WATCH: Don Lemon laughs out loud at Trump’s claim he’s more presidential than anyone except Lincoln
CNN’s Don Lemon on Tuesday could not contain himself after Donald Trump insisted he’s more presidential than any of his predecessors “with the exception of the late, great Abraham Lincoln,” bursting into laughter at the top of his program, “Don Lemon Tonight.”
“President Trump tells a cheering crowd in Ohio this,” Lemon said, playing a clip of Trump’s self-praise at a rally on Tuesday.
After showing the clip, Lemon began chuckling before catching himself and telling the audience, “sorry.”
“President Trump starting his day at the crack of dawn where else? On Twitter,” Lemon said. “Targeting? Attorney General Jeff Sessions.”
Trump on Tuesday re-upped his very public feud with Sessions, criticizing the nation’s top law enforcement officer in a series of tweets for not going after his former political rival Hillary Clinton, among other gripes.
“Mr. president, those emails and the servers did Hillary Clinton no favors during the election,” Lemon said. “She lost in part because of that. You won. We all know that. We’ve moved on… shouldn’t you?”
