At the top of his program tonight, CNN anchor Don Lemon furiously tore into President Donald Trump over the set of tweets he sent out this morning attacking MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski. And, besides having some very strong words for the president, Lemon also took aim at those who have defended his actions.
“I have heard and said the phrase ‘this is not normal’ so many times that I’m sick of hearing it and sick of saying it,” Lemon exclaimed, after asking that the intro music be stopped. “What the president did today was just flat out gross and disgusting. Saying it was juvenile would be insulting to children.”
Saying anyone who attempts to defend Trump’s tweets is “an enabler,” Lemon mocked deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders for saying this is like being in the Twilight Zone.
“Yes, it is like living in the Twilight Zone,” he noted. “The president should be ashamed of himself…but he’s not.”
After pointing out the damage that Trump has done to the dignity of the office of president, Lemon then lit into Republicans who have supported POTUS after previous instances of Trump crossing the line.
“How many times will you look the other way?” Lemon asked. “How can you look at yourselves in the mirror? How can you?”
“Mark my words, he’ll do it again. He can’t help himself,” the anchor concluded.
