CNN's Don Lemon told the TRUTH about Bernie

   Don Lemon told Simone Sanders what she did not want to hear last night on his CNN show, talking about Justice Kennedy's retirement
from the Supreme Court.

   Sanders, who was one of the campaign managers for Bernie Sanders, was complaining about the
2nd Supreme Court pick that Trump was going to get to move the court further to the right, most likely eliminating Affirmative Action, Gay Rights and Roe v. Wade.

   Lemon told her, just so you hear what others are saying, the real truth is that YOUR bad-mouthing Hillary Clinton even after she got the Democratic nomination, caused Trump, at least in part, to get into the White House.

   Sanders immediately retorted (and I thought she might cry) that SHE voted for Hillary.  Lemon reminded her that MOST of Bernie's people were persuaded to either waste their vote on Jill Stein or to NOT VOTE. 

  Lemon stated emphatically and truthfully, that the Bernie Sanders campaign gave the election to Trump, so she has NO right to complain about what he does now.

   It was the only confrontation I have ever seen between these two, who are often together on CNN. We agree with Lemon, that Bernie Sanders continual bashing of Hillary after the convention, sank her election prospects.
