Don Lemon Got Manhandled By A Rabbi On TV Today

Let's put this one in the "so this happened" Hall of Fame, shall we?

To set the scene: a surprisingly dressed-down Don Lemon and a rabbi walked into CNN to discuss the "knockout game," that supposed new urban scourge that's plaguing America's cities and may also be a racist myth. Lemon even said that it was probably a myth, but still the segment went on.

The rabbi, according to CNN, is a "black belt rabbi" who wants to help the children avoid the scary people coming to get them. So, naturally, he demonstrated on Lemon, gently putting him in some headlocks and things.

On the plus side, we like Lemon's haircut!
