laughing at the joke and not at any group of people.”
I believe that about as much as I believe anything that comes out of CNN’s Joe Lockhart especially after he got caught making up a conversation he claims he heard two Republican senators having.
If Lemon was hoping his “apology” would clear things up he’s dead wrong, conservatives walloped Lemon and below is the ad the GOP made.
They think you’re a joke.
Prove them wrong in November.

Weak. I wonder how Don would feel if someone was doing a skit on black people or gay people that is demeaning and a white network host was laughing. I doubt Don would be so understanding. In fact, he would be first to call for their firing and heck even making it a hate crime.

this is far and away the least believable justification for wrongdoing I have ever heard and I’m a mother of young children. https://t.co/VI9PkGNzKM
