CNN anchor Don Lemon is still parading himself around as an unbiased news journalist even when it is apparent that he is not.
He has not been since President Donald Trump was elected in November of 2016 as he has had nightly rants against the president.
And now former Fox News host, and no fan of the president, Megyn Kelly has shredded him and CNN for it.
On Monday night Lemon channeled the character Howard Beale in the movie “Network” who said the famous line “I’m mad as hell and I’m not gonna take it anymore.”
“For the last couple of weeks, when I have walked into this building and I get in front of this camera, I swear I feel like I’m in the movie ‘Network,’” he said. “I feel like Howard Beale.”
The host insisted that he was not the only one. He said that America is furious with the president because, apparently, he has not seen the president’s poll numbers.
“Americans are mad as hell,” the host said. “How much more can Americans take?”
He highlighted more of President Trump’s briefing before saying again “Americans, are you mad as hell? How much more are you going to take?”
But Kelly cannot take anymore of Lemon and she made that known on Tuesday after his how.
“CNN still pretends he is an objective news anchor (yeah, sure) while the msm recoils in horror at the bias of Fox/OANN, etc. Who do they think they’re kidding?” he said.

The issue Kelly faces is that supporters and detractors of the president both appear to dislike her, as evidenced on Twitter.
All these Megyn Kelly simps are just getting in line for her to stab them in the back next

Megyn Kelly tweets like she knows her career is over forever and her bottom-feeder pandering would be delicious in its desperation if it weren’t so sad.

But some agreed with her.

Not necessarily a Megyn fan, but Lemon is not even close to an anchor. He’s a pundit at best…that nobody watches.

I am not an American but in my country, we don't have fox news but only CNN, Aljazeera, BBC et al. I didn't like Trump initially but watching CNN coverage of him has made me to like. As a result I go online for Fox news. CNN is disgrace to journalism.

Megyn Kelly is 100% correct, Don Lemon is not an impartial news anchor. Not a chance.
The fact that CNN can actually think he is and then criticize Fox News for being biased is beyond ridiculous.
