    16 CNN’s Don Lemon says he wouldn’t have shaken Trump’s hand at Bush funeral (TNB)

    CNN’s Don Lemon says he wouldn’t have shaken Trump’s hand at Bush funeral
    Joseph Wulfsohn
    4-5 minutes

    CNN’s Don Lemon was all-in with his anti-Trump rhetoric Wednesday night, saying he wouldn’t shake the president’s hand and bashing him for removing his coat.

    Lemon gave his take on the widely discussed arrival of the Trumps at George H.W. Bush’s funeral with his colleague Chris Cuomo — when the current president shook hands with the Obamas while Hillary Clinton didn’t offer him a glance.

    “I’ve got to tell you, I’m just being honest, the Obamas are really classy folks because I don’t know if I could be,” Lemon began. “I don’t think I would’ve shake hands with him. I would just — no, couldn’t do it. I’m not that big of a person. I would hope that I would be, but I don’t -- I can’t fake the funk, as they say. And I’m not saying that the Obamas did that.”

    Cuomo replied, “I don’t think it’s about faking the funk. I think it’s about showing respect for something bigger than them.”

    Lemon shot back, asking why The Obamas should show respect the Trumps when they don’t do the same.

    “They showed respect for the office. The way they conducted themselves in office. No scandal. There was no trash. There was no affair. They showed the ultimate respect for the office. They do not have to show respect for someone who does not respect them. Someone who tweets out pictures of them behind bars,” Lemon said. “You don’t have to show respect for that kind of person.”

    Lemon then demonstrated what he “would have done” at the H.W. Bush’s funeral with a member of the TV crew. When the staffer reached for Lemon’s hand, the CNN host just gave a gentle nod.

    “You’re petty and small,” Cuomo reacted.

    “I’m not petty and small,” Lemon responded. “That’s real, brother. That’s real.”

    Cuomo quipped, “Real petty and small!”

    “This is not about ideology. This is about the way someone conducts himself,” Lemon continued. “If you constantly called me names and you were rude to me and you did petty little- -- why should I have to show you respect at all?”

    Cuomo conceded that Trump’s “aspersions” on Obama were meant to “dehumanize him” and to “play to bigotries,” citing his birtherism push.

    “And you want me to shake your hand? S---,” Lemon muttered under his breath before laughing. “I’m just real. I tell you how it is. I’ll smile at you but I don’t have to.”

    Later in the evening, Lemon ripped Trump for removing his coat when he arrived at the funeral, calling it a “strange moment” when the president removed his coat and handed it to a uniformed soldier before sitting down.

    “Listen, I don’t know how big a deal it is. It just struck me as awkward,” Lemon said. “Why did he do it?”

    “What was he doing with his coat on?” Washington Post contributor Sally Quinn – who was a guest on the show -- asked. “He came in a limo. He should have left the coat in the limo. You know, he obviously has a staff and the staff tells him what to do and then he goes rogue. And I can’t imagine that somebody didn’t say, you know, ‘You want to leave your coat in the car, sir?’”

    Lemon, like Obama and the Clintons, was the subject of attacks from the current president. Back in August, Trump tweeted that Lemon was the “dumbest man on television.” And during the election, the then-candidate also called him a “lightweight” on Twitter and that he was “dumb as a rock.”

    Would someone please let me know how we have spun out of control?
    Has the captain let go of the wheel?
    Or could we please try to find a way to be a bit more kind?

    For the record...

    I would not shake Lemon's hand at a funeral or any other place.

    (...and I am president of nothing)

    Can I get a witness?

    And Lemon thinks there was no scandal or trash in the Obama administration? How about treason for starters by instigating a soft coup against a duly elected President?
    What is the lake of fire? What is it's purpose? Is the lake of fire eternal hell? Is there any hope of escape for those cast into this lake?

    Why in the hell would anyone want to shake the Lemon's hand anyway. Except maybe for Hillary for all that ass kissing he did.

    in regard to this coat BS - WTF??? >>>> if you don't remember - early on in Obammy's reign of terror he had some outdoor signing or speech or some damn thing - Obammy had to have a uniformed Marine stand over him with a freaking umbrella - that's something to talk about as far as I'm concerned - where's his f____ing staff member?????

    Lemon wouldn't shake Trump's hand, but Lemon desperately wanted the chance to refuse. That's what hurts him most now - he didn't get the chance to sneer face to face.

    And all his statement does is prove he is both rude and a boor.

    But we knew he had had a poor upbringing as far as manners were concerned already.

    Haven't seen POTUS ripping off his coat yet. But I wouldn't be surprised to learn it's kevlar or some sort of armor lined (heavy, warm) for additional protection and they made him wear it from the limo into the building.

    Maybe just wishful thinking on my part.

    100% correct - all those dignitaries have bulletproof outerwear - POTUS wears the coat going to & fro to Airforce One - any outdoor events that leave that long range shot possible - the SS indicates when it's OK ....

    I once refused to shake Jeb Bushs' hand when he was governor. I was eating and didn't want to soil my hands.

    Did he say “please shake my hand”

    As far as Don Lululemon goes, it's doubtful he'll ever be at a funeral for a former President, where he'd be in a position to shake the current presidents hand. Let alone refuse to shake it.
    Myself, I'd hug President Trump if I could.

    What does shaking Don Lemon's hand get you?
    What does shaking the hand of the President of the United States get you?
    You see, Don Lemon is merely a TV personality. A talking head. The equivalent of zip, nada, nothing.
    He is a minion.
    And that has nothing to do with his political leanings

    Well, if I were one of them I would not shake hands with the other either. Why play Niceties?

    Hell, I would not have gone to the funueral nor made it a National Month of Wasting Time-stick his ass in the ground and be done with it.

    As far as Don Lemon-I thought he was some sitcom star or something from the 60's or so. I guess he must be someone who has some importance to others but I really can't picture who he is nor do I care.

    No, he walked up to me and stuck his hand out. I just looked at it and walked away.

    I don't know who Don Lemon is. That's probably because I don't watch CNN AT ALL!. Here's a quote that I dug up on Wikipedia that's from Lemon, "In October 2018, Lemon stated on-air: "So, we have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right. And we have to start doing something about them. There is no travel ban on them. There is no ban on — they had the Muslim ban. There is no white guy ban. So, what do we do about that?""

    It may well be past time to pick up the tools and get to work.
