Donald Trump is the great illusionist. He’s waving his right hand in the air to get attention, while picking pockets with his left. The President just attempted that with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). The media turned it’s attention to Trump’s repeal of DACA, and no longer reported on the Russia investigation.
Trump’s killing two birds with one stone with his recent decision about DACA, he not only shifts American’s attention, he attempts to destroy the amazing things Obama accomplished while he was in the White House.
CNN host Don Lemon has made no secret of the fact that he is not a Trump fan. Keeping his personal feelings aside, he frequently has Trump supporters on his show to discuss current issues. Lemon welcomed conservative talk show host John Fredericks to the show to discuss DACA.
Things quickly turned hostile when Fredericks barked, “everything always has to be about race” on Lemon’s show.
Lemon calmly explained, “We cover a lot on this show, but these issues happen to effect people of color. Everything doesn’t have to be about race, but the question is, why can’t it be about race? What is the big issue if it is about race? What’s wrong with that?”
Fredericks replied, “Because there are millions and millions of people trying to figure out how to get through the weekend, they’re taking their children to soccer–”
Lemon cut him off: “So are the 800,000 people affected by DACA.”
Fredericks continued, “There are a lot of people trying to figure this out and what this whole case is.” Lemon asked, “So are those people more important–”
Fredericks cut in, “Let me finish.”
Then, Lemon let him have it: “I know people think I cut you off, but the reason I do that is because when you give a statement that is not a fact on this show, I have to stop it. I have to nip it in the bud because then people will believe you’re telling the truth.”
