CNN’s Don Lemon Defends Toobin After Steve Cortes’ Comments: ‘Gross Mischaracterization’ (Mediaite)

CNN anchor Don Lemon came to the defense of colleague Jeffrey Toobin after network commentator Steve Cortes took a shot at Toobin earlier tonight.

Toobin this morning blasted President Donald Trump for his comments on the “success” of the federal government’s Puerto Rico response when 2975 people were killed. He asked, “Isn’t the story that these people who died – apparently thousands of them in Puerto Rico, 3,000 as you point out – they’re not white people, and they don’t count to Donald Trump as much as the deaths of white people. You hate to say that about someone, but look at his record. Isn’t that indicative of who he is and what he stands for?”
