As Twitchy readers know, Don Lemon, Rick Wilson, and some other guy who hasn’t trended made complete jackas*es of themselves on Saturday trashing Americans who support Trump … a segment that didn’t actually garner any attention until Monday when Trump himself shared it.
Guess that means nobody was watching.
The irony of nobody seeing CNN unless Trump shares it is PERFECTION.
And speaking of nobody seeing it, Brit Hume brought up an excellent point:
Interesting behavior from a network in serious need of viewers. https://t.co/TEgQzDgb5b

You’d think a network tanking in ratings would be more concerned about alienating possible viewers but NOPE.
From The Daily Caller:
Eighty seconds. That’s how long it took for a CNN panel to show just what they think of President Donald Trump’s supporters.
CNN anchor Don Lemon, frequent CNN guest Rick Wilson and New York Times op-ed writer Wajahat Ali (who is also a CNN contributor) rolled out nearly every possible stereotype about Republican voters in a segment that aired Saturday night but didn’t really catch the public’s attention until Monday.
Oh, so THAT’S who that guy is.
It would be interesting to know if the owner of CNN, AT&T, and its CEO, Randall Lynn Stephenson, agrees with his network's disparaging characterization of half the country's citizens, and millions of AT&T customers. Perhaps you can ask him @brithume ~

That never gets old.
The only people offended were those at airports.

The same people who are already offended because airports force them to watch CNN, yup.
They need to show this at the President’s rally tonight in New Jersey! How do you think that would go over? 4 more years ??

I'd venture a guess is that more people have seen the clip from other sources than they got to watch it live.
That said…the left will never learn.

Trump really should send them a thank you note for helping him get re-elected.
