CNN’s Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo are all of a sudden very concerned about the rioting and looting taking place in Democrat-run cities across the country. Since Memorial Day, CNN refused to accurately acknowledge any riots and would only refer to the mayhem as “peaceful protests,” as they cheered them on. Not anymore. Now, the CNN duo is begging Joe Biden to use his platform to make them stop. But that backfired big time on Lemon and Cuomo.
Well, the leftwing blackout of the reality of the rioting and looting going on has ended.
All it took was the realization that Americans overwhelmingly did not buy into the ongoing mayhem as “peaceful protests” when the topic showed up in the polls.
Yep, CNN’s Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo were fine with gaslighting Americans about the ongoing violence in Democrat-run cities, as long as they thought it was helping the Democrats get Joe Biden elected.
But then night two of the Republican National Committee’s convention happened, and they could no longer sit back and continue their lies. The polls and “focus groups” gave the Democrats a big wake-up call.
One unofficial report claims C-Span took approximately 18 Democrat calls after Tuesday’s night’s convention, and 16 callers said they were now voting for President Donald Trump.
One example was Helen, a former Democrat from Pennsylvania, calling into CSPAN.
Host: “Helen, who did you vote for in 2016?”
Helen: “I didn’t vote for @realDonaldTrump, but I am now. Most definitely!”
Helen mentioned the ongoing riots in America. “Is that what we really want? I don’t think so,” she said.
Then, there was Barb from Minnesota, another lifelong Democrat.
“Not a mention about us last week [at DNC convention], about saving our communities,” Barb told the C-Span host.
She adds how the rioting is only 7 miles from her home and is scaring her, and she blames her own Democrat representative who joined 200 Black Lives Matter supporters marching into a neighborhood:

The Democrats are blatantly ignoring the reality of the riots.
That caused CNN’s Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo to break their silence on the riots and mayhem. In fact, it panicked them. The couldn’t care less about all the violence or small businesses being burned to the ground. It panicked them because Americans are rejecting Joe Biden and the entire Democratic Party.
“I think Democrats are ignoring this problem or hoping that it will go away, and it’s not going to go away” before the election, Lemon said, adding that the violence and destruction is “a blind spot for Democrats.”
“I think maybe Joe Biden may be afraid to do it. I’m not sure,” he continued. “Maybe he won’t. Maybe he is. He’s got to address it. He’s got to come out and talk about it. He’s got to do a speech like Barack Obama did about race. He’s got to come out and tell people that he is going to deal with the issue of police reform in this country and that what’s happening now is happening under Donald Trump’s watch.”
Lemon said the rioting “has to stop” because “it’s showing up in the polling” and could help Trump bounce back in the polls and carry him to a second term.

Americans blasted the CNN Trump-haters on social media.
“Don Lemon told his viewers to stop violently rioting, not because it is morally and unequivocally wrong, but only because it is helping Trump’s approval numbers. Wow,” tweeted Evan Kilgore.

“Don Lemon has finally had enough of the riots… because it’s hurting Democrats in the polls. That’s your guy libs, your dude praises the violence and the righteousness of burning down America until it effects the polls, not the families/communities/businesses, the f*ckin polls,” tweeted Twitter user “Will.”

“The gall of Don Lemon to say there’s a blind spot for rioting when he’s talking to an a**hole who justified the rioting and his networks been trying to downplay it for months is just staggering even for CNN,” tweeted “KSLawWolf.”

“Let this sink in. The only reason Don Lemon is upset about the looting and rioting is because it’s effecting polling. He doesn’t care about Black people. He doesn’t care about violence. All he cares about is winning,” tweeted “Greg.”

Americans are responding positively to the RNC convention that they see as authentic and heartfelt.
One Democrat caller to C-Span Monday night summed it up best.
“I just want to say that after watching the convention tonight … I am definitely changing my vote to Republican,” said the caller, who identified as a resident of Lorain, Ohio named Rick. “I’m going to file with the Republican Party now.”
“It was the heartfelt way they came across to the American people,” he said. “I was really touched by the number of times they used the word ‘God.’ They put God into everything.”
“The people on the Democratic side, at their convention — acted like they were pushing God right out of it,” he added. “And that had a lot to do with changing my mind.”
Many Americans, including a good majority of Independent voters, rejected the DNC convention. Besides refusing to address the riots, Joe Biden also failed to share any economic plans.
Biden failed to get a bump in the polls from his convention which is something that almost never happens.
The entire Democratic convention was Godless. It was ugly. The sheer panic on the faces of Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo Tuesday night tells us all we need to know. The Democrats decided to back BLM and Antifa, and now it coming back to haunt them in ways we won’t fully appreciate until Election Day.
