Don Lemon Rips Ex-Trump Officials for Trying to Sell Books on CNN After Talking 'Crap' About Network
CNN’s Don Lemon is taking issue with individuals who worked for former President Donald Trump appearing on his network to advertise their new books after attacking the outlet.
On Tuesday night, Lemon said, “Every day, ‘the fake news CNN.’ Now they want to come on CNN. Why do you want to come on CNN to sell a book when all you did was talk crap about CNN? Huh? Or any other network.”
“Go on the Fox propaganda network and sell your book,” he added.

Lemon’s comments come as former Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham penned a new memoir titled “I’ll Take Your Questions Now: What I Saw at the Trump White House,” in which she shares unsavory stories about her time working in the Trump White House.
On Tuesday, she appeared on CNN and co-host John Berman asked the former press secretary if her comments about her former boss are a sign of genuine regret or just meant to boost sales of her book.
He asked, “Now you are saying you regret it, but the question is, are you saying you regret it to sell books? Do you really feel bad? If you had to do it all over again, would you do it differently?”
“If I had to do it over again, I wouldn’t do it. I wouldn’t have been there. But, obviously, hindsight is 2020,” Grisham responded. “Obviously, I want to sell books, but I want to sell books so that people can read the entire story and see the context.”
She added, “And again, I was a loyalist, and I was a believer, and I defended them fiercely. And if I can convince five or six other people who were like me that this is not natural and this is not normal, and this is a cult-like environment, and if you can just step out and clear your head, maybe I can change things.”
