CNN’s Don Lemon Had This Reaction to Larry Wilmore’s Joke at the #WHCD [VIDEO]

Don Lemon flipping the bird to Larry Wilmore at the White House Correspondents' Dinner

Comedian Larry Wilmore brought a nuclear bomb to a butter knife fight at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Saturday night, spreading his ridicule and hilarity fairly equally across all ideological spectrums, including the media.

One of the biggest bombs came at the expense of CNN host Don Lemon and his reaction was priceless.

“Some of America’s finest black journalists are here tonight,” Wilmore told the mutual admiration society in attendence, the most elite that Hollywood and Washington, DC, has to offer. “Don Lemon’s here too,” Wilmore said, suggesting that he wasn’t included in the group of top black journalists — a real jab.

Then Larry Wilmore gave Don Lemon a shoutout.

“Hey Don, how’s it goin’? Alleged journalist Don Lemon everybody!”

Lemon, to his credit, was one of the only targets in the attendance who was able to visibly laugh at themselves when being the brunt of a joke. But then after laughing, he lets fly a single- fingered salute to Wilmore for the entire world to see.
