Making talking head Don Lemon look like a gibbering buffoon is a little like making Kate Upton look breathtakingly attractive. Both endeavors require virtually no preparation, planning or significant effort. During this priceless clip in which CNN’s prattling presenter attempts to rally support for more Second Amendment limits, Don Ferguson – who is apparently not related to the troubled Missouri town – attempts to explain the difference between an automatic and semi-automatic firearms to the not-so-pithy Lemon. Exactly what any of this has to do with the Ferguson (the city, not the guy) protests and riots is anyone’s guess, since the only gun involved in the Michael Brown shooting was Officer Darren Wilson’s pistol. Still, it’s a wonderful illustration of the fact that knowledge of your topic du jour is not a prerequisite for getting a high-paying gig as host of your own tragedy TV show. When CNN hired Don, they got a real Lemon.
