    CNN anchor Don Lemon appeared to buck new company president Chris Licht's more fair-minded approach, saying on Thursday that if journalists were truly doing their jobs, they needed to treat Republicans as though they are dangerous to society as a whole.

    Lemon made an appearance on CNN's "New Day" to discuss the state of politics with just a few months left before November's midterm elections, and he argued that it was not reasonable to treat Republicans and Democrats as simply two opposing sides with differing ideas of how to best make life better for the American people.

    "We sit around and we talk about these things and we want to give this false equivalence to Democrats and Republicans. That is not where we are right now," Lemon explained. "Republicans are doing something that is very dangerous to our society and we have to acknowledge that. We have to acknowledge that as Americans, we must acknowledge that as journalists, because if we don't, we're not doing our jobs. We cannot sit here and pretend like 'Well, Republicans, cut them a break ...' They have a lot to answer for in this moment."

    Among the things Lemon wanted Republicans to "answer for" were the Capitol Riot on January 6 and a series of laws restricting abortion that followed immediately after the Supreme Court handed down its 6-3 decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization - which overturned landmark abortion cases Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey.

    "If they come on CNN, they must answer for that. If they come on MSNBC, they must answer for that. If they go on ABC, they must answer for that. They cannot expect to be coddled when they go onto a news organization or when they step up in front of a crowd of supporters or voters or of Americans," Lemon insisted.

    "You have the inmates running the asylum, basically. You have the extremists, because I know there are Republicans sitting out there going, 'No, Don Lemon, that's not what we are.' It's maybe not what you are, but it's what your Party's become. It is what you have allowed to happen," Lemon concluded.

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan yet to be revealed to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
