After President Donald Trump's impassioned Make America Great Again rally in Phoenix, Arizona, CNN anchor Don Lemon was both at a loss for words and not so.

“Well, what do you say to that,” Lemon began immediately after the rally ended. “I'm just going to speak from the heart here.”

From there, Lemon claimed that what the American people had just witnessed was a “total eclipse of the facts.”

Topical puns aside, he continued by saying that Trump “lied directly to the American people” and that he willingly omitted facts “in an attempt to rewrite history, especially when it comes to Charlottesville.”

“He's unhinged,” Lemon said, calmly and plaintively. He also opined that it was an embarrassing moment, and not for CNN, who the president had gone after at length during the rally. He continued by claiming that Trump was acting “so petty that he has to go after people he deems to be his enemy, like an imaginary friend of a 6-year-old.”

“His speech was without thought, without reason, devoid of facts, devoid of wisdom. There was no gravitas, no sanity,” Lemon said.

From there, Lemon kept on with his monologue, saying that he felt as though Trump's speech were delivered as though he were “a man backed into a corner [...] by circumstances he couldn't control.”

“This is petty,” he said, before throwing to his panel for the rest of the evening. “A person who's supposed to pull the country together? Certainly didn't happen there.”

@Droid(48 likes)DL is not a journalist, not a newscaster, not a reporter. He is more like a blogger with a microphone. He is similar to the domestic terrorist and card carrying Marxist/Communist, Van Jones. They hate America, and they use their microphone to cleverly trick the American public. As Mark Twain famously wrote, "It's eaiser to fool someone, than to convince them they have been fooled" ..................... Obama, perhaps the ultimate anti-American crusader, enlisted other radicals like Jonathan Gruber to write the guts of Obamacare, which is nothing more than a government takeover of our very lives, a massive tax law, and as Michelle Bachman said, "the crown jewel of socialiasm". Gruber famously said on live broadcast, ".... we had to lie about it, we had to get it passed ..... call it the stupidity of the American voter". So, hell yes, Obama, Reid, Pelosi, and all the rest of them; they all deceived us, they all lied to us, and that was much easier than convincing "us" that we have been lied to. Obamacare is the tip of the iceberg; Obama, Reid, Pelosi and the rest of their political machine instituted radical changes that are completely anti-American. Don Lemon perpetuates these lies and the very same anti-American political agenda. Trump is not the least bit afraid to take them all head-on. Kudos to the ultimate anti-establishment President; the billionaire at age 70 who could live a very private life of extreme wealth, but choses to fight against this wave of anti-American activism that is being glorified by traitors like Don Lemon.

IntegrityImportant(34 likes)@Droid, your post is on point. Don Lemon and all the other asses in the biased media are indeed traitors. They do not want America united. If they did, they would be truthful rather than rave and rant hour after hour after hour about two scoops of ice cream. Yes, Don Lemon, while you criticize, we look at you and see those two scoops of ice cream that you harped on for days. Truth is, it wouldn't matter what words POTUS chooses to use criticizing white supremists, the media Don Lemons wll criticize him regardless. At least after the Phoenix speech tonight Fox coverd Antifa who of course showed up but were smoke bombed into behaving :)) I doubt anyone else even mentioned them. Kudos to the Phoenix dem mayor who allowed the police to do their jobs. Of course Phoenix is a conservative state so perhaps dems there are not of the Maxine the Mouth and Weepy Schumer variety. The article said tear gas was used. If so, it was way after the bulk of the crowd dispersed. The police was using SMOKE bombs when coverage ended. Another UNCHECKED item going out there . . .
