CNN host Don Lemon is a moron.
During an interview this morning Lemon made a complete fool of himself by claiming that unvaccinated “idiots” are not capable of doing their own research and are hurting the country.
Watch the whole thing:
Given that vaccinated people can still get and spread covid maybe Don Lemon should look in the mirror before trying to pass judgement on others.
Especially when that judgement is totally wrong and make him look like the fool he really is.
Read this transcript of the segment, it is very enlightening and shows how these people really think:
BERMAN: “Don, we talk about such weighty subjects here with you when you come on, but there is something we want to show you. It’s about a weight subject, admittedly, but I’m curious whether or not it makes you smile a bit. So watch this. This is a TV host talking about vaccines.”
SCHWEBEL (speaking Spanish): “You damned antivaxxers, gaggle of morons! Stop with your [bleep] and at least put on a [bleep] mask and stop hitting the brakes for the entire world! Yes, you antivaxxers, you are a moron! Put on a face mask!”
BERMAN: “That was not on ‘Don Lemon Tonight,’ by the way.”
HUNT: “Could it be?”
LEMON: “I was going to say, it could have been. I mean, I’ve gotten criticized for saying that we need to stop listening to the people and they should not be part of polite society, so to speak. You cannot expect — by the way, he is all of us. You know, I want to say you — “
BERMAN: “You’re jealous of him, right?”
LEMON: “I’m mad as hell and I’m not taking it anymore. Basically, that was that moment. He’s right. He’s right. Listen, the unvaccinated people in the U.S. are key to the reason that Coronavirus, the variants are emerging, and that the reason I’m looking at the stats from the CDC and the reason why it’s replicating and mutating, it’s because of unvaccinated people who are doing their own research online. I can’t do my own research better than experts who devoted their lives to medical and scientific research. When I tell people, they’ll say, ‘Well, I’ve been doing my own research and last week I was in Miami.’ I said, ‘How did you get to Miami?’ ‘I flew.’ ‘That’s science. So if you don’t believe in science, why didn’t you walk? Right?’ He says, ‘Because I can’t always follow the science.’ That’s the reason that you’re here. That’s the reason that you don’t have polio. That’s the reason we don’t see polio cases. That’s the reason why we don’t see smallpox cases, is because your parents had the wherewithal and the sense to get you vaccinated as a child.”
HUNT: “Or told that they had to.”
LEMON: “That you had to, because what? We had to start doing things for the greater good of society and not for idiots who think that they can do their own research or that they’ve above the law and they can break the rules. Australia, Novak Djokovic, Australia said, ‘No, no, no, no. We’re going to look at the greater good of everyone in our society and you’re not part of that. We don’t care that you’re the number one tennis player in the world.’ And good on them, because they are keeping their population and their citizens, people who want to be good citizens, they’re keeping them healthy and safe and alive, and not for someone who thinks that they can come in, do their own research, get Covid, spread it to other people, not wear masks, like the guy, the TV presenter said, and then infect all of us and keep all of us in the house, or from going to work, or from being able to do what they want to do. That’s it. I’m done. I’m off of my soap box.”
BERMAN: “I doubt that’s true. I doubt you’re off of your soap box, A. B — “
HUNT: “You have a show tonight.”
BERMAN: “I’m flying to Washington later today. When I land, as soon as the plane touches down, I’m going to yell ‘That’s science!’”
LEMON: “It’s true! And hopefully everybody on the plane is wearing one of these.”
HUNT: “They have to, by law.”
