Don Lemon CNN Panel Mocks Trump and His Supporters

CNN host Don Lemon led a panel that mocked President Trump and his supporters Saturday night during a show on the impeachment trial.

Lemon’s political panel included CNN contributor and New York Times columnist Wajahat Ali and former Republican campaign consultant and never-Trumper Rick Wilson.

The panel initially discussed an exchange between Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and an NPR reporter.

Wilson started the insults by saying President Trump would not be able to geographically locate Ukraine and the discussion went downhill from there.

Wilson added, “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.”

Lemon thoroughly enjoyed Wilson’s comments as he laughed at them.

Ali joined in the mockery with his own insulting comments, saying, “You elitists with your geography and your maps- and your spelling!”
