‘America, this is what CNN thinks of you…’
On Saturday evening, anti-Trump CNN host Don Lemon had two guests on his show to discuss the heated exchange Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had with an NPR reporter.
During the CNN broadcast Lemon’s guests, former Republican strategist Rick Wilson and New York Times contributing op-ed writer Wajahat Ali, proceeded to lambast Trump and his supporters.
At one point, Wilson and Ali used fake accents as Lemon laughed uncontrollably.
Reaction to Lemon and his guests’ mockery has been fierce.
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. https://t.co/p3RQzymx4s

Remember all laughter and mockery from Don Lemon when CNN’s candidate couldn’t find Wisconsin on a map? pic.twitter.com/atQ88gMVKS

Someone should ask Don Lemon if he can find New Jersey on a map, because that is where thousands of voters, including many Democrats, have been waiting for days for the chance to get into a Trump rally.

If there was any confusion left this is what the tolerant left and media think of Trump supporters.
Don Lemon, Rick Wilson, and Wajahat Ali showed their true colors.
Apparently the left didn’t learn from calling us Deplorables. pic.twitter.com/vKvJosEAYe

The arrogance, the dismissiveness, the smug cackling, the accents.
If Donald Trump wins re-election this year, I’ll remember this brief CNN segment late one Saturday night in January as the perfect encapsulation for why it happened. pic.twitter.com/8kQ6zN9AZV
