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.

Appearing on CNN's "State of the Union" with Jake Tapper, White House National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien ducked directly defending the president's Saturday threat to use "vicious dogs and ominous weapons" of Washington D.C. protesters, by instead talking about supposed Antifa activity during the George Floyd protests.

After reading the president's tweet, host Tapper pressed,  "Do you think messages like that are helping to unite the country and calm fears?”

With O'Brien noting, "[Trump] was trying to de-escalate. He didn’t want violence, he’s trying to stop the violence that we saw that took place overnight," he then went on to drag in reports being pushed by Donald Trump's administration that Antifa -- which he mentioned frequently during the entire interview -- had taken over the protests.
