Don Lemon Rips Trump for Going After McCain at CPAC: ‘He Should Be Ashamed’

Last night CNN’s Don Lemon went through President Trump‘s big CPAC speech and called out the part about John McCain in particular.

Trump got the Friday crowd booing McCain as he talked about that pivotal vote McCain cast during the health care debate last year.

Meghan McCain recently said, after a phone call, that she didn’t think Trump would be going after her father again, and after the President did so on Friday, she said on The View she and her mother will publicly respond next week.

Lemon last night called this “unnecessary” and said, “It’s a low blow, it’s unnecessary, and he should be ashamed of himself, and the people there should be ashamed of themselves for applauding.”

ACU Chair Matt Schlapp took to Twitter last night to defend the booing of McCain:
