Don Lemon faces backlash for calling to “shame” unvaccinated Americans

The panel on “Outnumbered” blasted CNN host Don Lemon for calling for shame unvaccinated Americans.

During a bizarre discussion with his fellow CNN host Chris Cuomo, host Don Lemon said it’s time to start “shaming” unvaccinated people “or leave them behind.”

“I think we have to stop coddling people when it comes to … the vaccines,” Lemon said. ” ‘Oh you can’t shame them. You can’t call them stupid.’ Yes, they are. The people who aided and abetted Trump are stupid because they believed his big lie.”

“The people who are not getting vaccines who are believing the lies on the internet instead of science, it’s time to start shaming them or leave them behind,” he continued.
