During a recent CNN segment alongside Chris Cuomo, host Don Lemon accused Trump supporters of liking racism and misogyny.
After Cuomo suggested Trump supporters may think despite Trump’s flaws, Biden may be worse, Lemon responded with a stunning generalization of Trump supporters as racist and misogynist.
“I think you’re letting them off easy” Lemon said to Cuomo “I don’t believe that it’s just because they think Joe Biden would be worse. I think it’s because they like it, not a certain level, on many levels. They like what he presents. They like the lies, one would have to. If you don’t like the lies, then you’re not a supporter. They like the shiny objects. They like the racism. They like the misogyny. They like all of it because if they didn’t, they wouldn’t support him.”
Lemon continued “I actually think you’re letting them off easy because you’re telling me that someone you know is a liar, someone you know is a racist, someone that you know is a bigot, someone you know deceives, someone you can never believe the truth that comes out of their mouths, someone who downplays a deadly pandemic, someone who thinks it’s no big deal that 180,000 people have died”
“You’re telling me that the alternative is worse? What is worse than that?! There is nothing worse than that! … There is no evidence that Joe Biden would be worse!” he added.
