Gladys Knight Won’t Apologize for Loving Her Country

RUSH: Don Lemon… I just found this out yesterday. Don Lemon interviewed Gladys Knight. Did you all watch Gladys Knight’s rendition of the national anthem before the Super Bowl? One of the best ever. I mean, no matter how you slice it.

Don Lemon on Friday night asked her if she was sure that she wanted to potentially end her career by doing a respectful performance of the national anthem. I kid you not — on CNN. And she was, in a controlled way, indignant about this question. This woman has three to four times the careers and success that Don Lemon will ever even be able to dream of, and there is no way that however she performs the national anthem could do any damage to the achievements and the success that she has had over the course of her career.

But just that question. And he then proceeded to argue with her when she tried to tell him that, in her own way, he was full of it. Imagine asking Gladys Knight, of Gladys Knight & The Pips, if she was worried about damaging or ruining her career with a respectful performance of the national anthem! Because, you know, Colin Kaepernick might be offended! Anybody doing the national anthem had better not do it respectfully in this day and age! What, and this is supposedly a prime time anchor doing the news on CNN? A full-fledged idiot to boot (sigh) to go along with whatever bias or prejudice he has.

I tell you, the degree of ignorance, lack of knowledge/education, pockmarked throughout our media is stunning.
