What is protecting Chris Cuomo’s job at CNN. Is it his brother being Governor? If so then they both should be canceled. It’s incomprehensible that a news network that believes in giving its viewers an honest assessment of the news would allow this celebrity the air time he enjoys. But then again, we cannot give CNN the credit or elevate it to the stature of a news organization. It is not. It is a manipulator of the facts to suit its agenda and that being the case, Chris Cuomo is the perfect stooge for the job.
Whether it was falsifying the facts of his own case of COVID when he was telling the world he was in his basement quarantining when in fact he was seen on the streets in the Hamptons…..without a mask. Hypocritical? Yes. Pathetic? Absolutely. When he was working with his brother, Governor Andrew Cuomo, on a daily basis in a joint effort to get as much publicity from each other and from the COVID Pandemic as they could, they turned their frequent shared time on air as a comedy skit. This was brought to its lowest when he mocked the COVID tests by using a giant nasal swab as a prop. Funny? No and in poor taste when the country was being burdened by fear, restrictions, loss of freedom and rights and these two are joking about it. All in the effort to raise ratings and sell more books for the Governor. When the tide turned on the Governor and all of a sudden it was decided that it was a conflict for Chris to report on any activity of Andrew. The comedy duo was done and so was Chris Cuomo’s ratings. Without Donald Trump. Without the various false narratives that he promoted for four years. Without his Bro to play off…..Chris Cuomo was exposed for the hack he is. He is not a news person, a journalist or even a comedian……he is simply a hack with a 60 minute prime time slot on a fake news outlet.
Chris Cuomo hit a new low in news, ethics even in adult discourse. Cuomo made the following statement regarding the recent incidents involving Police officers and alleged criminals:
“And you know what the answer is. You really do. You don’t like it. I don’t like. It scares me. Shootings, gun laws, access to weapons? Oh, I know when they’ll change,” Cuomo said. “Your kids start getting killed. White people’s kids start getting killed. Smoking that doobie that’s actually legal, probably in your state now, but they don’t know what it was, and then the kid runs, and then ‘Pop! Pop! Pop! Pop!’ Cop was justified.”
“‘Why’d you run?’ ‘Oh, he had a baseball game tonight.’ ‘Oh? White kid? Oh, big family, that house over there?’ Those start piling up, ‘What is going on with these police? Oh, what? Maybe we shouldn’t even have police!’ That kind of mania, that kind of madness, that’ll be you. That’ll be the majority, because it’s your people,” Cuomo said. “See, now Black people start getting all guns, forming militias, protect themselves? ‘Can’t trust Deep State!’ Whoo-whoo! You’ll see a wave of change, in access and accountability. We saw it in the 60s. That’s when it changes, because that’s when it’s you.”
This is not only bad news and irresponsible, it is deplorable. This is such a reckless and, let’s call it what it is….stupid….statement that should never come out of the mouth of anyone even pretending to be a journalist. But Chris Cuomo does not even fit into that category. He is a hack and for some reason, he is still employed by CNN. Maybe this says a lot about him and CNN….that they do not even pretend to be a serious and credible news outlet but a source for stories disguised as news that fits their narrative AND is believed as Gospel by half the population. This is why we are in such a place of division in this country. There is garbage being disseminated and a ravenous segment of the country that is too ignorant to see through what they are being served up and hungry for seconds.
