CNN host Don Lemon couldn’t control his laughter on air Thursday night after a panelist Symone Sanders’ comments about former White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman.
At the top of the segment, Don tried to run through stories of the day with panelists — including Symone — when Omarosa’s first night in the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ house came up.
Symone couldn’t be bothered to talk about Omarosa and made sure Don knew.
“Don…It’s Black History Month. We have to talk about Omarosa? Alright!” said Symone.
Don lost it.
“I’m just saying,” she continued. “It is Black History Month, ok? Carter G. Woodson did not go to the mat to get Negro History Week that eventually turned into Black History Month for us to talk about Omarosa and her apology tour and her attempt to salvage her reputation on a reality television show. Not during Black History Month, Don.”
By the time Symone finished, Don was in tears.
