Don Lemon is facing serious backlash on Twitter after a segment on depicting Trump’s voters as “rubes.”

During his show Saturday night, Lemon laughed as former GOP strategist Rick Wilson criticized reports that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had angrily challenged a reporter to find Ukraine on an unmarked map.
“He 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 said. “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.”
From there, Wilson put on a Southern accent to imitate someone in what he called the “credulous boomer rube” demographic: “Donald Trump is the smart one. Y’all elitists are dumb.”
“You elitists with your geography and your maps and your spelling,” added New York Times columnist Wajahat Ali as Wilson chimed back in, “And your readin’!”
“And your reading,” agreed Ali. “Your geography, knowin’ other countries, sippin’ your latte.”
“All those lines on the map!” said Wilson while Lemon laughed loudly.
“Only elitists know where Ukraine is,” said Ali, suddenly giving up the act and saying, “I’m sorry. I apologize. But it was Rick’s fault. I blame Rick.”
“That was good,” Lemon said, before trying to get the panel back on track.
Trump retweeted the contemptible video on his Twitter and all he said was “Don Lemon, the dumbest man on television (with terrible ratings!).” And yet this idiot is claiming that Trump and his supporters who are upset and retweeting the video are trying to bully and intimidate him?
It’s bad enough that Ali went on national TV mocking Trump and his supporters. Seriously bad. Now he’s decrying Trump supporters for being upset with the video and retweeting it, calling them ‘bad faith actors who cry fake victimhood’? What an elitist schmuck!
Also, this isn’t a ‘harmless, silly 30 second clip’ either. If you don’t believe me, then just watch what happens in November.
