Lemon wasn’t defending the officer, by any means, but he did dare to suggest that we wait until we have more information before blaming the officer entirely for what went down. Former federal prosecutor Sonny Hostin, however, said she had all the information she needed based on the short video clip that went viral yesterday. Here’s the exchange:

And now Lemon is getting trashed for what amounts to saying “something responsible”:
Don Lemon actually says something responsible. Libs on Twitter go apeshit.

Chris Hayes got why it was wrong. A white man in the media. But Don Lemon somehow needs more info. Trash.

Don Lemon probably peels the skin off his fried chicken.

I'd bet a million dollars that if you put a gun to Don Lemon's head and made him rap he would rhyme "here to say" and "major way."

Holstin jumped in and asked everyone to stop calling Lemon names. A little late for that, don’t you think?
While I disagree with my good friend @donlemon on the Spring Valley incident he is entitled to his opinion. Let's not name call Tweeps.
