‘You’re Getting Clobbered’: CNN’s Don Lemon Faces Off with Donald Trump

lemon trumpCNN’s Don Lemon spoke tonight with Donald Trump about the avalanche of controversy surrounding his comments about Mexican immigrant rapists and criminals.

Trump got dumped by Univision, NBC, and Macy’s. In addition, golf organizations Trump has ties to distanced themselves from his remarks and now New York City is reviewing Trump’s contracts with the city.

Lemon started things out on politics, telling Trump he’s “getting clobbered” by Republican leaders. Trump insisted the GOP takes him very seriously, and he even took a few shots at Jeb Bush and Chris Christie.

As for his remarks about immigrants, Trump stood by every single syllable of it. Lemon asked, “Why did you have to say they were rapists, though?” And as we reported earlier today, Trump responded by emphatically saying, “Somebody’s doing the raping.”

He trashed NBC as “weak” for cutting ties to him, while saying Macy’s “folded under pressure” but also that it was his decision to split.

In the second segment, Lemon asked Trump for his thoughts on race relations and which one of his GOP rivals he would fire from The Apprentice first.
