CNN anchor Don Lemon lashed out at White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, accusing her of pushing propaganda while she was critical of media.
Lemon criticized his former colleague during his Wednesday show, noting that she used to work for CNN as a paid commentator and saying that she had been happy with the network when she was getting paid to be there.

“Do you know she also worked for — girl, bye. I mean there’s no other — girl, bye. Buh-bye,” Lemon began, adding, “So much disinformation coming from the podium.”
Lemon went on to McEnany for being critical of media, specifically CNN, even though she had previously been a paid commentator there.
“It’s every day, it’s like, comes out, reads propaganda, talks about the — what the media is doing, criticizes the media, ‘This what you should be covering.’ I think we got this,” he said. “You used to sit here on the set with us. I think we got it. When you sat here with us, you thought we had it. You were happy to be here, but now we don’t know what we are doing? Girl, bye.”
Lemon concluded by pointing out the number of court cases President Donald Trump had lost to date in his efforts to challenge the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.
“So much losing. So why do they do it? Why do they act like they are living in an alternate reality and universe? You know what they say, follow the money,” he said.
