CNN political analyst Joe Lockhart had some no-so-nice words to say following teenage conservative sensation Nick Sandmann’s speech on Tuesday at the Republican convention.

Sandmann, who is a Kentucky resident, capped off his much-anticipated convention speech donning a red MAGA hat at the very end, which helped commemorate the viral video that made him famous a year and a half ago while attending the March For Life.

Mainstream news outlets and political figures defamed the Covington Catholic High School graduate, which eventually led Sandmann’s legal team to issue lawsuits, two of which have been settled for an undisclosed amount with CNN and the Washington Post.

After telling his side of the story of what it was like getting smeared by the left, Sandmann said, “I look forward to the day that the media returns to providing balanced, responsible and accountable news coverage. I know President Trump hopes for that too. And I know you’ll agree with me when we say that no one in this country has been a victim of unfair media coverage more than President Donald Trump.”

Soon after Sandmann’s speech ended CNN analyst Joe Lockhart posted, “I’m watching tonight because it’s important. But i don’t have to watch this snot nose entitled kid from Kentucky.”

Lockhart didn’t specifically say Sandmann’s name, but it didn’t take long for Twitterverse to figure out that he was likely targeting the Covington Catholic High School graduate.
