Don Lemon: "We're Going To Have To Blow Up The Entire System," "Get Rid Of Electoral College"

|

CNN host Don Lemon told CNN colleague Chris Cuomo that "we're going to have to blow up the entire system" in reaction to President Donald Trump's decision to nominate a replacement for Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court. Lemon also called for getting rid of the electoral college and for Biden to "stack the courts" if he becomes president in a chitchat segment Monday night with Cuomo.

"We're going to have to blow up the entire system. And you know what we're going to have to do?" Lemon asked.

"You're going to have to get rid of the electoral college because the minority in this country decides who the judges are and they decide who the president is," Lemon said. "If Joe Biden wins, Democrats can stack the courts and they can do that amendment and get it passed."


CHRIS CUOMO, CNN: Until you have a group of people that decide to consistently be better than what they reject, you're going to have people in the exact position they are now, Don, which is no matter what happens, everybody sticks to their time.

DON LEMON, CNN: We're going to have to blow up the entire system. And you know what we're going to have to do?

CUOMO: I don't know about that.

LEMON: Yes. What are we going to have to do? Honestly, from what your closing argument is, you're going to have to get rid of the electoral college because the people --

CUOMO: I don't see it.

LEMON: The minority in this country decides who the judges are and they decide who the president is. Is that fair?

CUOMO: You need a constitutional amendment to do that.

LEMON: If Joe Biden wins, Democrats can stack the courts and they can do that amendment and get it passed.
