Don Lemon Gives Larry Wilmore The Middle Finger

CNN's Don Lemon didn't think Larry Wilmore was very funny during his speech at Saturday's White House Correspondents' Dinner.

During Wilmore's monologue, The Nightly Show host introduced Lemon, by saying, "some of America's finest black journalists are here tonight. Don Lemon's here too," he added. "Alleged journalist Don Lemon, everybody!"

Lemon did not enjoy the joke, and CNN caught him on camera giving Wilmore the finger.

He hit CNN hard during his speech, also taking aim at Wolf Blitzer. "Speaking of drones, how is Wolf Blitzer still on television?" He later added that he "used to watch CNN when it was a news network."

Wilmore hosted the annual event on Saturday in Washington, D.C.
