Did you happen to catch CNN’s recent town hall featuring 2020 Democrat presidential candidate, Senator Cory Booker?
Don’t worry. I’m sure the ratings weren’t exactly through the roof.
Something you did miss, though, was Don Lemon congratulating Booker for doing a “nice job.”
Hmm. Seems like an objective journalist, huh?
From Free Beacon:
Booker wrapped up an answer to a question about his opposition to the Electoral College and called for higher voter turnout, saying it made democracy better.
Booker: “Cynical Republicans are trying to make it harder and harder for people to vote, especially African Americans. The cure for these anti-democratic problems is not to surrender to cynicism about the system. It’s to get up, get involved, get engaged, and let’s change it together.”
Lemon, before breaking for commercial: “I can see that you’re warmed up. You’ve been out on the campaign trail.”
“Nice job. Nice job,” Lemon could be heard telling Booker as the camera panned away, shaking his hand.

CNN’s Chris Cuomo appeared to call out fellow Lemon, a vehement anti-Trump critic. The reason?
Lemon says if he was Barack Obama he wouldn’t have shaken President Trump’s hand at George H.W. Bush’s funeral.
Cuomo: “You’re petty and small.”
Lemon: “I’m not petty and small. That’s real, brother. That’s real.”
Cuomo: “Real petty and small.”
Cuomo: "You’re petty and small."
Lemon: "I’m not petty and small. That’s real, brother. That’s real."

Are pigs flying somewhere?
After hearing that Jussie Smollett was the “victim” of a “hate crime,” both Booker and fellow 2020 candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (CA) rushed to slam the “attack” as a “modern day lynching.”
Of course, the country now knows that Smollett faked the attack and paid two brothers to orchestrate the whole thing.
Now, Harris is at a loss for words when confronted by a reporter asking about Smollett…
.@JussieSmollett is one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know. I’m praying for his quick recovery.
This was an attempted modern day lynching. No one should have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or color of their skin. We must confront this hate.
