Ivanka Trump just let loose on CNN over a segment on Don Lemon’s show in which a panel viciously mocked Trump supporters.

Ivanka tweeted the clip from Saturday night early this morning along with the caption, “You consistently make fun of half the country and then complain that it is divided. The arrogance, mocking accents and smug ridicule of this nation’s ‘Real Elites’ is disgusting.”

The clip shows Lemon, CNN contributor Wajahat Ali, and ex-Republican strategist Rick Wilson using offensive southern accents to mock Trump supporters. Wilson went so far as to claim that Trump and his “credulous boomer rube” would not even be able to find Ukraine on a map.

Lemon laughed so hard as his colleagues brutally made fun of the intelligence of Trump supporters during the segment that he struggled to hold back tears.

“Donald Trump’s the smart one – any y’all elitists are dumb!’” Wilson said in a heavy southern accent, before Ali added, “‘You elitists with your geography and your maps – and your spelling!’”

“‘Your math and your reading!’” Wilson continued. “‘All those lines on the map!’”

President Trump himself also fired back at Lemon, slamming him for allowing this nonsense to happen on his program.

The president is right to point out that Lemon’s ratings are terrible, as his show finished 36th overall in the cable news show rankings for 2019, according to The Hill. It is also the sixth highest rated show on CNN, a network that is known to be struggling in the ratings in general.

It’s sad that a liberal news network like CNN thinks so little of the millions of Americans who voted Trump into office that they find it acceptable to mock them in this way. All they’re accomplishing with segments like this one is alienating more viewers, and pushing more Americans towards voting for Trump later this year.
