If you haven’t seen this interview between Don Lemon and Rand Paul by now, you will want to prepare yourself by getting your kids out of the room so they don’t hear you cursing your computer screen. It is really that frustrating of an interview – at least it was for me. Don Lemon is nothing short of a condescending prick as he interviews Senator Rand Paul over the debt ceiling. Seriously, you may want to punch your computer before this is over:

    I don’t think I can take it after watching what congress just did to the American people, current and all future Americans.
    Lemon is exhibt A of what the media has been reduced to: “condensending you know whats”.

      When the tea part gets past the Terrible twos will the grow up. Rand Paul was asked to answer a question,,,,,he took a tantrum and did the ‘everybody hates me” gig that lands kids in counselling.

      If we want to be releived of our debt,,,, I have an idea,,,,,, Buy Rand Paul and the tea party for what they’re worth and sell them for what the think they’re worth,,, and we’ll all be better off.

    Rand Paul should have walked out of the “interview”, I wonder if Carney was treated this way by the faux Lemon would he be barred from the daily press room?

      Rand did an excellent job keeping his cool and being articulate, even though he was being talked over after being asked a question, ridiculous.

    The other day, I was on the Daily Show website watching a clip someone had forwarded to me when I saw a link to another video entitled “Don Lemon Appears Not to Care for CNN.” I knew I had heard of the name Don Lemon not too long ago, but didn’t know who he was so I clicked on it and was treated to several snip-its of him being a condescending a-hole about some fluffy stories CNN was reporting on. Of course, Jon Stewart was not calling him out on his behavior. It was more like he was putting him up as a paragon of serious news reporting and that CNN was ridiculous (which of course they are, but that’s a point for another time).

    So, right off the bat, I expected a cocky, condescending interview from him with Rand Paul. As it turns out, he went above and beyond my expectations. There aren’t enough words to describe what a little *%&$! Don Lemon is. I agree with whoever said Congressman Paul (a title Lemon couldn’t even bring himself to acknowledge at the end) should have walked out. He would have been totally justified in doing so. However, I think the fact that he stayed and basically called Lemon out on his interruptions and re-asking of a question he already answered served a better purpose and that was to expose what a *%&$! Don Lemon is. If he ever wants to switch networks, I’m sure MSNBC would be happy to have him.

    Lemon is having a bad ‘GAY’ day. I hope the lib commentators on these networks realize the tea parties are sent to washington for their fiscal responsibility and not to give away the store to the 51% of the population that doesn’t pay income taxes. People who don’t pay the bill shouldn’t have a voice, they are moochers. Talk about representation without taxation.

    I hope that this little toad, who isn’t qualified to tie Rand Paul’s shoelace, enjoys his five-minute career, since he doesn’t have the talent to make it to 15 minutes.

    Maybe people don’t understand this is all crap, there is too many people worried about their Government job, a president who is loving all this because he doesn’t care. They are trying to frustrate our military who by the way should be the 1 group protected in everything, now and in future democrats want to spend money we don’t have and then if it ever comes to not paying have a weaker military that is stupid! This issue was coming up they knew it they are juicing it and i am tired of politics and the crap that comes out of here. This ignorant reporter asks all the questions spends all the time arguing then tells him to go back to work, because “That is what we sent him to do” he didn’t send him to do anything. I am a conservative not a republican and not even a member of the Conservative party just conservative and all I know is that had this been tackled months ago it could have been the way to get all garbage out and have the US Fixed. Nothing like crapping on our troops, and wanting to raise taxes, when the President needs to rethink the amount 250k a year with the inflation rate the way it is sounds to me like the poor will be making that, cause the dollar won’t be worth much

    Scoop, this is the only computer I have- do I really REALLY need to watch this?

    It didn’t bother me too much when I saw it yesterday. I always like to keep the mindset that you can’t be insulted by someone beneath you. Some Jo’ Shmo reporter isn’t going to bug me if I’m Rand Paul. As you can see, he was able to handle himself very well with this somewhat hostile interview, and it was nowhere nearly as bad as LOD going off on Chaffetz or the way Tingles treats Bachmann.

    I’ll watch it again just in case I missed something, but I’ve seen some pretty rough interviews from FNC anchors that we have celebrated and although I don’t care for this nobody, I’m really not too bugged by it. It concerns me more that reporters have constantly used false premises during this debate rather than how smug they can be.

    This isn’t even an interview this is CNN trying to persuade people that its the Reps fault we havnt reached a deal not Obamas. They should’ve picked someone other than Rand Paul :)

    Lemon is a lightweight. Not an original thought or non-talking point among any of his questions. This is why CNN is only on in Airports. Unless a government agent is actively jiggling your Christmas bells CNN is unwatchable.

    This is just a sourpussy way for a lib to beat up on a conservative in front of what 30 viewers? He wanted to have a person-to-person talk and proceeded to whack Paul with all of the latest lib talking points! Time the lemon guy goes back to his cave and hang with the other bats!

    I would have told that jack-ass that the reason people are frustrated, confused and ignorant to the real problems is partly becauase of pseudo-intellectual dipshit’s posing as journalists LIKE YOU, LEMON!!!

  • Anonymous

    The author of the original comments needs to take a fresh breath of air. There wasn’t any beratement, no belittling words. Don Lemon was respectful, even if there was a very slight bit of antagonism between the two; Lemon wanted short staccato answers, Paul wanted to give a broader, in-depth answer.

    I didn’t think it was as bad as you did. Don is a Lemon, after all. If that interview wasn’t a Lemon, I don’t know what one sounds like.

    Don Lemon is a shill for the Zionist banksters; and he is not alone. Nearly all media personalities, the President, the courts, and a majority of the congress, are either “bought and paid for”, or are being blackmailed, to Toe The Line. The last thing the banksters want in the U.S. is a stable, economically sound government.

    This guy Lemon (no relation to Meadowlark Lemon who was a nice guy) is as big a jerk as I’ve ever seen. Tells Rand to get back to work, who does this pos think he is?

  • cheyennecowboy

    Lemon is an a$$ hole supreme. Just exactly part of the reason the clinton news network (cnn) is in the tank. Condescending prick is too good for him, just more of the LSM, lame streme media. They all stream and spew their condescending, arrogant, narcissistic hatred when they can’t win their point based on fact. Lemon is a prime example. Just another member of the “I want something for nothing” crowd.

    Classic act of Media being the dumbest of the dumb. Trying to form a fact out of thier own stupid opinion. This guy should be fired. What an idiot.

  • Josh

    Is it just me, or does it sound like Lemon is a high schooler trying to sound tough so he gets an award. Adults, especially politicians, explain their answers. If you wanted short, to the point answers, you should text him, not interview him.

    Help me understand this,,,, the same party that feels sorry for TanMan and TinMan aka Boehner and McConnell becaue they are in a hard spot and can’t do their job,,,, are upsed because Lemon did his job.

    He asked Randy to answer the question,,, Randy took a hissy fit and answered another question,,,,, and now everybody feels sorry for Randy because “they pick on him”
    When is the Tea Party Patriot Mob going to simply grow up????
