Don Lemon Makes Asinine Claim Regarding Second Amendment

Don Lemon makes too much money to be this ignorant.

Don Lemon

It can be more than a bit disheartening to have to continually explain the not-so-intricate ins and outs of the Second Amendment to people, especially those with a net worth as high as Don Lemon’s.

Lemon, who is a star anchor over at CNN, has long been open about his rampant liberalism.  His cynical and sarcastic tone has him playing the role of a macabre Trevor Noah, delivering all of the predictable leftist spin with none of the punchlines.  His usual delivery tends to fall into dry, sarcastic, and sardonic – often allowing the viewer to read his mind as he tumbles toward the final breaths of any particular sentiment.  (This is a genius move for Lemon, who allows himself to be interpreted by the audience in order to appear complementary to their own beliefs).

The problem is that, for all of Don Lemon’s cunning traits, he is still unable to fully recognize the nature of the right to bear arms in America.

CNN host Don Lemon suggested we have to stop pretending the Second Amendment is “above all” and therefore “sacrosanct.” He made the claim as part of his reaction to the Thousand Oaks, California, shooting.

He said, “I don’t think it’s too much to ask for guns, Second Amendment right, and sense with it.”

Lemon’s segment began with he and fellow host Chris Cuomo pleading for more gun control. Their conversation included everything from Lemon suggesting our Founding Fathers had no idea the types of firearms that would exist in the 21st century to Cuomo arguing that our Founding Fathers did not intend the Second Amendment to be second.

At one point Lemon said, “We have to stop pretending that the Second Amendment is the amendment above all that’s sacrosanct.”

What Lemon has failed to realize is that the Second Amendment will only ever be called upon when it is threatened by men such as he.  It isn’t so much an active right as it is an insurance policy against its own disappearance.  It activates only when an attempt to deactivate it occurs.

So, maybe it’s not “sacrosanct” per se, but it is certainly impervious to infringement.

Confirmed: Mitt Romney Used Secret Twitter Account to Defend Himself From President Trump

What in the world?

Is Mitt Romney in junior high? What kind of grown man uses a secret Twitter account? Of course, Romney probably doesn’t tweet himself but this means he had a proxy do it for him. Same difference. It would appear as if Mitt is still pretty sore from losing the 2012 presidential election to Barack Obama, which he should’ve easily won. In that regard, he’s a lot like Hillary Clinton. Why the guy keeps going against President Trump in a time when the radically far-left media and Congressional Democrats won’t lay off makes little sense. But, that’s not about to trip up the Utah senator anytime soon. From Daily Wire: During an interview with The Atlantic, Romney made the revelation that he had a secret Twitter account: “That’s kind of what he does,” Romney said with a shrug, and then got up to retrieve an iPad from his desk. He explained that he uses a secret Twitter account—“What do they call me, a lurker?”—to keep tabs on the political conversation. “I won’t give you the name of it,” he said [emphasis added], but “I’m following 668 people.” Swiping at his tablet, he recited some of the accounts he follows, including journalists, late-night comedians (“What’s his name, the big redhead from Boston?”), and athletes. Trump was not among them. “He tweets so much,” Romney said, comparing the president to one of his nieces who overshares on Instagram. “I love her, but it’s like, ah, it’s too much.” Romney confirmed the fake account was his: Just spoke to @MittRomney on the phone, and asked him about Pierre Delecto. His only response: “C’est moi.” Updated my story accordingly: https://twitter.com/mckaycoppins/status/1186093210214510593?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1186093210214510593&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fa-total-loser-romney-mocked-after-using-secret-twitter-account-to-defend-himself-report-suggests Former conservative Bill Kristol posed a question on Twitter… Let’s see how much of a hellscape Twitter is.

‘Well-Connected’ Republican Tells Fox News Host There’s 20% Chance GOP Senate Removes Trump

Seems awfully high…

Fox News’ host Chris Wallace isn’t exactly “in the bag” for President Trump. Wallace has been against 45 for a good while now. On Sunday, he made a big announcement that many people may find unsettling. Apparently, a big-name Republican – who, of course, shall remain nameless – told Wallace that there’s a decent chance the GOP-controlled Senate could potentially move to impeach Trump. If true, why? Why would the GOP do such a silly, silly thing and give the left a win in a time when unemployment is at record lows and the economy is doing well? Here’s Chris… From Washington Examiner: Fox News host Chris Wallace said he was told by a well-known GOP source that there is a 1-in-5 chance President Trump will be removed from office if the Senate holds an impeachment trial. The figure came up during a conversation with acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney on Fox News Sunday as the two discussed the controversies the Trump administration faces related to Ukraine and Syria. Wallace said, “I talked to a very well-connected Republican in Washington this week, somebody whose name you would know well, who says that if the House votes to impeach and it gets to a trial in the Senate, there is now a 20% chance he believes — obviously, it’s just an estimate — now a 20% chance enough Republicans will vote with the Democrats to remove the president.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4Zjtcml7lU BREAKING: New leaked video from inside CNN: President Jeff Zucker tells employees to push “impeachment” and that all of CNN’s stories should be about “moves towards impeachment” One of CNN’s employees says Zucker has a “personal vendetta against Trump” https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1183780647522856960?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1183780647522856960&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F435181-project-veritas-video-cnns-jeff-zucker-directing-employees-to-push-impeachment%2F WATCH: Nancy Pelosi compares Democrats’ impeachment inquiry to the American Revolution War https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1184922572246274048?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1184922572246274048&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fdougp-3137%2F2019%2F10%2F17%2Fcome-on-nancy-pelosi-compares-dems-impeachment-threats-to-the-american-revolution%2F Reaction: The revolutionary war was fought…
