“Hang your heads in shame,” CNN’s Don Lemon on Friday told the 18 attorneys general and 126 Republican lawmakers who signed on to President Donald Trump’s failed attempt to overturn the 2020 election result.
“Tried to kill our democracy. This will go down on your permanent record,” continued Lemon, responding to the news the U.S. Supreme Court had dismissed wholesale a lawsuit brought by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) that sought to invalidate votes cast in four battleground states where Trump lost to President-elect Joe Biden.
Lemon described the Supreme Court’s rejection of the case as “a slap in the face to this desperate, undemocratic, last-ditch attempt to throw out the votes of millions of Americans,” noting all the ways Trump has lost in the last month — from the popular vote to his slew of multiple legal challenges contesting the result.
