Trump this week demanded his supporters boycott companies and organizations — including Coca-Cola and Major League Baseball — for opposing Georgia’s new voting restrictions.
Though he frequently echoes the right-wing cry against “cancel culture,” Trump is actually one of its biggest proponents, Lemon pointed out. The “CNN Tonight” anchor then filled the screen with the logos of companies that Trump has called for people to boycott over the years.
“The hypocrisy and the doublespeak and the shiny objects and the lying continues,” said Lemon. “Know your facts, people. It’s not cancel culture. Corporations are saying, ‘This doesn’t line up with our values.’ And now the former party of family values now has a problem with values. Interesting.”
