It’s hard to believe that Glenn would ever want to go hang out with someone from CNN, but Don Lemon may not be so bad. The CNN host recently came out with a strong condemnation of political correctness, and while they may have disagreed in the past, he couldn’t help but agree with Don on this one.
Don Lemon said:
Political correctness has become dangerous. We have to stop looking for reasons to be offended. We have to allow people leeway to make mistakes in conversations without calling them racists, bigots, stupid, dumb, sellout, or whatever the word your word choice might be, on and on. Not everyone is going to or should they have to agree with you. In fact, it's better when people don't agree with you. That's how we learn. That's what conversation is really about. It's not supposed to be an agree fest.
After almost 25 years in the news business, you know who is the most easily offended and the least tolerant? Liberal and progressives.

" I've disagreed with him a lot of times. I've agreed with him a lot of times. And we have pointed this out. He seems to be an honest broker. I would like to see if he would be willing to have a conversation with me. Because he's the kind of guy that you can make -- you can make progress with. And I don't mean progress, we can further our agenda. We might be able to win. I mean, we can heal our nation. Because he's right on that. It's not supposed to be an agree fest," Glenn said.
