After Mocking Violence In Cities, CNN’s Lemon Admits Bad For Democrats: Biden Maybe ‘Afraid’ To Say Anything

By Ryan Saavedra for The Daily Wire

CNN’s Don Lemon decried the violent riots that have plagued America’s streets in recent months as he admitted on Tuesday night that it was a serious electoral issue for the Democrat Party.

The segment came after CNN’s Chris Cuomo and Lemon mockedconservatives a few weeks back for calling out the rise in violent crime in inner cities.

“I do think that what you said was happening in Kenosha is a rorschach test for the entire country, and I think this is a blind spot for Democrats,” Lemon said. “I think Democrats are ignoring this problem or hoping that it will go away, and it’s not going to go away.”

“So unless someone comes up with a solution over the next 73 days or 70 so, however many days — 68 days — so the problem is not going to be fixed by then, but what they can do — and I think maybe Joe Biden may be afraid to do it, I’m not sure, maybe he won’t, maybe he is,” Lemon continued. “He’s got to address it. He’s got to come out and talk about it. He’s got to do a speech like Barack Obama did about race.”

“He’s got to come out and tell people that he’s going to deal with the issue of police reform in this country and that’s what’s happening now is happening under Donald Trump’s watch, on Donald Trump’s watch,” Lemon continued. “And when he is the president, Kamala Harris is the vice president, then they will take care of this problem.”

“But guess what? The rioting has to stop,” Lemon concluded. “Chris, as you know and I know, it’s showing up in the polling. It’s showing up in focus groups. It is the only thing — it is the only thing right now that is sticking. And the Democrats tonight stuck with that, right? And they also stuck with the theme that you said: The coronavirus. You’ve got coronavirus, and you have Kenosha.”

According to NewsBusters, earlier in the summer, Cuomo and Lemon mockedconservatives who were calling out the violence in inner cities:

LEMON: “Democratic cities are in chaos right now. Is this what you want from Joe Biden? And they’re gonna take your country away. And they’re taking down the statues.”

CUOMO: “Crime is rising!”

LEMON: “Crime is rising!”

CUOMO: “Defund police.”

LEMON: “Oh my gosh! It’s so bad and they get defunding the police.” And it’s like — [ROLLS EYES] And the people who you saw there for the most part — not — not them specifically. I’m talking about as a whole. Fall for it. They fall for it and that’s why they do things like what they did. They want to paint over signs and think “it’s our country.”
