The left’s lack of regard and respect for Trump supporters is pretty much par for the course in today’s politics.
Throughout the president’s time in the White House, those who suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome have thrown drinks on Trump supporters, stolen MAGA hats, harassed presidential aides in restaurants, etc. This happens time and time again; yet, Democrats fail to understand why they keep losing elections and public support.
Over the weekend, CNN host Don Lemon and guests Wajahat Ali and Rick Wilson each took turns mocking Americans who support the president, as documented by Washington Examiner. Lemon, Ali, and Wilson had fun making fake Southern accents and implying that Trump supporters lack the ability to use a map or understand spelling, math, or reading.
Reviewing CNN’s Latest Mockery of Trump Supporters
This past weekend doesn’t mark the first time that CNN has made fun of Trump-supporting Americans and it certainly won’t be the last. As the 2020 presidential election plays out, those who back this president should expect for the left’s attacks to get even lower and nastier. It’s simply how the Democrats operate.
When speaking with his guests on-air, Lemon discussed the verbal altercation which ensured between Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Mary Kelly of NPR. During this incident, Pompeo allegedly requested the reporter to locate Ukraine on a map without labels. Somehow, Lemon, Ali, and Wilson twisted this situation into an opportunity to insult the intelligence of Trump supporters.
According to Ali, individuals who favor the president of the United States lack the capability to find Ukraine on a map; then came the assertion that Trump’s supporters are merely comprised of a brainless, “credulous boomer rube demo.”
At this point, former Republican strategist Rick Wilson seized the moment to jump in and make even more fun of Trump supporters. Wilson donned a fake accent, pretending to be a Trump supporter that lacked knowledge of geography, maps, spelling, math, and reading.
Throughout all this, Lemon repeatedly laughed, even stating at the end of the segment that he “needed that.”
Response from Team Trump
Shortly after Lemon, Ali, and Wilson finished having their laughs at the expense of Trump supporters, the president and his team weighed in.
Trump took to Twitter, blasting Don Lemon as “the dumbest man on television,” with abysmally low ratings to boot. The president and CNN host don’t share the greatest relationship and have clashed with one another prior to the events that took place on Saturday.
Shortly thereafter, Trump 2020 campaign director Brad Parscale and communications director Tim Murtaugh noted that Trump supporters are ready to win, come November.
When President Trump wins re-election later this year, only time will tell whether or not Don Lemon, Rick Wilson, and Wajahat Ali are still laughing. More likely than not, the trio, along with other Democrats, will be shaking their heads and wondering yet again why President Trump defeated the crooked machine that is today’s left-wing.
