CNN’s Don Lemon recently offered another perfect example of why so many people no longer trust or like CNN. After the passage of a historic tax cut which will help 80 percent of Americans, all Lemon had was mockery.
Here’s a partial transcript of the clip below from Truth Revolt:
LEMON: There was a festival of flattery on the White House lawn today to celebrate the passage of the Republican tax cut bill.
HOUSE SPEAKER PAUL RYAN: Something this big, something this generational, something this profound could not have been done without exquisite presidential leadership. Mr. President, thank you for getting us over the finish line.
REP. DIANE BLACK: Thank you, President Trump, for allowing us to have you as our president and to make America great again.
SEN. ORRIN HATCH: You’re one heck of a leader, and we’re all benefiting from it. This bill could not have passed without you.
VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE: President Donald Trump delivered a great victory for the American people.
LEMON: My God. Is that SNL? Is that real? Complimenting President Trump has become something of a ritual at the White House, but have other presidents expected such praise? Let’s discuss now with CNN presidential historians Timothy Naftali and Douglas Brinkley. I mean, listen, you (Laughs) — what is going on here?! By the way, you gentlemen look so handsome. You’re such fantastic historians. I am just honored to be on television with you.

What an elitist snob.
