CNN’s Don Lemon exploded on the Democratic Party Wednesday night, blasting the lawmakers for losing to Republicans and failing to “save this country.”
“Democrats get your butts in gear and get passionate about saving this damn country! You’re not doing it. You’re weak. You are weak. You are weak,” Lemon said.
“If you get someone in a ruby red state or rural state to understand that … then it’s a win for you,” Lemon said. “Republicans … are going around the country and they are winning with a lie. They’re able to get people on their side with a total lie and Democrats can’t get people motivated with the truth that will help them.”
“So what is going on with you? Why are you so bad at politicking? Why are you so bad at politics, Democrats?” Lemon added. “When you have the winning message, when you have the Senate and you have the Congress and you have the White House and you can’t win with a winning message, something is wrong.”
“And it’s not that the Republicans are doing this and that. They’re better at the messaging than you are! That’s what it is! It’s not the Republicans’ fault, it’s your fault. You have yourself to blame, Democrats. Get it together,” he said.

“I also want to talk about some uncomfortable truths. The truth about who really carries out domestic terror attacks in this country […] I said the biggest terror threat in this country comes from radicals on the far-right, primarily white men. That angered some people,” said Lemon.
