CNN host Don Lemon on Wednesday called on Americans to shame “stupid” unvaccinated people, saying they should be left behind, claiming they are “harmful to the greater good.”
“I think we have to stop coddling people when it comes to … the vaccines, saying ‘Oh you can’t shame them. You can’t call them stupid.’ … Yes, they are,” Lemon said, venting his irritation.
“The people who aided and abetted Trump are stupid because they believed his big lie,” Lemon alleged.
“The people who are not getting vaccines, who are believing the lies on the internet instead of science, it’s time to start shaming them or leave them behind. And because they’re keeping the majority of Americans behind,” the CNN host said.

Earlier this month, Lemon also erupted on unvaccinated people who were going to hospitals and taking up resources that apparently should be meant for vaccinated people.
