Don Lemon Orders Omarosa to Zip It During CNN Segment

He wasn't here for the former Apprentice castmember dancing around his question.

Published March 26, 2016

Things got a little heated when these two strong personalities met during a recent news segment. During an episode of CNN Tonight With Don Lemon, the host had just about enough of people not answering his questions — particularly, Omarosa.

It started when Lemon brought up Donald Trump's recent attacks on Heidi Cruz, asking Omarosa, a public Trump supporter, to answer a question about the tweet the Republical presidential candidate posted insulting Cruz's appearance.

"I don't think we should start there," the Celebrity Apprentice star said, attempting to divert the conversation elsewhere.

Lemon wasted no time interrupting her, saying, "I'm not going to let you do that. Omarosa, stop!"

In true Omarosa fashion, she only kept talking, causing Lemon to lose it, eventually cutting to a commercial break. "Cut the mic, everybody. We're not doing that. I want everyone on this panel to answer the question directly," he said.

After returning from commercial, Lemon asked about the Twitter feud between Cruz and Trump, but Omarosa tried to object that as well, saying that in the wake of the Brussels attacks, there were more "newsworthy" stories to focus on. Lemon responded, "We wouldn't be talking about it if your candidate had not put it out there."

After falsely complaining that no one was actively covering Trump's comments on the Brussels attacks, Omarosa addressed the question, saying Trump did not owe anyone an apology "for defending his wife."
