CNN’s Don Lemon said Wednesday night that he would have snubbed President Donald Trump at former President George H.W. Bush’s funeral if he was former President Barack Obama. Chris Cuomo, whose show airs immediately before Lemon’s, condemned those remarks.

“Nope, couldn’t do it. I’m not that big a person. I would hope that I would be, but I don’t — I can’t fake the funk as they say. I’m not saying the Obamas did that, but there they go, right there,” Lemon stated.

“I don’t think it’s about faking the funk. I think it’s about showing respect for something bigger than them,” Cuomo responded.

“Why would they do it when he doesn’t? But I understand what you’re saying,” Lemon followed up. “What are you talking about, Chris? They showed respect for the office the way they conducted themselves in office.”

As Trump and Melania entered the National Cathedral to honor the late president, both of them shook hands and exchanged pleasantries with the 44th president and former first lady Michelle Obama.

He added, “No scandal. There was no trash. There was no affair.”

“They showed the ultimate respect for the office. They do not have to show respect for someone who does not respect them, someone who tweets out pictures of them behind bars. You don’t have to show respect for that kind of person. Let me show you what I would have done,” Lemon continued.

Lemon then called over someone who works on the show, and the camera panned out to show a man approaching Lemon. The man reached his hand out for a handshake, and Lemon promptly turned his back to him.

“You’re petty and small,” Cuomo interjected.

Lemon answered, “I’m not petty and small. That’s real, brother. That’s real.”

      For sure, Lemon is a petty little man. Why does he not acknowledge all the scandals of the Obama administration? You can’t just sweep them under the rug. Soldiers died!!!! Laws were broken.

    Another man child. An embarrassment to his parents, or elders with an ounce of decency and respect.

    It wasn’t about Trump/Obama.
    It was about respect for Bush family. Period. I don’t really care who shook hands with whom.

    This creepy lemon is a hateful, mean-spirited, racist who shows himself to be small minded on a daily basis.
    Not worth my time.

    Lemon just proved how biased the media truly are. He is such a racist little twerp. He, Joe and Mika are revolting with their sneering stupid looking faces, trying to be so all knowing. They are children that haven’t learn how to conduct themselves on a world stage with “reporting” events in the nation. The sad thing about all this, they are given platform in which to keep spewing disrespect, hatred and division not only to our President but to the country. They want to talk divisiveness by Trump, they need to look in the mirror. We could all take a page out of our 41st President’s book, the way he conducted hisself and the way he raised his children to respect whoever is in office of the President. Lemon could really benefit from studying the Bush family and quit living as if he was on a plantation back in the 1800’s.

    This is simple people. Lemon is not able to respect because he has no self respect. That has to come first.

    The Media is guilty for the division in this country. Cuomo took a giant step toward
    stopping this divisiveness by calling that hate monger Lemon out for his ignorant comment.

    The Obamas and Clintons showed Democrat utter hatred in the way they reacted to the President and Melania coming in. And this, whatever it is on CNN, is even worse than they are. The leftists often say that the GOP are nothing but haters and bigots, but they are the ones that fit the definition of those words.

    I turn on CNN to hear the “news”. But it is a HUGE turn off to hear the OPINION of Don Lemmon. His dumb one sided opinion means ZERO to me and in fact, it lets me know that CNNN as a whole is lopsided in their news. Im not here for LEFT LEANING OPINIONS. I used to like Don Lemmon but now he has simply morphed into … Mr Petty McPetty.

      I agree…He is worthless to the american people…he needs to be replaced…what we want is a two sided news channel…not so lop sided and full of hate…CNN will be gone some day for what they have done. There is a new channel coming that is gonna blow them out of the game…It is too bad but they have done it to them selves….Once the indictments put 154 high level operatives behind bars…the country will then have all the truth and CNN will die for the lie…truth could still set them free but it may be too late..Coumo, Lemmon and the rest of them have put on an act that cant be set free from the disease it created upon itself…2 years from now it will be a better world of news…and wait till you hear will be leading the way…10 faces of this nation that will set a tone that will be easy listening. Good by CNN…you thought money could save you….sorry…your only savior is the people..that have no money..you should have followed a heart and not a wallet…
