Martin Luther King Jr’s nephew genius talked to a major CNN host about President Donald Trump and it didn’t turn out the way that CNN may have hoped. The host, Don Lemon, a highly criticized anti-Trumper, was talking with Isaac Newton Farris, Jr and the interview went the way of a Conservative rather than going in the direction of a liberal. It could’ve been a well-balanced interview, but once Don Lemon appeared to begin talking about President Donald Trump as a racist, that’s when it went wrong for Lemon. In fact, it became nearly comical and flooded with denial and self-pity after Lemon had to fold and feed into what Farris was happily saying, especially the part where he touted Trump as a genius.
Watching Lemon face defeat under the wrath of Farris, a relative of a great civil rights icon, was a splendid touch of reality for those watching CNN that day. If people missed it, then no worries because it was posted on social media and YouTube.
Watch the video of CNN’s Don Lemon and Martin Luther King Jr’s nephew, Isaac Newton Farris Jr, which includes commentary by Mark Dice:
This website provided the following information on the fiasco between Farris and Lemon: “Now that the “Russian collusion” accusation seems to have failed to bring down President Trump, the media seems to be pivoting right back to their accusation that Trump is a “racist,” especially after a recent meeting where he was accused of referring to some third world countries as “sh**holes.”
After Trump was accused — so far without any corroborating proof — of using the “sh**hole” comment in a closed-door meeting, Lemon had MLK nephew, Isaac Newton Farris, Jr., on the air to talk about MLK’s legacy. Naturally, as an overtly left-wing operative, Lemon also pressed Mr. Ferris on Trump. And when Farris refused to call Trump a racist, Lemon badgered him for the entire segment.
After Lemon brought the president into the conversation, Ferris told the CNNer that he doesn’t think Trump is a racist. “The President, I do not think, is a racist,” Ferris said to Lemon’s astonishment.
The MLK relative added that if Trump did use the word, it was more out of ignorance as opposed to racism.
Almost immediately, the liberal CNN host began to lose his cookies. Lemon quickly jumped to a list of Democrat talking points meant to paint Trump as a “racist.” Lemon’s list included Trump’s campaign claim that some illegals are criminals. Lemon also slammed Trump as a “racist” for calling fake Native American Indian Senator Elizabeth Warren by the name “Pocahontas.”
… Now, before we go on with CNN’s meltdown, it should be noted that Trump was right about the criminals coming here. A new report found that the so-called DREAMERs have crime rates at double that of American-born youngsters. So, yeah, these foreign nations are sending their rapists and criminals here.
Anyway, Lemon went on, according to Mediaite:
“Just because the president is not aware of his racism doesn’t make him not a racist. It makes him ignorant of the fact that he is racist. To be honest, it is tough to sit here and call President of the United States a liar. It is tough to sit here and call the President of the United States a racist, but you have to do that as a journalist. And guess what? You do it because you realize the person who is in that position has less respect for the office than you do, because if he respected the office and if he respected all of America and all of American people then he would listen to the majority of black people and brown people in this country who are trying to educate him and tell him he is exhibiting racist behavior. he’s not listening. he keeps doubling down on it.”
The constant badgering by CNN contributes to the division that splits people apart on major issues. The mainstream media that insists on going after the President for incidents that have no merit, nor are fact-based, provide the viewers with lackadaisical information. CNN could focus on the positive news, accomplishments, and the aspects of Trump’s presidency that have provided the nation with positivity
There have been numerous accomplishments by Trump’s time in the White House and Americans should focus on that while providing constructive criticism to help him do an even greater job. Everything from tax cuts, peace between Korea’s, stock market surges, and more. Trump is doing the best he can with the support that he has – despite all the people going after him and trying to halt his progress.
