CNN anchor Don Lemon recently told an audience that he may no longer be in his current position in 2020 because he’s having problems handling the level of “toxicity” in modern political discourse.
Lemon blamed President Trump and said as a black and gay man he’s a “unicorn” and has been a target.
Per FoxNews, The news – plus barbs from social media trolls and other critics — may be too much for CNN’s Don Lemon to bear much longer.
The host of “CNN Tonight” told an audience in New York City on Thursday that the current “level of toxicity” in society – which he attributed to the Trump presidency – has him questioning whether he’ll still be on the air when the 2020 presidential election rolls around, according to reports.
“I don’t know if it’s worth this level of toxicity,” the 53-year-old Lemon said about continuing in his current position, the Daily Beast reported.
However, many Trump supporters reacted on social media by letting Don Lemon know that the toxicity is a two way street and much of the negativity today is coming from the left against conservatives as well, including from Lemon himself.
Marisa D’Alesandro wrote “You have been totally unfair and disrespectful to our President…..and have no one to blame but, yourself!
Kathy Schiavone wrote “When you lie about everything people finally see who you are.”

“@donlemon Is anyone serving time in prison for plotting to kill you? Have you been physically assaulted for your opinions? If the answers are “yes & yes”, then I say, “Welcome to my world.” But until then I say, “Suck it up Snowflake.”
