CNN responded on Monday to President Donald Trump’s criticism of its anchor, Don Lemon, accusing the president of setting a bad example for children.

“In a world where bullies torment kids on social media to a devastating effect on a regular basis with insults and name-calling, it is sad to see our president engaging in the very same behavior himself,” a CNN spokesperson said in a statement to Breitbart News. “Leaders should lead by example.”

The president wrote on Twitter Monday morning that reports that he watched Lemon’s show were false.

“I never watch Don Lemon, who I once called the ‘dumbest man on television!’ Bad Reporting,” Trump wrote.
