‘What You’re Saying Now Is Alternative Fact!’: CNN’s Don Lemon Clashes With Matt Lewis
CNN’s Don Lemon went off tonight after commentator Matt Lewis suggested that maybe the media is hyperventilating too much about the news today out of the House Intelligence Committee hearing.
Lewis argued that there’s a danger that the press is hyping too much how bad today was for Trump when we’re living in a whole new political world now.
Lemon shot back, “It sounds like you’re making excuses for misinformation, you’re making excuses for lies, you’re making excuses for the evidence that’s all there in place.”

Lemon insisted that there’s no hyperventilating going on, and Lewis responded by pointing to cable news coverage in the past few hours. Lemon said people are mostly “incredulous.”
Lewis asked, “How many bad days did Donald Trump have before he won election?” This set Lemon off too, telling him, “What you’re saying now is alternative fact, Matt!”
