CNN’s Don Lemon weighed-in Tuesday on the violent protests sweeping every major American city in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd; saying “it means insurrection when people get tired if no one listens.”
“It does mean insurrection,” Lemon said, “It means insurrection when people get tired if no one listens. Then it fuels insurrection, you understand what I’m saying?”

“After a while, people say, ‘Look, I’m tired of this. I’m tired of it, and either you let me in, you understand me. I’m gonna force my way into the conversation. Force my way into the system. I’m gonna demand that you let me into the house,’ meaning — I’m talking about — you get what I’m saying, the metaphorical house,” he continued. “And you’re going to have to do it, and people aren’t going to like it. So, why can’t we all figure out how to do it now instead of an insurrection that happens because no one wants to change?”
