However, host Don Lemon briefly lashed out at people who called him out, spreading lies that critics should “know better” and not make “a political point” by saying Trump’s sanity is being questioned.
“Yeah and I think that, you know, when — when people criticize and say, oh, they are questioning the President’s sanity and all that, they know better. They’re just — they’re doing it just, you know, just because to make a political point of some sort,” Lemon whined in a segment with faux Republican Mike Murphy and The Atlantic’s James Fallows.
As a reminder, here’s a small snippet of what Lemon said about Trump on Tuesday:
He’s unhinged, it’s embarrassing and I don’t mean for us, the media because he went after us, but for the country. 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. He was like a child blaming a sibling on something else….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. A man backed into a corner it seems by circumstances beyond his control and beyond his understanding….This petty, this small, a person who’s supposed to pull the country together?
Murphy was supposed to be Lemon’s Yes Man, but he didn’t go along as he argued that he doesn’t “believe the crazy Trump theory” but rather he’s just “a narcissist” with “an impulse control problem.”
