found an unlikely ally of sorts in ’s Don Lemon Monday night. On , Lemon came to the defense of Carlson after the host was at an outdoors store in Montana over the weekend. The man who confronted Carlson, Dan Bailey, posted a video to his Instagram in which he tells Carlson, among other things, that he’s “the worst human being known to man.” While Lemon defended Carlson’s right to be in public without such a confrontation, he admitted to having mixed emotions about it.
“Let me tell you this, I don’t like it. I don’t like it when people do that because I would not want it to happen to me,” Lemon said. “But I have mixed emotions because Tucker has done this to people before. Tucker said some really nasty and silly things about me, and the next day there were paparazzi in front of my house, hiding, taking pictures. So I don't want it to happen to anyone, I don't want it to happen to Tucker, but when you do things like that, I don't know.”
