Don Lemon is not a medical doctor, but you wouldn’t know it from his latest pronouncements.
Lemon, who regularly cavils against Trump from his spot as a CNN anchor, has never made a secret of his contempt for the 50% of Americans who voted for Trump. And now, he’s diagnosing them with “mental illness.”
The Washington Examiner reports:
CNN’s Don Lemon accused anyone who believes President Trump did nothing wrong in his dealings with Ukraine of suffering from mental illness.
“I have to say, at this point if you’re continuing to say that there was no, as they say, ‘quid pro quo,’ or the president didn’t ask — whether or not it’s impeachable, that is again not up for me to decide, not up for you to decide.

And they say that Trump supporters are the ones that are “mental?”
