On Thursday, CNN’s Don Lemon said that First Lady Melania Trump’s event at an online safety conference to promote her “Be Best” campaign was irrelevant.
While talking at the event Trump said that she is not “surprised” that she gets ridiculed by the media.
“It is not news or surprising to me that critics and the media have chosen to ridicule me for speaking out on this issue, and that’s ok,” she said.
After playing the clip of Trump speaking, Lemon wondered why it even mattered.
“Considering the tweets this morning from her husband, but why is this relevant right now? I really don’t care. Do you? It’s completely irrelevant,” Lemon said.
