Don Lemon Seems to Suggest That Unvaccinated People Shouldn’t Have Hospital Access

As of this writing, neither CNN nor Don Lemon have issued an apology for this horrific and dangerous suggestion.

While there have long been fears that the segregation of the vaccinated from the unvaccinated here in the United States is a slippery slope to a clandestine and unconscionable caste system, there are very few people out there who are willing to admit that.

And, digging deeper, there are even fewer Americans who’d be willing to suggest that they’re in favor of treating the unvaccinated like second-class citizens.

CNN’s Don Lemon seems to have no qualms with this discriminatory practice.

Lemon, responding to a story about a man whose cancer-stricken wife was released from the hospital early because of a lack of beds and died, predicted to fellow CNN host Chris Cuomo that the future was going to be between the vaccinated and unvaccinated people across the country. He blamed “selfish” unvaccinated people putting stress and strain on the system.

“If you’re not going to get vaccinated, you don’t want to social distance, you don’t want to wear a mask, then maybe you don’t want to go to the hospital when you get sick,” Lemon said, visibly frustrated. “I know that sounds harsh, but you’re taking up the space for people who are doing things the right way.”

Lemon was unafraid of doubling down:

“You and I both agree … this is going to be between the vaccinated and the unvaccinated moving forward in this country,” he added. “And I just think if you don’t want to play by any of those rules and then all of a sudden you end up in the hospital, I feel bad – but maybe you shouldn’t go and take up the resources from someone else. That’s it.”

As of this writing, neither CNN nor Don Lemon have issued an apology for this horrific and dangerous suggestion.

CNN Makes Absurd Claim About ‘Fake Electors’ Plot

Dig deeper, however, and you’ll find that this is simply a ‘one source said’ situation.

When it comes to American politics, there is one thing that has become increasingly clear in the modern era:  Accuracy is not as impactful as a bodacious headline.

We are a nation bereft with drama, particularly as it pertains to our political sphere, and we are certainly suckers for hyperbole.  The mainstream media feeds of of this reality, whipping us into ever more fraught frenzies for the sake of ratings.

This week, the big “reveal” that CNN teased was some nigh-unbelievable plot regarding “fake electors” and Rudy Giuliani.

Officials on Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign, led by his lawyer Rudy Giuliani, oversaw efforts to put forward illegitimate electors from seven states that the former president lost, CNN reported on Thursday, citing three sources.

There were multiple planning calls between campaign officials and Republican Party state operatives with Giuliani being involved in at least one call, one source said, in efforts to stop Joe Biden’s victory when Congress met on Jan 6, 2021.

Of course, “one source said” is not exactly a profound endorsement of such a wild claim, and should be taken at face value.

This didn’t stop CNN from running with the story, however, and it even prompted a tirade by Anderson Cooper in primetime.

Major Conservative Personality Flips on 45: ‘Trump is Done!’

Are they really this out of tough with the Republican Party?

Published

on

On the right side of the aisle, there are few storylines as trite and tawdry as that of former President Donald Trump’s potential bid for reelection in 2024, and all of the strange circumstances that go along with it.

First, Trump is battling a number of challenges to his political career.  There is not only the January 6th select committee, that appears to be aiming their efforts at having Trump prosecuted in the coming months, but there is also the New York State Attorney General, who is investigating the Trump Organization and attempting to attack the former President through the targeting of his children. 

But now there are other issues for Trump, particularly as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis appears to be posturing himself for a run at the GOP nomination himself.  Trump has been quoted as wondering why DeSantis won’t simply support his own efforts, and the Sunshine State lawmaker has responded brutally.

This has led one of America’s most recognizable conservative pundits to speak up.

 Conservative pundit Ann Coulter is predicting the end of Donald Trump’s hegemony in the GOP, saying the former president “is done.”

“Trump is done,” Coulter, a onetime Trump booster turned critic, wrote in an email to The New York Times. “You guys should stop obsessing over him.”

Coulter’s comments came in an article published in the Times on Sunday about the mounting tensions between Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) amid speculation of a potential showdown for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.

This wasn’t the first time that Coulter has attacked Trump in recent days.

Coulter pounced on Trump over those comments in a tweet last week calling the former president a “liar and con man.”

“EXCLUSIVE: Trump is demanding to know Ron DeSantis’s booster status, and I can now reveal it,” Coulter wrote. “He was a loyal booster when Trump ran in 2016, but then he learned our president was a liar and con man whose grift was permanent. I hope that clears things up.”

While this certainly may make it seem as though Trump is facing some sort of serious threat to his potential nomination, polls have nearly universally shown him as the odds-on favorite for the 2024 nomination, besting even DeSantis by a vast number of points.
