Lemon noted that Trump seemed more angered by the fallout from his actions ― including a permanent Twitter ban and the PGA’s cancellation of its plans to hold championships at Trump golf courses ― than the riots at the U.S. Capitol that led to five deaths.
CNN then aired a bizarre exchange from Fox News on Monday in which Trump campaign spokesperson Hogan Gidley insisted that Trump was the “most masculine person ever” after he was asked if the president felt “emasculated” by the Twitter ban.
“I’ve heard a lot of pathetic things from this White House. This one really takes the cake,” Lemon said. ”A big tough guy who incited a riot and then hid in the White House for five days. And still refuses to take responsibility!”

“He is the biggest snowflake of them all. The biggest one! … The president’s legacy will be not the most masculine president but the biggest loser we have ever had as president,” Lemon said.
Lemon’s name began trending on Twitter after the outburst:
