The CNN host compared Trump's Tuesday night debate performance to a kid "whose doctor had prescribed him too much Adderall."

Lemon revealed his thoughts to CNN anchor Chris Cuomo as he discussed the "trainwreck" debate between Trump and Joe Biden – which consisted of constant bickering and interrupting.

He said: “I felt like I was watching a kid whose doctor had prescribed him too much Adderall.

"Am I wrong? That’s how I feel because he was overly aggressive.

"It’s like he was hopped up on, I don’t know what was going on."

Cuomo responded: "I wish I could see it that way, because I think a lot of people share your observation.

“This is the only guy I know.”

Before Lemon likened Trump to a child, Cuomo suspected the Trump Administration's idea on how to approach the debate was to "come out and hammer" Biden.

Cuomo said they wanted to show that Biden "gets addled" and "can’t keep up with the pace of Donald Trump."

He added: "And that Donald Trump is mighty and strong and Joe is stuttering and weak.”

The chaotic 90-minute debate – which was the first presidential debate between Trump and Biden – took place in Cleveland, Ohio.

News anchor Chris Wallace moderated the debate and was criticized for "losing control" of the two.

The two men frequently talked over each other with Trump interrupting,so often that Biden eventually snapped at him, "Will you shut up, man?"

Trump repeatedly interrupted his opponent with angry and personal jabs that sometimes overshadowed the sharply different visions each man has for a nation facing historic crises.

The president also refused to condemn white supremacists who have supported him.
