Published

A panel on CNN mocked Trump supporters over the weekend in a video that has since gone viral and earned the ire of not only those who back the president, the president himself, but also his family members.

Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter came to the defense of millions of Americans who voted for her father in the previous 2016 election, calling what the panel did “disgusting.”

In the video, CNN host Don Lemon and friends made fun of Trump fans, calling them “rubes” who can’t read or do basic math.

Here’s more on what Ivanka said about the whole fiasco via The Daily Wire:

Early Tuesday morning, Trump’s daughter Ivanka took CNN to task for the panel, pointing out that the network constantly bemoans the divisions in the country while making fun of those who don’t vote Democrat.

“You consistently make fun of half the country and then complain that it is divided,” Ivanka tweeted. “The arrogance, mocking accents and smug ridicule of this nation’s ‘Real Elites’ is disgusting.”

As The Daily Wire previously reported, the panel consisted of writer Wajahat Ali and Republican consultant Rick Wilson, who claimed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo “knows deep in 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 later went on to dawn a horrible fake southern accent and said, “He knows that this is, you know, an administration defined by ignorance of the world, and so that’s partly him playing to their base and playing to their audience, you know, credulous boomer rube demo that back Donald Trump, that wants to think that Donald Trump’s a smart one, and y’all — y’all elitists are dumb.”

Here’s a full transcript of the segment below so you can see this mess for yourself:

CNN’S DON LEMON: Oh as I said, NPR is standing by their reporter after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused her of lying. It is the latest in a growing list of incidents involving Pompeo and journalists.

Joining me now to discuss, CNN Contributor Wajahat Ali and Rick Wilson. Rick is the author of “Running Against the Devil.” Good evening, gents. Good to see both of you.

So, quite the story that we have here. Secretary of Pompeo is calling Kelly — calling her a liar but she says that she told them that she would — not only did she ask about Ukraine and she followed up in writing but she says that she never agreed for the exchange after the interview off the record.

So, Rick, who do you think is a liar here?

RICK WILSON, REPUBLICAN STRATEGIST: Look, Mike Pompeo has become one of the high priests of Trumpism. In the core of Trumpism is a war on the media. And so I think Mike Pompeo is trying to cast himself as this hero and to please Donald Trump. This isn’t about whether or not she could correctly identify Ukraine on a map, this is part of their performative, you know, media hatred that they engaged on the daily.

LEMON: Wajahat, I want to bring you in. Mary Louise Kelly told NPR, an NPR co-host that before ending the interview, Pompeo, quote, leaned in and glared at her and then he tried to give her a pop quiz. I mean, what is with this intimidation mode?

WAJAHAT ALI, CNN CONTRIBUTOR: Yes, this is the pathetic insecurity of the spineless amoebas of men such as Mike Pompeo and the other men in Trump’s administration, right?

I mean, look, this is a recurring theme with Pompeo. He tried to intimidate a female reporter of the USA Today in May, he really doesn’t like it when female reporters in particular actually asking questions in our intelligence and do follow-ups. Our colleague in an affiliate in Nashville in August, same thing happened, and this time around he throws F bombs, he brings out a map. I mean, why does he have a map of without countries? That’s so strange. And then she points it out. And who should we believe? Mary Louise Kelly, a veteran journalist or Mike Pompeo who this month alone has lied to the American public about imminent threats, right? And this man from Harvard has redefined imminent in a way which is completely the opposite of imminent. And then it was imminent threat to not imminent then one embassy then four embassies. No casualties, 11 casualties, and now 34 casualties with soldiers suffering very traumatic brain injuries.

So, who are you going to believe o? Mike Pompeo or Mary Louise Kelly who has the tapes? I’m going with Mary Louise Kelly.

LEMON: OK. So let’s see. Let’s look at the — OK. In the statement, Rick, the last line Pompeo’s statement says, it is worth noting that Bangladesh is not Ukraine. First of all, Kelly has a master’s degree in European studies from Cambridge University.

WILSON: Right.

LEMON: Also, he doesn’t really say that she couldn’t identify Ukraine on a map. He insinuates — it’s just a petty attempt to put her down, right? Is that what this is?

WILSON: Of course. Of course. It’s — he’s just trying to demean her, and obviously it’s false. And look, he also knows deep in 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. He knows that this is, you know, an administration defined by ignorance of the world, and so that’s partly him playing to their base and playing to their audience, you know, credulous boomer rube demo that back Donald Trump, that wants to think that Donald Trump’s a smart one, and y’all — y’all elitists are dumb.

ALI: You elitists with your geography and your maps and your spelling even though —

WILSON: Your math, your reading.

ALI: Yes, your reading, you know. Your geography knowing other countries. Sipping your latte.

WILSON: All those lines on the map.

ALI: Only them elitists know where Ukraine is. Sorry. I apologize.

LEMON: Oh my god.

ALI: But you know what — it was Rick’s fault. I blame Rick.

LEMON: Oh my God.

ALI: But in all honesty —

WILSON: Blame Rick, why not.

ALI: — you know what NPR should do.

LEMON: Sorry, hold on. Wait, wait. Give me a second. Hold on. Hold on. That was good. Sorry. Rick, that was a good one. I needed that.

And CNN wonders why its viewership is shrinking so steadily these days? Seems pretty obvious what the problem really is, don’t you think?

Save conservative media!

Obama In 2008: We Can Only Trust Mail-In Ballots If Signatures Are Verified (Watch)

Ain’t that something!?

It’s pretty amazing how Democrats can flip the switch. They hated the Electoral College for a long time…until their guy “won.” Many of them, like Barack Obama and Rep. Jerry Nadler (NY), once said mail-in voting is rife with fraud. But again, because their guy “won,” they refuse to speak the truth. Cowards. Here’s what the worst president in American history said in 2008 on MSNBC, “Well, I think we have to figure out whether this is fraud proof. I mean, Oregon has a terrific mail-in system but they’ve already scanned everyone’ signature whose registered to vote so that they can check to make sure that in fact the right people are voting.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/RaheemKassam/status/1331942266018082819 LOOK: https://twitter.com/Barnes_Law/status/1332354346307108869?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1332354346307108869%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2020%2F11%2Fflashback-obama-says-mail-ballots-can-trusted-signatures-verified-video%2F Even though Dems claim voter fraud isn’t real, Nadler said in 2004 that it was very real.

If you don’t agree with us, you should be ostracized or even imprisoned. That’s how the left thinks. That’s how crazy they have become. The left is clearly comprised of communists and socialists and they’re not even afraid to hide it anymore. Keith Olbermann is one of the worst they have to offer. The former ESPN host blabbered, “G– d**n it! When the policy differences are between maintaining American democracy and substituting racist, one party rule. You’re G– d**n right, we want to criminalize policy differences that might exist between the outgoing administration and the administration that is about to take over.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/stillgray/status/1331426604724043777?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1331426604724043777%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fyoure-g-dn-right-we-want-to-criminalize-policy-differences-olbermann-says-out-loud-what-cnn-merely-implies%2F In short, Olbermann is a goon.
