Don Lemon Rips Trump on Day 7 of Shutdown: He’s Sounding ‘Like a Pouting Child’


It has been seven days since the United States government entered into shutdown mode and according to CNN’s Don Lemon “there is no end in sight.”

The CNN host also said that Trump’s mood seems grim.

“President Trump is staying in Washington. He’s growing angrier by the moment, sounding really like a pouting child,” Lemon continued on. “He’s now threatening to close the border with Mexico.”

Lemon was referring to this tweet sent by Trump earlier on Friday.

It read: “We will be forced to close the Southern Border entirely if the Obstructionist Democrats do not give us the money to finish the Wall & also change the ridiculous immigration laws that our Country is saddled with. Hard to believe there was a Congress & President who would approve!”

Lemon then pointed out that the president “owns the shutdown” based on his own words in the Oval Office.

He then played a clip of Trump saying that Trump would be “proud” to shutdown the government for border security.

“Well, he’s got that right,” Lemon said. “And the blame [for the shutdown] is all his.”
