Apparently Donald Trump (or most any other conservative political candidate) can say anything, or be as offensive as they want because - Monica Lewinsky! CNN's Don Lemon had on a Trump supporter and conservative commentator Kurt Schlichter to discuss Donald Trump's offensive "bathroom" attacks directed towards Hillary Clinton, and the segment blew up in Lemon's face. It got so bad that Lemon finally had enough and instructed CNN to cut off Kurt's mic before he ended the segment.

Lemon was trying to get these two knuckleheads to get honest about Trump's vulgarity, but all Schlichter could whine on about was who cares what Trump does or says because Bill Clinton was a sexual harasser and abuser.

Yeah, he continually went there.

CNN’s Don Lemon abruptly ended an interview with conservative commentator Kurt Schlichter after the conversation veered from Donald Trump‘s recent comments about Hillary Clinton‘s bathroom use to a heated back-and-forth about President Bill Clinton‘s sexual trysts.

Discussing Trump’s assertion that it’s “too disgusting” to talk about where Clinton disappeared to during Saturday’s Democratic debate, Schlichter insisted he couldn’t care less about the outrage surrounding Trump’s comment.

“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,” Schlichter said referring to President Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky. “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.” Schlichter went on to say the backlash over Trump’s comments is “hypocritical pearl-clutching nonsense.”

“I just think it’s silly,” Schlichter later added. “Look he’s running against Hillary Clinton, he’s running against a sexual harasser and abuser’s enabler, I don’t know why we’re not talking about that.”

“Because it has nothing to do with what happened,” Lemon replied.

Schlichter continued to rant about Clinton’s connections to a “serial sexual harasser” as the conversation further derailed. Lemon attempted to silence Schlichter calling his tirade “the lowest of the low” and “a cheap shot.”

“Can we cut it off? Can we cut if off please?” Lemon asked his producers, pulling the interview. “Thank you, we’re done.”
