Don Lemon Can't Handle This Conservative Guest's Aversion to Facts
CNN's Don Lemon finally had enough of conservative radio host Ben Ferguson, so he shut him down hard.
For some reason, Ferguson refused to accept that Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price cost taxpayers more than $1 million for private jet travels.
“I also think the million-dollar estimate is ridiculous,” Ferguson said.
Price did not contest these trips happened, apologized and even agreed to pay a fraction of it back for his "seat."
Lemon tried to relay the fact that the number wasn't a matter of debate, as Price had been using these private jets for eight months. Ferguson wasn't interest, so Lemon was done.
“Is there nothing—because we challenged you on something—is there nothing you will not make an excuse for? [...] Listen, it’s dozens of flights, two internationally. Some of them on military jets," an exasperated Lemon said. "He’s admitted it, and is telling you how much he’s going to pay back.
Unfortunately, the segment continued, and Ferguson began whining about how many people his fellow panelists wanted "fired" in the Trump administration for this sort of behavior.
Lemon had the perfect response: "If you’re doing the wrong thing, you should probably get fired."
