CNN Don Lemon panel faces intense backlash for mocking Trump supporters as illiterate ‘credulous rubes’

Sharing is Caring!

This is CNN. Three buffoons mocking Pompeo, Trump, and Trump supporters as morons when their cumulative IQ does not add up to Pompeo’s. Pompeo graduated 1st in his class at West Point with an engineering degree and has a genius-level IQ.

A CNN panel is facing intense backlash on Monday night for mocking Trump supporters as “credulous People far more intelligent than millennials rubes,” even sparking fierce condemnation from President Trump and his presidential campaign.

The panel, which originally aired on Saturday night during special live coverage of the impeachment trial, featured CNN anchor Don Lemon, New York Times columnist and CNN contributor Wajahat Ali, and ex-GOP strategist Rick Wilson discussing the heated exchange Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had with an NPR reporter, where he allegedly challenged the journalist to point out Ukraine on a blank map.

Wilson used the topic to mock President Trump as well as his supporters.

“[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 People far more intelligent than millennials rube demo that backs Donald Trump.”
