Lemon further alleged he’s been called vulgar names during the last four years:

Following Lemon’s remarks on Twitter, Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) offered to “forward your tweet to some of my buddies overseas so they can send you some flowers”.

Donald Trump Jr. reacted, laughing at the CNN host:

Former spokesperson for the National Rifle Association, Dana Loesch also weighed in, informing Don Lemon that he covered “news” as “an advocate, not a journalist”.

She also pointed out how during the Obama/Biden administration, they “subpoenaed AP reporter’s phone records, spied on James Rosen, and tried to frame him using the Espionage Act of 1917”, and included an article from The New York Times.
