CNN’s Don Lemon and Jake Tapper were mocked on social media after heaping praise on Joe Biden after his CNN interview.
Lemon said “We heard no fake news. We heard no conspiracy theories. We heard no personal grievances. We heard a president-elect and a vice president who want to work with the other side.”
Lemon added “I thought this was a very important question and a great answer from him, when you said is it important for that the current president is at your inauguration and he laughed and everyone knew what he was thinking, and then he went on to give I thought was a great answer. He said it’s important to the country, that the country sees a smooth transition. That is what we need, Jake.” Tapper agreed, saying “I mean, there certainly was a lot of the right answers, in terms of the Justice Department is not mine, it’s the people’s Justice Department and you know, I’m not going to do this, I’m not going to do that.”
