WATCH: CNN’s Don Lemon Ends Show Early Over “Fake News” Mantra

And he was right to do it, actually.

Don Lemon – by no means a nonpartisan, to be clear – ended his show early on Friday night, after a pro-Trump panelist refused to stick to the topic at hand.

Paris Dennard, a political analyst and commentator, rather than address a legitimate point about security at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort and the cost of keeping the Trump family safe on those trips, began twitching and vomiting out, “Fake news! Fake news!” all over the discussion.

Lemon interrupted to shut down Dennard’s use of the term “fake news.”

“Fake news is when you put out a story to intentionally deceive someone and you know that it is wrong.”

“This story that we’re doing right now is not to intentionally deceive anyone. We are simply talking about the cost to keep a President safe,” he continued. “Please stop it with that stupid talking point, that it is a fake news story. If you don’t want to participate in the news stories on this network, then don’t come on and participate. But don’t call them fake because you don’t agree with them. Go on.”

And like him or not, he’s right.

An example would be the story that Ted Cruz’s father was involved with Lee Harvey Oswald, or just about anything that comes from Breitbart or Gateway Pundit.

Dennard responded again, “this is a fake news story,” after which Lemon ended the segment altogether.

“Okay, Paris, thank you very much everyone,” Lemon said. “Thanks everyone, thanks for watching. Have a great weekend. Goodnight, all.”

As someone who has fought the battle of wits against the unarmed Branch Trumpidians, I share in Lemon’s frustrations.

Are we to feel sorry for these people, lost in their cult world?

Do we label them as enemies to the republic, as well as good grammar and basic commonsense?

As Lemon demonstrated, sometimes you just cut off their mic and walk away.

The “fake news” narrative has to go.

Biased media, maybe, but to continue with the “fake news” mantra reveals a “fake patriotism,” and a “fake” grasp on self-awareness.

That is the opinion of Susan Wright of Red State. She should change her name to Susan Wrong.

I know most of you already saw the clip of Don Lemon abruptly cutting off a panelist and ending his show on the last thread. What you didn’t see in the earlier clip was that the panel discussion came after a 10-minute “news” segment about the cost of protecting the First Family. Then two panelists opined that Trump was hypocritical and a third questioned whether we could protect them cheaper.

Then Paris Dennard, who had sat there politely without saying a word all this time, said that he thought this story was fake news. When he tried to explain himself Don Lemon interrupted. When Dennard tried a second time to explain himself Lemon cut him off and ended the show.

Paris Dennard was right. The story is fake news.

“Fake news” encompasses far more than “when you put out a story to intentionally deceive someone and you know that it is wrong.” Fake news includes omissions, half-truths, distortions, and distractions. The story in question here is all of the latter three.

CNN is the Very Fake News Network.

      His drunken NYs Eve tells you everything you need to know about that clown. In vino veritas. Self absorbed bordering on implosion. One day he might collapse inward and take a plane with him.

    Holy shit! Miss Melania just came out swinging! lmao

    • lyn says:

      I missed that! My connection is crappy.

    • DeniseVB says:

      The Lord’s Prayer ! Was she going for the full lib’heads’asploding ? Melania rocks!

      • lyn says:

        Better stream!

      • AFVet says:

        Thanks for posting that. I watched it on RSBN and it was horrible.
        They were using a cell tower for gods sake, lousy video, lousy sound, cutting out completely.
        They said too many people were using their cell phones,…WELL DUH !
        You should have seen the comment thread !

        • mothy67 says:

          They are new and earnest. No money. OANN audio sucks at tmes in studio and hosts clothes often clash with vivid background. They are hitting ground running. Who knew this was coming?

          • AFVet says:

            I realize they are just getting started but they should know their limitations by now.
            I wouldn’t have relied on a cell phone tower for a feed.
            They apologized for the mess and thanked people for sticking around.
            The one guy said that he would have left long ago.

          • mothy67 says:

            Any other time after an election they might as upstart been given time to adjust. There has been no down time. Its hour after hour.
            I see what you mean, but tip my hat to them for trying — kind of American. Remember early Breitbart? Not what it is now.

