With Chris Cuomo suspended from CNN, attention is now turning to CNN host Don Lemon.
Don Lemon is trending on Twitter.
CNN said in their statement:
“The New York Attorney General’s office released transcripts and exhibits Monday that shed new light on Chris Cuomo’s involvement in his brother’s defense. The documents, which we were not privy to before their public release, raise serious questions. When Chris admitted to us that he had offered advice to his brother’s staff, he broke our rules and we acknowledged that publicly. But we also appreciated the unique position he was in and understood his need to put family first and job second. However, these documents point to a greater level of involvement in his brother’s efforts than we previously knew. As a result, we have suspended Chris indefinitely, pending further evaluation.”
Here are some tweets about Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo’s friend and co-worker.
CNN is pretending to have integrity now?
Where was Don Lemon’s ban when he cut the mic on George Floyd’s grieving brother?
It’s a bit too late for them to act as though journalistic ethics mean anything to them. https://t.co/Gz3tlhiq9c

Doesn’t Don Lemon still have sexual assault allegations against him?
How has he not been given time off from CNN like #ByeByeFredo?

Also, the biggest loser in the Cuomo suspension is @donlemon. He’s so talentless that Cuomo had to stay over and do the A block of his show with him every night. That’s the most important block in TV.
Poor Lemon needed Daddy to hold his hand. Now, he’s alone. pic.twitter.com/eIJl4yrY9U

Chris Cuomo did not discuss today’s revelations on his CNN show tonight, but Don Lemon offered a hearty endorsement of him: “I’m grateful for your friendship and your love. I think you are fantastic. One of the kindest people I know on this planet.”https://t.co/JkVZX9HEj4

Chris Cuomo being suspended is great but Don Lemon and Joy Reid would be even better
