It’s not terribly newsworthy when avowed Trump-critic Don Lemon criticizes President Donald Trump.
It is noteworthy, however, when the CNN anchor systematically details numerous examples of how the Commander in Chief distorts a number of news stories that paint him and his administration in an unfavorable light.
This is one such instance.
Lemon opened his critique by reporting on President Trump’s dismissal of his own administration’s report on the dire consequences of climate change, saying “he just doesn’t believe it.”
In Lemon’s opinion, this”fits a pattern that this president ignores information he doesn’t like,” before listing examples: “Tonight he falsely claimed that three border patrol agents were very badly hurt in a clash with migrants even though his own customs and border protection agency says none of the agents suffered serious injuries. So last week he dismissed the CIA’s assessment that Saudi Arabia’s crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, ordered the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. He also blamed California’s devastating wildfires on poor forest management completely ignoring the years-long drought in that state. ”
