CNN’s Don Lemon slammed President Donald Trump for calling Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation process a “hoax.”
“He would have you believe all that was a hoax cooked up by the Democrats,” Lemon said. “So let’s take a look at some of the things President Trump has claimed were hoaxes. Things that all turned out to be true.”
Lemon said that the following events were “hoaxes” according to Trump.
“The thing he has called both a witch hunt and a hoax — Russia’s election interference,” Lemon said.
He continued, “Donald Trump thinks global warming is a hoax. He has been claiming that for years.”
“The president also seems to think the death toll in Puerto Rico from Hurricane Maria is a hoax,” he added.
Trump also thought Stormy Daniels’ case was a hoax.

‘He does not belong in this office’: Ron Reagan says Trump ‘has been crazy because he is crazy’
The son of Republican President Ronald Reagan blasted President Donald Trump on MSNBC on Tuesday.
Ron Reagan, Jr. was interviewed on "Hardball" by Chris Matthews.
The host recounted Trump's attacks on Denmark after they said Greenland was not for sale.
"He wants to fight with everybody, including the quiet, American-loving Danes. What’s up?" Matthews asked.
"Well, it’s craziness, but I take a little umbrage at this idea that we have to ascribe it to something like the economy or his anxiousness about re-election. He’s acting the way he’s acting because he is who he is and what he is," Reagan replied.
