Trenton Garmon, a lawyer representing Roy Moore, called Don Lemon “Don easy peasy lemon squeezy,” during a segment on “CNN Tonight With Don Lemon” while discussing his client.
Garmon appeared on the show to discuss the recent allegations of sexual misconduct against Roy Moore, among other topics.
Lemon asked Garmon, “Why would Leigh Corfman and the other accusers make up a story like this?”
“Yeah, man, it is great to be on here, Don. I appreciate it,” Garmon responded. “I hope to give you the name ‘Don easy peasy Lemon squeezy’ right–you’ll take it easy on me.”
Apparently unfazed by the new nickname, Lemon lets Garmon talk about the issue.
Later in the segment, Garmon, who represents a Montgomery-based legacy advocacy group headed by Moore’s wife, the Foundation for Moral Law, uses the nickname again.
Lemon says, “What I said specifically at the top of the show was that the statute of limitations has run out, so there will be no judge and jury, there will be no process. The process is that a woman has come forward on the record…”
“Okay. I hear you,” responds Garmon. “But hey, Don Lemon squeezy keep it easy–”
Lemon then cuts him off, apparently irritated by the name.
“It’s just Lemon. Hold on, my mom didn’t name me Don Lemon keep it easy squeezy, just it’s just Don Lemon,” he confirms.
Lemon’s sense of humor must be as good as his journalistic integrity.
