It's not easy keeping a straight face while watching Trump sycophants, but CNN’s Don Lemon really tried.
But really, when was the last time we saw so many fluffers lined up on a news channel? Paul Ryan praised Trump's “exquisite" presidential leadership, while Yertle the Turtle McConnell cheered Trump's year of "extraordinary" accomplishment
“There was a festival of flattery on the White House lawn today to celebrate the passage of the Republican tax cut bill,” Lemon said
“Oh my God, is that ‘SNL’? Is that real? Complimenting President Trump has become something of a ritual at the White House, but have other presidents expected such praise?”
Presidential historians Timothy Natale and Douglas Brinkley were guests, but Lemon couldn't stop laughing.
“Listen, you—what is going on here?!” Lemon asked. “By the way, you gentlemen look so handsome. You’re such fantastic historians. I am just honored to be on television with you.”
