It was 12 hours ago when we posted a piece entitled, “Don Lemon and Rick Wilson just accidentally handed Trump the best 2020 campaign ad EVER.” Lo and behold, the GOP got to work and turned that bit of TV with a giggling Lemon, Wilson, and Wajahat Ali berating Trump voters into an ad:
EXCLUSIVE–WATCH: GOP Launches Campaign Ad, Fundraiser Off CNN’s Don Lemon Mocking Trump Supporters https://t.co/aBO3W2d2KA

Ryan Saavedra also reports that the GOP is fundraising off the segment:
In an email to voters, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said that she was “absolutely disgusted” by the segment, which was viewed well over ten million times on Twitter in under 24 hours.
“The other night on CNN, Don Lemon and his liberal friends laid their cards on the table and made it obvious what ELITES think of everyday Americans who support President Trump,” McDaniel said in the fundraising email. “These radical hacks painted conservative voters as illiterate hillbillies on national television because they DESPISE President Trump and they DESPISE you.”
Here’s the ad:
Lemon really did lose it over that “U-crane” joke.

They laughed when he said he would run, they laughed when he became the nominee, & they laughed all the way to election night 2016. THEN THEY CRIED! And haven’t stopped whining or trying to take down a legitimate president! They still DON’T UNDERSTAND TRUMP! They will CRY AGAIN!

Who doesn't love The Three Stooges? It's stupid but it makes you laugh. Nobody takes CNN seriously anyway.

It’s shameful that Democrats openly parade their disdain for half of the Citizens of our country. More importantly, what do you think they will do if they regain control of the executive branch? It will make the IRS scandal look like child’s play.
