CNN’s Don Lemon had an on-air meltdown following President Trump’s campaign-style rally in Phoenix, Arizona on Tuesday night, shamelessly calling the President “unhinged,” “without reason,” “embarrassing” and questioning the President’s fitness for office.
Lemon lashed-out at the Commander-in-Chief within seconds of the closing lines of the President’s speech, asking the audience, “What do you say to that?”
“I’m just going to speak from the heart here,” said Lemon. “What we have witnessed was a total eclipse of the facts. Someone who came out on stage and lied directly to the American people.”
“He’s unhinged, it’s embarrassing,” he added.
“This is who we elected President of the United States? A man who is so petty that he has to go after people who he deems to be his enemy like an imaginary friend of a six-year old. His speech was without thought, it was without reason, it was devoid of facts, it was devoid of wisdom, there was no gravitas, there was no sanity there, he was like a child blaming a sibling on something else,” said the CNN host.
“He certainly opened up the race wound from Charlottesville. A man clearly wounded by the rational people who are abandoning him in droves; meaning those business people and the people in Washington now who are questioning his fitness for office, and whether he is stable,” said Lemon.
“A man backed into a corner it seems by circumstances beyond his control and beyond his understanding. That’s the truth,” he added.
