Don Lemon slammed POTUS Donald Trump supporters on Monday, January 4 for 'believing bulls**t' during a shock outburst on television. The CNN anchor had been discussing Trump's claims that he did not lose the 2020 election even though President-elect Joe Biden has been declared the winner and is all set to be inaugurated on January 20. While speaking to fellow host Chris Cuomo, Lemon slammed Trump and others who support his election fraud claims. 

He called out Trump for feeding the American public 'bulls**t'. While referring to Trump supporters also encouraging his rhetoric of election fraud, Lemon asked, "Why do they believe that?" He added, "Because you have been telling them that! Of course, they're going to believe it."

"If you would stop telling them that and start telling the truth, then maybe they would believe the truth, that the election was not stolen and it was a clean election, according to everyone who has investigated, most of them Republicans," the host said in a shocking display of intense emotion. 

Trump's legal team has also filed many lawsuits alleging election fraud though none have been proven as there has been no concrete evidence of fraud as of now. Despite this, Republicans have vowed to refuse to accept Biden as the winner when the Congress is meant to do so on January 6.

Lemon continued to slam Trump and his supporters during his outburst and added, "Stop saying that we must respect Trump supporters who believe bulls**t because it is bulls**t that you have been feeding them. The president and you have been feeding them BS, and now that they believe it, all of a sudden, again, another self-fulfilling prophecy and feedback loop."

He also called out Republican lawmakers for suggesting that the election had been stolen from Trump but this 'fraud' has nothing to do with the votes that got them elected, though they were on the same ballots. 

Earlier last month, he had slammed Trump's press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, who he criticized for spreading disinformation and said "Girl, bye." While speaking on 'CNN Tonight', he said that McEnany was acting like "the election didn’t even happen... acting like she’s not about to be out of a job."

"Do you know she also works for ―" he said before cutting off and saying, "Girl, bye." He continued, "So much disinformation coming from the podium... it’s every day... comes out, reads propaganda."

We had earlier reported that Lemon himself was recently slammed across social media after people spotted what looked like a “blackface mammy jar” — a form of the ceramic jar with the design of a Black female's face — resting in the background of a segment he did from his kitchen on New Year's Eve. The jar, which was popular in the Old South, was seen resting on a countertop behind Lemon. After the area of the screen was blown up by one eagle-eyed social media user who circled the object and reposted the screenshot, others took notice and started slamming Lemon over it. 

However, there were some social media users who defended him and said that there was no problem in having the jar.
