WATCH: Glenn Beck, Don Lemon Bond over Being Targets of the Politically Correct

lemon beckCNN’s Don Lemon appeared on Glenn Beck‘s radio show earlier this week, so Beck returned the favor by appearing with Lemon on CNN tonight, and they bonded over being targets of online political correctness.

Beck complimented Lemon for not being an “ideologue” and they discussed the Confederate flag before getting around to the n-word.

Beck said he’s uncomfortable with the word, while lamenting how the PC culture has started to “ban ideas.” “Political correctness,” he said, “is keeping me from talking to you and you from talking to me because some of your viewers won’t like it.”

Lemon brought up how he’s been getting crap online because he had on a guest who said President Obama should apologize on behalf of the U.S. for slavery, while Beck bemoaned how a Miami Herald columnist distorted his commentary on Charleston.
