CNN host Don Lemon spent another segment of his show ranting about President Trump. On Sunday evening, he lashed out at the president for his supposed obsession with President Obama, before suggesting the sources of that obsession.
"Is it because he's smarter than you?" Lemon asked. "Better educated? Made it on his own? Didn't need daddy's help?"
Lemon went on to suggest maybe it's because Obama "punked him" on the whole birther controversy. The first wives weren't off limits, apparently. In his diatribe, the CNN host suggested that another reason Trump is irked by his predecessor is because Michelle Obama is more accomplished than Melania Trump.
"Wife is more accomplished?" Lemon mused. "Better looking? I don't know, what is it?"
A lot of viewers had some opinions about Lemon's form of "journalism."

This is @CNN’s Don Lemon. Watch this and try to tell me he’s objective. He’s not. He’s also incredibly disrespectful to our First Lady in the clip.— Robby Starbuck (@robbystarbuck) May 4, 2020
This is CNN. The fakest name in news. pic.twitter.com/5UlTEDRsfn
Perhaps Trump is a little uneasy about Obama because he left with him a disastrous foreign policy that he swiftly undid. Obama also once scoffed that Trump would "never" be president. Those sounds like plenty of justifiable grievances to me.
Finally, after his extended rant, Lemon had some people wondering who exactly is the obsessed party.
Don Lemon asked why Trump is “so obsessed with Obama” on his show, where he’s ranted about Trump... every night... for the past 4 years...— JT Lewis (@thejtlewis) May 4, 2020
