Chris Cuomo: ‘I Don’t See How [Trump] Wins.’ Don Lemon: ‘Have You Seen What the Democrats Are Doing?’

CNN host Don Lemon took a shot at Democrats when fellow host Chris Cuomo said he couldn’t see Donald Trump getting reelected at his current approval level, asking “Have you seen what the Democrats are doing?”

The two hosts bantered at the top of Tuesday night’s edition of CNN Tonight With Don Lemon, and Lemon observed that Trump’s dishonesty “works,” and that “there are a lot of people who believe” Trump’s lies.

When Cuomo protested that half the country didn’t believe Trump, Lemon said Trump “had enough who believed a lot of the lies before the election to make him president. That is enough. And he continues to do it because what does it do? It works. I’m a great businessman.”

Cuomo disagreed, saying “I don’t see how he wins again with the numbers he has right now.”

“Have you seen what the Democrats are doing?” Lemon asked.

Lemon did not elaborate, instead observing that Trump “won without having that big of a base, anyway.”

But on Monday night, Lemon was more specific in his criticism of Democrats, ripping the candidates for what he called an “apology tour” for offenses ranging from the allegations of inappropriate touching against former Vice President Joe Biden, to Beto O’Rourke‘s white privilege, to Elizabeth Warren‘s handling of the controversy over her Native American heritage, or lack thereof.
