CNN’s Don Lemon hit a “vile” new low last night where he compared anyone who voted for President Trump to members of the Ku Klux Klan . . . and worse.
“. . .If you voted for Trump, you voted for the person the Klan supported. You voted for the person Nazis support. You voted for the person who the alt-right support. That’s the crowd you are in. You voted for the person who incited a crowd to go into the Capitol and potentially take the lives of lawmakers — took the lives of police officers. Took the lives, of innocent lives, who were there on the Capitol that date. You voted on that side. And the people in Washington are continuing to vote on that side.”

This really is truly “vile”:

And here’s Rep. Dan Crenshaw calling Lemon out, saying “this was always their intent” and “now they have to paint tens of millions of Americans as racists and bigots”:
This was always their intent. It’s not enough that their favorite villain is gone. Now they have to paint tens of millions of Americans as racists and bigots.
Truly vile, but incredibly predictable. https://t.co/HjsgaMuOQQ

But we’re glad he’s saying the quiet part out loud:
I can’t tell if I’m relieved that they’re saying this out loud so that we can all see plainly what their evil narrative is or if I’m scared because … they know they’ll get away with it https://t.co/xUGB5hp6jh

They've always felt this way about Republicans …. https://t.co/CeNgPq6YHf

Far too many people on the right kept telling me, 'Oh stop. You're being dramatic. They don't think all Trump supporters or Republicans or conservatives…" https://t.co/o4B98vBJ2X

And way to reach out to Trump voters, CNN:
That should bring 70 million people back into the CNN fold. https://t.co/kHfk0ySTNU

Don, this works both ways, you know:
"If you voted for Biden you voted for the party literally of the KKK, the party of killing David Dorn, the party of destroying cities and beating business owners." – @donlemon (though he's too dumb to realize it) #SickPeople https://t.co/WQaqbD3CFV
