On Tuesday night, Don Lemon brutally disrespected his former CNN colleague Kayleigh McEnany, who is currently the White House Press Secretary.
During his show, Lemon lost it over comments that McEnany made earlier in the day during her press briefing.
The president is still involved in ongoing litigation related to the election,” McEnany said. “Yesterday’s vote was one step in the constitutional process. I will refer you to the campaign for more on that.”
She went on to attack the media for not spending enough time on the “Hunter Biden scandal,” which was virtually ignored by all mainstream outlets until after the election.
This did not sit well with Lemon, who accused McEnany of “acting like the election did not happen” before pointing out that she once served as a conservative correspondent on CNN.
“Do you know she worked for — girl, bye,” Lemon said as he waved his hand. “Girl, bye! Buh-bye.”

Way to keep it classy, Don…
Not stopping there, Lemon only doubled down on attacking McEnany for simply doing her job.
“So much disinformation comes from the podium. It’s just every day,” he said. “It’s like [she] comes out, reads propaganda, talks about what the media is doing, criticizes the media, ‘this is what you should be covering.'”
“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’re doing?” Lemon added. “Girl, bye.”
McEnany was also attacked during this press briefing by CNN reporter Jim Acosta, who asked her, “Isn’t it hypocritical of you to accuse others of disinformation when you spread it every day?”
McEnany’s former colleagues clearly can’t stand the fact that she is rightfully calling out her former network for trying to help Joe Biden win the election by ignoring a major and legitimate scandal that involved his son. Having worked at CNN herself, perhaps McEnany knows just how corrupt the network is from the inside.
No wonder she gets under Lemon’s skin so much.
