CNN anchor Don Lemon told network contributor Matt Lewis to "shut up" late Tuesday during an explosive debate over what constitutes a "mob" in light of Sen.

The back-and-forth came hours after anchor Brooke Baldwin tangled with Lewis and fellow CNN contributor Mary Katherine Ham over whether protesters should be labeled as a mob, with Baldwin telling both she wanted to "move past the ‘M’ word" because it is "part of the weaponization of what’s happening now on the right."
Lewis was invited on Lemon's show, "CNN Tonight" to continue the conversation, where the conservative Daily Beast columnist made the point that the Tea Party "didn't hound people out of restaurants" as was the case with Cruz last month or Homeland Security Kirstjen NielsenKirstjen Michele NielsenTrump lowers refugee goal to 30,000, he must meet it Pence accuses China of anti-Trump campaign Senate passes key cyber bill cementing cybersecurity agency at DHS MORE over the summer.
“The Tea Party did hound people. The Tea Party people hounded me when I went out to cover them!” Lemon shot back. “And do you know what I said? It was their right to do it because they’re Americans!”
“Don, if they started following you around a restaurant and running you out of places...” Lewis replied.
