Radical CNN host and self-proclaimed “unbiased news reporter” Don Lemon says “it’s time to start shaming” the “stupid” unvaccinated and “leave them behind.”
“It’s time to start shaming them,” Lemon said to his audience on Wednesday night.
Lemon started the segment by commenting how it is “absolutely ridiculous” for Republicans to call for General Mark Milley to resign or be fired after he committed treason by conspiring with the Chinese military.
“Have a seat!” Lemon said to the Republicans criticizing Milley. “You didn’t do the right thing. You’re still trying to elevate yourself through some Big Lie.”
Lemon then suddenly changed the topic and started rambling about COVID-19 vaccinations.
“I think we have to stop coddling people when it comes to this and the vaccine, saying, ‘You can’t shame them. You can’t call them stupid. You can’t call them stupid.’ Yes, they are!” he said.
The CNN host didn’t stop there. He then said that people who don’t get vaccinated are just as “stupid” as those who questioned the 2020 presidential election.
“The people who aided and abetted Trump are stupid because they believed his Big Lie. The people who are not getting vaccines — who are believing the lies on the internet instead of science — it’s time to start shaming them … or leave them behind, because they are keeping the majority of Americans behind,” he said.
He went on to say that the only reason Americans refuse the vaccine “is because of your politics today.” Yet only 43% of black Americans have received at least one dose of the COVId-19 vaccine, while Republicans voters passed that threshold by July. According to exit polls, 90% of black Americans voted for Joe Biden in 2020.
“Stop it. Stop with it the ignorance!” Lemon harangued.
He went on to say that “we have to stop saying, ‘You know, you have to listen to people.’ No, you don’t! These people are being harmful to the greater good.”
People should set aside any lingering concerns about the vaccination, Lemon averred, because “scientists and science aren’t political.”
“I accept everything you’ve just said,” Chris Cuomo responded.
CNN’s @DonLemon: Like Trump voters, we should call unvaxxed Americans “stupid” and “start shaming them”

President Joe Biden had similar comments to say during a recent press conference.
“For the vast majority of you who have gotten vaccinated, I understand your anger at those who haven’t gotten vaccinated,” said President Joe Biden in a national address last Thursday.
“And my message to unvaccinated Americans is this: What more is there to wait for?” he said. “We’ve been patient, but our patience is wearing thin. And your refusal has cost all of us.”
