Don Lemon calls Kanye ignorant; triggers Laura Ingraham to teach the ‘wobbly’ CNN goof a lesson

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham came to the defense of Kanye West after what she saw as a “nasty shot” by CNN’s Don Lemon.

“That’s pretty condescending coming from Don Lemon, who himself has had a few wobbly moments,” Ingraham said on “The Angle” Friday, after playing a clip of Lemon’s attack on the rapper.

“Kanye West — he’s entitled to his own opinion — but is not very bright,” Lemon told his panel on CNN Thursday.  “When it comes to these issues, he’s not clued in. He needs to read about it before he speaks about it. I’m not saying he’s not a bright person — I take that back. That’s not what I meant. But when it comes to this particular issue he needs to, like, look at a book.”

Ingraham highlighted Lemon’s “wobbly moments” with a video montage of the CNN host, including footage from his infamous drunken antics on CNN’s New Year’s Eve special in 2016.

“You don’t have to have Don Lemon being drunk to showcase his lunacy. Just watch his program any night!” conservative radio show host Kevin Jackson chimed in. “Look, at the end of the day, when you look at what he said about Kanye West, he’s trying to correct a grown man who dare have an opinion that differs from his.”

Jackson continued to slam Lemon and defend West.

“More black people are waking up because of Kanye West and his comments because they’re tired of tired of being demonized,” he said.

West was blasted by Lemon for comments he made on a recent radio interview saying that President Trump cares about black Americans.

“I feel that he cares about the way black people feel about him,” West said. “And he would like for black people to like him like they did when he was cool like in rap songs. He knows he can’t be the greatest president without the acceptance of the black community.”
