Immediately following President Donald Trump’s Rose Garden address to the nation, as military police continued to fire tear gas and rubber bullets at peaceful protesters, CNN host Don Lemon delivered a stark message to viewers about what they were watching.
“This was a made for television moment,” Lemon said. “Open your eyes, America. Open your eyes. We are teetering on a dictatorship. This is chaos.”
“Is the president declaring war on Americans?” he asked. “What is happening here? He’s saying he wants to protect peaceful protesters at the same time sending law enforcement and military into the streets to push peaceful protesters back, to be aggressive with peaceful protesters. He is doing the exact opposite of what he said in that speech.”
