“And this person who calls himself the President of the United States does not have the testicular fortitude to own his part in all of this,” Lemon continued.

“And ‘Im so sick and tired of people coming on television and equating a First Amendment right of protest to a potential act of terrorism. they are not equivalent, and we shouldn’t them get away with it, because it’s not the same thing,” he continued. “Someone delivering a bomb to your place of business that can potentially kill you and your co-workers, that’s a horse of another color and the two should not be equated.”
