Don Lemon Smacks Down Conservative Former NFL Player as 'Un-American'
Don Lemon was discussing protests during the national anthem with former NFL player Chris Valletta, who is white, when the CNN host decided he couldn't take Valletta's nonsensical argument any longer.
Valletta tried to claim that players should stand during the anthem because the U.S. affords freedom of speech, despite the fact that kneeling is an exercise of free speech. He then scaremongered about a future in which no one would sing the anthem.
"But how can you as an American citizen who believes in the First Amendment and in the Constitution and everything you say about the anthem, how can you tell another citizen how and when to protest? That’s un-American," Lemon responded.
