While appearing at Variety’s Entertainment & Technology NYC Summit on Friday, CNN propagandist Don Lemon claimed it was his “obligation as a journalist” to call President Donald Trump “racist,” Breitbart.com reported.
“If he is not racist he’s certainly is racist-adjacent,” he said when asked about calling the president a racist on air.
“If you have the evidence that shows you, that indicates, that leads you to nothing else but this president being racist, then I feel it’s my obligation as a journalist to say it. On that night I said it, and I don’t regret saying it. I believe that to be true,” he added.
He added: “Show me some evidence otherwise, besides I have black friends, I don’t really have any evidence of that either. I don’t. I mean when you say you have black friends, let’s just be honest here, when you say you have black friends, that doesn’t mean it’s people who come over to your office because they want something. It doesn’t mean it’s the people you work with because you have to be around them. If you have black friends it means these people have been in your life forever. You’ve been to their weddings. You, you know, hang out with them. You go for a run with them. You go to lunch with them. You vacation with them. You do things with them. You have dinner with them, you have lunch with them, you have breakfast with them. You hang out, you know their families. You spend Christmas, you spend holidays. That is what having a black friend means. I see no evidence of that either.”

By that “logic,” it’s my obligation as a blogger to call Lemon a far left-wing propagandist and a hack.
Remember, it wasn’t that long ago that Lemon told a conservative guest that she and others who think like her are “bad guys” if they criticize the Parkland anti-gun demagogues. He also defended the domestic terror group Antifa.
