Skip to comments.Chris Cuomo Calls Fellow CNN Anchor 'Petty and Small' for His Comments About Trump at Bush Funeral

Trump and first lady Melania Trump took their place in the front row at President George H. W. Bush's funeral at National Cathedral yesterday morning, right next to the Obamas. It was a bit awkward considering the past war of words between the two couples. Trump has accused Obama of authoring some of the worst deals the U.S. has ever signed and is currently upending his predecessor's legacy, while Obama has sounded off on Trump's policies. Meanwhile, Michelle Obama wrote some unflattering things about 45 in her new book, including how she'll never forgive him for his role in the "birther" controversy about her husband.
But, the two couples didn't let that context prevent them from being cordial to each other. The Obamas shook the Trumps' hands and Michelle Obama told the president, "good morning."
To CNN's Don Lemon, that was more than he would have done. If he was Obama, he would not have offered his hand to Trump.
"You don't have to show respect for that kind of person," Lemon said.
His disdain for President Trump was even too much for his CNN coanchors to handle.
Chris Cuomo, on the other side of the screen, chided Lemon.
"This is not about ideology, this is about the way someone conducts themselves," Lemon insisted.
To expand on what Cuomo was getting at, perhaps Lemon should withhold his contempt for Trump until after we say our goodbyes to the late President Bush.
Lemon’s days are numbered at CNN..................
Lemon would lose an argument with a glass of water.
I always felt those two were the bottom of the barrel. Looks like it’s no longer a tie. Lemon is lower than Cuomo.
Lemon the racist is the lowest of the low.
This. The worst part of a race to the bottom is winning.
Plus he is a fag, Jim.
All the men who have seen Lemon naked have said the same thing..petty and SMALL
Behaving in a civil manner doesn’t cost you anything with your supporters and may improve your perception with your enemies. Both Obama and Trump know this.
Lemon is just a stupid man. Not smart. Dumb, in fact.
Let's Wrap This Baby Up, Folks!
Well said! So true.
I don’t have many enemies left, but when I’m at a funeral I show respect to all parties involved.
And no, I did go Kaiser Soze on anyone.
[Plus he is a fag, Jim.]
LOL. For sure.
You would think a gal like Lemon who openly hates whitey would look for a black fag instead.
He is REALLY stupid-—thought that MH370 might have disappeared into a black hole.
