Donald Trump Is Demanding An Apology. Don Lemon Has The Perfect Response.




 

President Donald Trump demanded an apology from ESPN after the network's Jemele Hill called him a "white supremacist." But CNN anchor Don Lemon told TMZ Sports that Trump ought to rethink that:

Earlier this month, Hill tweeted that Trump was "a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists."

The tweet not only inspired the president's demand for an apology, it also prompted the White House to ask the network to fire Hill for "one of the more outrageous comments that anyone could make."

As Lemon noted, Trump was a leading voice in the racist "birther" movement, which falsely claimed Obama was not born in this country and not eligible to be president.

Trump has never apologized for that position.
