"Some of America's finest black journalists are here tonight. Don Lemon's here, too," joked Wilmore. "Alleged journalist Don Lemon, everybody!"

It appeared that 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. Alleged journalist Don Lemon, everybody!"

CNN caught Lemon on camera giving Wilmore the finger. 

Wilmore 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."

Lemon was seen later that night at the Vanity Fair afterparty, posing for photos with Wilmore, giving the camera the finger in a photo taken by their mutual agent, UTA's Jay Sures. He even tweeted out a photo of the two of them together.
