‘Don’t Go To The Hospital When You Get Sick!’: Don Lemon Screams At The Unvaccinated

‘Don’t Go To The Hospital When You Get Sick!’: Don Lemon Screams At The Unvaccinated

By Ben Johnson

CNN host Don Lemon told Americans who have not yet gotten the COVID-19 vaccination that they are “selfish” and should refrain from seeking lifesaving medical treatment if they fall ill.

In a fit of pique, Lemon began shouting as he discussed the issue with fellow CNN talk show host Chris Cuomo at the beginning of Tuesday’s “Don Lemon Tonight.”

The discussion came shortly after Cuomo apologized for running over his allotted time during the hand-off between the two shows at 10 p.m. Eastern. His show closed with the heartrending story of a woman who died of cancer after she could not receive treatment, due to the stress that COVID-19 put on the medical system.

“Listen, here is how I feel about that,” Lemon told Cuomo. “If you’re not going to get vaccinated, you don’t want to social distance, you don’t want to wear a mask, then maybe you don’t want to go to the hospital when you get sick.”

“I know that sounds harsh,” he continued, “but you’re taking up the space for people who are doing things the right way.”

After Cuomo attempted to turn the spotlight back to the couple he highlighted at the end of his show, Lemon began to rant that Americans who are not yet fully vaccinated should not receive medical treatment for the effects of the coronavirus.

The decision not to take the COVID-19 vaccination “is putting a stress and strain on the system and people all over this country, because some people who are so selfish are saying, ‘It’s my freedom, and I don’t want to get vaccinated.’ OK, fine. But think about someone other than yourself.”

And if you don’t believe that COVID is real and that it can affect your health and possibly take your life, don’t go to the hospital then when you get sick! Don’t take up the resources from other people who are playing by the rules, getting vaccinated, social distancing and putting their lives on the line to try to take care of the people who are there. That’s all I’m saying. That’s how I feel. And I don’t apologize.

Chris Cuomo nodded along approvingly before adding, “I love you, D. Lemon.”
