Fox News host Tucker Carlson nailed CNN’s Don Lemon for living in a wealthy neighborhood that lacks diversity, calling him a “successful victim.” He also pointed out a “white supremacist QAnon cookie jar” in the self-proclaimed civil rights leader’s kitchen.
Carlson kicked off his segment on Monday’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” by stating that Lemon sees America as a racist country: “Mr. Don Lemon is a cable news host on our competitor over at CNN, and most of the time he talks about cable news host type things: what the Royals are up to, how a commercial airliner might have flown into a black hole, you know, the news. But Don Lemon most importantly is more than that. Don Lemon’s a civil rights leader. Just the other day he spoke to “The Washington Post” about his feelings on civil rights, and he declared, you may not be surprised by this, that America is a racist country.”
Lemon told The Washington Post on June 11: “We’re living in two different realities as Black and White people.” But Carlson wonders about that given the wealth that Lemon enjoys and his residence in a less-than-diverse neighborhood: “Don Lemon lives in a $4.3 million home in Sag Harbor, New York. No, he doesn’t live in Section 8 housing, he lives in one of the whitest towns in America. In fact, 80%, Sag Harbor is just 3% African-American. In the interview, Mr. Lemon said America needs to see more people like him. He regularly lectures America about diversity. When he didn’t tell ‘The Washington Post’ is that in his free time he runs away from diversity. His reality is that he doesn’t like diversity at all. None of them do.”
Carlson quipped: “You’ve heard from the White House and the President himself that white supremacy is a lurking threat and you might not see it but it’s always there like Russian spies, white supremacists come in the dark of night, in the most surprising form, they’re shapeshifters.”

Then, he poked fun at Lemon’s outrage over so-called racism: “Now, we’re not calling it to be a white supremacist here, but you have to ask yourself, and I’m going to put this on the screen now. What is this, this symbol of hate posing as a cookie jar, doing in Don Lemon’s kitchen?”
The blackface cookie jar is a surprising fixture in a pundit’s home that is so prone to decrying alleged racism. The picture of it is allegedly from Lemon’s live broadcast on New Year’s Eve.
Carlson wants answers on the “racist” symbol decorating the counter of Lemon’s kitchen: “Do you see that? That right there, ladies and gentlemen, is a white supremacist, QAnon, cookie jar. Now we are not calling for the Department of Justice to look more deeply into this because that’s not our place, we’re a cable news show not a law enforcement agency. But let’s put it this way if you find yourself with a black face cookie jar in your own kitchen, it’s time to reflect. That means you, Don Lemon.”
Carlson pointing out the cookie jar was done in jest to mock Lemon but it is curious that a man so quick to call others racist would have such an item in his Sag Harbor home. The dig was leveled at CNN’s constant haranguing over QAnon, white supremacy, and contrived domestic terrorism. The humor of the cookie jar seemed to be lost on the mainstream media, unfortunately.
Lemon is the same talking head who asked if America “sees black people as fully human.” And he’s still fixated on former President Trump as well just as his colleagues at The New York Times are: “There’s also this false reality that we’re living in a post-racial world after the election of Barack Obama. That was all bullsh*t,” Lemon stated. “It was a wake-up call to white people who thought we were living in a nonracist world. We’re living in two different realities as black and white people. We knew, as black people, what was lurking beneath the surface. I still believe that [Trump] was the necessary wake-up for America to realize just how racist it is.”
Carlson found widespread agreement with his assessment of Lemon on Twitter:
