Don Lemon, the dumbest man on television (with terrible ratings!). https://t.co/iQXCc7lvCt— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 28, 2020
President Donald Trump ripped CNN anchor Don Lemon on Monday night after a video of Lemon and his guests mocking Trump voters went viral on social media.
The video showed Lemon, former Republican strategist Rick Wilson, and CNN contributor Wajahat Ali using a stereotypical southern accent to mock Trump voters.

A clip from a recent disparaging discussion on CNN about Americans who support Donald Trump has gone viral, inspiring blowback from conservatives, Trump fans, and Trump himself.
In the discussion, which occurred over the weekend, the host, Don Lemon, and two Trump critics, op-ed writer Wajahat Ali and Republican Rick Wilson, suggest that Trump supporters are illiterate “rubes” who can’t read a map or do basic math.
Senator Martha McSally (R-AZ) blasted fake news CNN reporter Manu Raju on Thursday morning. “You’re a liberal hack, Manu. I’m not talking to you!” the Republican Senator said after Manu Raju asked her if ‘new impeachment evidence’ would get her to reconsider her position on President Trump.
