CNN's Don Lemon Offers Lame Apology To 'Illiterate Redneck' Trump Supporters

CNN host Don Lemon offered an on-air apology after he mocked Trump supporters alongside guests Rick Wilson and Wajahat Ali on Saturday - suggesting they're illiterate rednecks while imitating southern accents.

The segment went largely unnoticed - being CNN and all, until President Trump tweeted it on Monday, writing "Don Lemon, the dumbest man on television (with terrible ratings!)"

In response to the backlash, Lemon 'apologized' Tuesday... by claiming he didn't hear all the jokes.

Wajahat Ali, a New York Times Op-Ed writer, turned himself into the victim, saying that his friends and family now fear for his safety.

Amazing hypocrisy.
