President Donald Trump is back at again, this time around he is going after CNN’s Don Lemon, whom he called “the dumbest man on television.”

Via Twitter, the former reality TV star turned politician watched the second Democratic debate like millions of other Americans, and he had a lot to say about the candidates.

Trump also had some rather harsh words for Lemon who moderated the debate.

The real estate mogul had this to say about the reporter: “CNN’s Don Lemon, the dumbest man on television, insinuated last night while asking a debate ‘question’ that I was a racist, when in fact I am ‘the least racist person in the world.’ Perhaps someone should explain to Don that he is supposed to be neutral, unbiased & fair or is he too dumb (stupid} to understand that.”

He went on to state: “No wonder CNN’s ratings (MSNBC’s also) have gone down the tubes - and will stay there until they bring credibility back to the newsroom. Don’t hold your breath!”

The Donald was fuming over a question that Lemon asked Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) about some Trump’s backers who “prioritize the economy over the president’s bigotry.”

Klobuchar responded by: “There are people that voted for Donald Trump before that aren’t racist; they just wanted a better shake in the economy. And so I would appeal to them. But I don’t think anyone can justify what this president is doing. Little kids literally woke up this weekend, turned on the TV, and saw their president calling their city, the town of Baltimore, nothing more than a home for rats. And I can tell you, as your president, that will stop.”

Trump has been under attack for going after Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), whom he called a “brutal bully” and a “racist” and for slamming the city of Baltimore.

One person said this on the story: "The fact that he put the least racist person in the world in quotations is enough for me🤷🏽‍♂️ He probably trademarked it like M*GA."

Another voter explained: "Jake Tapper and Don Lemon are hosts, not reporters moderators or even reporters. They perhaps were trying to push through that disconnect or just too enamored of their own voice to allow the candidates to take center stage."

This voter shared: "How is this unprofessional behavior acceptable?! There is no other job where you can say AND do inappropriate things and stay employed."

This social user revealed: "But he’s still calling black folks dumb... Now he is really doing it on purpose. But I think he’s messing with the wrong brother for the last time. He already called #donlemon stupid once too many times.💁🏾‍♀️💪🏾💯🤷🏾‍♂️😢🤦🏾‍♀️"

2020 is going to get nasty politically.
