President Donald Trump is slamming Don Lemon over a question from Tuesday night's Democratic debate.
In a series of tweets, the president called the CNN anchor, who was one of the debate's moderators, "dumb" and criticized a question Lemon asked that described Trump as bigoted.
"What do you say to those Trump voters who prioritize the economy over the president's bigotry?" Lemon asked Sen. Amy Klobuchar. Trump took to Twitter Wednesday to comment on the question.

"The president has called a lot of people stupid," Lemon said. "Some of those people are white. But I would just like to note that referring to an African American as dumb — remember this is America — is one of the oldest canards of America’s racist past and present: that black people are of inferior intelligence." underline mine.
So when a black person calls poor white southerners crackers and everything they say is a dog whistle to the cracker base. Sounds like the pot calling the kettle black.
They've destroyed the meaning of the word.
