On Sunday night, CNN’s Don Lemon launched into a bitter, anti-Trump attack, suggesting the Commander of Chief of letting President Barack Obama get under his skin because he is “better educated” and has a “better looking” and “more accomplished” wife.

CNN bills Lemon as an “anchor,” as opposed to an opinion host or pundit. Lemon even moderated a Democratic presidential primary debate last summer, a gig that is historically reserved for straight-news journalists, Fox News reported.

“What is it about President Obama that really gets under your skin? Is it because he’s smarter than you? Better educated? Made it on his own? Didn’t need daddy’s help? Wife is more accomplished? Better looking?” Don Lemon asked.

“I don’t know, what is it? What is it about him? That he’s a black man that’s accomplished being president? That he punked you on the whole birth certificate thing? What is it about him? Just wondering,” Lemon then said, as if President Trump himself was watching CNN.

Lemon — who Trump often calls “the dumbest man on television” – attacks the president on a regular basis. He once compared Trump to Adolf Hitler, then claimed he “didn’t mean” to compare the president and Nazi leader. Lemon has also called Trump a “racist,” a “fraud,” “con man,” questioned whether or not the State of the Union should air on a delay to avoid “propaganda,” declared that he wouldn’t shake the president’s hand and questioned Trump’s mental fitness, as reported by Fox News.

He also burst out laughing when a guest mocked President Trump supporters earlier this year. Video Below
