CNN's Lemon stunned by 'stupid, juvenile' Trump-Thanos meme: 'Are you people insane?'

 
"What are we, in junior high school?" Lemon asked on "CNN Tonight" Tuesday. "Like what the hell? What is this? Like what — what? I cannot believe that I'm even having to report this on the news.

"This is crazy," the anchor continued. "This is literally crazy. Are you people insane? Are you insane? 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," Lemon added. "The seriousness of what is happening, 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. A big deal and lots to discuss."

 
The comic book creator of the Marvel supervillain Thanos also slammed the Trump campaign. 

“After my initial feeling of being violated, seeing that pompous dang fool using my creation to stroke his infantile ego, it finally struck me that the leader of my country and the free world actually enjoys comparing himself to a mass murderer. How sick is that?” Jim Starlin said in an Instagram post.

“These are sad and strange times we are going through. Fortunately all things, even national nightmares, eventually come to an end,” he added.
 
Starlin created the Thanos character in 1973. 
 
Spoiler alert.
 
In the Avengers movies, Thanos wipes out half of humanity with a snap of his fingers after collecting the five "Infinity Stones," which give him great powers. In the final film, the Avengers go back in time to stop Thanos's plan.
