Don Lemon on Trump Showing Up for Bush 41 Funeral After Talking ‘Smack’: ‘Hell to the No’


CNN host Don Lemon doesn’t think President Donald Trump should have shown up at George H.W.  Bush‘s funeral at least not after the way he has acted towards the Bush family and all that smack he’s talked about them.

During a lengthy handover at the top of hour, Lemon said he would not have gone because you don’t show up at your enemy’s funeral.

“If I didn’t like someone that much and I talked as much smack, I would not show up at their funeral, okay?” Lemon said during a discussion with Chris Cuomo. “That’s reality. Do people you hate — you don’t like in real life, who are not in political office — do you show up at your enemy’s funeral?”

Cuomo then said it was about respecting the presidency and the fact the president represented the American people.

Lemon, however, was not done.

“I think you respect the person, living or dead,” Lemon continued on. “An office is not a human being. I don’t think it’s respect for the human being if you talk smack about them, if you say the nastiest things about them, if you treat them as subhuman, and then you want to show up at their funeral. Really? Hell to the no.”
