Don Lemon had a pair of guests on his CNN program Tuesday to discuss Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump’s recent comments about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s loss to President Barack Obama back in the 2008 Democratic primary. He was hoping to have a conversation as to whether it was presidential for Trump to say, “[Clinton] was going to beat [Obama,] she was favored to win, and she got schlonged.”

However, his guest Kurt Schlichter instead was determined to bring up President Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky. “[I]t’s gonna take a lot more for me to get upset at a woman who enabled a guy who turned the Oval Office into a frat house and his intern into a humidor,” he quipped.

Lemon tried steering the conversation back to Trump when he asked, “Have you ever heard a presidential candidate say things like this?”

“No,” Schlichter replied. “But I know of a president who, well, turned his intern into a humidor, so I think we set the standard a little lower than Donald Trump has even approached.”

Finally, Lemon got so frustrated that he wound up cutting the segment short, adding, “This is the lowest of the low, and it has nothing to do with Hillary Clinton. It is just a cheap shot. … Thank you. We’re done.”
