Apparently Don Lemon talked about right-wing extremism on his CNN show on Monday night and Rep. Steve Scalise had a simple yet hilarious response to Lemon’s claim that Democrats aren’t killing people.

Admit it. You laughed.
From National Review:
CNN anchor Don Lemon said on his show Monday that he sees only “right-wingers,” not Democrats, committing murders over their political beliefs.
Conservative commentator Mike Shields argued on Lemon’s show,”CNN Tonight,” that blaming “fear-mongering” from Fox News over the Central American immigrant caravan for the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh was “disgusting” and “outrageous.”
Shields brought up the Bernie Sanders supporter who shot Representative Steve Scalise at a Republican congressional baseball practice in 2017, apparently motivated by his political disagreements with the GOP.
Liberal commentator Max Boot accused Shields of blaming Sanders for the shooting, something he had not suggested and which he patently denied.
“You’re not being honest,” Lemon told Shields, a recurring guest on the show. “This is not equal, and I understand the whole argument about both sides.”
And if anyone knows about not being honest, it’s Don Lemon.
Apparently, he only watches CNN.

He's right. On @CNN he wouldn't see that.
