After Trump Attacked Him, Don Lemon Lays Bare the President's Racism

After Trump Attacked Him, Don Lemon Lays Bare the President's Racism

The out journalist made clear that Trump derides people of color and uses that hatred to fuel his base's devotion.

Instead of focusing on governing the country, President Trump spent precious time last week tweeting out grudges against his enemies -- namely Robert Mueller, Hillary Clinton, and, oddly, basketball superstar LeBron James.

James gave an interview to out CNN journalist Don Lemon, where the future Los Angeles Lakers player discussed his school for at-risk children. James discussed the country's roiling race problem, and said it was fueled by the president. Trump, who claims to never watch CNN, exploded in anger and attacked both African-American men on Twitter.

Lemon is a frequent target of Trump, who repeatedly calls him "dumb" for no apparent reason. Lemon, an author and college graduate, responded to Trump's invective. But Lemon refused to make it about himself.

The journalist reminded the public how Trump has attacked other prominent African-Americans, including Congresswoman Maxine Waters, who Trump calls a "low IQ individual." That's the tip of the iceberg, Lemon points out, explaining how there should never be any more discussion over whether Trump is racist; he is, and he's using it to his advantage.
