CNN’s Don Lemon discussed the confrontational bait shop video where a man confronted Tucker Carlson. Lemon spoke with political commentators with Ana Navarro and Scott Jennings, and surprisingly defended Tucker Carlson and scolded the man who posted the video to his Instagram account.
The video shows a man walking up to Tucker Carlson and saying some not very nice things to the Fox News host.
The video seems like the man did this on purpose just to post it on social media so he could gain some likes or clout. The confrontation seems like he would not have said anything to Tucker Carlson if there wasn’t someone purposely recording the video ahead of time.
Don Lemon defends Tucker Carlson, which is somewhat surprising, but people like Don Lemon need to remember that these confrontations can happen to anyone in the media, and they could go terribly wrong at any moment.
Don Lemon said the following, as reported on NY Post:
“Let me tell you this: I don’t like it. I don’t like it when people do that because I would not want it to happen to me,” Lemon began after showing a snippet of the video, going on to caution, “I have mixed emotions because Tucker has done this to people before. Tucker said some really nasty and silly things about me, and the next day there’s paparazzi in front of my house, hiding, taking pictures.”
Lemon continued: “We’re all on TV, we’ve been approached. We hear good things, we hear bad things from people. We don’t even know who they are, it’s part of the gig. Don’t you think this went a little too far, though?”
Ana Navarro, who is literally worse than Tucker Carlson in every way possible, defends the man who confronted Tucker Carlson and Don Lemon actually put her in her place!
But CNN commentator Ana Navarro then defended the man who accosted Carlson, identified as Dan Bailey, saying she had been through similar experiences and that the Fox personality should be understanding given his sometimes heated rhetoric.
“Deal with it,” she suggested, noting these individuals’ First Amendment right to approach them.
How about people stop purposely recording themselves confronting others JUST so they can post it on social media? If social media wasn’t a thing, that man would not have wasted time making sure someone was recording and invading Tucker Carlson’s personal space – which is the point Don Lemon hammers home.
In the confrontational video, a man calls Tucker Carlson the “worst human being known to man.”
Except, there’s definitely a lot of people who are worse human beings than that. We can probably name a handful of Democrat politicians and criminals who have done much worse things than speak their opinions on a TV show.
Here’s the video of Tucker Carlson being confronted in the bait shop, so you can see what happened and how it really wasn’t that bad, but it was still inappropriate and likely a shady setup just so the man can post it on Instagram.
