Rick Wilson and Wajahat Ali Double Down on CNN Segment Insulting Trump Voters

Rick Wilson and Wajahat Ali stand by their segment on Don Lemon's CNN show that has received a huge wave of backlash.

The segment, which aired on Saturday but only began to receive attention on Monday, featured Wilson and Ali using exaggerated southern accents to mock President Trump supporters as rednecks who are unable to read, write, or understand maps.

"'You elitists with your geography, maps, spelling,'" Ali said. "'Yeah, your reading. Your geography. Knowing other countries. Sipping your latte.'"

Lemon burst into uncontrollable laughter and had to regain his composure before resuming the program.

Trump responded to the video on Twitter by calling Lemon "the dumbest man on television (with terrible ratings!)."

"Friends are now concerned about my safety," Ali said after Trump's tweet. "I refuse to be intimidated & bullied by bad faith actors who cry fake victimhood, whining about a harmless, silly 30 second clip while endorsing Trump, a cruel vulgarian who debases everyone."

Wilson said the outrage about their comments was "fake" because "the MAGA world wants the freedom to attack, insult, demean, and abuse anyone who doesn’t aggressively worship Donald Trump. They can’t stand anyone who punches back, and hope they can intimidate or shame me."

Wilson also responded to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) after he tried to fundraise off of the video.
