Don Lemon, who has long been one of CNN’s favorite liberal mouthpieces, is apparently finding out what it’s like when the left begin to eat their own.
Despite Mr. Don’s dogmatic, anti-MAGA stance, he apparently is subjected to condescending commentary from ultra-woke individuals who really have far more rage than sense.
Unfortunately, rage seems to prevail in the present state of the union, which is vastly more detrimental than beneficial on average.
And rage was surely present in a recent edition of “CNN This Morning,” where hosts Poppy Harlow and Kaitlan Collins railed against Don Lemon for daring to point out basic realities regarding not only basic differences in strength between male and female athletes, but also rather basic economic logic.
The type of logic that tends to evade leftists the most, who apparently expect the government to bankroll them for merely breathing from the cradle onwards.
Don Lemon, obviously anticipating resistance from his “colleagues,” began his commentary on why men are paid more than women in professional soccer by insisting he isn’t sexist.
“Everyone’s going to hate me … I’m not sexist. The men’s team makes more money, [so] the men should get more money. The men’s team makes more money because more people are interested in [men’s soccer],” Lemon began.
Didn’t take long until one of his “colleagues” promptly jumped in, and, rather hilariously, began to blame Big Tech of all entities for why men are paid more than women.
“Hold on. Hold on! Until big media companies, Big Tech companies, advertisers, invest and put them on their airwaves more and allow people to see it more and gain more fans. Then you will push towards more equality. But if they are blocked in so many ways and not invested in as much, they don’t even have a chance!” Harlow raged.
Uh, sure. Great logic.
Most of these female players, like Ms. Rapinoe, “block” themselves with their absurd political commentary, focusing more on hating Trump than playing soccer.
However, it is downright laughable that Harlow blames Big Tech of all entities for not being fair when most of the companies very clearly demonstrate brazen bias against conservatives.
Lemon continued to argue that while women should be paid more in general, it is not true that they possess the exact same skills as men.
Though, unfortunately, he was unable to complete his thought before he was rather rudely interrupted.
“I grew up the only boy in a family of all women, I understand what you’re saying. But not everybody, honestly, has the same skill. Not everybody has the same interest in the sport. I think the women should be paid more, I do. But if the men …,” Lemon attempted.
Collins decided to jump in and bully Lemon, raging that women are “better.”
“You’re right that not everyone has the same skills because the women are better skilled,” Collins declared.
“Better skilled,” huh? What happened to that “equality” just mentioned by Harlow?
Moreover, what definition of “women” is Collins referring to? If she’s accounting for militant transgenders, then sure, perhaps some of the same “skills” are present … because they are inherently male.
However, it’s pretty clear Collins is referring to women in the traditional sense, as the professional sports teams remain segregated by gender (for now).
Harlow apparently thought her colleague was quite clever, cheekily remarking, “mic drop.”
Lemon then apparently delivered the greatest insult of all, which was daring to suggest that men are simply stronger and more skilled than women in soccer.
“But if the women played the men, they wouldn’t be winning the way that they win,” Lemon suggested.
Harlow apparently just about had a heart attack at Lemon’s depiction of reality.
“Why?? What??!! I’m not going to get into that argument,” she raged.
The viewers appreciate Harlow’s restraint, as it would have been just one word salad after another, with absolutely no nutritional value.
