Don Lemon wanted everybody to know how hard it’s been to be an actual journalist these last four years, but since he couldn’t find any of them at CNN, he decided to explain himself:
I don’t dare speak fir my colleagues, but I can’t tell you how difficult it’s been as a journalist to cover this dark part of our history. Let’s hope the attacks on journalists, journalism and EVERYONE end. Time to move into the light. #america

Nobody brings the drama like a CNN “journalist”:
Oh you poor little lamb.

Sitting at a desk at CNN headquarters and repeating DNC talking points certainly takes a toll!
Oh you poor thing. Let me forward your tweet to some of my buddies overseas so they can send you some flowers. https://t.co/F2LjS7Z6ey

If Biden uses the same tactics as Obama did with journalists, sources will be prosecuted and reporters will be spied on. https://t.co/RRSetodYLD

The mythology you’ve created in your mind about American history will continue to thwart your ability to be a serious journalist https://t.co/ftE6rmSlBU

You said that anyone who questioned Jussie Smollett’s story were doing so solely because they were racist.
You and your industry (but you especially) need more scrutiny, not less. https://t.co/JOj884MTTj

You can't tell us anything about what it's like to be a journalist, Don. https://t.co/JWtpdZzZd7

The media’s spent the better part of today proving Trump’s criticisms correct and don’t realize it.

It was that bad not being able to cover all the real hard stories about the President like what his favorite ice cream was or who he picked in his March Madness brackets?

And if Biden is declared the official winner, everybody knows what comes next:
You’ve earned a four-year vacation. https://t.co/W3Bdg95DO5

Enjoy your four year vacation.
Pro tip for the next time a Republican is president and you have to work again: your jobs would be easier if you just reported on the facts like you're supposed to. https://t.co/FNUxVeOLQW

Has CNN thought about what they’ll obsess over when Trump is no longer in the White House? This could be another example of “be careful what you ask for.”
