    Don Lemon will be one of the moderators for CNN's Democrat debate at the end of July.

    CNN Sets Don Lemon, Jake Tapper and Dana Bash As Dem Debate Moderators

    CNN’s Dana Bash, Don Lemon and Jake Tapper will moderate the network’s Democratic presidential primary debates over a two-night stretch July 30-31, the network announced today.​

    Because MSNBC did not jump the shark hard enough when they had Rachel Maddow as one of their Democrat Debate Moderators in June. CNN apparently has no intention of being outdone.

    Do these people have no shame? Is there no lower threshold to how low they are going to cause their standards to fall?

    Don Lemon. Seriously, if they wanted to choose a left leaning partisan hack who was more disreputable than this guy, who could they go to? I am drawing a blank. Someone please help me out here.

    So what did maddow do in the debate that was so bad?

    and since this is a debate with as you say have many left leaning candidates why do you have an issue with Lemon?

    The hard left New York Times forbids its reporters from appearing on Don Lemon's or Rachel Maddow's shows, because these two are regarded by THE NEW YORK TIMES as being too left wing partisan.

    CNN does ‘disservice to voters’ by naming Don Lemon debate moderator, critic says

    CNN announced on Monday that Don Lemon will follow in the footsteps of MSNBC’s far-left opinion host Rachel Maddow as a Democratic presidential primary debate moderator -- and one critic called the decision a "disservice to voters all across the political spectrum.”

    Lemon will join Dana Bash and Jake Tapper for the two-night event on July 30-31 from Detroit. Debate moderators are historically straight-news journalists, as opposed to partisan pundits, but CNN’s decision mirrors NBC’s strategy to allow Maddow to moderate last month’s Democratic Debate.

    The New York Times reportedly forbids its reporters from appearing on both Maddow and Lemon’s programs, because they are considered too partisan even for the Times – which is often criticized for leaning left itself. Conservative strategist Chris Barron told Fox News that CNN’s decision is “a disservice to voters all across the political spectrum” because Lemon is so open about his own views.

    “They are more interested in the political version of a church revival than an actual debate,” Barron said.​

    Like the article says, debate hosts have typically been people who at least some people believe are straight news journalists. Apparently not anymore.

    seems you missed this.

    Both MSNBC and CNN have hired several prominent New York Times reporters as contributors in recent years, but it is unclear from the Vanity Fair report if they would be discouraged from appearing on shows deemed "too partisan."

    Pretty amazing that the Dems start with 20+ candidates where even their worst is far superior to our current mistake-in-chief in every way.

    It's great that Dem voters don't have to compromise their moral beliefs to support a repugnant candidate that is the antithesis of all that is American.

    It's great to be able to vote for a candidate that can be held up as a role model for our nation's children.

    Nah. It is fact that Donald Trump is a complete piece of **** with no redeeming qualities. From discriminating against black renters, to running businesses into the ground, to sexualizing his daughter, to cheating on every single one of his wives, to paying prostitutes to keep quiet, to being an habitual liar.

    At the end of the day he is pretty damn worthless. He will die old and bloated like Henry XIII with no one really caring except the daughter that he wanted to have sex with.

    At least Henry VIII never wanted to screw his own daughter.

    Which is made possible by not having any fixed moral standards.

    Joe Biden's campaign is defying the left's "medicare for all" mantra. Sound like he hired some new consultants who reminded him that he is supposed to be the "moderate" candidate, since he previously seemed to have forgotten this.

    Biden campaign rips 'Medicare for All,' calls on Dems to protect Affordable Care Act

    presidential campaign expanded his critiques against “Medicare for All” and pressed its opponents to fight to protect and expand the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which the former vice president played a crucial role in ushering through Congress.

    Deputy Campaign Manager and Communications Director Kate Bedingfield detailed Republican efforts to overhaul the Obama administration’s signature legislation.​

    Joe doesn't seem to get out much these days. So his campaign staff are out making these presentations for him. In any case, there is another debate next week, and Joe will not be able to send any of his staff to that. So hopefully he is up to speed on this when he is pushed to explain what he means by this and where he differs from his adversaries on this point - if in fact he actually does.

    We agree. You nailed it. You dotard supporters have no choice but to abandon any fixed moral standards you possess to support a creature devoid of morality and ethics.

    I feel your pain.
