CNN Trump hater, Don Lemon hit another new low Wednesday night after he said “he wouldn’t shake the president’s hand.”

This came after the Trump’s attended George H.W. Bush’s funeral, and President Trump shook hands with the Obamas while Hillary Clinton didn’t offer him a glance. (Videos Below)

While on air Wednesday night, Don Lemon showed his true colors and proved why he isn’t a journalist.

“I’ve got to tell you, I’m just being honest, the Obamas are really classy folks because I don’t know if I could be,” Lemon said. “I don’t think I would’ve shake hands with him. I would just… no, couldn’t do it. I’m not that big of a person. I would hope that I would be, but I don’t… I can’t fake the funk, as they say. And I’m not saying that the Obamas did that.”

Chris Cuomo replied, “I don’t think it’s about faking the funk. I think it’s about showing respect for something bigger than them.”

Lemon whined while asking why the Obamas should show respect for the Trumps when they don’t do the same. (Videos Below)

“They showed respect for the office. The way they conducted themselves in office. No scandal. There was no trash. There was no affair. They showed the ultimate respect for the office. They do not have to show respect for someone who does not respect them. Someone who tweets out pictures of them behind bars. You don’t have to show respect for that kind of person.” Lemon cried.

Next, Lemon demonstrated what he “would have done” at the H.W. Bush’s funeral with a member of the TV crew. When the staffer reached for Lemon’s hand, he refused. (Videos Below)

“You’re petty and small,” Cuomo shot back.

“I’m not petty and small. That’s real, brother. That’s real.” Lemon said.

Cuomo replied, “Real petty and small!”

Lemon continued, “This is not about ideology. This is about the way someone conducts himself. If you constantly called me names and you were rude to me and you did petty little…. why should I have to show you respect at all?”

Muttering under his breath, Lemon said, “And you want me to shake your hand? S***! I’m just real. I tell you how it is. I’ll smile at you, but I don’t have to.”
