Trump says CNN’s Don Lemon is ‘not a smart person’ after controversial segment, calls laugh ‘phony’

Westlake Legal Group Lemon-Trump-AP2 Trump says CNN's Don Lemon is 'not a smart person' after controversial segment, calls laugh 'phony' Victor Garcia Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 6c52b398-a67b-5b7e-80ab-08f688658f93

President Trump has reacted to a recent viral clip of CNN anchor Don Lemon and his panel mocking the president and his supporters, calling the anchor’s laugh “phony.”

“So I watched this guy, he’s a terrible … he’s not a smart person, at all. But I watch that phony laugh. That wasn’t a laugh. He was trying to act, puts his head down, always laughing so hard,” Trump told Fox News’ Sean Hannity as part of an exclusive interview conducted just before the Super Bowl,y. “There’s nothing funny about what was said.”

CNN DON LEMON PANEL FACES INTENSE BACKLASH FOR MOCKING TRUMP SUPPORTERS AS ILLITERATE ‘CREDULOUS RUBES’

The panel, which originally aired Jan. 25, featured Lemon, New York Times columnist and CNN contributor Wajahat Ali, and ex-GOP strategist Rick Wilson discussing the heated exchange between Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and an NPR reporter, in which Pompeo allegedly challenged the journalist to point out Ukraine on a blank map.

Wilson used the topic to mock President Trump as well as his supporters.

“[Pompeo] also knows deep within his heart that Donald Trump couldn’t find Ukraine on a map if you had the letter U and a picture of an actual physical crane next to it,” Wilson began, causing Lemon to chuckle. “He knows that this is, you know, an administration defined by ignorance of the world. And so that’s partly him playing to the base and playing to their audience. You know, the credulous boomer rube demo that backs Donald Trump.”

As Lemon began crying with tears of laughter, Wilson went on to depict what he thought a typical Trump supporter sounded like.

“‘Donald Trump’s the smart one — and y’all elitists are dumb!'” Wilson said with a heavy southern accent.

“‘You elitists with your geography and your maps- and your spelling!'” Ali chimed in during the mockery.

“That was good,” Lemon said, laughing so hard he nearly lost his breath. “That was a good one. I needed that.”

Conservatives criticized the segment and the Republican National Committee used clips of the segment in a fundraising ad.

Lemon addressed the issue this past Tuesday, saying he didn’t catch everything that Wilson had said and he was not laughing at Trump supporters.

“Ask anyone who knows me, they’ll tell you — I don’t believe in belittling people, belittling anyone for who they are, what they believe, or where they’re from,” Lemon said.

Trump and Michael Bloomberg square off in Super Bowl commercials

Westlake Legal Group Trump-Bloomberg_AP Trump and Michael Bloomberg square off in Super Bowl commercials fox-news/person/michael-bloomberg fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/news-events/super-bowl fox news fnc/politics fnc David Aaro article 91973545-2d57-5fbf-bae6-4a087a4ce890

President Trump and Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg ran dueling commercials on Super Bowl Sunday, spending roughly $10 million for 60 seconds of airtime.

Trump’s response on Sunday comes as Bloomberg, a billionaire, has spent roughly $300 million on ads, running twice as many than Trump’s entire 2016 campaign, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The first of two 30-second ads by Trump featured Alice Marie Johnson — a nonviolent drug offender commuted by the president with the help of Kim Kardashian. The emotional ad showed her being reunited with her family and thanking Trump.

TRUMP, IN SUPER BOWL INTERVIEW WITH SEAN HANNITY, PREDICTS FALL OF PELOSI: ‘RADICAL LEFT IS GONNA TAKE OVER’

“My heart is just bursting with gratitude,” Johnson says in the commercial. “I want to thank President Donald John Trump. Hallelujah!”

Trump’s second commercial focused on his record and the booming economy.

Bloomberg responded with longer, but still emotional ad on gun violence, which showed Calandrian Kemp, a mother from Texas who lost her son, George Kemp Jr., from a fatal gunshot wound. He was an NFL hopeful and died at 20-years-old.

“Lives are being lost every day,” Kemp says in the commercial. “It is a national crisis.”

Text later appears on the screen saying “Mike [Bloomberg] started a national gun safety movement that’s changing laws and saving lives.”

SEAN HANNITY PREVIEWS PRESIDENT TRUMP SUPER BOWL INTERVIEW

During a pre-Super Bowl interview on Fox News, Trump fired shots at the presidential candidate, appearing to taunt him for his 5-foot-eight stature.

