Don Lemon: GOP Hypocrisy Is ‘Off The Charts’

Don Lemon on Wednesday dedicated a seven-minute segment of his CNN show to explaining why Republican hypocrisy is “off the charts.”

The “CNN Tonight” host pointed out how GOP lawmakers are now urging civility and bipartisanship, and how they’ve also called out Neera Tanden, President Joe Biden’s pick to lead the White House Office of Management and Budget, for past “mean tweets” attacking both sides of the aisle, for which she has since apologized.

What grated Lemon was that Republicans are singing this new tone after spending years tolerating, and often embracing, the uncivil discourse and Twitter wars incited by ex-President Donald Trump.

“You guys are just beyond,” Lemon said.

There was “no place” for name-calling, unsavory tweets and bullying, the CNN anchor clarified. “But this is what I’m talking about — the hypocrisy in all of this is off the charts.”
