CNN’s Don Lemon Reporting DRUNK Live During New Year’s Celebration [VIDEO]

CNN’s Don Lemon rang in the New Year drunk on the air, popping tequila shots with fellow CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin (who looked and sounded like she’d had a few too many as well), sitting at a bar after the ball dropped officially ringing in 2017 in New York City.

Watch below as a snockered Don Lemon gets his ear pierced live — impromptu — and almost does a striptease with Baldwin begging him to stop and not take any more tequila shots (and not to “show nipple”).

Might be the first time in history one TV news anchor had to cut off another one on live television due to severe inebriation.
