CNN’s Don Lemon: ‘We’re Going To Have To Blow Up the Entire System’ and Abolish the Electoral College

What's Happening

When your ideas are so far to the left that even Chris Cuomo thinks they’re extreme, you might have gone too far.

That’s what occurred throughout a CNN sector on Monday night. Don Lemon recommended that Democrats should “blow up the whole system” if a Trump Supreme Court candidate is confirmed by the Senate before the November election– a recommendation that stunned even the extremely liberal Cuomo.

” We’re going to need to explode the whole system,” Lemon informed his CNN associate.

” I don’t understand about that,” Cuomo responded.

Lemon went on to assault the Electoral College.

” And you know what we’re going to have to do … Honestly, from what your closing argument is, you’re gon na have to get rid of the Electoral College. Due to the fact that the people–“

” I do not see it,” Cuomo inserted.

” Due to the fact that the minority in this country decides who the judges are and they decide who the president is. Is that reasonable?” Lemon asked.

” Well you require a constitutional amendment to do that,” Cuomo said.

” And if Democrats, if Joe Biden wins, Democrats can stack the courts, and they can do that modification and they can get it passed,” Lemon argued.

” Well you need two-thirds enact the Congress and three-quarters of the state legislatures,” Cuomo stated, plainly incredulous at Lemon’s extreme assertion.

” They might be able to do that,” Lemon stated.

” Perhaps,” Cuomo yielded, still obviously incredulous.

Lemon recommended stacking the courts and changing the Constitution with an infuriating tone of moral supremacy. It appears extraordinary that even someone as far left as Lemon really believes not just that Joe Biden will be chosen president but also that he will have sufficient congressional and state support to change the Constitution.

As Cuomo mentioned, it takes a two-thirds vote in both the Senate and your home of Representatives (or a constitutional convention) and ratification by three-quarters of the states to enact a change. That’s a very high bar, especially when the 2 major political parties are so ideologically divided.

The left is having a huge collective meltdown over Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death and the Supreme Court seat left vacant in her wake. They seem to honestly think that Republicans, by holding a hearing on a Supreme Court nominee in a governmental election year, are complete hypocrites who are rewording the Constitution by their actions.

Yes, McConnell declined to allow Obama Supreme Court candidate Merrick Garland a hearing in 2016. The scenarios were considerably different: First, Obama was term-limited and not up for re-election; second, the Senate and the presidency were held by various celebrations.

If McConnell is a hypocrite for allegedly altering his viewpoint, so are the Democrats. Democrats from Obama to Biden, from Nancy Pelosi to Ginsberg herself, said in 2016 that a president’s Supreme Court candidate ought to get a Senate hearing even in an election year.

Now, numerous on the left are threatening more rioting and violence, stacking the Supreme Court with additional justices, and even including states to declare more senators if a Trump pick is validated in advance of November’s election.

Admittedly, it’s difficult to take their remarks seriously, as the left was threatening all of that even prior to Ginsburg’s death.

Lemon’s comments expose precisely what the left wants: to tear down the systems that have served this nation for over 200 years in order to create a government that will allow them to ram through an extreme anti-American program.

And all in response to the president and Senate just doing their jobs.

It’s clear that the left has actually totally deserted the Constitution, along with any pretense of belief in the suitables on which America was founded.

Lemon’s comments are so outrageous that even Chris Cuomo can’t support them. Much of the left (or at least the loudest leftist voices) agree that the country needs to be razed if the leftist program isn’t embraced wholesale.

” Blowing up the system,” consisting of eliminating the Electoral College, isn’t a fringe idea. It’s ended up being a mainstream talking point of the modern left.

That’s extremely concerning, to state the least.
