As stated in "The Daily Wire," Don Lemon rejects the rhetoric:
The comments, which initially did not make a big showing on social media, were made by Lemon on CNN Monday night during a conversation that He led Chris Cuomo on filming in the Pittsburgh Synagogue and the recent murder of two black men in Kentucky.
"There is no travel ban for them," Lemon said during the delivery between the shows. "There is no ban – you had the Muslim ban. There is no "White Guy Ban". What are we doing against it?

His comments did not look good on many notable white men, including Donald Trump Jr., who called Lemon an "idiot" in this Tweet Wednesday morning:

Almost two full days later, the game is still building up with some support here and there :
I wonder if you agree @brithume that @donlemon is a very nice guy and competent professional who is sometimes swept along and says a really stupid thing, but The really stupid things should not define the professional, unless it's a function and not an error (and an error with Don) https://t.co/TtMVwAP5WC[19459007-HughHewitt(@hughhewitt) October 31, 2018
