The same day Zucker defends airing Trump’s coronavirus presser, Don Lemon eviscerates the practice on air

Last night on CNN Tonight, Don Lemon absolutely tore into CNN president Jeff Zucker’s editorial decision to air President Trump’s coronavirus press conferences. In a call on Monday, Zucker defended the practice, saying CNN is “going to continue to carry those briefings.”

Lemon, however, attacked the policy at the top of his 10pm show.

“I don’t think that you should really listen to what he says, you should listen to what the experts say,” he said bluntly to colleague Chris Cuomo during the anchor hand-off.

“I’m not actually sure, if you want to be honest, that we should carry that live. I think we should run snippets. I think we should do it afterwards and get the pertinent points to the American people because he’s never, ever going to tell you the truth.”

He later remarked the press conferences have become the president’s new Apprentice.

  1. If Don Lemon is tired of listening to nonsense I suggest he stay silent.He claims to be factual while he solely talks about his emotions. Don,you are no journalist,you are a talking bitch.

  2. Don Lemon is really the voice of the people – keep it up Don. Not just what he said about Zucker but actually what he should have said about ALL networks! What he says though about trump (lower case on purpose) every day – his words are my thoughts exactly!!!!
