Tuesday on CNN while discussing Republican candidate Donald Trump saying it is “too disgusting” to talk about Hillary Clinton’s bathroom break during Saturday’s debate, a visibly angry Don Lemon ended an interview with conservative commentator Kurt Schlichter for bringing up President Bill Clinton’s sexual indiscretions.
When asked about Trump’s comments Schlichter said, “Don, it’s gonna take a lot more for me to get upset at a woman who enabled a guy who turned the Oval Office into a frat house and his intern into a humidor. You know, I just don’t care. I so don’t care. I would need Stephen Hawking to find the theoretical limit of how little I care about Donald Trump’s silly jokes. This is hypocritical pearl-clutching nonsense that Donald Trump is vulgar and mean.”
Host Don Lemon tried unsuccessfully to stop his guest from bring up the former president as Schlichter continued by saying, “I don’t think it’s unfair, I just think it’s silly. He’s running against Hillary Clinton. He running against a sexual harasser and an abuser’s enabler. I don’t know why we’re not talking about that.”
Lemon responded, “You are talking about something that happened over a decade ago. The man has been impeached for it. She’s not responsible for her husband’s actions. Yet you’re bringing it into a campaign and it doesn’t seem fair. What if you did the same thing with Donald Trump from something his spouse or father or someone else did from his family. It has nothing to do with him running for president. We’re talking about his own actions, his own individual merit. So bring Hillary Clinton’s actions into it. Don’t bring the her husband’s actions into it.”
When Schlichter continued attacking Bill Clinton as a “serial sexual abuser,” Lemon interpreted saying “Stop Stop Stop Stop…It is not fair. It is a low blow. It is the lowest of the low. And it has nothing to do with Hillary Clinton.”
Lemon added, “Can we cut it off? Can we cut if off please? Can we end this?” adding, “Thank you, we’re done.”
