Don Lemon Hits A New Low In Interview With Black Pastor Who Met With Trump
Recently, CNN host Don Lemon took his Trump Derangement Syndrome to a new low during an interview with a pastor after he met with the President.
Rev. Bill Owens, who is the founder of the Coalition of African American Pastors (CAAP) met with President Trump to try and help the people in the inner-cities.
Lemon tried to elicit some negative words about the President from the pastor:
According to the Daily Wire,
Lemon went after Mr. Owens for attending a meeting with President Donald Trump on Monday, in which the two discussed issues concerning poverty-stricken areas. The CNN host insinuated that the pastor should not be taken seriously and effectively accused him of being a sellout to his race by providing a shield for Trump’s supposed “racism.”

Don Lemon: “So the president tweeted today he was looking forward to his meeting with wonderful inner-city pastors. Any concern for you that the president used this meeting with black leaders to insulate himself from the criticism?”
Rev. Owens: “I don’t think so. I don’t think that at all because I have been to the White House four times in five months. So it was nothing about insulating him from anything. He wanted to hear from us, what our concerns were and what he could do to help us.”
After admitting he disagreed with former President Obama on the topic of same-sex marriage and accusing the pastor of tieing Obama’s support of gay marriage to child molestation, Lemon then questions the integrity of the pastor himself.
Lemon: “That, in itself, was an outrageous statement. Why should anyone take you seriously?”
The pastor shot back: “I never said that. I have never said that. I had a difference with Obama about same-sex marriage, I have never mentioned a child about President Obama — never, never, never.”
Lemon: “So I know it’s hard for you, you think it’s hard to believe that Trump is racist. But he’s repeatedly used racially-charged language. He consistently attacks black and brown elected leaders. So, why is that hard to believe, pastor?”
Rev. Owens: “I find President Trump a leader of all colors. He attacks whom he will. He’s his own man. And I can’t dictate what he should or shouldn’t do. But he does not just attack black people. He attacks anybody, and you know it.”
Lemon then targeted Owens’ standing as a Christian. “So, as a man of faith, as a Christian, you’re saying he attacks anyone. It sounds like you’re condoning attacks? Is that Christianly or godly?”
What an imbecile! No, that’s not at all what the Reverend was saying and he knows it. This is just a typical liberal tactic to try and make someone with an opposing view look bad. Anytime you state a fact about something, that by default means you support or condone it…at least in the eyes of a liberal like Lemon.
