CNN anchor, Don Lemon pulled no punches last night when he stated that 'the biggest terror threat in this country is white men.' 

Speaking to fellow news anchor Chris Cuomo, Lemon discussed the gunning down of two Black men outside a Kroger grocery store in Kentucky by a crazed white, male gunman.

“I keep trying to point out to people not to demonize any one group or any one ethnicity. But we keep thinking that the biggest terror threat is something else – some people who are marching towards the border like it’s imminent.

“[...]the last time they did this, a couple hundred people came and they, most of them didn’t get into the country. Most of them got tuckered out before they made it to the border," he added.

“So we have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them. There is no travel ban on them. There is no ban – you know, they had the Muslim ban. There is no white-guy ban. So what do we do about that?” 

Of course, the Conservatives took offence. One high profile Republican seemed to take Lemon's remarks more to heart than most. Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter to lambast Lemon for his remarks.

"Amazing. I thought this was some sort of joke quote taken out of context but no... it’s just Don Lemon being a moron. Unfortunately this is how so many leftists actually think. Disgusting! Imagine the outrage if you changed “white men” with any other demographic?" he tweeted.

And became even more irate when CNN is refused to comment on Lemon's statement. 

"Why is that? Would they let it slide if someone else made a racist statement like Don Lemon did? Give me a break, no wonder they have fewer viewers than Nick at Night."