“It’s OK, there’s nothing wrong — you can be short,” Trump told Sean Hannity. “Why should he get a box to stand on?”

Bloomberg responded to his comments, saying that Trump “lies.”

“I stand twice as tall as he does on the stage — the stage that matters,” Bloomberg said, according to the paper. “I think Donald Trump knows that I can beat him, and that’s why he comes back with those kinds of comments.”

Sean Hannity: Establishment Dems in state of ‘shock and panic’ as Sanders leads Iowa polls

Sean Hannity said Monday the idea of a Bernie Sanders victory in the Iowa caucuses has establishment Democrats in a state of panic.

“The Democratic primary is shaping up to be yet another dumpster fire like it was in 2016,” Hannity said. ” Socialist Bernie Sanders has surged into the lead and the Democratic establishment is in a state of shock and panic.”

TUCKER CARLSON: BERNIE SANDERS AS FRONTRUNNER IS ‘NIGHTMARE SCENARIO’ FOR WASHINGTON DEMS

The “Hannity” host accused Democrats of “rigging” the system to avoid the spectacle of Sanders accepting the party’s nomination for president..

“[In] 2016 Democrats, well, they did their best to rig the primary against Bernie Sanders … DNC [interim] chair Donna Brazile discovered that the Clinton campaign and the DNC had in fact been working together to defeat Bernie throughout the primary. In other words, the system was rigged.”

CANDIDATES MAKE THEIR CLOSING CASES ON THE EVE OF IOWA’S CAUCUSES

“Now,” he continued, “history seems to be repeating itself. The DNC is changing the rules so that one of Bernie’s top challengers — maybe [Michael] Bloomberg or whoever else, can take the debate stage without meeting requirements.”

Hannity called Sanders’ policies “downright scary,” and reiterated his message to viewers who will “render the ultimate verdict” come November.

“Whatever happens in Iowa,” he said, “in 274 days, you, the American people, you will render what is the ultimate verdict.”

“President Trump will be acquitted [by the Senate] on Wednesday and the latest impeachment witch hunt will be dead. The power to decide our future now rests squarely in your hands. You can, in 274 days, shock the world again.”

Eric Trump: Critics were ‘enraged’ by Super Bowl ad because president did what Democrats haven’t

Eric Trump told Fox News Monday that his father, President Trump, enraged critics with his campaign’s Super Bowl ad because it showed the public that he could accomplish what Democrats had promised to do for decades.

The ad featured Memphis grandmother Alice Marie Johnson, who was sentenced to life in prison for her role in a cocaine trafficking ring. She was released in June 2018 under the First Step prison reform act, and the ad showed her overcome with emotion and thanking the president after her release.

SEAN HANNITY: RUSH LIMBAUGH’S CANCER ANNOUNCEMENT ‘HIT ME LIKE A MACK TRUCK’

Eric Trump said Democrats have pledged to reform the criminal justice system but have not taken serious steps to do so.

“It’s one of the reasons they were enraged about the Super Bowl commercial. I was so proud of my father,” he told “Hannity.” “What he did with prison reform is incredible and justice reform … and that was one incredible case.”

He also praised socialite Kim Kardashian for her role in urging the president and Republicans to take action on the First Step Act.

“[The president] did something about it, and it’s driving the Democrats nuts, that something they tried to run on, that they would always promise and didn’t get done and that reminds you of the Democratic Party in general: They always say they are going to get things done and they never do.”

Eric Trump said the president has fulfilled many of his 2016 campaign promises and that the First Step Act that freed Johnson and others will be a “hallmark” of his time in the White House.

“Other presidents promised they would do it and they never got it accomplished,” host Sean Hannity repeated.

The younger Trump added that he was shocked by the amount of support his father is receiving in Monday’s Iowa caucuses — where he is running largely unopposed for the Republican nomination.

He said he was met with chants of “USA” and cheers from a packed crowd outside the capital of Des Moines.

President Trump faces two nominal Republican candidates in former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld — the Libertarian Party’s 2016 vice presidential nominee — and former Rep. Joe Walsh, R-Ill., a radio host and Tea Party activist-turned-Trump-critic.

