CNN anchor directly addresses Trump and asks why he is so obsessed with Obama

CNN anchor Don Lemon has laid into Donald Trump and his never-ending obsession with his predecessor in the White House, Barack Obama.

Lemon, who doesn't mince his words on his show , attacked the president for sharing a baseless conspiracy theory that Obama was somehow behind the so-called "Russian hoax".

In a completely unprecedented moment, Lemon addressed the president directly and asked him what is up with his fascination with Obama, touching on racism, their respective wives, their parents or even their opposing looks.

This is what he said:

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? 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.

Just before this, Lemon also praised George W Bush who called for non-partisan politics to emerge in Washington DC during the coronavirus which was a noble thing to do. What did Trump do in response? Moan about Bush's comments during the impeachment trial.
