In a behind-the-scenes episode, we begin with a question: Will the real Don Lemon please stand up?
As Lemon talks, he mentions his newfound stardom. “I used to be careful, a little bit more careful, like, too careful — now the same person you see on the air is the same person you see off of the air. I think that some people really love it, it makes me a really polarizing figure in some ways, which may not be so bad thing for cable news; so things we talk about if the camera wasn’t rolling at the bar, at the kitchen table, I will say on television.”
Asked about his climb to primetime, he said, “I’ve worked really hard – it hasn’t been an overnight success.”
Not so shockingly, he’d “like to spend a day or two with Donald Trump.”
