CNN Portrays Trump Supporters as Illiterate Hillbilly Rubes

CNN’s Don Lemon giggled like a schoolgirl as panelists Rick Wilson and Wajahat Ali mocked President Trump’s supporters as a bunch of illiterate hillbillies.

CNN’s Don Lemon giggled like a schoolgirl as panelists Rick Wilson and Wajahat Ali mocked President Trump’s supporters as a bunch of illiterate hillbillies.

Lemon, who is the defendant in a scandalous sexual-assault case, was dishing about Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s dustup with a NPR reporter who reportedly could not find Ukraine on a map.

“[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 said. “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.”

That “credulous boomer rube demo” would be the gun-toting, Bible-clinging deplorables who sent Donald J. Trump to Washington, DC, to irrigate the Deep State Swamp.

“‘Donald Trump’s the smart one — any y'all elitists are dumb!’” Wilson said with a fake southern accent.

“‘You elitists, with your geography and your maps and your spelling!’” Ali added.

“‘Your math and your reading!’” Wilson said. “‘All those lines on the map!’”

Lemon doubled over on the anchor desk with tears in his eyes, laughing like Anderson Cooper on New Year’s Eve. He had the look of someone who had just peed himself on national television.

President Trump, clearly disgusted by the blistering attack, responded on Twitter.

“Don Lemon, the dumbest man on television (with terrible ratings!),” the president wrote.

The president speaks the truth — not even Brian Stelter or Oliver Darcy watch Lemon’s show.

Lemon and Ali are textbook examples of socially acceptable racists. The bosses turn a blind eye to the hate spewing nightly from Lemon’s mouth.

Imagine what would have happened had a white news anchor giggled uncontrollably as his guests mocked black people. They would’ve been run out of the country.

As for Wilson — well, he’s the clinical definition of a jackass.

“Arrogant, elitist snobs w/ noses so high in the air a good rain would drown them,” Gov. Mike Huckabee wrote on Twitter. “Keep up your contempt of us deplorable ‘hillbillies.’ Laugh at us loud now. Election night when @realDonaldTrump wins in landslide reelection, I’m sure you won’t look so smug.”

It’s not the first time that the soy-milk and Mexican-man-shoes crowd has smeared the president’s base. We’ve been called worse.

President Obama infamously accused folks in the Rust Belt of clinging to their guns and their religion. He called them bitter. Hillary Clinton called us a basket of deplorables. And former Vice President Joe Biden said we were the dregs of society.

Honestly, folks, I’d rather be a gun-toting, Bible-clinging, illiterate hillbilly than a perpetually offended pajama-boy snowflake.

So good luck with that lawsuit, Mr. Lemon. And to show there are no hard feelings, here’s a word of advice from all of us hillbilly rubes: It ain’t nice to put your hands on another feller’s private parts. Allegedly.
