Watch Don Lemon report on the president’s fears of windmills — after Trump bashed CNN

Published

on

While on vacation in New Jersey, President Donald Trump repeatedly attacked CNN on Twitter on Tuesday.

Trump argued that it was ok to use an ethnic slur to refer to CNN anchor Chris Cuomo.

That night, anchor Don Lemon did not shy away from covering Trump, along with a chyron reading, “This is not politics as usual; this is the president going off the rails during a speech.”

He began with a clip from the speech featuring Trump complaining about former President Barack Obama.

“This president cannot get over Obama. He can’t quit him,” he said.

After reminding Trump of his poor standing with African Americans, Lemon examined Trump’s irrational fear of windmills.

The host then played hilarious clips of Trump ranting about windmills, including claiming they cause cancer, which Lemon fact-checked.

He then weaved in an analysis of Trump’s comments about former White House press secretary Anthony Scaramucci and concluded with how the administration’s latest immigration crackdown is an insult to the memory of former President Ronald Reagan.

Veteran journalist Sam Donaldson: Trump’s rabid followers will never get their ‘white Christian country’ back

Published

on

Veteran White House reporter Sam Donaldson insisted on Sunday that President Donald Trump's supporters do not represent the diversity of the United States.

"His strong supporters -- I mean, lock her up, I mean, all the things he says, all the vicious, mean things he says, they love it," Donaldson told CNN host Brian Stelter. "They’re good Americans otherwise. They’ll probably give you the shirt off their back, they’ll help you if you need it, but they have this fixation."

"They want to return this country to the white Christian country that they believe it should be again," he continued. "They don’t want the diversity, and they follow him for this, but they’re not the country. We are a diverse people, we are good and strong because of that.

CNN’s Tapper expertly nails Lindsey Graham and Pompeo for Trump cover-up after pushing congressional oversight

Published

on

In concluding editorial comments on CNN's "State of the Union," host Jake Tapper use the words of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) to point out their hypocrisy as they provide cover for Donald Trump.

As the CNN host noted, "The White House sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi this week suggesting that President Trump is not going to cooperate with the impeachment inquiry thumbing his nose at the notion that the U.S. government was designed with three co-equal branches specifically to offer checks and balances on each other."

"When President Obama was in the White House, there was lots of oversight on the Fast and Furious scandal and the Benghazi tragedy -- we covered it," he continued. "There were whistleblowers -- we covered them. Journalists who covered and citizens who followed Benghazi may find it stunning to find Republican members of Congress trash-talking whistle-blowers and the oversight responsibilities of the House."

‘Are you really not capable of answering a question?’: GOP lawmaker wilts as Tapper grills him on Trump corruption

Published

on

An appearance on CNN's State of the Union by Sen. Kevin Kramer (R-ND) may not have panned out as well as he had hoped after he was peppered with questions about Donald Trump's corruption and false claims and was unable to answer host Jake Tapper's questions.

Asked about Trump and former New York Mayor Rudy Giulani's fishing expedition for dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Kramer instead talked about Hunter Biden's "corruption," which the CNN host promptly slapped down with a fact check, saying there was no corruption involved -- before moving on to the president's quid pro quo phonecall with Ukraine.