Iowa caucus-goers deploy unusual tactic at one precinct, line up behind ex-candidate Booker

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6122202260001_6122212891001-vs Iowa caucus-goers deploy unusual tactic at one precinct, line up behind ex-candidate Booker fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/cory-booker fox news fnc/politics fnc c625522f-8f39-57b3-9428-5ec8c90b7d43 article Andrew O'Reilly Andres del Aguila

In an unusual turn of events, some Democratic caucus-goers backing “nonviable” candidates in one Iowa precinct have thrown their support behind New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker — even though he suspended his presidential campaign in early January.

Under the Iowa caucus rules, a candidate is deemed nonviable if they don’t hit a 15 percent threshold in the first round. Their supporters are then free to back another candidate in a subsequent round.

But the caucus-goers for a number of candidates who didn’t make the cut in Iowa’s 38th precinct – namely businessman Andrew Yang, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, former Vice President Joe Biden and Tom Steyer – have apparently deployed the tactic of teaming up for Booker in an attempt to keep delegates away from the viable candidates.

ROSARIO DAWSON ON BACKING BOOKER FOR PRESIDENT

A precinct leader for the nonviable candidates in Precinct 38 – home to Drake University – told Fox News that the strategy to back Booker was decided among the caucus-goers at that precinct alone with the aim of blocking delegates and does not represent a statewide strategy dictated by the campaigns.

From 402 caucus-goers in that precinct, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren took home the most votes after the first alignment with 120, followed by former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg with 100 and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders with 100.

When it was all over, Warren, Buttigieg and Sanders picked up a few more supporters, while Booker amassed 65. He was able to snag one delegate from the stunt. Warren and Buttigieg walked away with two, while Sanders got one as well.

Monday night’s Iowa caucuses marked the opening salvo of the 2020 presidential primary season with voters packing caucus sites across the state in what is expected to be a strong showing for a crowded Democratic field.

It’s too soon to tell what final turnout numbers will be, though some party officials and campaigns were expecting far more people to participate than four years ago, due to Democrats’ enthusiasm to replace President Trump in the White House.

About 170,000 turned out in 2016. The high-water mark for the contest was the 2008 Iowa Democratic caucuses, when nearly 240,000 participated and Barack Obama defeated Hillary Clinton and Martin O’Malley.

Mark Steyn honors Rush Limbaugh after cancer diagnosis: ‘I owe him everything’

Westlake Legal Group Video-10 Mark Steyn honors Rush Limbaugh after cancer diagnosis: 'I owe him everything' fox-news/shows/tucker-carlson-tonight fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article 01c748fd-bb1d-5eb1-9f35-d0720479e82b

Author and columnist Mark Steyn reacted Monday to Rush Limbaugh’s announcement that he has advanced-stage lung cancer and will be off his syndicated radio show until at least Thursday to visit with his physicians.

Steyn, who frequently guest-hosts the “Rush Limbaugh Show,” said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” that he owes a debt of gratitude to the 69-year-old radio legend.

“Unlike many people at the top of this business, Tucker, he has no insecurities, no petty jealousies,” said Steyn, who will be filling in for Limbaugh most of this week. “He is secure and kind and generous. Everyone who has had anything to do with ‘The Rush Limbaugh Show’ will be rooting for him.

RUSH LIMBAUGH ANNOUNCES THAT HE WAS ‘ADVANCED LUNG CANCER’

“He is the kindest. I owe him everything. In America, I owe Rush everything.”

Steyn said Monday’s show was a typical mix of honest conservative insight, humor and random pop culture references. He joked that Limbaugh sounded as at ease as he always does when he made an offhand joke about a song by Welsh singer Tom Jones.

“In the last ten minutes of the show, he told us some really devastating and tough news,” said Steyn, who added that the news was shocking coming from Limbaugh, who he described as an upbeat, kind man who has had a “rich life.”

Steyn added that Limbaugh, who has been broadcast nationwide since 1988, is remarkable in the way he has been able to keep his program at the top of the ratings for decades despite having nearly no guests. He recalled a visit to Australia where he had to tell then-Prime Minister John Howard that he had to fly back to the U.S. to guest-host Limbaugh’s show for the first time. Howard remarked to Steyn how large the radio legend’s following was.

“I said ‘Yes, about 25 to 30 million listeners’. [Howard] goes, ‘Rush has more listeners than we have Australians’.”

Earlier Monday, Sean Hannity credited Limbaugh with helping him build his prominence in the radio industry by allowing him to guest-host in the 1990s.

Since then, Limbaugh has welcomed a handful of commentators and regional AM radio hosts to helm the show while he is away, most recently including Steyn and Harrisburg, Pa. talk show host Ken Matthews.

