An exasperated Don Lemon on Tuesday ticked off the days headlines, marveling at the sheer absurdity of Donald Trump’s ongoing saga with adult film star Stormy Daniels, coupled with the president’s chummy relationship to Russian president Vladimir Putin and a host of other crises plaguing the United States.
“President Trump facing lawsuits tonight from three women, a porn star, a playboy model, and a reality TV star, three different cases over his alleged relationship with three different women,” Lemon began Tuesday. “I mean, this is where we are right now.”
Reading off Daniels’ Tuesday tweet—in which the adult film star accused the president of having her “bullied”—Lemon asked, “Is this really happening?”
“The president may really have met his match in Stormy Daniels,” Lemon said.
The CNN host went on to explain the Daniels developments come “as the president’s team is laying the groundwork for what could be a monumental interview with the special counsel, Robert Mueller, amid serious questions about what exactly is between the president of the United States and Russia.”
“President Trump called Vladimir Putin today to congratulate him on his victory in what can only be called a rigged election,” Lemon explained. “We first found out from the Kremlin—by the way. What the president apparently didn’t do, according to Sarah Sanders, is condemn the nerve agent poisoning in the UK which the British and our government have blamed on Moscow.”
Lemon noted the president reportedly ignored advice from his national security advisers not to congratulate Putin for winning the “rigged” Russia election.
“But apparently a president who loves nothing more than to talk about his own electoral college triumph just couldn’t keep himself from congratulating the Russian dictator on his victory,” Lemon said.
Adding that his show will also report on the latest in “the hunt for a serial bomber in Austin, Texas,” Lemon let out a long sigh.

Brutal video targeting moms hits Trump for trying to hurt their children by returning to school in pandemic
President Donald Trump and Education Sec. Betsy DeVos announced this month that schools must reopen regardless of the dangers of the COVID-19 pandemic. Republican leaders have maintained that not being in school is so detrimental to the development of children that parents must risk their lives and the lives of their families, teachers, principals, and other school administration members.
Author Don Winslow posted a video directed at mothers recalling all of the great moments in a child's development from their first words to their first steps and their first days of school.
"Now Donald Trump wants you to abandon your most primal and powerful motherly instinct to protect your child," the video says. "Trump and Betsy DeVos have said children don't get Coronavirus. Tell that to the families of these children who all died from Coronavirus."
The pandemic has exposed a disturbing fact about who the government helps most
In January 2020, the NASDAQ stock market’s index stood just under 10,000. In the March crash, it fell to 7,000. As of July 10, 2020, it hit 10,600. The U.S. government’s economic policies produced a “recovery” for the rich who own the vast bulk of stocks. Their holdings are worth more now than before COVID-19 hit us. The other major benchmarks for securities, the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the Standard and Poor 500, show similarly dramatic, slightly smaller recoveries.
Massive government economic intervention—what most of its current beneficiaries have always denounced—subsidized those recoveries. The Federal Reserve pumped unprecedented amounts of new money into the U.S. economy after mid-March. That money poured into the stock market and fueled its rise. The U.S. Treasury provided unprecedented direct cash supports to much of corporate America.
