The Department of Veterans Affairs has been a dysfunctional mess for decades and thus taking place over multiple presidencies. The latest example of the VA’s dysfunction has been an apparent “computer glitch” that resulted in veterans not receiving their G.I. Bill benefits. But facts be damned (like most nights) to CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Thursday night’s Prime Time as he blamed all the VA’s problems directly on President Trump.
It came as no surprise on Thursday evening when two of CNN’s prime-time hosts reacted to the mass shooting earlier that day at a bar in Thousand Oaks, California, by once again calling for stringent gun control and, despite their claims otherwise, mocking religion and the importance of prayer. The one-sided discussion began when Cuomo Prime Time host Chris Cuomo tossed to CNN Tonight Don Lemon, host of the next show, CNN Tonight, and by the end of the segment, Cuomo mocked those who'd raise questions about their viewpoints, stating that they would paint the two as “Bonnie and Clyde of Fake News.”
On Thursday's Cuomo Prime Time, CNN host Chris Cuomo ended his show with a commentary in which he complained about voters not makng gun control a higher priority when they voted a few days ago. He also declared that politicians who express "thoughts and prayers" after a mass shooting are mocking the victims.
On a special Sunday edition of Cuomo Prime Time, as CNN hosts Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon fretted over President Donald Trump sending troops to the southern border, and the possiblity that armed militias will also go into the area, to ward off the caravan of illegal immigrants, Cuomo actually suggested against all evidence that illegal immigrants are less inclined to commit crimes than legal immigrants, in addition to U.S. citizens.
It’s always funny when a member of the liberal media pretends that they’re not in lock step with the Democratic Party. During the later portion of CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time, incendiary CNN host Don Lemon proclaimed that he didn’t belong to any political party and was an “Independent” just like Democratic Party campaign star Oprah Winfrey.
During Tuesday’s edition of Cuomo Prime Time, host Chris Cuomo claimed that the Republican message for the midterms was “fear and loathing.” He accused Republicans of trying to “create a farce that (the migrants) are an invading force filled with dealers and murderers, whip as much xenophobia and conflict as he can.” He also slammed the President for calling the media “the enemy of the people,” saying “that is a phrase propagated by Stalin, used by Hitler.” Cuomo also recycled the tired talking points about how awful it was that President Trump called himself a nationalist and referred to Fox News as “state TV.”
The true threat to this country’s stability is not one ethnicity or people group, CNN host Don Lemon lectured at the end of Chris Cuomo’s show Monday night, before contradicting himself by stating that white conservative men are actually the biggest terror threat America faces.
During Wednesday’s edition of Cuomo Prime Time, host Chris Cuomo blasted President Trump, blaming him as well as conservative media for the mail bombs sent to his place of business and other influential figures in the Democratic Party in the preceding 48 hours. As Cuomo speculated about “what might have inspired” the rash of suspicious packages, he did not hesitate to place the blame at the feet of the President of the United States: “Our President cannot escape special scrutiny. He is at the head of the hate parade and way too often.”
While reporting from outside the evacuated Time Warner building on Wednesday afternoon, CNN hosts Chris Cuomo and Brian Stelter asserted without evidence on those behind the bombs and heavy usage of the word “but” that it’s the President and “right-wing commentators” and “outlets” who should look at themselves in the mirror.
It’s hard to say if it came from a disdain for the U.S. military, an extension of CNN’s ‘President Trump is literally a third world dictator’ narrative, or some other sinister motive. But in the middle of a segment on the “migrant” caravan making its way to the southern border during Monday’s Prime Time, host Chris Cuomo suggested that the military would end up shooting the over 7,000 people when they got to the border in order to turn them away.
During Friday’s edition of Cuomo Prime Time, host Chris Cuomo slammed President Trump for praising Montana Republican Congressman Greg Gianforte at a rally Thursday night held on behalf of Gianforte and Republican Senate candidate Matt Rosendale. Gianforte had plead guilty to assaulting a Guardian reporter as a Congressional candidate last year. The President brought up the body slamming at the rally, which led to Cuomo asking “why does Trump praise bullies?” and comparing the audience at the rally, who cheered at the mention of the body slamming, to the audiences at the Roman coliseum.
How again are the liberal media not a part of the opposition party? On Wednesday’s Cuomo Prime Time on CNN and Hardball on MSNBC, it just so happened that they ran nearly identical segments smearing Republicans for “employ[ing] scare tactics” and “fear-mongering” people into supporting the GOP at the polls. Thankfully, Brooke Baldwin wasn’t on-air during the 9:00 p.m. Eastern hour of CNN, as host and faux journalist Chris Cuomo mentioned the word “mob.”
