CNN Responds To Trump’s Attack On Its Reporter, This Comeback Is Brilliant

Trump really needs to stop attacking people who are smarter than him!

Last night, Donald Trump took to Twitter to make a disgustingly racist attack on two black men after seeing an interview on CNN that upset him (even though the president insists that he doesn’t watch “Fake News” CNN).

On Friday night, CNN reporter Don Lemon showed off part of his interview with legendary NBA player LeBron James, who was promoting his amazing new school to help at-risk youth and their families. Trump was obviously overcome with jealousy and decided to lash out, insulting the intelligence of both men. Trump tweeted:

Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!”


It was truly another low moment in Trump’s presidency as America was stunned by the president’s racism and childish behavior. Fortunately, CNN had the perfect response that put Trump right in his place, reminding him how much of a fool he is. Making reference to the fiasco Trump had not too long ago when he caught First Lady Melania Trump watching CNN (when she told him she could watch “any channel she wants”), the network tweeted:

Sounds like @FLOTUS had the remote last night. 📺 We hope you both saw the incredible work of @KingJames. #BeBest

The network even used the First Lady’s #BeBest slogan to pour salt in the wound. This is a brilliant response to the man baby in the White House, and a remarkable defense of Lemon. We hope Trump will think twice before trashing the intelligence of these two incredible men again.
