CNN anchor Don Lemon on Saturday night guffawed and brought himself to tears of laughter, dabbing a tissue to dry his eyes, as he and two guests ridiculed the stupidity of President Donald Trump and his supporters, with the two guests invoking a dumb person impersonation meant to sound like a Trump voter. The exchanges came during a segment on the conflict between Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and NPR reporter Mary Louise Kelly whom Pompeo asked to point to Ukraine on a map.
CNN contributor Rick Wilson charged that “Donald Trump couldn’t find Ukraine on a map if you had the letter ‘U’ and the picture of an actual physical crane next to it.” As Lemon fell forward in laughter, Wilson claimed Pompeo was trying to please “the credulous boomer rube demo that backs Donald Trump,” before he broke into an impersonation to make fun of Trump supporter: “Donald Trump’s the smart one, and y’all – y’all elitists are dumb!”
CNN contributor Wajahat Ali jumped in, also making an impersonation: “You elitists with your geography and your maps and your spelling!” Wilson, still using his impersonation voice while Lemon laughed, “Your math and your reading!”
