During a podcast interview with Aidan McLaughlin of Mediaite, Don Lemon defended CNN’s coverage of President Trump, claiming it’s not biased.
Lemon said “This man is the president of the United States and I think it’s very easy to say that CNN is negative or is anti-Trump, because the truth is not on Trump’s side, so he attacks us and we are here to tell people the truth.” He added “I don’t really understand how people will say CNN is biased and focuses on the negative of Trump.”
Don Lemon, who is billed as an anchor, not a commentary host, recently said of Trump while talking with Anderson Cooper “He’s the biggest snowflake of them all … he’s a bigot, he’s a racist, he’s a hypocrite; those aren’t opinions, those are facts”
