Another major anchor at CNN revealed the stunning level of anti-Trump bias at the network this week; calling President Trump’s legal defense “laughable” and an attempt to “change the very fabric of the American presidency.”
Anchor Alisyn Camerota was speaking with Democratic Senator Sheldon Whitehouse when she made the surprising comment.
“I think professor Dershowitz has generated a lot of eye rolls during the course of his testimony because a lot of what he says is inconsistent with what he has said before, with what the consensus of scholarly and historical opinion is,” Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse said. “With what he has said in these very proceedings, in this case with common sense and decency.”
“What he’s saying is beyond laughable,” said Camerota. “Our legal experts have said that it changes the very fabric of the American presidency.”
NOT SORRY: Don Lemon Dodges Viral Video Mocking Trump Supporters, Says He Was Just 'Laughing at a Joke'
CNN host Don Lemon deflected criticism this week after a viral video showed his panel publicly mocking Trump supporters as illiterate; claiming he “didn’t catch everything that was said” during the segment.
“This is personally important to me to address this. Anyone who knows me will tell you that I don’t believe in belittling people, belittling anyone… During an interview on Saturday night my guest said something that made me laugh, in the moment I found that joke humorous,” said Lemon.
“I didn’t catch everything that was said. Just to be clear, I was laughing at the joke and not any group of people,” he added.

THIS IS CNN: Don Lemon Claims ‘White Men’ the Biggest ‘Terror Threat’ in the US
CNN host Don Lemon found himself in hot-water Wednesday after his unhinged rant Monday night; bizarrely claiming that “white men” pose the biggest “terror threat” to the United States yet there is no “white guy ban.”
“I keep trying to point out to people not to demonize any one group or any one ethnicity, but we keep thinking that the biggest terror threat is something else,” Lemon said. “Some people who are marching towards the border like it’s imminent. And the last time they did this, a couple of hundred people came and they, you know, most of them didn’t get into the country. Most of them got tuckered out before they even made it to the border.”

“So we have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them,” he added.
“There is no travel ban on them,” Lemon said. “There is no ban on… you know, they had the Muslim ban. There is no ‘white guy ban.’ So what do we do about that?”
