It’s no secret that President Donald Trump harbors a pathological obsession with his predecessor, Barack Obama.
Beginning with his racist campaign to prove the Obama wasn’t born in America and then manifesting in the Oval Office as an unrelenting crusade to undo every accomplishment and improvement our first black president introduced to our nation, Trump has made it clear that he sees Obama’s tenure as an abhorrent stain on our nation’s history — which ironically is how most Americans see Trump’s administration.
CNN anchor Don Lemon called out the President on his show last night after Trump used his Twitter account to retweet a conspiracy theory about Obama.
Lemon, who is regularly referred to as the “dumbest man on television” by Trump, directly addressed the president with a scathing soliloquy that is certain to provoke yet another round of Twitter abuse from Trump and his rabid fans:
“What is it about President Obama that really gets under your skin? Is it because he’s smarter than you? Better educated? Made it on his own—didn’t need Daddy’s help? Wife is more accomplished? Better looking? I don’t know, what is it, what is it about him? That he’s a black man that’s accomplished being president? That he punked you on the whole birth certificate thing? What is it about him? Just wondering.”
