Lemon ‘On Assignment’ After Raging At Fellow Anchor

  • CNN’s Don Lemon was absent from “CNN This Morning” on Friday following reports that he recently snapped at co-host Kaitlan Collins, but the network says it’s unrelated to any internal beef.
  • “Don is on assignment in Los Angeles,” Collins said to open the show, squashing hopes of anyone tuning in to see if there was awkwardness on the set. On Thursday, it was reported that Lemon had a “nasty” exchange in December with his “CNN This Morning” colleague.
