Just in case you had any doubt that Fake News CNN wasn’t completely and totally, unabashedly anti-Trump, this weekend’s segment with Don Lemon and his guests Rick Wilson and Wajahat Ali certainly sealed the deal.
In fact, the insults hurled at Trump supporters made Lemon laugh so hard that he cried.
Wilson began insulting the president, claiming, “Donald Trump couldn’t find Ukraine on a map if you had the letter ‘U’ and a picture of an actual, physical crane next to it.” A line which prompted Lemon to double over with laughter.
He continued, “He knows that this is an administration defined by ignorance of the world, so that’s partly him playing to their base and playing to their audience, you know, the credulous boomer rube demo that backs Donald Trump, the ones that think that, ‘Donald Trump’s the smart one, and there all y’all, y’all elitists are dumb,'” he said in a southern accent.
Ali clearly couldn’t resist, and chimed in, “You elitists, with your geography and your maps and your spelling.”
At that point, Lemon was laughing so hard he had to pull out tissues and wipe away his tears.
Wilson replied, “Your math and your readin!’”
The disgusting banter continued until Lemon could contain himself, and said “Rick, that was a good one, I needed that.”
The video quickly went viral and even President Trump reacted to the video on Twitter, calling Lemon “the dumbest man on television (with terrible ratings!).”

First Daughter Ivanka Trump also reacted to the video, writing, “You consistently make fun of half the country and then complain that it is divided. The arrogance, mocking accents and smug ridicule of this nation’s ‘Real Elites’ is disgusting.”

Political strategist, Caleb Hull, perhaps had the best analysis of the video, pointing out on Twitter, “This is why Trump won and will win again.”

So, here’s a special “thank you” to CNN and Don Lemon for unwittingly assisting the Trump 2020 campaign.
