CNN Blasted After Don Lemon Breaks out in Laughter As Guests Mock Trump Supporters

After it was reported that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo got into a heated exchange with NPR reporter Mary Louise Kelly and reportedly asked her to point to Ukraine on an unlabeled map, CNN’s Don Lemon dedicated a segment to the incident.

As the panel guests — former GOP strategist Rick Wilson and CNN contributor Wajahat Ali — discussed the incident, Wilson suggested that President Donald Trump could not find Ukraine on a map.

“[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 said.

The panelists started to lose it as Wilson described and impersonated his vision of a stereotypical Trump supporter and conservatives who are disdainful of individuals they deem to be “elitists.”

“Donald Trump’s the smart one — and y’all elitists are dumb!” Wilson said with a mock southern accent.

“You elitists with your geography and your maps- and your spelling!'” Ali added.

As they continued, Lemon broke down laughing so hard he teared up. Finally, he chimed in, “Rick, that was a good one. I needed that.”

Watch the exchange below:

After the video — which originally aired on Saturday — starting circulating on Twitter, conservatives ripped into the panel for mocking supporters of the president.

The video caught the attention of Trump, who called Lemon, “The dumbest man on television (with terrible ratings!)”

Wilson responded to the criticism in a series of tweets, “They can’t stand anyone who punches back, and hope they can intimidate or shame me.”e

The segment came after Pompeo had an interview with Kelly, which reportedly resulted in him yelling at Kelly after the interview for bringing up Ukraine — and asking her to identify Ukraine on a blank map.

“Do you think Americans care about Ukraine?” Kelly said Pompeo asked her after the interview, adding, “He used the F-word in that sentence and many others.”

In a statement, Pompeo ripped into Kelly for violating their agreement that the conversation would be off the record and suggested that she pointed to Bangladesh on the map.

  1. Little Fa++ot with an earring and a mink-coat hey buddy that’s Don Lemon. ???

  2. I’m must be missing something. Why do these idiots think those who voted for Trump are stupid.
    I know quite a few people with college degrees that voted for Trump. I myself have a degree.
    A piece of paper does not make you intelligent,
    Obviously we see this when we watch CNN
    There is something really wrong with these people, not just ignorance and stupidity.
    Get a life. They probably aren’t very happy at home!!!!!! Ya know what I mean lol

  3. If you call that humor confuction then you are one sick puppy. The election is coming and we will remember all the lies you have tried to put on us. You had better have your safe room located before that happens a**hole.

    1. The kiddies who post their anti-American, anti-Trump bullshit here ARE sick in that vacuum between their ears. The muddle-headed idiot who shows his/her/its ass here on a daily basis is to be pitied for his/her/its ignorance and blindness. He/she/it obviously needs to go back to that Venezuelan – or North Korean – “utopia” he/she/it came from to enjoy his/her/its miserable existence with his/her/its Fascist elitists.

  4. You could total the IQ’s of the three idiots in the above pictures (Don Lemon and his two little queer friends) and the sum would still be in single digits!

  5. How unbelievably rude. I expect nothing less from CNN.

  6. Rick Wilson: Could you even be more out of touch? You know nothing about Trump supporters. There is clearly no point in educating you. Go back to your Starbucks latte.

  7. Don’t watch CNN. What’s a Don Lemon? After reading this have to wonder how he ever got his own show. His faux laughing to tears was so precious. These three make the 3 Stooges look smart. But after 4 more years of President Trump his “show” will be canceled anyway.

  8. Hey lemon keep laughing now, but when election day comes you will be crying. Because you have Trump for another 4 years

  9. you Lemon are a total CNN jerk. Most likely you have many issues with your identity as a gay mixed black. You laugh but most laugh at you.

  10. Lemon aren’t you the one who asked if the missing plane was because of a black hole?

  11. Well Rick, I do NOT worship Donald Trump, I don’t even like him that much – though I would have voted for his proctologist over the monumentally corrupt Hillary Clinton – yet I also think people like you, and CNN, are wannabe elitist assholes who look down their collective noses at anyone who either has less formal education that you do, or simply has the temerity to not agree with your views. It is people like YOU who are dividing this country, NOT the conservatives. I hope the next presidential election shows you just how worthless you are to the whole of America.
