Kudos to Don Lemon for pointing out that Joe Biden needs to speak out forcefully against the violence in Kenosha and other cities around the country and calling for the riots to stop.
Of course, Lemon’s reasons for needing the riots to stop aren’t quite so noble:

And we can’t have that!

Ah yes. Because it hurts them in the polls

Yeah, Don. THAT'S why. https://t.co/Q30fvzeVFM

Plus, it’s wrong to burn down buildings.

No, no. Rioting is only bad when it hurts Democrats’ polling numbers.
If Democrats ever start directly condemning the rioting, this will be the reason. Might be too late for them by then. https://t.co/jqEQ8a1eml

It should be too late for them.

Lemon (and Cuomo) have given away the whole game. They don’t give a damn about people’s lives and livelihoods getting destroyed; they just want to be able to use violence to score political points.
Don Lemon mentions polling, and NOW it has to stop.
It didn’t have to stop when people were getting killed, brutally assaulted, having their homes and businesses destroyed.
The polling is why it has to stop. After months of cheerleading. https://t.co/L12vxwRFVY

So after directly or indirectly supporting riots, @ChrisCuomo & @donlemon have decided that the rioting has to stop, not because it is wrong to burn the livelihoods of innocent ppl, not because it wrong to assault and terrorize entire communities, but because it hurts Joe Biden. https://t.co/4f2NNfEl3R

Don't stop the riots because because people are being killed and injured. Don't stop them because property and it's attendant livelihoods and services to the community are being destroyed. Stop them because they're dinging our political prospects. https://t.co/yqy8qj1dDE

The rioting has to stop, not because it's killing people, not because it's destroying businesses or causing chaos and destruction in our cities. But because of the polling. Don Lemon has no soul. https://t.co/8d1JjnfZGx

Don Lemon’s in good company.
People, don’t pile on Don. We are actually fortunate to learn more about what they really think.
