Don Lemon, blamed the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis on President Trump. On top of that, he and Chris Cuomo asserted that people on the right would be all-in for gun control if it were African Americans protesting like those demanding Michigan reopen.

How many more excuses do you need to make before you examine yourself and say, okay, maybe I need to wake up a little bit and take a good long look at what I've been doing. Maybe I need to understand or realize that the environment that this President has trafficked in can help to lead to these sorts of situations, where people think that that sort of behavior, meaning the people who are doing these things, the people who are calling the cops on people falsely in Central Park.

Lemon is so dumb, he doesn’t know he is dump.

I can’t believe this guy still has a job. It’s a very good thing that CNN has extremely low standards and it’s concerned with being factual. If Lemon was in the real world, he would likely be fired before lunch on his first day.

Lemmon is going to be shocked at how President Trump with God will make lemonade out of this egregious situation.

Minneapolis is a RAT city run by RATS and occupied by RATS. RATS in the US are not interested in justice. They are interested in power. They use their power to suppress freedom. They attack innocents in order to keep their power and to spread fear. “Look what will happen to you if you don’t do what I want ...” President Trump is well versed in the lengths to which RATS in power will go.

I know these people like the back of my hand. I knew they were creating another crisis to blame Trump for. They will not give this man a moment of peace. They trashed him for playing golf and brought up the “100,000” deaths thing, as if a number with a lot of zeros actually meant something. You know, the “grim milestone” meme that they all are chanting.

We have GOT to defeat them this November!

Are Orientals or Asian Indians getting kneed in the back of the neck by cops? Blacks need to stop evading reality and realize that if they would start acting white and stop committing so many crimes, then so many bad things would stop happening to them

What happened to George Floyd was an egregious example of thunderingly-inappropriate use of force.

Here is the pyramid of blame/responsibility:

1. The officers that did the beating. They actually did it.
2. The police department head. They are responsible for the environment that lead to the officers believing this was acceptable behavior.
3. The Mayor. He selected the head.
4. The voters of Minneapolis. They elected the mayor.

This isn’t even a state issue, much less a fedgov issue. It is a Minneapolis issue.

Frankly, they both appear mildly retarded. They sound that way as well, yet they are on TV informing Democrats.

How does 100,000 compare to 325 million? Not only that but there will likely be a net increase in population of the United States by the year’s end.

when it comes to raw numbers, most people killed by police officers are whites.

While the coronavirus pandemic has upended television programming and viewing in a litany of ways, one thing has remained the same, which has been the Fox News Channel’s domance as the most-watched network in the cable TV industry.

FNC also continued its beatdown of liberal rivals MSNBC and CNN in total day numbers, primetime ratings, and the coveted advertising viewership of people between 25 years of age and 54 years old.

According to an FNC press release with data coming from Nielsen Media Research, the network “advanced its streak” over the competition “to 20 straight weeks in total day and for 18 weeks in a row in primetime among total viewers.”

During the week of May 18 alone, FNC delivered 1.7 million viewers in total day viewership and just under 3.1 million viewers in primetime. MSNBC came in second with 1.08 million in total day and 1.8 million in primetime. Of course, CNN was significantly behind both.

Speaking of CNN and MSNBC, ratings for their respective 9:00 p.m. Eastern shows Cuomo Prime Time and The Rachel Maddow Show went in the wrong direction (for them, at least) (click “expand”):

Meanwhile on the competing networks, CNN’s highest-rated telecast, Cuomo Prime Time at 9PM/ET, ranked 19th in total viewers. Notably, the program also marked its lowest-rated week to date during COVID-19 coverage, down a staggering 49 percent in the younger demographic and down 52 percent with A18-49, and decreasing every week in the key 25-54 demo since the week of March 30th. The show also delivered under 490,000 for the fourth consecutive week and was even outpaced by MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show in the demo for the first time since the week of March 2nd. MSNBC’s top-rated program The Rachel Maddow Show at 9PM/ET, ranked number five in total viewers, coming behind four consecutive FNC programs.

As you probably expect, Hannity continued to easily surpass Maddow, marking 63 straight weeks in first place.

Tucker Carlson Tonight continued to hold serve in the 8 p.m. Eastern hour and was second in total viewers for FNC, trouncing CNN’s deeply partisan Anderson Cooper 360 with 4,043,000 total viewers and 658,000 in 25-54 demo.

CNN has put a lot of emphasis on the weekly, Thursday night installments of Coronavirus: Facts and Fears: A CNN Global Town Hall, but like most things the Jeffrey Zucker-led network does, the American public showed little interest. In the case of their May 21st episode, FNC shows (Tucker Carlson Tonight and Hannity) “nearly tripled” CNN “with 3.8 million viewers and 627,000 with A25-54 compared to CNN’s 1.3 million and 320,000 in the demo.”

So on the same day that a far-left group’s lawsuit looking to destroy FNC was laughed out of court, the Fox-hating media also saw some putrid ratings news. Perhaps they should worry about reporting the news and regaining trust instead of peddling fear and partisanship.
