CNN host Don Lemon completely lost it during his Tuesday night show over an “Avengers”-style meme published by a Twitter account called “Trump War Room,” which is managed by President Donald Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign.
The troll video Lemon spent a solid two minutes discussing depicts Trump as Marvel character Thanos. The villain, superimposed with Trump’s face, snaps his fingers to destroy top Democrats, such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY), who are leading the hyper-partisan impeachment proceedings against the president.

It appears that Lemon provided proof that the tweet got the reaction it was intending to.
“This is, this is crazy. This is literally crazy. Are you people insane? Are you insane?” he asked. “Go ahead. Troll the Democrats on Twitter. Do this stupid, silly you-know-what. Play this stupid, juvenile meme game.”
“History won’t record this meme stupid crap, but history will record this: the seriousness of what is happening,” Lemon said. “That today is the day that the House of Representatives in the United States of America introduced articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump, the president of the United States of America, for committing high crimes and misdemeanors.”
