(PresidentialDaily.org)- As Trump renewed his promise of “death and destruction” if he is detained, CNN anchor Don Lemon tore into Trump for his “racist” words.
As #45 said, there would be “possible murder and destruction” if Trump is prosecuted and jailed; Don Lemon had had enough and accused the ex-president of making racist statements towards Black people.
Trump has been stoking fears that he may be indicted and arrested due to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s probe into hush money payments to Stormy Daniels.
Following many warnings, Trump finally threatened “death and devastation” if he was ever indicted in a late-night social media post.
The CNN hosts, co-anchor Poppy Harlow and fellow CNN anchor Abby Phillip, addressed the threat and his use of the term “animal” to characterize African-American prosecutors like Bragg and New York Attorney General Letitia James on Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN This Morning:
Phillip, a Black journalist, sided with Lemon. The CNN personality, who claims to have followed Trump for years, recently stated, “if you go back and you read his rhetoric, I mean, this all the way back to the eighties.”
She said that Trump has a long history of slurring African-Americans.
Trump was also accused of anti-Semitism.
When teachers’ union head Randi Weingarten claimed that bringing up Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s links to liberal billionaire George Soros was anti-Semitic, she got an education of her own.
Soros funded Bragg’s 2021 bid for district attorney, and Bragg is the prosecutor who has been linked to rumors that he is about to prosecute and arrest former President Donald Trump for hush money payments he made to Stormy Daniels in 2016.
On Thursday, Weingarten, however, said that anybody making this link was promoting anti-Jewish conspiracies.
Chuck Ross, in a tweet, criticized her by pointing out that Weingarten has hundreds of tweets going after Koch brothers-supported programs.
The Kochs are Jewish.
