Don Lemon Says He 'Had To Really Get Rid of' a Lot of Friends Who Are Trump Supporters


CNN’s Don Lemon is sharing that he had to “really get rid of” a lot of his friends who were supporters of President Donald Trump.

Lemon said to CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Thursday night, “I have many people who I love in my life…There are a lot of friends I had to really get rid of because they are so non-sensical when it comes to this issue.”

He said those friends he “got rid of” used “every single talking point they heard on state TV” and from the president, “they repeat it and are blinded by it.”

“So here’s the thing, I had to get rid of them because they are too far gone,” Lemon continued. “I try and I try and I try, they’ll say something really stupid and I’ll show them the science and I’ll give them the information and they still repeat those talking points.”

“Sometimes you just have to let them go. I think they have to hit rock bottom like an addict and they have to want to get help. They have to want to know the truth.”

Lemon added that he is not sure he could ever be friends with “those people” again because, as he claimed again, “They’re too far gone.”

“If they’re willing to come back and willing to live in reality, then I will welcome them with open arms,” he then said.

There are four days left until the 2020 presidential election, and Trump claimed at 3 a.m. EST on Friday that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will get elected only if the Supreme Court helps in the “ridiculous win,” as he put it.

“If Sleepy Joe Biden is actually elected President, the 4 Justices (plus1) that helped make such a ridiculous win possible would be relegated to sitting on not only a heavily PACKED COURT, but probably a REVOLVING COURT as well,” the president tweeted. “At least the many new Justices will be Radical Left!”

Biden is leading in national polls, according to RealClearPolitics.
