CNN's Don Lemon Has a Pretty Good Idea Why Trump Is So Furiously 'Jealous' of Obama

Media

CNN anchor Don Lemon took issue with contributor Charles Blow's use of the word "inexplicable" to describe President Donald Trump's habit of blaming his failures on President Barack Obama.


"I don't think it's inexplicable," Lemon said before launching into a devastating assessment.

"You cannot buy, no matter how much money you have, you can’t buy class. President Obama, whatever you think of his politics, is a very classy man. He’s a smart man. He’s one of the kindest people you want to meet, he and his wife are," Lemon said. "I’m not talking about politics, having met them and knowing them, you can’t teach that. I think that’s something the president is jealous about. He doesn’t have those qualities.”
