CNN talking head Don Lemon insists on carrying water for Obama, even if it means ignoring criminal activity at the highest levels of government.
Lemon slammed President Trump during an inane monologue, where he cavalierly dismissed reports that Obama’s former national security adviser Susan Rice was behind the unmasking of Trump team members.
The news was confirmed by multiple media outlets.
Lemon called the focus on Rice’s potential felony a distraction to divert attention away from the wiretapping claims Trump had made last month, which Lemon insists — without any evidence — are false:
Let us be very clear about this. There is no evidence whatsoever that the Trump team was spied on illegally. There is no evidence that backs up the president’s original claim.
We will not insult your intelligence by pretending otherwise, nor will we aid and abet the people who are trying to misinform you, the American people, by creating a diversion.
Lemon’s sudden fit of journalistic integrity demanding evidence to substantiate claims is laughable considering that CNN airs wall-to-wall coverage of unsubstantiated rumors that the Trump campaign had colluded with Russians to influence the presidential election.
Even anti-Trumpers like leftist Congressman Adam Schiff concede there is no evidence of collusion. In contrast, there is mounting evidence supporting Trump’s claims that he and his campaign staffers were spied on by the Obama administration when they were still private citizens.
Susan Rice famously lied to the world by blaming the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack on a video, so her credibility is already in the toilet, as Twitters users noted.

"I didn't have sexual relations with that woman." -Bill Clinton
"I know nothing about this." -Susan Rice

Meanwhile, Twitter blasted Don Lemon’s absurd editorial, saying he and CNN refuse to report news that doesn’t push their anti-Trump narrative, even if it means ignoring facts and reality.

In other words "we have an agenda and will not let facts distract us from attacking Trump"

They don't even try to hide it anymore. Jake Tapper is still halfway decent but CNN's reputation taints his.
