CNN anchor Don Lemon went hard against Donald Trump on Sunday, taunting the President and asking why former President Barack Obama gets “under” his “skin” so much.
After President Trump re-tweeted a conspiracy theory that Obama was “running the Russian hoax,” Lemon said the Commander-in-Chief’s re-tweet “a new low from a president who goes low all the time.”

Lemon Taunts Trump
Lemon said that it was “a shameless attempt to distract from” Trump and the administration’s “mishandling” of the COVID-19 crisis.
Then his rant went into comparing Obama and Trump.
“Hm. Boy, oh, boy, that’s leadership,” Lemon said after playing a clip of Obama talking about the coronavirus pandemic. “That’s compassion. It’s too bad that President Trump can’t show either. By the way, what is it about President Obama that really gets under your skin? Is it because he’s smarter than you? Better educated?”

‘What is it about him? That he’s a black man that’s accomplished?’

“Made it on his own, didn’t need daddy’s help, wife is more accomplished, better looking, I know know, what is it?” Lemon said sarcastically. “What is it about him? That he’s a black man that’s accomplished, became president? That he punked you on the whole birth certificate thing? What is it about him? Just wondering.”
This is @CNN’s Don Lemon. Watch this and try to tell me he’s objective. He’s not. He’s also incredibly disrespectful to our First Lady in the clip.

Lemon then played a clip of former President George W. Bush speaking about the coronavirus. The CNN host called it an example of “a real president showing compassion for his fellow Americans.”
“How does President Trump respond?” Lemon said. “Predictably, he makes it all about him, about his wounded pride, his constant airing of grievances, tweeting that former President Bush didn’t defend him on impeachment.”
“How about showing some compassion?” Lemon added.

How Is This ‘News?’
Conservative social media guru Benny Johnson said in his tweet, “This isn’t journalism.” He’s absolutely correct.
A CNN anchor running off at the mouth about a President he absolutely despises is acceptable practice at CNN? Apparently so.
Of course, this is nothing new. As conservative columnist and host Tim Young noted, “#DonLemon asks Trump, ‘Why are you so obsessed with Obama?” on Don Lemon’s 5,000th consecutive show ranting about Trump.”

And don’t expect Don Lemon or CNN to change one bit.
