During a recent CNN segment, Don Lemon lost it over President Trump’s feelings on NFL players kneeling during the anthem. He told Americans who respect our anthem that they don’t understand what patriotism really is. He then tried to explain it to them.
“This isn’t about some fake patriotism, about standing or some pageantry. Real patriotism is understanding what the Constitution means for all Americans and abiding by the Constitution, not doing some false presentation that you pretend to be a patriot while other people are around you going to the concession stands, getting beer, or fights in the stands or talking to each other with their baseball caps on,” claimed Lemon.
“That is not real patriotism. Real patriotism is understanding that all of us are created equal and we have the choice to stand, kneel or sit, or even attend a football game if we choose to,” said Lemon.
Lemon went on to insult Sarah Huckabee Sanders for her ideas on what makes Americans patriotic.
“What makes this country great is that we have the choice to stand or not to stand during the national anthem. This is not a dictatorship. We don’t have to do anything in this country,” said Lemon.
