CNN host Don Lemon got testy with former “Apprentice” contestant and Donald Trump supporter Omarosa Manigault Friday night when she didn’t answer his question about the Twitter war between Trump and Ted Cruz about their wives.
“Well, I don’t think we should start there. We should start with the fact that a super PAC that supports Cruz, started to attack Donald Trump’s wife…” the former Apprentice star began to say on CNN.
Lemon quickly interrupted Manigault’s answer.
“I’m not going to let you do that. I’m going to answer that. Stop, Omarosa. Stop, Omarosa. Okay, cut the mic, everybody. We’re not doing that. I want everyone on this panel to answer the question directly. and I will let you –” Lemon told his panel of Omarosa Manigault and Cruz supporter Kellyanne Conway.
“You can ask questions but you can’t answer them, Don,” she shot back at Lemon. “You can ask them but I have to answer them.”
Lemon abruptly cut to commercial less than a minute into the segment.
“We’ll be right back. We’ll be right back,” he repeatedly told the audience.
