CNN host Don Lemon opened his show by absolutely shredding President Donald Trump on what Lemon dubbed “Lyin’ Friday.”
He then played a clip of Trump saying this: “I think that the report yesterday may be more important than anything, it totally exonerates me.”
In response, Lemon noted, “No, that’s what you’d call a lie. It has nothing to do with you. The report chastised former FBI director James Comey handling of the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation. And it concluded that Comey was not motivated by political bias. Apparently, you didn’t read that page.”
Then he played a clip of Trump saying this: “You look at what happened they were plotting against my election.”
Lemon once again called him out.
“That would be something else you’d call a lie. Just read the report, sir,” Lemon said.
In response to a clip of Trump saying this, “I think Comey was the ringleader of this whole den of thieves,” Lemon shredded Trump.
“That is a lie too. Comey was held in very high regard by his top staff and by FBI employees. And this lie is also something else, an insult to the tens of thousands of people who work at the FBI, which is considered the premier law enforcement agency in the world. You also regularly trashed Robert Mueller’s investigation, today you said it’s totally discredited, which it is not. You regularly trashed his team and you don’t pass up an opportunity to do so again.”
Then, after outing other Trump falsehoods he concluded, “And that’s not even all of today’s lies, but we only have two hours.”
