Former President Barack Obama asked during a speech at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on Friday what had happened to the GOP in the Trump era.
Don Lemon repeated the question on the later broadcast of “CNN Tonight,” and aired throwback footage of various Republicans bashing President Donald Trump before his 2016 election victory — and then praising him after.
“You can’t make this up,” said Lemon, who played clips of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Trump’s counselor Kellyanne Conway all embarrassingly going back on their previously critical words.
“My how things have changed,” said Lemon. “How the Republican Party has changed.”
