Watch: CNN anchor Don Lemon shoved by Bachmann camp

Pin it

Things got a bit rowdy when CNN anchor, Don Lemon, attempted to interview Michele Bachmann amongst a crowd at the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines. Lemon claims he was repeatedly elbowed by several campaign staff workers and even pushed by Bachmann's equally cuckoo husband, Marcus. According to Lemon:

"I told them, asked them not to elbow me. And then her husband Marcus started doing the same thing. And then he elbowed me into [a golf] cart. And I said, ‘You just pushed me into the cart.' And he goes, ‘No, you did it yourself.' It was just, I don’t know why they would choose to do that. We weren’t asking any ‘gotcha’ questions."

Could the notoriously homophobic Bachmann have been actively trying to aggressively pester the openly gay anchor? If you can't pray the gay away, you might as well try and push it out, right? Let the conspiracy theories commence.
