2020.01.27 CNN on Trumpers
This clip of CNN (Don Lemon) and his guests making fun of Trump voters, is like Hillary and the famous "Deplorables", or Obama and the God/Gun Clingers quotes. It shows an Igno-Arrogance that they (a) think they know the other side (they obviously don't), (b) think they are more educated than the other side (most quizzes on History/Politics, show they don't) (c) are smarter/wiser than the other side, when their side believed the Russia hoax, thinks healthcare can be free, and eats tide pods. This is magnified because Lemon/CNN has been especially wrong/stupid and had to offer retractions on the very topics (Urkaine, Yovanovitch and Election meddling) that they're mocking the other side over.
