On Monday, CNN’s Don Lemon ripped President Donald Trump for after his embarrassing solution to stop the North Dame fire.
The Notre Dame cathedral in Paris caught on fire. As of now, zeros deaths have been reported and the fire is being seen as happening involuntarily.
However, Trump took to Twitter to offer a suggestion for how the fire should have been combated. Trump said that the “flying water tankers” should have been used to put out the fire.
So horrible to watch the massive fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Perhaps flying water tankers could be used to put it out. Must act quickly!

“The president who you probably remember suggested that raking the forest floors would have been prevented the devastating wildfires in northern California had a suggestion for French firefighters today,” Lemon said.
“He said perhaps water tankers could be used to put it out. Here’s what the French civil defense agency said because they were not having that, and they tweeted this in English by the way. ‘While the fire was burning, while it was burning, all means are being used except for water bombing aircraft which, if used, could lead to the collapse of the entire structure of the cathedral,'” Lemon said.
“Again the president said good things but you would think the president who made his name as a builder would know better,” Lemon said.

Trump’s horsewhip-carrying chief of protocol will resign after intimidating State Department staff: report
President Donald Trump's chief of protocol plans to step down just ahead of the G-20 summit in Japan, according to Bloomberg News.
Sean Lawler, whose job includes assisting the president in diplomatic talks overseas and with foreign leaders in the White House, faces an investigation from the State Department's inspector general for intimidating subordinates, including carrying a horsewhip around the office.
The president reportedly did not care for Lawler, at one point asking officials why he still works at the White House.
Jerry Falwell, Jr blasted as ‘un-Christian prat’ after trying to defend Donald Trump in battle with Southern Baptist ethics chief
Liberty University President Jerry Falwell, Jr. was ripped online for attempting to rationalize President Donald Trump's detention camps for children.
Dr. Russell Moore, the president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, posted on Twitter an Associated Press story on the "perilous conditions" at a Texas Border Patrol station holding 300 children.
"The reports of the conditions for migrant children at the border should shock all of our consciences. Those created in the image of God should be treated with dignity and compassion, especially those seeking refuge from violence back home. We can do better than this," Moore wrote.
Prosecutors offered indicted GOP congressman a deal to keep his multiple taxpayer-funded trysts quiet — but he refused
On Tuesday, CNN reported that Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA), facing indictment for stealing campaign funds and falsifying spending reports, was offered a deal by to keep secret the incidents in which he used taxpayer money to finance affairs with lobbyists — but he refused.
"Prosecutors told a judge they tried to cut a deal with Hunter to avoid revealing the alleged tryst, but his attorneys refused," reported CNN's Tom Foreman.
The affairs were made public shortly after it was revealed that Hunter's wife Margaret, an alleged co-conspirator in the scheme, was cooperating with prosecutors. Hunter had previously tried to blame the entire scheme on his wife — a claim that looks increasingly dubious.
