NO ONE IS BUYING THAT, DON! Lemon Cites 'Constitution' for CNN Fallout [WATCH]

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.26.23

This is a stretch —even for Don Lemon.

While speaking to ABC24 in Memphis over the weekend, former CNN anchor Don Lemon spoke about his commitment to the truth and his loyalty to the Constitution, saying he doesn’t believe in “platforming liars and bigots” and putting them on the “same footing as people who are abiding by the Constitution,” The New York Post reports.

Give u a break, Don.

From The New York Post:

“I have a responsibility — not only as a journalist but as an American — to tell the truth and to abide by the promises of the Constitution,” he told the outlet. “Because the Constitution says a more perfect union, not a perfect union. I’m not a perfect person. No one is.

“In order to fulfill the promise of the Constitution, we have to stand up for what is right. We have to stand up for the truth,” Lemon continued.

The newsman went on to describe his journalistic philosophy honed over the years.

“I don’t believe in platforming liars and bigots, insurrectionists and election deniers and putting them on the same footing as people who are telling the truth — people who are fighting for what’s right, people who are abiding by the Constitution,” he told ABC24.

Is Lemon implying that he is one of the people “telling the truth?”

“I think that would be a dereliction of journalistic duty to do those sorts of things,” Lemon added. “That is what has gotten me to this point, and that is what is going to carry me forward.

“To know that I am standing up and abiding by the Constitution, which my profession demands that I do because we are listing in the First Amendment of the Constitution, which is freedom of speech, freedom of expression and freedom of the press,” he went on.
