"It's a bunch of people on the left who all agree with each other, and there's no diversity of opinion," Lemon said of MSNBC. "And they're saying mean, smug things about people who may disagree with them."

Lemon suggested there would be more outrage if a white Fox News panel made similar jokes about the black grandson.
