CNN is doing nothing as anchor Don Lemon continues to stand by his previous remarks that white men are the “biggest terror threat” in the United States.
The original comments were made while Lemon was discussing recent events like the pipe bombs sent to prominent Democrats or the massacre at a Pittsburgh synagogue.
However without any backlash from executives, Lemon isn’t backing down from his statements saying, “I made some comments about that in a conversation with Chris [Cuomo]. I said that the biggest terror threat in this country comes from radicals on the far right, primarily white men. That angered some people. But let’s put emotion aside and look at the cold hard facts. The evidence is overwhelming.”
Despite these comments and a call for travel bans on white men, CNN has made no response to stop or acknowledge the issue.
The Associated Press reported that not only has CNN not commented on Lemon’s remarks, they have no intentions of doing so in the future.
