CNN isn’t commenting about a remark made by one of its anchors that has angered conservatives. The AP cites a CNN spokeswoman saying today that neither the network nor the anchor, Don Lemon, would be commenting on Lemon’s statement from Monday’s installment of his show.
Lemon, who hosts “CNN Tonight,” ruffled feathers when he said white men represent the biggest terrorist threat in the country.
“He was talking about the negative attention given to a caravan of potential refugees in Central Americam” the AP reports. “Meanwhile, white men are the suspects in recent shootings of two blacks in Kentucky and at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.”
Lemon is quoted saying: “We have to stop demonizing people and realize that the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them.”
