Donald Trump sounds desperate to distract observers from the serious legal issues he is facing.
At nearly 3 o’clock in the morning on the East Coast this Tuesday, Trump took to Truth Social to make a big deal — like, a hugely massive deal — out of an otherwise less interesting personnel reshuffling at CNN, Trump’s eternal foe. “A small step for television, a giant step for mankind,” the ex-president bellowed. “Don Lemon, often called “the dumbest man on television” having made even Lebron James look smart during their interview two years ago, has been FIRED from his prime time evening spot on CNN – extremely low ratings – and will be thrown into their “Death Valley” morning show. I assume this means a BIG salary cut prior to his Complete & Total future firing from Ratings Challenged (to put it mildly!) CNN. Good luck Don, you’ll need it! MAGA!!!” It’s extremely conspicuous that Trump calls these Black public figures “dumb” or some variation of the same. He doesn’t use that description for everyone. Racism much?
Why is Trump so interested in Lemon’s salary, anyway? Is this really the guy who most Republicans would go with in the next presidential election season if he runs again? Biden is pursuing items on the agenda like economic progress amid a challenging global environment. Trump is whining online. Big difference. Hours after Donald’s middle-of-the-night rant against Lemon, he added to it: “They call me a “ratings machine,”” he insisted. “Don Lemon was also a ratings machine – in reverse. He killed ratings, ate them alive, and always will. If he interviewed Elvis, back from the dead, nobody would watch. Add him to the list of Joe Scarborough and his lovely, soothing bride. They are in the “can” also, but now can compete against “the dumbest man on television.” Should help them a lot!!!” Who calls you a “ratings machine,” Donald? The goblins in the walls at Mar-a-Lago? Your children who the world pretty much thinks you never talk to and can barely be bothered with? Trump recently claimed the U.S. was becoming a global laughingstock under Biden. It’s the Trump era when global opinions of the U.S. hit new lows.
