RUSH: Hey! Hey! Hey! I’m looking for something here, folks. Where is it? Let’s see here. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Grab Don Lemon. Don Lemon is the anchor at CNN who has sex with other men. He’s come out, and he defended these guys at KTLA for that interview with Samuel L. Jackson. Here, grab number 19. This is funny. This guy at KTLA TV talks to Samuel L. Jackson and asks him, “So how’s that Super Bowl commercial working out for you?” and Samuel L. Jackson didn’t do one; Laurence Fishburne did. Samuel L. Jackson said, “What? We don’t all look alike. Who are you?” Here it is…
RUBIN: The Super Bowl commercial. Did you get a lot of reaction to that Super Bowl commercial?
JACKSON: What Super Bowl commercial?
RUBIN: Oh! You know what? I’ve been… My mistake. I —
JACKSON: See? See you’re as crazy as the people on Twitter.
JACKSON: I’m not Laurence Fishburne!
RUBIN: That’s my fault. I know that. That was my fault. My mistake. You know what?
JACKSON: We don’t all look alike. We might be all black and famous, but we all don’t look alike.
REPORTER: You are guilty!
JACKSON: You’re the entertainment reporter?
RUBIN: My mistake. I apologize.
RUSH: All right. So you heard that. Here’s Don Lemon last night on Erin Burnett OutFront at CNN. So they’re talking about this, and Burnett says, “When this happened Samuel L. Jackson handled it so beautifully, right? But a study in the American Psychological Association found quote, ‘people are notoriously awful at recognizing faces from other races.’ My infant at home is getting used to my facial structure. So, he’s getting used to that set of features that we are so used to. So, when someone has a different face structure, we blend them all together.”
So what she’s doing is setting up: Okay, we gotta defend the TV guy. At all costs, we gotta defend this TV guy who thought Samuel L. Jackson looked just like Laurence Fishburne. We gotta defend the guy. So they go and they get Don Lemon, who is an anchor at CNN who has sex with other men. He’s come out, he’s gay, and he weighs in, and here’s what he said…
LEMON: When someone is in our tribe, it’s easier… This is just me talking, okay? When someone is in our tribe, I think it’s particularly easier for us to tell them apart because we’re used to their facial features.
BURNETT: Right. You notice the tiny little differences.
LEMON: The little differences or, you know, the mannerisms or what have you.
LEMON: But when someone’s in a different tribe, sometimes it’s harder. But let’s be honest. I’m probably gonna get in trouble here. People do look alike. There are features that African-Americans have that are similar. There are features that white people have that are similar.
BURNETT: That’s right.
LEMON: There are features that Hispanic people have that are similar.
RUSH: Okay. It’s permissible for them but not for us. Let me tell you something: Laurence Fishburne does not look like Samuel L. Jackson any day of the week. He does not. He does not sound like him, doesn’t look like him. (interruption) Absolutely right. By the way, I probably shouldn’t ask them, but if it’s okay for a man who has sex with other men to be in a shower in an NFL locker room with other men, is it okay for a guy to be in a shower with women? (interruption) Did you hear me or were you in there chatting about the latest carrot cake recipe? (interruption) You didn’t hear me. All right.
