Don Lemon: Today We Saw ‘The Real Donald Trump Proving All of His Critics Right’

CNN’s Don Lemon went on a tear against President Trump over his press conference today, saying, “This is a sad moment for the country. I think it was an awful moment for the person who is supposed to represent the highest office of the land.”

“There today,” he told Wolf Blitzer, “you saw the real Donald Trump proving all of his critics right in that moment. Everyone was sitting there watching saying, ‘Here we go. His true colors are coming out.'”

Lemon said that whatever the other side did, one side “is a Nazi, white supremacist group” and “what they want to do in their hearts is extinguish people who look like me and who look like you, Wolf, Jewish people, black people, even women.”

He concluded by saying the following about the President:

“The president is ignorant of history. He does not know context. He should be ashamed of himself. He should go back to school and get an elementary education on how this country started and about protest groups and how this country works and who he represents and who he should represent.”
