In Lemon’s latest commentary on the Tom Joyner Morning show, he expressed his feelings about the Republican Party and the Million Vet March. He told the participants to stop “drinking the Obama hater-aid.” Lemon called some of the recent behavior embarrassing. He was referring to Tea Party members calling the President Muslim and telling him to “take is hand off the Quran and come out with his hands up.” He went on to say what was also embarrassing was the fact that people showed up at the white house with their confederate flags and vandalizing federal property by ripping up barricades.
Lemon went on to say he believes that the GOP is defending these rambunctious protesters because the Republican Party is in trouble. He stated that If they “don’t wake up soon” that the party is “doomed.” The CNN reporter said that he feels the GOP needs a major makeover. He said the party can’t grow any further because they refuse to transition as a society. He feels the party is only concerned with stopping the president and not with embracing “the winds of change sweeping through our country.” He made the explosive comment that he feels “there will never be another Republican President in our generation or even in our lifetime.”
Don Lemon is known for being upfront and bold about the current issues plaguing America. He expressed that he believes the Republican Party is dominated by older white Americans and extremely loud mouth bιgots. He said these people do not represent the constantly changing demographics of America. He said even intelligent thinking republican party members can see it is not the president’s fault that veterans can’t visit the World War 2 memorials. He ended his discussion with: “Republican Party, wake up before it’s too late.”
