CNN’s Don Lemon has a long history of saying silly things. What he said on his latest show was no different.
Following reports that President Trump referred to some countries as ‘s***hole’ nations,’ Lemon blasted 45 as ‘racist.’
Not only that, but he called out Trump supporters, too.
From The Hill:
CNN host Don Lemon began his show Thursday night by labeling President Trump as “racist” in the wake of reports that the president called Haiti and African nations “shithole countries.”
“The president of the United States is racist,” Lemon said at the opening of his show. “A lot of us already knew that.”
Lemon was responding to reports from The Washington Post and other media outlets that Trump referred to immigrants from Haiti and African countries as coming from “shithole countries.”

Lemon’s condemnation of the president and his supporters weren’t the only instances of pointed words being used on the program Thursday night. One of Lemon’s guests via remote, Republican strategist and frequent Trump critic Rick Wilson, clashed with fellow guest John Fredericks, a conservative talk show host and fervent Trump supporter, over Trump’s “sh–hole” remark. At one point Wilson said, “John, I will gut you like a fish on this show if you want to keep this up.”
Get it together, Don.
Blasting Trump supporters isn’t likely to win CNN more viewers anytime soon.
