Lemon's opening comments come on the heels of reporting that Trump asked during an Oval Office meeting Thursday why the U.S. is allowing people from "shithole countries," referencing Haiti, El Salvador, and African countries, to immigrate to America.
"But you know what? They’re not shocking, not even really surprising because this is who Donald Trump is. This is what he thinks," Lemon added.
Lemon then went into he called past examples of Trump being a racist before asking "do I need to go on, I get tired of saying it."
After relaying that some at the White House felt Trump's reported remarks could help him with his base, Lemon muttered, "Jesus."
"For years I and others have been trying to tell you, the American people, that this man was exhibiting bigoted behavior," he said. "I asked him about it a number of times, and he denied it but kept up the racist rhetoric and behavior throughout the campaign and now while he's in the White House."
