CNN anchors Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo said on Tuesday night that the Black Lives Matter (BLM) affiliated rioters who looted, burned, and destroyed businesses across the United States over the summer, were more justified than the pro-Trump rioters who stormed the US Capitol Building last Wednesday.
“One is built on people, on racial justice, on criminal justice, right, on reform, on police not beating up, or police treating people of color differently than they do whites. Okay? That is not a lie,” Lemon continued, referring to the BLM riots.
“What happened at the Capitol was built on a lie perpetrated by the president and the people who support him. So, just on that one merit, if you want to call it, it’s not comparable. That things are not comparable. So they should not be doing it. And stop this whataboutism,” Lemon said of the pro-Trump riot at the Capitol.
