CNN host Don Lemon has been getting woke on folks in regards to Cheeto-In-Chief, President Donald Trump. In a letter to the former business mogul read during CNN Tonight‘s Monday (Oct. 23) broadcast, Lemon found himself getting wrecked with emotions as the president’s words towards the widow of slain soldier Sgt. La David Johnson formed the centerpiece of the moment.

The Hill reports:

CNN anchor Don Lemon broke down in tears while reading an open letter he wrote to President Trump and Gold Star widow Myeshia Johnson, who lost her husband during an ambush in Niger on Oct. 4.

The open letter from Lemon comes after Johnson told ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Monday that she was “very angry” about the president’s condolence phone call and was particularly upset because she claimed he struggled to “remember my husband’s name.”

Trump responded almost immediately after the interview on Twitter, stating he “had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, and spoke his name from beginning, without hesitation!”

Lemon responded Monday night at the top of the CNN program he anchors, “CNN Tonight.”
