On Tuesday's Cuomo Prime Time, liberal CNN political commentator Van Jones -- also host of his own CNN show on weekends -- tried to put a positive spin on perennial sex harasser and former President Bill Clinton suggesting that it used to be acceptable to subject women to sexual behavior "against their will" after CNN host Chris Cuomo brought up Clinton's recent interview on PBS.
Tuesday, while appearing on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time, left-wing political commentator and weekend host Van Jones lept to the defense of Bill Clinton, as the former President embarrassed himself yet again. In an interview with PBS while on his current book tour, Clinton said this:
Appearing on Wednesday night’s Cuomo Prime Time, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tore into host Chris Cuomo. Sanders blasted Cuomo and his network for not covering the Veterans Affairs Reform Bill signed earlier that day.
Tuesday marked the second edition of Chris Cuomo’s new show, Cuomo Prime Time. It’s quickly becoming clear that the show will just be another platform for liberal anger on CNN. Anthony Scaramucci, former White House Press Secretary, joined Cuomo for a discussion about Donald Trump rescinding the invitation of the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles to visit the White House. Scaramucci took the opportunity to call out Cuomo for not highlighting President Trump’s recent and meaningful victories.
During the first formal episode of CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time (following two trial runs), host Chris Cuomo engaged in a lengthy back and forth with former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, now a member of President Trump's legal team. Part of that discussion focused on Trump’s pardons of Dinesh D'Souza, Scooter Libby, and Joe Arpaio and his potential pardon of Martha Stewart. According to Cuomo, “It seems like you want to send the message lying is okay. Lying is okay sometimes. That’s why we’re pardoning these people.”
On Wednesday's Cuomo Prime Time on CNN, host Chris Cuomo ended the show with a commentary in which he complained that "there's a lot of bad info about immigration out there," but then he injected his own misinformation by wrongly claiming that "undocumented folks commit less crime than the rest of us." And the the next morning on New Day, he finally acknowledged the child abuse accusations against a Polish-born doctor that CNN has been preoccupied with who is in danger of deportation.
Early Thursday night, the White House released the parameters of an immigration plan being sent to Congress, which included legalizating 1.8 million illegal immigrants. However, this dramatic attempt at a compromise fell on deaf ears at CNN. From 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Eastern, CNN devoted an astonishing 11 times more coverage to the Trump-Russia probe, discrediting the Peter Strzok-Lisa Page scandal, and obsessing over porn star Stormy Daniels than the immigration plan.
While the media loves when Democrats “burn” the president with a clever comment, they can’t handle it when he does the same back at them.
During an interview with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders (I) on Thursday’s Cuomo Prime Time, CNN host Chris Cuomo’s rage boiled over as attacked his guest for not doing more to stop President Trump and the GOP agenda. “He's cleaning your clock on the policy matters,” he yelled, clearly agitated with the string of victories and good news for Trump and GOP.
Sparks flew during Wednesday’s edition of CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time when White House adviser Kellyanne Conway sparred with rude and demeaning host Chris Cuomo as they discussed the news of the day. But during one section, in particular, Conway took Cuomo to task for twisting the facts about the administration’s response to the opioid crisis and the border wall’s effectiveness on drug trafficking.
Somehow, CNN thought it’d be an excellent idea to give New Day co-host Chris Cuomo a week-long tryout for a possible primetime show. Needless to say, Cuomo made a fool of himself on Wednesday, pushing fake news about climate change and alleging storms like Hurricane Harvey are happening “every other year.”
In the midst of the horrific devastation Texans are experiencing due to Hurricane Harvey, CNN New Day host Chris Cuomo can’t stop politicizing the situation. He has spent the entire week badgering Texas Congressmen like Ted Cruz for not voting on a massive, pork-laden relief bill for Hurricane Sandy back in 2013. Ironically, Cuomo’s most often repeated phrase? Republicans “played politics” with Sandy, something it’s reasonable to say Cuomo is now doing himself with Harvey.
