Don Lemon gets a lot of deserved criticism around these parts for being a clueless dunce, but his interview tonight on CNN with alleged Bill Cosby rape victim Joan Tarshis took the clownshow to a new level when he asked her why she didn't bite the disgraced comedian's dick off.
It's bad enough to place blame on an alleged rape victim by asking why she didn't fight back; it's another entirely to get into the details of forced oral sex combat on national television. Don Lemon sucks, and he shouldn't have his job. The full transcript, unedited from closed captioning:
>> can i ask you this? and please, i don't mean to be crude, okay?
>> you said this last night, that he — you lied to him and said i have an infection, and if you rape me, or if you do — if you have intercourse with me, then you will probably get it and give it to your wife.
>> you said he made you perform oral sex.
>> you — you know, there are ways not to perform oral sex if you didn't want to do it.
>> i was kind of stoned at the time, and quite honestly, that didn't even enter my mind. now i wish it would have.
>> right. meaning the using of the teeth, right?
>> i didn't even think of it.
>> yes. i had to ask.
>> yes. no, it didn't cross my mind.
