President Trump ripped Don Lemon as the “dumbest man on television” after the CNN host held a segment that mocked the president’s supporters.

Don Lemon, the dumbest man on television (with terrible ratings!),” Mr. Trump tweeted early Tuesday.

The tweet included a video posted by The Daily Caller of Mr. Lemon bursting into laughter as Republican political strategist Rick Wilson claimed the president wouldn’t be able to locate Ukraine on a map and ripped the president’s base as the “credulous boomer rube demo.”

The clip has racked up nearly 5 million views and counting and Mr. Lemon became a trending topic on Twitter Tuesday morning, with many users calling him an elitist and tone-deaf. Mr. Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. also weighed in on Twitter, bringing up a lawsuit against Mr. Lemon by someone accusing him of sexual assault.

Mr. Trump previously labeled Mr. Lemon the “dumbest man on television” last year after the CNN host questioned his “bigotry” during a Democratic debate.
