Last week, House Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) called out the media for not selling the Democrat spending package better to the American people.
That did not go over very well with the media, including, believe it or not, CNN’s Don Lemon.
The liberal anchor lost his cool this week on-air, calling out Democrats and telling them to “get your butts in gear!”
Some Fact, Some Fiction
Don Lemon is overly dramatic… I think we can all agree on that.
So, take a look at his transition with Chris Cuomo, then we will break it all down…

His point about it not being the media’s job to sell the package is dead on.
I made that the moment those words came out of Pelosi’s mouth.
The rest of his rant, however, was a bunch of nonsense.
This idea that people of color are being prevented from voting is utterly ridiculous.
It is shameful, actually, that he is buying into that narrative that ONLY poor people of color cannot get IDs or are unable to get to a voting booth is racially divisive nonsense.
Do the same problems not exist in poor white areas, or is this simply an excuse to interject race into the discussion for empathy?
The man is an anchor on a national news organization, yet he will tell you his people are oppressed.
I am not even sure he knows the definition of the word.
And this idea that democracy is on the line with this spending bill is, again, just more utter nonsense.
That bill is filed with pet spending projects and very little else.
Democrats have literally redefined infrastructure to justify the spending and to be able to see they passed the largest infrastructure bill this country has ever seen when in reality, only about 15-20 percent of the original bill addressed actual infrastructure.
So, Don, show me proof that people of color are being blocked from voting, actual hard proof, then maybe we will listen.
We all know that proof simply does not exist.
