Don Lemon Rants About Trump's "Racism."But Trump's an Equal Opportunity Insulter.
Pro-tip to the left: if y'all wanted the "RACIST!" brand to take, you shouldn't have tossed the slur as casually as a zoo monkey flings its jizz. Which isn't a racist comparison. Have you seen zoo monkeys? Because now, whenever someone on the left accuses someone on the right of being a RACIST (yes, in all caps), most of us shrug. Someone get a memo to CNN's Don Lemon. Who took issue with Trump's tweet about Lebron, Don and Michael Jordan oh my.
First, the tweet in question:
Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn… https://t.co/pLmjfeGj6d— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1533353856.0
Now the video of Don "The plane could've disappeared into a black hole, though" Lemon:
This president constantly denigrates people of color – and women too. Congresswoman Maxine Waters, his new favorite target. But then again, this is the same man who for years tried to deny the legitimacy of America's first black president by questioning over and over and over whether Barack Obama was born in this country. And black athletes who kneel during the national anthem as a form of protest against racism and police brutality? Well, they get this disrespect.
M'kay. Honest question: which politician is dumber than Maxine Waters? I'd say Nancy Pelosi, but I'm not quite certain of it. Maxine is skewing the IQ curve for Congress. Not in a good way, is all I'm saying.
President Trump is trying a divide and conquer strategy and here is how it goes. He divides by race and tries to conquer decency by smearing and besmirching the truth and the people who fight to uphold it.
Wait, Trump or Obama? Remember the bitter clinger comments? Remember when Biden said Romney was going to put black people "back in chains"? Was that dividing people by race or no? I engage in this flippant whataboutism for context. Seems like Don "It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a black hole shaped as a bird eating a plane" Lemon is a little selective about his racist outrage.
Oh sorry, for those of you who're missing the context of my black hole Don Lemon jokes, here's Don Lemon inquiring about black holes swallowing up airplanes:
So that's Don Lemon. MENSA probably isn't leaving "Sorry we missed you" calling cards on his door.
By the by, it's not racist to call a black person stupid if that black person is, in fact, stupid. Same goes for Maxine Waters, who's two brain cells shy of a paramecium.
Here's my real problem with Don "But is a black hole preposterous?" Lemon taking issue with Trump insulting black people and women: Trump insults everyone. Trump hinted that Ted Cruz's father may have played a role in Kennedy's assassination. Donald Trump calls Kim Jong Un "Rocket Man." Here's a clip of Trump saying Bill Clinton was abusive to women.
So certain was I that Donald Trump is an equal opportunity insulter/kind of an ass, I Googled "people Donald Trump has insulted" knowing I'd get a lot of listicles. The Google machine did not disappoint. Here's a handy New York Times article of all the insults and entities insulted by Donald Trump since 2016 alone. Plenty of white men, companies owned by white men, and people of all colors, races, and ideologies make the list. If only Don "THE HOLEZ ARE BLACK!" Lemon had thought to type some words into a search engine before making a butthead out of himself.
If Donald Trump insults everyone, even black people and women, doesn't that mean Trump's not a racist or a sexist? Because of that pesky equality? Is Don "The plane got sucked up by a black hole" Lemon, when he's asking for stupid people not to be called stupid if they're being stupid while black, actually being the real racist by suggesting black people shouldn't be called stupid if, in fact, they're stupid?
Lemme break it down in another way, for Don "BUT THE BLACK HOLE!" Lemon: if a woman says something stupid, like I dunno... that maybe a black hole sucked up an airplane, is it sexist to tell that women she's stupid? Or is she, in fact, just dumber than a stack of Cosmopolitan quizzes? Even if there's a sexist history of men telling women they're not smart enough to function in basic society.
In case someone missed my tone from the paragraphs heretofore, I think Don Lemon is a moron. Not because he's black. But because there's mounting evidence he's a moron. See the black hole video above. One cannot obtain a stupidity hall pass simply because one is black. Stupidity knows no race. Stupidity knows no sex. Stupidity is equal opportunity, just as Donald Trump's insults are equal opportunity.
All Don Lemon did was prove Trump's initial point: Don Lemon really is a stupid ass. He's just too stupid to realize it.
