Don Lemon is absolutely fed up with Trump and unafraid to let the world know "the president of the United States is racist."
The President has been under fire after an alleged comment he made Thursday in which he called Haiti, El Salvador and African nations “shithole countries.” According to the Washington Post, Trump grew frustrated in talks of protecting immigrants from the aforementioned nations as part of a bipartisan immigration deal, according to several people briefed on the meeting.
“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump said, according to the Post.
This comment immediately -- and rightfully -- sparked outrage, and even Don Lemon himself had time today to tell Trump about himself.
“This is CNN Tonight, I’m Don Lemon. The president of the United States is racist. A lot of us already knew that,” the anchor said into the camera.
Don Lemon calls Trump racist here & then amazingly through silence, tells people who still support him to go f*ck themselves. This is an inspiring watch. Kudos to Don for stepping up.#RacistTrump @donlemon https://t.co/OVAV8v449F— Scott Dworkin (@funder) January 12, 2018
"And for all of you that have over the past few years have uttered that tired, lazy, uninformed, uneducated, ignorant response of calling me and others who point out racist behavior racist, you know you can go do?" Lemon said before taking a brief silence. "I can't say that. But you can go read a book, a history book."
This type of read from Don Lemon?
Lemon's relationship and reporting on the black community hasn't always been admired. However 2018 Don Lemon grew that fro out, and came to let us know he isn't playing with you all anymore.
