Don Lemon Reduced to a Weeping Mess During Anti-Trump Diatribe

Apparently, Don Lemon is taking drastic measures to try to get viewers as he continues to get destroyed in the ratings. These include growing out his hair and weeping on air.
From Mediaite
Just hours after CNN self-importantly and sanctimoniously claimed they’d be the network of “Facts First” one of the 3rd place news outlet’s anchors took to the air and read a letter he’d written to President Donald Trump and Gold Star Widow Myeshia Johnson. He then broke down in tears overcome by the emotional power of his own words.
Facts first. An apple is an apple and will never be a banana.
Lemon’s letter/monologue began with FACTS designed to puff himself and his broadcast up a bit, “I interviewed you multiple times. You’ve introduced me to your family.”   The preamble also offered FACTS that served the purpose to paint Lemon as a victim of Trump’s unwarranted abuse, “You’ve also criticized me publicly, both in front of cameras and on Twitter, calling me ‘hateful’, ‘dumb’, a ‘lightweight.’”
FACTS… make no doubt about it.  These are all FACTS and Lemon presented those FACTS first.  But then, several seconds later, Lemon ventured into the realm of speculation and opinion as the entire premise of his monologue:
I feel compelled to do that after this latest controversy with the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson. Your tweet this morning essentially called her a liar.
“Your tweet this morning essentially called her a liar.” Essentially.  Well CNN, did Trump call Mrs. Johnson a liar or didn’t he?  Why equivocate? You are dealing in the world of FACTS here, not interpretation, right? Essentially is a weasel word. Essentially is an extrapolation. Essentially is a way to make something true that may or may not be true. Essentiallyis a point of view. Essentially is not, a FACT.
Essentially, is a banana.
