CNN anchor Don Lemon unloaded on President Trump Tuesday night, viciously blaming the Commander-in-Chief for death threats leveled at the cable news network; breathlessly claiming the suspect was inspired by Trump’s repeated references to “fake news.”
“This story hits close to home. A Michigan man has been arrested after he allegedly made numerous calls to CNN headquarters in Atlanta threatening to kill this network’s employees,” said Lemon.
“There’s nothing random about this. Nothing. This is what happens when the President of the United States -Donald Trump- repeatedly attacks members of the press simply for reporting facts he does not like,” he added.
“Mr. President, I’m going to speak directly to you. We are not the enemy. We are not trying to silence you. It’s the job of the free press to report the facts, to ask question, tough questions, ones you don’t like,” said the CNN anchor. “When you make that baseless and incendiary charge, be aware that people are listening to you, some very dangerous people.”
