During his nightly handoff to his friend Chris Cuomo, CNN Host Don Lemon made the drastic statement “we’re going to have to blow up the entire system.”
Cuomo replied “I don’t know about that.”
The two then spoke on top of each other while Cuomo appeared to say “you just got to vote.”
Lemon said “and you know what we’re going to have to do? You’re going to have to get rid of the electoral college.”
Cuomo interjected “I don’t see it.”
Lemon continued “Because the minority in this country decides who our judges are and they decide who their president is. Is that fair?”
“You need a constitutional amendment to do that,” Cuomo interjected again.
“AND If Joe Biden wins, Democrats can stack the courts and they can do that amendment and they can get it passed,” Lemon claimed.
Cuomo then poured cold water on Lemon’s idea again, saying “Well you need two thirds vote in the Congress and three quarters of the state legislature.”
“They may be able to do that,” Lemon fired back, perhaps naive to the reality of the math Cuomo just explained to him and how that would be likely impossible given the composition of Democrats and Republicans in Congress.
