CNN’s very own Don Lemon slammed Trump early Monday, delivering a biting dose of reality after the President spat a racial slur at Sen. Elizabeth Warren. Early this week, Trump was giving a speech at an event honoring Navajo veterans when he randomly threw in an insult aimed at Warren, referring to her as Pocahontas.
“I have a whole lot to say about this president’s increasingly erratic behavior over the past week or so,” Lemon admitted. “I want to start with what happened at the White House here today, I want to lay it all out for you, without editorializing. I want you to see it for yourself, facts first.”
Lemon played a clip of Trump at the event, where he told Native American veterans, “You were here long before any of us were here although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago—they call her Pocahontas.”
Lemon reminded his viewers of the countless thoughtless and racist comments Trump has made in the past to people of color. Afterwards, he played a video of Trump claiming he’s the “least racists person anyone has ever met”.
Afterward, Lemon delivered a startling bomb of reality on Trump: “Here’s what everyone should know,” Lemon said. “Just because you say you’re not racist doesn’t make it so. Especially if you say, do and defend racist behavior over, and over, and over again. Especially if you have lost your credibility by telling countless lies, big and small.”
