If you ever wanted a perfect encapsulation of what the Left really thinks of you, here it is.

On a Saturday night edition of CNN Live, host Don Lemon could not contain his laughter when one of his guests attacked the intelligence of "bommer rube" Trump voters. 

While discussing a report that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had grilled NPR anchor Mary Louise Kelly by asking her to find Ukraine on a map, Lemon asked Republican strategist Rick Wilson if it was "a petty attempt to put her down, right?"

Wilson, in an utterly classless response, said, "Of course - of course. 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. 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 (impersonating Trump voter) 'Donald Trump's the smart one, and y'all -- y'all elitists are dumb!'"

As Wilson trashed President Trump and his supporters, Lemon was literally doubled over in laughter.
