When it comes to the self-styled Democrat 'elite,' they hate you, they really hate you

CNN's Don Lemon helped Trump's re-election campaign by giggling helplessly as his guests on CNN Tonight reached new heights of vitriol insulting Trump and his supporters.  The video is a dream political ad...for Trump.

Indeed, Trump got the ball rolling for his campaign by tweeting out the video to remind Americans that Democrats, and their NeverTrump acolytes, have a "yuuuge" unearned sense of superiority.  For that reason alone, they're not fit to govern:

The set-up for the yuck-fest was a discussion about Mike Pompeo's accusation that NPR reporter Mary Louise Kelly mistook Bangladesh for Ukraine.  For Rick Wilson, a one-time Bush-era Republican campaign consultant and virulent NeverTrumper, the opportunity to ridicule Trump was too good to miss:

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 the picture of an actual physical crane next to it.

When Lemon and fellow guest and CNN contributor Wajahat Ali cracked up at that line, Wilson couldn't resist insulting Trump's supporters as well:

He knows that this is a, you know, an administration defined by ignorance of the world, and so that's part of him playing to their base and playing to their audience, you know, the credulous boomer rube demo that backs Donald Trump — that wants to think that (Wilson does impersonation) "Donald Trump's the smart one, and y'all — y'all elitists are dumb!"

Within seconds, Lemon was doubled over with laughter, snorting and sniggering uncontrollably.  Ali, too, wanted to make Lemon laugh, so he chimed in with his own insults, all delivered in a fake Southern accent.  He and Wilson quickly settled into a back-and-forth comedy routine that soon had an overwhelmed Lemon gasping and dabbing at his eyes with a handkerchief:

Wajahat Ali: You elitists with your geography and your maps and your spelling!

Wilson: Your math and your reading!

Ali: Yeah, 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!

The handkerchief was interesting.  We're not in the habit of watching Don Lemon, so we're guessing here, but unless Lemon habitually carries a snowy white handkerchief, there's a staged quality to all of this.  It's as if he had been warned that his guests were about to run an anti-Donald comedy act and that he'd better come prepared.

While some Trump-supporters took offense, for most, the response to these men's puerile jokes and giggles wasn't anger.  It was, instead, a combination of "Thanks for confirming how you really think of us" and "Oh, my God!  Thank you!  Your 30 seconds of laughter will make the best Trump campaign video ever."

The video is also a reminder, if any is needed, that there's nothing "elite" about Leftists.  Yes, most have attended college, but that no longer means anything.

Once upon a time, college taught people the best of Western culture and cultivated in them knowledge both broad and deep.  They learned reasoning and philosophy.  They learned that Bram Stoker, not Jane Austen, wrote Dracula, something even "rubes" knew 50 years ago but that today's New York Times college-"educated" reporters do not know:

In an earlier version of this article, the given name of the actress who introduced the couple was misspelled. She is Vaishnavi Sharma, not Vaishmavi. The given name of the wedding officiant was also misspelled. She is Gabra Zackman, not Dabra. Also, the author of "Dracula" was incorrect. He is Bram Stoker, not Jane Austen. (Emphasis added.)

College also used to teach people how to be "ladies" and "gentlemen."  This was a set of skills that envisioned good manners and decency.  When was the last time you saw a Leftist media figure display either?  Heck, even Marie Antoinette was reputed to have said, "Let them eat cake" rather than "They're too stupid to eat cake."

So no, we're not offended by the video.  We're impressed by the arrogance and ignorance it displays.  And to paraphrase Liberace, we'll be laughing all the way to the polls.
