CNN’s Don Lemon Calls Fox News ‘The Trump Channel’ [VIDEO]
CNN’s Don Lemon took a shot at Fox News on Friday, referring the network derisively as “The Trump Channel.”
Lemon and a guest panel were discussing President Obama’s remarks during an interview with David Letterman on the retired talk show host’s new Netflix show.
“If you watch Fox News you are living on a different planet than you are if you are listening to NPR,” Obama told Letterman.
Lemon followed up on Obama’s statement in a question to his panel about political polarization caused by an increasingly polarized media.
“Do you think people who are watching only, you know, The Trump Channel, they only see one thing and then people watching other networks, yeah…” Lemon said, referring to Fox.
Trump has been heavily criticized by reporters at CNN and other outlets for his Fox-heavy media diet. The Republican reportedly watches Fox & Friends each morning and often tweets in response to topics discussed on the show.
Trump recently addressed his media consumption habits while taking a shot at Lemon.
He said that he “seldom, if ever” watches CNN or MSNBC because he considers both to be “Fake News.”
“I never watch Don Lemon, who I once called the ‘dumbest man on television!’ Bad Reporting,” he wrote in a December tweet. (RELATED: ‘The Dumbest Man On Television’ — Trump Slams Don Lemon)
