mr president: Don Lemon Fights Tears While Reading Open Letter To Donald Trump @balleralert Don Lemon Fights Tears While Reading Open Letter To Donald Trump - blogged by @baetoven_ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Monday night, DonLemon fought back tears while reading a letter he wrote to DonaldTrump and the widow of La David Johnson, one of four soldiers who was killed in Niger after an ISIS attack earlier this month. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The letter came after Myeshia Johnson told GoodMorningAmerica on Monday that she was angered by Trump's condolence call because he allegedly struggled to remember her husband's name. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After the interview, Trump responded on Twitter, saying he "had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, and spoke his name from beginning, without hesitation!" ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Today, when I woke up and saw the emotional interview with grieving gold-star widow my heart was broken like most of you," Lemon said on his CNN show. "And then a moment later the president tweeted and I was shocked. I felt compelled to write an open letter to President Trump and I want to share that letter with you right now." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Dear Mr. President. I’ve interviewed you multiple times. You’ve introduced me to your family. You’ve also criticized me publicly both in front of cameras and on Twitter. Calling me “hateful,” “dumb,” a “lightweight.” Some of your friends have suggested you expected better of me. I’m not sure why you’d expect anything other than fairness and facts first," Lemon began. "We know you get a lot of your news from TV. Several of your friends and supporters have told me you watch this show. So, since I have this platform, I’d like to speak to you personally right now." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He later addressed Johnson saying, "To be extremely candid with you and with the world, as a black man I’m always looking for role models who look like me and the latest one I found was your husband, La David." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Lemon concluded, "May he rest in peace and may you find peace when you can finally get a good night’s sleep knowing that this is America. We got your back. Believe that. Signed, me — Don Lemon."
