When CNN Gives You Lemons…

Time for a little honesty–I actually have a certain fondness for Don Lemon. He has an earnestness to him that’s really quite endearing, like an elementary school science geek who keeps an autographed picture of Bill Nye tacked up in his locker.

But he also knows how to party with the big dogs, as he so ably proved during CNN’s live coverage of New Years Eve in New Orleans. With a gusto that could only be fueled by several shots of Pepe Lopez, Lemon answered the age-old piercing question (ear or nipple?) and came clean about how he might be hard to love, right before the producer cut off his mic for the night. He might not have liked how 2016 turned out, but he sure ended it in style.
