CNN’s Don Lemon Rips Trump: ‘Just Because You Say You’re Not Racist Doesn’t Make It So’ (Mediaite)

CNN’s Don Lemon opened his show tonight with a scathing monologue about how President Trump‘s racist tendencies were on full display once again when he attacked Elizabeth Warren.

Lemon began by talking about the moment when Trump decided to revive his conflict with the senator by calling her “Pocahontas” in reference to her unproven claim of having Native American ancestry. Trump uttered this insult during a ceremony for World War II Navajo code talkers. Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders would go on to defend the president today after Warren condemned him for ruining the event with a “racial slur.”