Ahead of Monday’s Iowa caucuses, The Hoover Institution’s Victor Davis Hanson told “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” that Sen. Bernie Sanders’ popularity in the 2020 Democratic race is shows “how anemic the field of candidates turned out to be.”

“Nobody thought that an unabashed and unapologetic socialist would ever win a primary and much less have a shot at the nomination,” Hanson told host Tucker Carlson.

“Joe Biden’s candidacy was like a scab that was torn off during impeachment,” Hanson said. “We looked underneath, it was sort of a putrid wound with Hunter Biden.

“Elizabeth Warren is what she always was – -she was strident, self-righteous, sanctimonious, part-pseudo socialist — part-capitalist grifter,” Hanson continued, “so that candidacy has stalled.”

Hanson said that though Sanders shares similarities with Trump in terms of “authenticity” and “being hated by the establishment, there are enough differences that he won’t fit the Trump model.”

“Donald Trump poached the heart out of the Democratic Party, the blue-collar, lunch bucket constituency that was turned off by open borders and so-called free trade,” Hanson said.

“I don’t think that [Sanders is] going to get the nomination,” Hanson predicted, noting that Sanders’ open-border policy and increased wealth and income taxes turning off suburban women, the constituency that Trump lost in 2016.

“Is [Sanders] really an outsider?” Hanson asked near the end of the segment. “He spent 40 years in politics and he has nothing to show for it.”

President Trump easily defeated his primary rivals in Monday’s Iowa Republican caucuses, in the first indication that those attempting to take on the president inside his own party stand a slim chance of making headway against the incumbent.

Iowa results showed the president winning with roughly 97 percent of the vote over former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld and former Illinois congressman Joe Walsh. The primary challengers walked away with about 1 percent each.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel congratulated the president, vowing he’ll carry the state in November.

While the focus has been on the Democratic contest Monday, Iowa Republicans also caucused at precincts throughout the state.

“The president has record support among Republican voters,” Republican National Committee spokesman Rick Gorka told Fox News on Monday. “I am not concerned with those embarked on a vanity project.”

When asked how long he would stay in the Republican primary race after his defeat Monday night, Walsh campaign spokesman Charles Siler told Fox News on Monday that the former congressman “is keeping every option open.”

“He sees President Trump as the greatest threat to our republic, the exact thing our Founders feared in a leader,” Siler said, noting that the campaign has spent the last three weeks in Iowa and Walsh has visited the state nearly every week since he announced his candidacy in August.

“We’re leaving straight from Iowa to go to New Hampshire,” Siler said, noting that Walsh has been campaigning in New Hampshire “regularly” since he announced his run.

“We know this is a long-shot effort, but it’s an important one for the nation,” Siler said. “That’s why it’s so distressing that the GOP has canceled so many primary elections and blocked challengers in many other states.”

The Weld campaign did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

During the 2016 Iowa caucuses, Trump came in second place — trailing Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, by nearly 4 percentage points.

While Weld and Walsh are not expected to pose a tough challenge for the president this primary season, the Trump campaign and more than 80 Trump surrogates were sprinkled across Iowa, speaking at Republican caucus locations. They were geared toward planting a flag in Iowa for the general election as much as ensuring a strong showing in the caucuses.

“We are training activists as staff in every corner of the state. We have held over 230 Trump Victory Leadership Initiative Trainings with over 1,700 attendees,” Gorka told Fox News. “The Iowans form the backbone of our program and are the keys to our success in November.”

“After the results tonight, the Democrat machine/attention leaves Iowa and will not be back until there is a nominee,” Gorka continued. “Meanwhile, Republicans will continue to work to keep Iowa in the president’s column in November.”

Trump’s 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale was joined in recent days in Iowa by a slew of Trump officials, like White House acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney; Education Secretary Betsy DeVos; Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson and five other members of Trump’s Cabinet.

Others out making the case for the president’s reelection were House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif.; Reps. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio; Lynne Cheney, R-Wyo.; Mark Meadows, R-N.C.; former Texas governor and former Energy Secretary Rick Perry; Liberty University president Jerry Falwell Jr.; and Mike Lindell, the inventor of “My Pillow.”

Iowa is considered a swing state in the general election. It was narrowly carried by the Democrats in the 2000 election and narrowly by Republicans in 2004. Then-Sen. Barack Obama captured the state by 6 points in 2012. And Trump won Iowa in 2016 by nearly 10 points.