    • Constance says:

      And once again Melania looks absolutely stunning because she is wearing her clothes they are not wearing her. She has style she is not a fashion whore. Notice she doesn’t wear awful print clothing it’s always solid color with an interesting cut. Also no weird colors, some colors just hit the eye wrong and should not be worn. Love the accent emphasizing she is an immigrant and also the Lords Prayer. Who can object to that except some commie.

  2. taw46 says:

    Oh my, beautiful Melania with our President. And she spoke, and she called out those who say hateful things about her. She is wonderful.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Nicely said. And that would be nice indeed. Hard to imagine the progs keeping that shit up and winning again. But they do have both parties and the media on their side.

    • Somebody says:

      Just saw that about Milo, not sure howhat the CPAC crowd is going to handle Milo…….think it might be must see TV

    • votermom says:

      so you’re not going this year?

    • Venus says:

      Don’t worry — CPAC will cancel Milo after all the #NeverTrumps finish lodging all their protests to him. I mean, have you seen the rest of the speakers? ALL #NeverTrump. I give it 2 days top before they make the announcement.
      You will be glad you didn’t spend the money.

      • kanaughty says:

        you are so right. I am reading this a little late, on sunday night, and the attacks against a 5 minute clip have already started from the right and the left. it’s timed to be a hit job. they put a hit on milo. but he has already come out to explain himself in a lengthy statement. also, they probably don’t like seeing his book sales so high. someone is definitely trying to control the situation here and basically assassinate milo’s character asap.

        • Venus says:

          Oh on Twitter the NeverTrumps are out in full force screaming how this “perv” has a book deal with Simon & Schuster.
          Like I said — latent homophobia among the “true conservatives” ( which Trump tamped down because he doesn’t give a shit whether people.are gay or not –just whether they are competent, like most of us “normals” do) is out in full force.
          And, btw, that is what I’m calling us who are not the idiot left nor the idiot right — “normals.”

    • Somebody says:

      Fuck right off bitch. He’s doing a rally to go around the media and get his message and agenda out to the people.

      • jenlyntx says:

        Think about what Nutzi actually said people. Have a FUCKING US President go and FUCKING talk directly to the PEOPLE is not democracy but having him talk to PAID reporters who then talk to us is democracy. DUMB IS GETTING DUMBER PEEEPS.

  4. taw46 says:

  5. mothy67 says:

    Missed Melania because of RSBN poor feed. Most grateful if anyone can post.

  6. DeniseVB says:

    I need a cig after this Trump rally, how many more do I need to smoke for the non-smokers 😛

    • Constance says:

      All you have to do is make people make a special trip to register to vote 2 weeks before the election and also show real ID. That rules out non functional people who can’t plan and non citizens.

    Wish I could tweet as succinctly as you people. 140 characters not my forte.
    Saw a few about token/props blacks for Trump. So he knows what’s behind him but hillary knew nothing of Pulse murder’s dad behind her?

    There’s a difference between our new FLOTUS and the old FLOTUS. Trying to put my finger on it.

  13. Watching BBT – Penny is wearing sweatpants with “Juicy” across her bodacious booty.

  14. Ho Lee Phuc!

  15. Venus says:

    Ha ha! Asshole “elites” in MSM made up the #FakeNews moniker to attack Trump supporters. It backfired as we turned it against them.
    Don Suber wrote a few weeks back — both sides have “fake news.” The difference is, on the right it comes from bloggers; on the left, it comes from NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, NYT & WaPo. LOL
    He’s right.

    • mothy67 says:

      When Trump chose the title for Art of the Deal did the fools think he had not read Art of War. He has studied his enemy for decades. They have done nothing but relied on ridicule. He stamped his name on the most powerful city in the world. Notice Oprah is silent.

  17. mothy67 says:

    I was waiting for an open thread to relay/ask about this– brat is in 5th grade as are her friends. We were walking home last night and they were talking about the boys kissing each other. Four boys. 5th grade. What kind of message is society sending when 11 year old same sex kissing in school is okay.
    I am gay. Am I homophobic? I hope all boys are gay she knows until after college. Just seemed so wierd.
