Yesterday, the Internet was aflame with a viral clip from CNN’s Don Lemon. The anchor and two guests spent several minutes mocking Trump supporters. The ugly and demeaning segment quickly spread online, exposing what liberals really think of Americans. Don Lemon was forced to address the clip. He did a terrible job.
I want to perfectly clear upfront: what you’re about to read is 100% how liberals view Trump supporters. Did you vote for Donald Trump in 2016? Do you consider yourself a patriotic conservative? Then the left despises you. They lecture you for not supporting their views. Then they demand you obey them, come election time.
Over the weekend, CNN’s Don Lemon had former conservative Rick Wilson and Wajahat Ali on to discuss politics. During the segment, Wilson started mocking Trump and his supporters, calling them stupid and imitating a Southern accent. Ali joined in, saying conservatives didn’t know geography and couldn’t read a map.
In response, Lemon started laughing so hard he was crying.
“[Pompeo] also knows deep within his heart that 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,” Wilson began, causing Lemon to chuckle. “He knows that this is, you know, an administration defined by ignorance of the world. And so that’s partly him playing to the base and playing to their audience. You know, the credulous boomer rube demo that backs Donald Trump.”
As Lemon began crying with tears of laughter, Wilson went on to depict what he thought a typical Trump supporter sounded like.
“‘Donald Trump’s the smart one- any y’all elitists are dumb!'” Wilson said with a heavy southern accent. [Source: Fox News]
Over the course of Tuesday, the clip made the rounds across social media and news networks. Many conservatives called out CNN and Lemon for their disgusting attitude. Ivanka Trump defended everyday, hard-working Americans, condemning CNN and their elitists.
You’d think, after all this outrage, that CNN or Lemon himself would try to fix the situation. Sure, the network is biased beyond imagination. They don’t want conservative viewers and do nothing to win them over.
But as a major cable channel, they don’t want to lose support, right? I’m sure there are many viewers—even Democrats—who are disgusted by this display. A smart host would go on his show the next day and simply apologize for the clip. Reassure his audience that he is sorry for laughing at the insulting and grotesque comments.
During an interview on Saturday night, one of my guests said something that made me laugh and while in the moment, I found that joke humorous,” Lemon continued. “And I didn’t catch everything that was said.”
“Just to make this perfectly clear, I was laughing at the joke and not at any group of people,” Lemon claimed. [Source: Daily Wire]
Hmm… did you see an “I’m sorry” or “I apologize” in that statement? No, of course not. Because while Lemon is trying to assert his self-righteousness, saying he’d “never” laugh at a group of people, he’s ignoring the fact that he did laugh at a joke at conservatives’ expense.
We all saw it. He had to wipe tears from his eyes as Ali and Wilson mocked conservatives and called us stupid.
Like a typical Democrat, he’s coming up with an excuse so he’s not responsible for his behavior. How convenient. But others pointed to the many times Lemon insulted conservatives and Trump supporters on his show. This is nothing new.
What we’re seeing is how Lemon and the rest of the left views Trump supporters. They look down on us, calling us uneducated, old, and ignorant. It’s an attempt to dismiss us and label us as irrelevant. The only people that matter to them are young, university-educated (and rich) elitists—who agree with everything they say.
If you’re a hard-working patriot, who loves his family and trusts in God—well, you’re not wanted in Don Lemon’s America. He will insult you to your face, then claim it never happened.
