Sometimes things just don’t go the way you expect them to go. Don Lemon learned that lesson on Monday evening as he hosted British royal commentator Hilary Fordwich.
Lemon, who recently lost his primetime show and will now host a morning show on CNN, decided to turn the conversation to reparations, asserting that those who lived under colonialism and slavery “want to be paid back.” Fordwich then went where few are willing to go in response regarding the topic.
Lemon immediately ended the segment after Fordwich’s answer. Whether it was because he was legitimately out of time or because CNN didn’t want her viewpoint being broadcast any longer, I can’t say. I suspect it’s the latter given that Lemon has often chimed in with a last word when he disagrees with his guests. Perhaps Fordwich just really left him without a rebuttal?
