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

A CNN panel is getting intense backlash for mocking Trump supporters as "credulous boomer rubes," even sparking fierce condemnation from President Trump and his reelection 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, in which 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 boomer rube demo that backs Donald Trump."

DON LEMON'S ASSAULT ACCUSER SAYS CNN ANCHOR A 'LIAR AND HYPOCRITE' WITH #METOO COVERAGE

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 — and y'all elitists are dumb!'" Wilson said with a heavy southern accent.

"'You elitists with your geography and your maps- and your spelling!'" Ali chimed in during the mockery.

"'Your math and your reading!'" Wilson added. "'All those lines on the map!'"

63 million Trump supporters will teach the democrats a good lesson at the polls. Bai, its Hillary part two all over again. 

Remember, it's the electoral college which matters.

Bring on Bernie and Socialism !!!

Well...if they just posted like you did, they aint too smart

you could not be more true. You are, taking a cue from Scarborough and not only disinterring irony from the grave but dragging it about knocking over grave stones. This fellow is not only a bloody dunce; he is one of the those who think he represents what is the pinnacle of intellectual excellence! I imagine he thinks one would willingly read all of that ponderous drivel he posted above!

Bhai, I am hoping and praying the Orange Orangutan wins. The illiterate segment of America needs to experience Dictatorship and totalitarianism! Le t Dem Skont feel how we did for 28 years. The Americans put us in dat situation!! Payback is a BYTCH!!

Where is there socialism except in the heads of the dunces like you who are quick to adopt phrases ignorantly without knowing what they imply.  The rich class are not conservative but rabid predators who utilize the umbrella of the conservative sector to delude those in the fly over zones who are indeed feeling undue economic burdens.The reality that there will be no trickle down wealth to them is a fools dream. It never happens, has never happened. Making sure government is Equitable is not socialism it is what good honest government do. The 3 trillion dollars give away to the rich will be on their backs. They will have to pay the short fall in the treasury and the loss of a secure social safety net in The future. 

And Trump will lose. America is tired of the face of a a fraud in the WH. It has lost support in the world and is increasingly losing allies. America has meaning only if it remains a beacon of hope for humanity. It cannot be that with that lying, empty headed nincompoop in office. He knows little of history, never reads, do not listen except to sycophants and have no guard ails against the corrupt. No he made himself obsolete aptly demonstrating what it means to be Disgustingly obscene and bereft on any meaningful moral core that help humanity and the planet. He has long ago lost the reelection. The  noisy,vacuous few like you will not make him president again.

Liberal arrogance.  They will get the response at the ballot box.  This is what they are left with after all efforts to depose the President have failed!

Its over, until 2024!

The orange one has never been above 45 percent. Arizona, Georgia, Nevada are also now in play and they can off set a loss in MI for example. He cannot pull the same inside straight. I also dare not retort with "conservative arrogance" since nothing about that stinker is conservatism  in the traditional sense.

FOX News should listen to some of their anchors like the racist Lou Dobbs mocking the democrats before they start criticizing CNN. They should have listened to Chris Hayes on MSNBC last night.

Ow me gaad.

 Look how all you crying. Me going to order Kleenex for the democrat socialist leftists. 
Trump will win the electoral college, again. I cannot believe that Guyanese ran away from Burnham socialism and are living in a free market economy but are now embracing failed socialist leftists policies and politicians. Look at the hobos and homelessness in Schiff riding. That’s the end result of socialism.

dude, get real.Where in the entire democratic delegation can you find someone who is not a capitalist. The right talking points to idiots with who never went to school and who never read a book on political philosophy are the kinds of morons the socialist tagline is supposed to attract. Thankfully there are fewer of you in the world.  And surely You do not know a damn about the district or you would know it include WiHo, Burbank, and Pasadena for example.But as usual you stupidly follow the talking points of faux news

Bernie boldly declared socialist policies and agenda and so does many others in the current crop of losers in the democratic leadership clown race.  How blind or deaf are you ? Piwari ? 
You are prattling leftists/socialist and antiman nonsense. 
Piwari ? 
BTW, how about your prediction of the  game changer Shuman coming along ? Just like Hillary ?

 You come here prattling BS, it might stick with stupid Democrat leftists. Was your best friend ever released from jail ?

You and your usual nonsense predictions. You have made zero contribution to society and GNI. You remain an armchair bullshitter here. Nothing of value except the same old crap.

You uneducated bumpkin, bernie is still capitalist despite his social agenda. I do not know your "antiman" pejorative has to do with anything. Most certainly it does not imply stupid since some oft he planets leading creative geniuses were gay. This tact simply means like the usual bottom feeder you believe trolling gay people and labeling them democrats means you are on to something. Unfortunately it highlights the fact you are a dunce. 

I do not know what I predicted about shuman and how that again enters the discussion. Shuman has a point that a middle way out our political quagmire rests on a third party leading the drive for change but again you are too dunce to see that. 

I presume you are sitting on a throne if I am on an arm chair. It is clear that you to me is light to darkness. You are a bloody mal educated dunce. 

Look at this jackass calling Bernie a capitalist. This is the biggest joke of 2020 from a leftist clown. 

You continue to make a jackass of yourself at GNI by now back peddling from Shuman whom you called the biggest game changer in Guyanese politics. 

A clown who lacks judgement and credibility at GNI and whose politician best friend went to jail for theft and fraud and further disgraces himself by claiming that he prefers the numb skull Granger and his PNC over the PPP any day of the week. 

A clown who declared Hillary President the night before the votes were counted ? 

D2 takes the crown as GNI clown of the year award.  Take your package of hogwash elsewhere, your constant BS is stinking up the place, wait, is that your piwari stinking up the atmosphere ?  
Or is it that piwari has eroded you brain cells that you constantly post BS which impresses small minds at GNI ?

I have news for you, socialism is dead. Trump will continue to torment you for another four years as you mutter nonsense in your drunken stupor.  

Get off that rocking chair, your dentures just fell off.
