CNN presenter Don Lemon cannot leave Donald Trump even after urging the rest of the media to do so.
Lemon raised his eyebrows Thursday during his appearance on CNN’s “New Day” when he begged his fellow journalists to fire the former president a bit.
“I just wonder if we are exaggerating it, if we are giving it too much voice because Donald Trump is currently the Wizard of Oz,” Lemon said. “He’s the man behind the curtain, and he really has no powerâ¦ His power comes from us, which we keep promoting and we keep talking about it – sometimes we should probably ignore a lot of it.”

Lemon touted Trump’s lack of influence between being misrepresented by social media giants and his recent removal from his own blog.
“The former President of the United States, think about it, shows up at random at people’s weddings at his property in Mar-a-Lago because that’s the only way to spread his disinformation,” Lemon exclaimed. . “Let him have it. Leave him alone.”
Hours later, however, the “Don Lemon Tonight” host didn’t leave him alone, lasting only 12 minutes before slamming the “disgraced” former president.
“A well-placed source told CNN that Trump had listened to right-wing folks like the My Pillow guy, asking advisers if he could somehow come back to the White House this year,” continues. he continues to hope he would return to power, “Lemon reported before trashing former Vice President Mike Pence during his opening monologue.” So Trump is sitting in Mar-a-Lago buzzing for know if he’s going- who cares?!? Who cares ?!?”
