Stephen Colbert Some harsh words to say about her without a lemonwearing a uniform CNN this morning. He took over the host of the late night show Late Show to voice his complaints about Lemon’s fitness, which he did not think was appropriate for the news programme.
Although Colbert said Lemon was a “dear, dear friend” and that he enjoyed watching him on CTM, Strangers with candy The alum said he was “surprised” by Lemon as he wore a jacket over a gray hooded shirt and pants.
Colbert added, “I think a great man once said, ‘What the hell is that?'” “I know they want to add some comedy to CNN and it’s funny, but how do you report the news in that outfit? How do you actually talk about wearing this tragically because what could be more tragic than that look he had this morning? ”
Colbert continued mocking Lemon’s outfit by saying he looked like “a high school track teacher who went jogging and then got a little hungry and stopped at a restaurant but was so cute in a restaurant and they said, ‘Sir, you should be wearing a jacket. ‘” Then he stole a jacket from Trailing Guys and dolls. “
Lemon addressed Colbert’s criticism on the CNN morning show and said he “loved Stephen Colbert” and said he “didn’t expect that reaction” from him.
“First of all, it’s not a sweatshirt, or whatever. It was a jacket with a hood on it,” Lemon explained to co-host Caitlan Collins. “Anyway, I don’t know if I want to get into it because I was really surprised by it.”
Lemon went on to say that he wears a variety of outfits for the morning show and when he took the job they asked him to be “more comfortable”. The television journalist said that “people don’t wear suits as much” and that “a lot has changed since the pandemic”.
He said, “I found it very interesting that there was a reaction like that because I got a lot of negative feedback online.”
Lemmon said he now “understands” female colleagues who are criticized for their clothing.
He added, “If Barack Obama can be criticized for a tan suit, if Volodymyr Zelensky can fight a war in a hoodie, if Trayvon Martin can start a revolution in a hoodie, Don Lemon can tell the news in a hooded jacket.”
Collins asked Lemon if he would ever wear that costume again and he replied, “Of course and I’ll wear it again, I’ll wear a version of that.”
