CNN cut ties with longtime anchor Don Lemon on Monday, and according to a report from The New York Times, a testy debate with Republican presidential hopeful Vivek Ramaswamy might have been what pushed the network over the edge.
The Times reported on Monday that the contentious segment — during which Lemon accused Ramaswamy of “race-splaining” and informed the GOP candidate that he was not equipped to discuss Civil Rights because he was not black — had left several in leadership at CNN “exasperated.”
The debate began with comments Ramaswamy made at the recent National Rifle Association (NRA) convention, in which he detailed the beginnings of gun control in the United States as a means used by Democrats to prevent black Americans from exercising constitutional rights once the Civil War was over.
