Don Lemon Says He Had to “Get Rid of a Lot of Friends” For Supporting Trump, Referred to Them as ‘Addicts’

"Objective journalist" Don Lemon compared former friends of his to "addicts" who had to hit rock bottom because they supported President Donald Trump.


How much longer will Americans allow Don Lemon to keep claiming to be an “objective journalist?”

Lemon and his buddy Chris Cuomo on CNN were criticizing President Donald Trump for holding rallies, and made the suggestion that perhaps Trump supporters were beyond saving.

Lemon claimed that he had to get rid of friends, including people that he “loved,” because they supported President Trump.

Lemon compared these “friends” of his to drug addicts who aren’t worth having around and have to hit rock bottom.

Our friends over at Fox News have more on Lemon's statement about his former friends:

"You know what the sad thing is? And I'll be honest with you ... I've had many people who I love in my life- and yeah I come from a red state, I've lived in several red states, there are a lot of friends who I've had to really get rid of because they are so nonsensical when it comes to this issue," Lemon said. "They have every single talking point that they hear on state TV and that they hear from this president, they repeat it and they're blinded by it."

"I had to get rid of them because they're too far gone. I try and I try and I try, they say something really stupid and then I'll show them the science and I'll give them the information, and they still repeat those talking points," Lemon told Cuomo. "I had to get rid of a lot of people in my life because sometimes you've just got to let them go. I think they have to hit rock bottom like an addict, right? And they have to want to get help, they have to want to know the truth, they have to want to live in reality, they have to want to be responsible not only for other people's lives but for their lives."

He continued, "It's so sad. And I don't know if after this I'll ever be able to go back and be friends with those people because, at a certain point, you just say they're too far gone and I've got to let them go. And if they're willing to come back, they're willing to live in reality, then I would welcome them with open arms. But I can't do it, I can't do it anymore."

Maybe Don Lemon needs to reconsider some of his other friends...
