Does Don Lemon have a drinking problem?
Three months ago the CNN host was accused of imbibing way too much booze during his New Year’s Eve show. But got even more embarrassing for Lemon Wednesday night, when Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy accused him of drinking a stiff shot liberal Kool Aid.

During the segment with Ruddy, the two argued about Trump administration conversations being leaked to the press — possibly by Obama administration holdovers.
“Don, do you agree when the President’s private conversation with the Mexican President, and the Australian Prime Minister, classified documents were leaked within several hours of those conversations?” Ruddy asked in reference to President Trump’s leaked calls with Australia and Mexican leaders. “Do you agree that that was a violation?”
Lemon came up with a real strew-grasper to explain that one.
“Well what if it’s Mexico or Australia who leaked?” Lemon asked. “You’re assuming that someone with a high-ranking position in the United States leaked that.”
“Some of those calls, those calls are actually, they’re actually memos of those calls,” he continued. “But you’re assuming that someone in the United States did that.”
Ruddy looked amused at Lemon’s suggestion.
“Don, are you drinking Kool-Aid tonight?” he asked the CNN host. “I mean really?”
Lemon seemed to be caught a little off guard by the comment. Perhaps, his memory was jarred remembering last New Year’s Eve.
Regardless, folks on social media thought the Newsmax CEO made the right call.

Lemon threw back shots of tequila and even got his ear pierced during his on-air New Year’s celebration, which former CNN morning anchor Soledad O’Brien called “a very low bar for credibility.”
That credibility bar apparently hasn’t risen very much since.
