Don Lemon Goes Off on ‘Unhinged’ Trump Speech: ‘He Was Like a Child’

‘He was like a child blaming a sibling on something else’

Don Lemon Goes Off on ‘Unhinged’ Trump Speech: ‘He Was Like a Child’ (Mediaite)

Immediately following President Donald Trump’s unchained, rambling, off-the-cuff Phoenix rally speech where he railed endlessly against the media, took not-so-veiled shots at Arizona lawmakers, and hinted that he’d be pardoning Joe Arpaio soon enough, CNN anchor Don Lemonunleashed on the President of the United States.

Well, what do you say to that?” Lemon noted. “I’m just going to speak from the heart here. What we witnessed is a total eclipse of the facts.”

Stating that Trump had “lied directly to the American people,” and attempted to “rewire history” around his Charlottesville response, the CNN host pulled no punches with his observation of the speech.

“He’s unhinged,” Lemon declared. “It’s embarrassing and I don’t mean for us the media because he went after us, but for the country.”

And he was not done.

“His speech was without thought, without reason, devoid of facts, devoid of wisdom,” he exclaimed. “There was no gravitas, no sanity. He was like a child blaming a sibling on something else. He did it. I didn’t do it.”

He went on to state that an American viewing the speech had to “wonder what in the world is going on.”
