CNN’s Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon shared a brief exchange between their Tuesday’s night show.
In light of Paul Manafot and Michel Cohen’s guilty pleas, Lemon pointed out that now the president has nowhere to turn.
Lemon suggested that President Donald Trump’s team has diverted attention from the trial by calling it a “witch hunt” and “fake news.”
“Here’s where we end up. [When Cohen] says to the judge in this case at the direction of a candidate. Now, all along you and I have been fighting allegations from Trump’s people that it was fake news. Nothing to it. A witch-hunt, move along. He doesn’t know anything about it. And Today, [they] can’t really say that.”

Baptists unanimously vote out lesbian couple over same-sex marriage: ‘It was more out of spite’
A lesbian couple from Mississippi says they were asked to leave their Baptist church over their relationship.
Mary Catherine Trollinger and her partner Olivia Jennings were notified by letter that they were no longer welcome at Gracewood Baptist Church in Southaven, where they met last year, reported WATN-TV.
Their pastor, Barry Baker, signed the letter, which stated he had warned them against pursuing an "unbiblical" and "degrading" same-sex relationship, and told the couple they had been unanimously -- and "sadly" -- voted out during a special business meeting at the church.
The misguided attacks on ‘This Land Is Your Land’
In recent years, Woody Guthrie’s “This Land Is Your Land” has become a rallying cry for immigrants. And in July, after President Donald Trump tweeted that four Democratic congresswomen of color needed to “go back where they came from,” Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, one of the four targeted, responded with a tweet quoting Guthrie’s lyrics.
What states that don’t protect LGBTQ workers from discrimination have in common
Are you fully protected from employment discrimination?
For employees who identify as LGBTQ, and work in one of at least 17 states nationwide that fail to protect workers, the answer at best is uncertain. At worst, it’s “no” under state statute.
One of my areas of research is employment discrimination. In an article to be published this fall, I examined the characteristics of states which have adopted legislation protecting LGBTQ employees from discrimination.
