CNN anchor Don Lemon seemed to have a difficult time interviewing Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, a frequent critic of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Lemon started the interview off by saying the police in Baton Rouge had a message of peace and asking Clarke for his sentiment.
“Their message is peace and coming together in the country,” Lemon said. “What’s your message?”
Clarke sniffed at his question.
“You don’t believe that for one minute, do you,” he said. “Any protests over the deaths of these cops today in Baton Rouge? Any riots or protests over the deaths of the police officers in Dallas, Texas?”
Clarke then blamed the Black Lives Matter movement for the recent spate of cop killings in Dallas and Louisiana, growing agitated until Lemon had to ask him to “keep it civil.”
Clarke continued to rail about the movement until Lemon cut him off to take a commercial break, saying, “Are you gonna let me talk?”
When they returned, Clarke said, “First of all, this whole anti-police rhetoric is based on a lie. There is no data and no research that proves any of that nonsense. None.”
Lemon then told him to be specific about what he was talking about. Clarke then said everyone from President Barack Obama to the Washington Post were lying about data that shows black people are statistically treated more harshly by law enforcement than white people, which Lemon countered.
Clarke then tried to turn the conversation to “black-on-black crime,” but Lemon pointed out that’s a different conversation and tried to get the interview back on track.

The View’s Whoopi Goldberg and Meghan McCain wallop Trump’s ‘sexist’ outburst at Pelosi: ‘Grow a pair, man!’
"The View" co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Meghan McCain ganged up on President Donald Trump for horrifically botching the military operation in Syria, and then throwing a tantrum when Republicans rebuked him.
Trump has enjoyed nearly slavish devotion from his congressional GOP allies, but House Speaker Nancy Pelsoi said the president had a "meltdown" during a White House meeting after the House voted to condemn his military withdrawal and abandonment of the Kurds.
"His problem right now too is that social media, everyone can see the atrocities that are happening right now in Syria with the Kurds," McCain said. "It's all over social media, and I have been apoplectic for a week and a half now, and everything we said was going to happen is happening. Our allies are being slaughtered."
‘Serious lack of discernment’: Evangelical leaders slammed for promoting book by Trump-loving ‘charlatan’
Paula White, the former pastor of New Destiny Christian Center-turned spiritual adviser to President Trump, has a new book out titled, Something Greater: Finding Triumph Over Trials. While some prominent evangelicals are helping her promote the book, there's a separate contingent of preachers and religious leaders who think White is a charlatan, and they're making their thoughts known.
According to some, White is a proponent of the "Prosperity Gospel," which contends that if one consistently donates to churches and religious causes, they'll be rewarded by God with an abundance of material wealth. The Prosperity Gospel has caused a rift within religious communities, and evangelical leaders who've endorsed White's book are getting some pushback, as The Christian Post points out.
Bromance between ‘frantic’ Lindsey Graham and ‘annoyed’ Donald Trump collapses as the Kurds get slaughtered: CNN
The growing rift between Donald Trump and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was documented on CNN on Thursday morning with contributor Dana Bash explaining that a "frantic" Graham is now at loggerheads with an equally "annoyed" president.
Sharing a montage of clips showing Trump and Graham taking shots at each other over the Syria debacle that has resulted in one of Trump's biggest defenders quickly flipping to being one of his harshest critics, Bash explained, "Listening to that, it's hard to believe that Graham is one of Trump's most loyal allies."
With Graham on record stating, "It's not about me and him, it's about the country," Bash begged to differ.
