Published

Former President Barack Obama gave a speech slamming President Donald Trump in Illinois on Friday.

During his speech, Obama questioned what has happened to the Republican Party under the leadership of Trump.

“The politics of division and resentment and paranoia has unfortunately found a home in the Republican Party,” Obama said.

During his Friday night show, CNN’s Don Lemon echoed the same question.

“What happened to the Republican party? ” Lemon asked. “That is a great question.”

Lemon then played video clips of Republicans contradicting themselves and dissing Trump before he took office.

“What happened to Republicans like Lindsey Graham who said this about Donald Trump back in 2016,” Lemon said.

“I think he’s a crook. I think he’s crazy. I think he’s unfit for office,” Graham said in the video clip that Lemon played.

Lemon then transitioned to a current video of Graham.

“You know what concerns me about the American press is this endless attempt to label the guy as some kind of crook who is not fit to be president,” Graham said.

“He’s the one who said it in the first place. You can’t make this up,” Lemon said.

Lemon then provided more examples such as Trump’s counselor Kellyanne Conway and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) contradicting themselves.

Published

CNN contributor Rick Santorum ran into some fierce resistance on Sunday morning when he attempted to defend the explicit racism in Donald Trump's tweets at Democratic lawmakers -- with the only other conservative on the panel blowing up on him.

Speaking with fill-in host Dana Bash, the former GOP Senator from Pennsylvania was right away on the defensive when asked about the president's tweets and the resulting "send her back" chant at a rally in North Carolina.

"He says things to bring attention to these issues and I know it's hair on fire time for everyone on the left," Santorum offered in Trump's defense, which brought a sharp comeback from fellow conservative CNN commentator S.E. Cupp.

According to Guy Smith, who advised former President Bill Clinton during his impeachment ordeal, Mueller's own words will carry tremendous weight with voters who have no idea what is in his report on the president.

"Well, what we're going to see is people who have never read the report, which is most everybody, and they have only heard President Trump and the attorney general say he's been exonerated. It does not," he told host Christi Paul. "So, what's going to happen is that they're going to be hearing Robert Mueller in his own words say that the president obstructed justice.
