CNN anchor Don Lemon, who has become known in recent years for his constant attacks towards Trump supporters, is now urging his viewers to see the “humanity” in others and refrain from “demonizing” those who are different.

Following the shootings that took place at three Atlanta-area massage parlors, which the mainstream media has framed as a hate crime against Asian-Americans despite the ongoing investigation, Lemon attempted to chant for harmony during the primetime handoff with his CNN colleague Chris Cuomo.

“We’ve been dealing with these topics of race and bigotry and unconscious bias a lot lately and we need to do something about it,” Lemon said.

“You know what I’ll do about it? All of the hate- all of it directed to minorities, directed at others, do you know what it makes me do? Makes me love you more, D-Lemon,” Cuomo told his colleague.

“I love you, brother. I love you,” Lemon responded. “More relationships like this so that we treat people as humans, we see the humanity in each other and not as some other and demonizing other people.”

Lemon, however, hasn’t always expressed “Kumbaya” rhetoric, especially towards Trump supporters.
