Don Lemon had some strong words for the POTUS following his Christmas antics and slammed him for lying to the troops.

Lemon was outraged by trump's recent visit to the military in Iraq amid chaos in Washington.

“I tried not to because I was with my family, but when we turned on CNN and we saw the president politicizing a Christmas message, it was like– we kept saying, ‘He’s like the Grinch.’ I’m being honest,” Lemon said on “CNN Tonight.”

“Instead of being positive with the troops, saying, ‘This is about the troops, it’s not about me. I’m here to thank you for your service,’ whatever, even if reporters ask him questions. ‘This is not about me. This is about the troops, they serve out country well.’ Maybe he should have said, ‘It’s unfortunate that some of them are not getting paid and I wish they were. We’ll come to an agreement and make sure everyone gets paid, the 42,000 members of the Coast Guard who are not getting paid. So, you know, let’s be positive about Christmas.’ The same thing during Christmas. It was so negative and so — you want positivity when it comes to Christmas. It is perplexing. Why would he visit the troops and do that?”

Trump is still blaming the Dems for the current government shutdown and seems to be trying every trick in the book to get as many people as he can on side, even if that means not telling the complete truth.
