If there is one thing that the mainstream media wants you to know, it’s that Donald Trump hates everyone. He’s a sexist, a homophobe, a bigot, a racist, an agist…the list goes on and on in the infotainment realm.
So it should come as no surprise that CNN’s Don Lemon used his platform to again insinuate that the elected leader of the free world is lobbing derogatory slurs at other nations, this time by simply using a geographical reference to describe a pandemic.
From his Thursday night broadcast:
Lemon said, “Well, today, if it wasn’t already obvious to you what President Trump has done to the highest office in the land, it should be. All day, from first thing this morning until night, three decades…of presidential leadership on display, living proof. You have President Trump, and you had the three presidents who proceeded him. You had Bill Clinton, you had George W. Bush, and you had Barack Obama. Today, we saw what it means to be president. We saw the dignity the office can bestow, and the dignity that can be stripped away. So, why don’t we begin with the current president, who, with the death toll from the coronavirus in this country passing 152,000, and while mourning Herman Cain, who died of the virus, just can’t resist lobbing a slur at China.”
Lemon then played a clip of Trump speaking about Cain earlier in the day where he stated that Cain passed away from “the China virus.”
Of course, CNN’s hosts don’t have any trouble referring to the 1918 pandemic as the “Spanish Flu”.
