Don Lemon Says Kenosha Riots Are Helping Donald Trump’s Chances Of Getting Re-Elected, Asks Joe Biden To Give An Obama-Like Speech
Riots and protests have broken out in and near Kenosha, Wisconsin following the shooting of a Black man, named Jacob Blake.
As we previously reported, Jacob Blake was shot several times in the back, by police, and he is now paralyzed from the waist down following the shooting.
With the 2020 Presidential only a few months away, CNN host, Don Lemon, is asking for Presidential elect, Joe Biden to step in and help end the riots, as he says the riots are positively affecting Donald Trump’s chances of getting re elected.
“I think Democrats are ignoring this problem or hoping that it will go away, and it’s not going to go away. Unless someone comes up with a solution, over the next 73 days. The problem is not going to be fixed by then.”
Don Lemon then offers a solution for Joe Biden to step in and give an Obama-esque speech that could end the riots,
“But what they can do, and I think maybe Joe Biden might be afraid to do it, I’m not sure, maybe he won’t, maybe he is. He’s gotta address it, he’s gotta come out and talk about it, he’s gotta do a speech like Barack Obama did about race. He’s gotta come out and tell people that he is going to deal with the issue of police reform in this country. And that what’s happening now is happening on Donald Trump’s watch, and when he is the President, Kamala Harris is the Vice President, then they will take care of this problem, but guess what. The Rioting has to stop.”
Adding that the riots are effecting the election,
“Chris as you know and I know, it’s showing up in the polling. It’s showing up in focus groups. It is the only thing right now, that is sticking. And the Democrats tonight, stuck with that, and they also stuck with the theme that you said, Coronavirus, you have coronavirus and you have Kenosha.”
