We are less than one month removed from Tucker Carlson accusing Don Lemon of having a “white supremacist QAnon cookie jar” in his “$4.3 million home in Sag Harbor, New York,” which Tucker notes is overwhelmingly white in a rant designed to paint the CNN host as diversity-averse.

The next day, Lemon claims, paparazzi were hiding in bushes on his property snapping photos.

Following Tucker’s viral confrontation with a Montana man this weekend, who called the Fox host “the worst person known to mankind” for allegedly peddling coronavirus misinformation, Don Lemon was gifted the perfect opportunity to spike the political football in support of Montana Man.

Instead, Lemon declared: “I do not like it, because I would not want it to happen to me.”

Lemon then pushed back against CNN commentator Ana Navarro’s shallow “Deal With It” stance.

“But I don’t think that should happen to you, Ana. I don’t think that should happen to [CNN star] Chris [Cuomo]. I don’t think it should happen to me,” Lemon replied.

“Your First Amendment right doesn’t mean invading my personal space, I’m sorry, Ana, I understand what you’re saying and I get it. I think that what Tucker says much, much of the time is completely reprehensible and divorced from reality, but he has a right to be in a space and not be accosted and not be ambushed by anyone.”

At the time of this writing, Tucker has yet to respond to the initial confrontation video that has been viewed tens of millions of times.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
