After a kooky and ghastly day in President Donald Trump’s White House, CNN host Don Lemon connected the dots on the one consistency since declaring his candidacy in 2015: lies.
The president’s administration began with the first day on the job when former press secretary Sean Spicer proclaimed the largest inauguration in history “period!”
“Well, that was a lie. Period,” Lemon said. “You think they would have learned by now, but people on team Trump just keep getting caught in their own lies they think they can lie and get away with it. Why? Why wouldn’t they? After all, the president does.”
Lemon pivoted to Scott Pruitt’s lies. In a Fox News interview, the EPA administrator said one thing. Before Congress, he said another. Playing the clip of the Pruitt hearing this week, Lemon pointed out the lies, noting “and they call us fake news somehow.”
Trump even declared that Dr. Ronny Jackson has the experience to run the Department Veterans Affairs. Yet, when his press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked about the president’s comment proclaiming Dr. Jackson’s experience, she lied and said that the reporters were taking his words out of context.
Lemon played the video just to be sure.
“And that’s the thing about this truth-challenged administration,” he continued. “It all starts at the very top with a president who says whatever he wants. Whenever he wants. Listen to what he told Fox News today about his fixer and long-time personal attorney Michael Cohen.”
