CNN’s Don Lemon Explodes On John Kasich: ‘No, You Can’t’ Talk

Leftist CNN opinion host Don Lemon exploded on former Ohio Governor John Kasich during an interview on Wednesday night after Kasich said that President Donald Trump did a good job with his Oval Office address on the coronavirus earlier in the night.
Early on in the interview, while speaking about the address, Lemon repeatedly cut off Kasich while Kasich was trying to explain his thought’s on Trump’s speech.
“Can I finish now?” Kasich pressed. “Let me talk. Let me talk.”
“No, you can’t, John, because we are here to talk about the president’s –” Lemon responded.
“I can’t talk?” Kasich pressed.
Lemon, who has repeatedly claimed that he is not partisan or a liberal Democrat, responded, “Wait, we are here – I don’t want you to go on and deflect and talk about something else because we are here to talk about the president’s address. And you said that someone else wrote it. He’s the president. Even if someone else wrote it, it should be right.”
After some cross-talk, the exchange continued.
“I think his address tonight, I think it was fine,” Kasich said. “I think it was fine. That’s what I think.”
“You think the wrong – you think inaccurate information that you have to come back and clarify two or three times, you think that’s fine?” Lemon pressed.
“Look, I thought he did fine. That’s what I thought. I thought he had the right tone. And he no longer played around with we’re going to blame Democrats or we’re – forget this stuff. He – I hope he’s trying to move forward because he understands the seriousness of this situation,” Kasich responded. “Now, the fact that they clarify, it isn’t unusual in a speech for somebody to clarify something. Okay? But I don’t think that the tone he showed tonight takes away from some clarification. I think he set a serious tone. That’s what I wanted out of him for a long time. And I think we got it.”
“I can be serious and sit here and tell you four plus four equals 85. I am serious. That doesn’t mean that I’m right,” Lemon said. “The information he gave was not right. You have to come back and clarify several times, information that you gave. Listen, I tried to cut him a break at the top of the show.”
“You mean, like, who’s going to get back into the country?” Kasich responded. “You mean – what is it [in] the clarification that you thought was so terrible? Tell me what you thought about, that you took away from the seriousness of the speech.”
“I didn’t say I thought it was terrible. I’m telling you that we are in the middle of a pandemic right now. We’re in the middle of a pandemic,” Lemon responded. “And every time this president comes out, he gives inaccurate information. So, I don’t understand why he would even come out and do it at all if he is going to confuse the American people even more. You don’t understand that? You’re a governor. I’m surprised that you don’t understand that. If you’re not going to help – if you’re not going to be accurate, why do it?”
