Don Lemon Slams Ron Johnson for Comments on Riots: Shows ‘the Lengths that People Will Go to to Protect White Supremacy’

‘The hoops that people will jump through for, first of all, their political ideology, second of all their way of life, and to continue white supremacy, that’s what that is’

CNN’s Don Lemon went after Senator Ron Johnson (R- WI) Tuesday for his new comments about the violent storming of the Capitol on January 6th.

In a radio interview Monday, Johnson remarked, “This didn’t seem like an armed insurrection to me. When you hear of armed, don’t you think of firearms?… If that was a planned armed insurrection, you really have a bunch of idiots.”

Brianna Keilar played the clip of Johnson’s “bizarre” take and called out the senator before asking about Johnson “defending this as not a big deal.”
