Don Lemon is not backing down from his comments calling white men America's "biggest terror threat”. Lemon made the comments during a CNN segment on Monday.
Lemon said, "We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them."
Lemon continued: “There is no travel ban on them. There is no ban on... you know, they had the Muslim ban. There is no ‘white guy ban.’ So what do we do about that?"
Ironically, Lemon, who is openly ghey, dates a Caucasian man, Tim Malone (pictured right).
Lemon's comments touched off a fiery debate on social media.
President Trump's son Donald Trump, Jr. called Lemon a "moron" in a tweet on Wednesday morning.
"Amazing. I thought this was some sort of joke quote taken out of context but no... it’s just Don Lemon being a moron. Unfortunately this is how so many leftists actually think.
Imagine the outrage if you changed “white men” with any other demographic?"
A CNN spokesman said CNN and Lemon would have no further comments on Lemon's incendiary statements.
