In an brutal commentary segment during his CNN show, host Don Lemon pounded the White House for continuing to attack a black congresswoman and allowing White House Chief of Staff John Kelly to lie about her.
From the outset, Lemon hit President Donald Trump’s administration for “lying” before slamming them for a pattern of deceit.
In particular, Lemon took umbrage with White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders challenging reporters by saying Kelly’s military background makes him above criticism — even when he doesn’t tell the truth.
“With all due respect, it is absolutely appropriate to question anyone when their facts are wrong and when they refuse to admit it,” Lemon lectured. “That goes for a general turned chief of staff, a press secretary and a president of the United States.”
“Sadly, the truth is that lately it seems no one who stands at that podium is able to admit that. To admit that facts do matter. So why lie?,” he asked.

‘You can buy the USA’ thanks to Trump: Counterintelligence expert
Counterintelligence expert Malcolm Nance said during a political discussion Wednesday that the United States of America has clearly become a "pay-to-play" nation under President Donald Trump.
"After 2016, it became clear that the only thing we were really going to look into was Donald Trump's relationships with Moscow.," Nance said in a discussion with SiriusXM Progress host Dean Obeidallah.
"But I think it became pretty clear to the oligarchs that they weren't going after the oligarchs, they were going after Donald Trump and a very specific link to foreign intelligence," continued Nance. "And that meant their money could talk again. You have to understand, these people were doing it to lift these crippling sanctions that Trump fought tooth and nail against."
Growing chorus of Senate Republicans rebuke Trump over his Syria pullout
In the wake of President Trump's decision to pull US troops out of northeast Syria, a growing chorus of Senate Republicans are dismissing Trump's threat of economic sanctions against Turkey if it continues its incursion into the region, the Washington Examiner reports.
According to Sen. John Thune (R-SD), attempts to apply meaningful sanctions on Turkey after Trump green lit its invasion are just politicians "grasping to come up with something," adding that the Trump's decision "was a mistake" from the beginning.
