Don Lemon Discusses The Chicago Torture Video - Refuses To Call It ‘Evil’

Perhaps CNN’s Don Lemon is still feeling the effects of all that tequila he consumed while on the air on New Year’s Eve. If he’s not, he’s certainly got some explaining to do about a ridiculous opinion he shared with viewers that’s pretty outlandish even by the low bar he has already set for himself.

Lemon was interviewing guest Mark Lewis, and the pair was discussing the disturbing Facebook Live video that saw four teens assaulting a special needs teen while spewing hateful remarks, such as “f*** white people” and “f*** Trump.”

“But at the end of the day, you just try to wrap your head around evil. That’s what this is, it’s evil. It’s brutality. It’s man’s inhumanity to man,” Lewis said.

“I don’t think it’s evil. I don’t think it’s evil. I think these are young people and I think they have bad home training. I say, who is raising these young people?” Lemon replied.

Ok then. For starters, the teens repulsive actions against the poor, traumatized teen are evil - as well as revolting, disturbing and downright nauseating. Second, it’s a little unfair to pin the blame on the teen’s parents without having a full picture of their home lives.

Can poor upbringing lead teens astray? The answer is an unequivocal 100% yes, but to present that as the end-all and be-all reason for this hateful act is pretty lazy thinking on Lemon’s part.
