How the tables have turned…
A former bartender from the Hamptons, a tourist spot for the rich, is suing CNN host Don Lemon for sexual assault.
Yes the same Don Lemon who, every night, masquerades as a man of virtue as he degrades President Donald Trump.
The same Don Lemon who was furious at the Access Hollywood audio of President trump is being sued for sexual assault, The New York Post reported.
A former Hamptons bartender is suing Don Lemon — saying the CNN host got gross and assaulted him at a local watering hole.
Dustin Hice says in his Suffolk County Supreme Court suit, which was filed over the weekend, that he was slinging drinks in July 2018 for The Old Stove Pub in Sagaponack when he and his coworkers decided to go out for drinks after work.
They headed to Murf’s Backstreet Tavern in Sag Harbor, where Hice “noticed a familiar face and realized that Mr. Lemon was also at the bar, seemingly enjoying a drink with his friends,” the lawsuit says.
“Being cordial, Plaintiff tried to get Mr. Lemon’s attention and offered to buy Mr. Lemon a drink, a ‘Lemon Drop,’ a vodka cocktail,” the lawsuit said.
“Mr. Lemon denied Plaintiff’s offer and responded that he was ‘just trying to have a good time,’” the lawsuit said.
“Mr. Lemon, who was wearing a pair of shorts, sandals, and a t-shirt, put his hand down the front of his own shorts, and vigorously rubbed his genitalia, removed his hand and shoved his index and middle fingers in Plaintiff’s moustache and under Plaintiff’s nose,” it said.
“Do you like p—y or d–k?” the CNN host is alleged to have said as he shoved his fingers in the man’s face. “with aggression and hostility.”
The suit said Lemon is “an Emmy Award winning news anchor … who among other things, purports to be a staunch advocate for the ‘Me Too’ movement.”
“When the cameras are turned off … Mr. Lemon’s actions are in stark and disturbing contrast to the public persona he attempts to portray,” it said.
The attorney said that his client has suffered “severe emotional stress and loss of future earnings and opportunities.”
But, as with Chris Cuomo, CNN is standing by its Prime Time anchor in the face of tremendous pressure.
“The plaintiff in this lawsuit has previously displayed a pattern of contempt for CNN on his social media accounts.
“This claim follows his unsuccessful threats and demands for an exorbitant amount of money from Don Lemon.
“Don categorically denies these claims and this matter does not merit any further comment at this time,” it said.
