CNN anchor Don Lemon is blasting Donald Trump, saying the president and his words are responsible for a recent threat of violence against the network and its journalists.
On Tuesday news emerged that a 19-year-old Michigan man, Brandon Griesemer, had made 22 phone calls to CNN between Jan. 9 and 10, threatening to kill CNN journalists over “fake news.”
“There’s nothing random about this. Nothing,” said Lemon. “This is what happens when the President of the United States, Donald Trump, repeatedly attacks members of the press simply for reporting facts he does not like.”
At one point during the monologue, Lemon addressed the president directly, saying that he knew he watched the show (even though Trump has insisted he doesn’t).
