WATCH: Herschel Walker calls for CNN to take Don Lemon off air
Former NFL running back Herschel Walker characterized a recent CNN segment about Kanye West’s support of Donald Trump as “despicable” and said he wondered why anchor Don Lemon and commentators Bakari Sellers and Tara Setmayer aren’t taken “off the air.”

And that’s what they want as quickly as possible,” Lemon whined. “I mean that is a very short time for an investigation. Listen, I’m not in law enforcement, but it just seems like it’s a really, really short time.”
