CNN anchor Don Lemon flirted with a nervous breakdown on air when he described President Trump’s efforts to impose law and order in America as “teetering on a dictatorship.”

Out-of-control riots over the death of George Floyd at the hands of rogue police officers have spread to numerous cities throughout the country, leading to crimes ranging from vandalism and looting to arson and violent assaults.

Trending: Kamala Harris is not eligible to serve as president. She is not a “natural born” citizen. Neither of her parents were American. Who cares, right?

The President, during a Rose Garden address, announced that if governors and local governments won’t restore order, he will.

“If a city or state refuses to take the actions that are necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will quickly deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them,” he declared.

Lemon’s Lunacy

Lemon decided that Trump’s comments were evidence that he had become, or at least was becoming, a dictator.

“For this very moment that just happened right before our eyes, why were we pretending otherwise? Open your eyes, America. Open your eyes. We are teetering on a dictatorship,” he claimed without evidence.

“This is chaos,” Lemon continued. “Has the president — I’m listening, is the president declaring war on Americans? What is happening here?”

“He is saying that he wants to protect peaceful protesters at the same time sending law enforcement and military into the streets to push peaceful protesters back, to be aggressive with peaceful protesters,” added the ill-informed anchor. “He is doing the exact opposite of what he said in that speech.”

Lemon’s issue here is a fundamental inability to discern between peaceful protesters and those who are currently burning down cities. He believes they are one and the same.
