A lawsuit filed in Suffolk County, New York, claims that CNN host Don Lemon inflicted "emotional pain and suffering" on a man during a July 2018 incident.

The lawsuit details last summer's incident by alleging that after placing his hands down his own pants and "vigorously rubbing his genitalia," Lemon "intensely pushed his fingers against Plaintiff’s face under Plaintiff’s nose, forcing Plaintiff’s head to thrust backward." He allegedly further harassed the man, Dustin Hice, with aggressive sexual questions.

A statement issued by CNN denies the claims and says Hice had a history of antagonizing CNN and its employees on social media. "The plaintiff in this lawsuit has previously displayed a pattern of contempt for CNN on his social media accounts,” a representative for CNN said to Mediaite. “This claim follows his unsuccessful threats and demands for an exorbitant amount of money from Don Lemon. Don categorically denies these claims and this matter does not merit any further comment at this time."

New York law firm Nesenoff & Miltenberg, who is representing Hice, claims their client suffered "feelings of shame, humiliation, anxiety, anger, and guilt." They are seeking unspecified damages from Lemon.

When the cameras are turned off … Mr. Lemon’s actions are in stark and disturbing contrast to the public persona he attempts to portray.

The story comes a day after CNN host Chris Cuomo used threatening language against a Trump supporter who called him "Fredo" at a New York bar. Cuomo, who was with his family, became angry and suggested to the man, "I'll f--king ruin your shit" further threatening the man that he would "f--king throw you down these stairs like a f--king punk."

Did it smell like lemons?

One thing I will say though is that now we can do a little Pinky and the Brain thing with Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo.



They're Fredo and the Rapist.
They're Fredo and the Rapist.
One is a stooge, the other's a racist.
They're talking heads on TV.
Their faux seriousness is silly.
They're neat-o, they're Fredo, and the rap-rap-rap-rap-ist.
Before each night is done,
Their slanders will be unfurled
By the dawning of the sun,
The media will manipulate the world
They're Fredo and the Rapist.
They're Fredo and the Rapist.
Their smug personality
Will soon be their fatality
They always spout fake news
To watchers that are boobs
They're neat-o, They're Fredo, and the rap-rap-rap-rap-rap-rap-rap-rap-ist.

A serious question: What would be the downside to dismantling all sexual harassment laws? Not assault, just the harassment crap.

Likely downsides:
A boss won't get punished for making passes at you. Then again, you could always take it up internally with upper management.
A creep can get really fucking annoying after the first 30 seconds of not taking "no" for an answer.

Likely upsides:
People might learn some responsibility and social interaction other than the good stuff. You need conflict or you become a shitty person.
People might actually have incentive to fuck again when there's no danger of getting fined for asking someone out on a date despite your average looks.

Seriously, fuck sexual harassment laws. Groping someone is one thing, but
aggressive sexual questions
is something you fucking have to get used to so you don't curl up in a fetal position and choke on your own tongue, you fucking baby.

Turns out the establishment in question is "Murf's Backstreet Tavern."
It looks like a more family man/local guy oriented. If he was there, he was kinda in the wrong place to be doing that sorta shit.
Or being CNN's well-paid homosexual house negro, he probably assumed he could pull an Epstein and flaunt his wealth and do what he wants with the common folk with no consequence. Time's are a changin', though.

Well, you know, sometimes you leave that part unsaid but make sure people have the tools to get there.
You nailed it tho. I think thats the subtext in a lot of these stories.
