Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's CNN Newsroom to debate whether there is an equivalence between Minnesota Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar blaming Jewish donors for Congress's support of Israel, and past comments made by several Republicans, liberal CNN contributor Peter Beinart smeared Israel by accusing the Jewish state of practicing "state-sponsored bigotry" against Palestinian Arabs in the West Bank and "violating human rights."
Showing how little respect and general goodwill they have for the humanity of Trump supporters, CNN hosts Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon hurled more venom between their respective shows on Tuesday toward those who aren’t onboard with The Resistance because, if not, you’re at minimum endorsing bigotry and racism. A quick NewsBusters search of Lemon items would rate his claim as pants on fire.Of course, at no point in their seven-minute-plus discussion did either mention the growing problem on the left.
On Tuesday's Deadline: White House, MSNBC host and former Republican Nicolle Wallace was in denial about the existence of racism within her new home on the left as she ridiculously claimed that "there isn't a strain of racism on the left." Her comments came during a discussion of Iowa Republican Congressman Steve King's flirtations with white nationalists that have drawn condemnation from fellow Republicans.
On Sunday's PoliticsNation on MSNBC, during the show's regular "Gotcha" segment, host Al Sharpton was imagining racist dog whistles as he complained about "unmitigated, racially-tinged cruelty" from Congressman Steve King, and suggested that those who think like the Iowa Republican are "evil."
On Wednesday's New Day on CNN, during a discussion of how to pay for President Donald Trump's proposed border wall, co-host Alisyn Camerota seemed taken aback that Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King suggested shifting money from the food stamp program to help pay for the wall. Camerota fretted: "You want to take food from people that are s -- the people who are on the lowest rung in terms of the nation's safety net and their children -- in terms of food stamps, you're happy to take -- you're willing to take money from them to build the 1.6 or to give the 1.6 billion to the border wall?"
On CNN's New Day Tuesday, co-host Chris Cuomo recapped his interview on the show yesterday with Iowa Representative Steve King as the Republican congressman "just trying to provoke conversation." This comes in the midst of King facing backlash over a tweet, agreeing with far-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders.
On Tuesday's New Day, as Chris Cuomo debated Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King over the issue of ObamaCare repeal, the CNN host seemed unaware that technically having health insurance "coverage" on paper does not always guarantee that one will actually receive the health care one needs if a patient is unable to find a doctor or other health care provider to actually do the work. After Rep. King argued, "you could have coverage, you can have a cadillac plan, but if they won't take your policy, if you're on Medicare that's not being honored, if you're on Medicaid that's not being honored, If they won't accept your policy, then you don't have coverage," Cuomo seemed confused as he responded: "Wait. Who's 'they'? If you have coverage from a company, then you're getting care. What do you mean, 'If they don't accept the policy'? How does that work?"
When Iowa Republican Representative and Donald Trump supporter Steve King appeared as a guest on Wednesday's New Day to discuss Trump's plan to use the tax code to assist families with children, host Chris Cuomo managed to redirect the conversation off to a discussion of gay rights for a significant portion of the interview. The CNN host insisted that research shows that homosexual couples "are doing just as well if not better than" families with both a father and mother in raising children, and declared: "There is not a reason to believe that you have to have a man and woman to do that...."
Two days after a tense exchange on MSNBC involving race and American history, American Urban Radio Networks correspondent April Ryan returned to the network’s set on Wednesday night to declare her opponent from Monday in Republican Congressman Steve King (Iowa) is “stunted mentally to be honest with you.”
As Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King appeared as a guest on Tuesday's New Day to discuss the Orlando night club terror attack, CNN host Chris Cuomo pressed him over the issue of gun laws and also over whether Republicans should be making a point of specifying that it was a gay club that was targeted when speaking of the attack.
The two also got into a debate over whether political correctness has made it more difficult to head off Islamic terrorism by pressuring people into keeping silent about suspicions toward Muslim acquaintances.
On Tuesday's New Day on CNN, as co-host Chris Cuomo debated Republican Rep. Steve King on whether Syrian refugees should be allowed into the U.S., the CNN host absurdly suggested that barring refugees might "help ISIS" because it would be "playing into ISIS's hands" by "showing that you are against these people who are desperate."
As he closed the interview for breaking news, he also got in a last-minute dig as he suggested that opponents of bringing refugees to America were "blaming the victims."
On Wednesday's New Day, CNN's Chris Cuomo again carried water for the left's social agenda as he interviewed Republican Congressman Steve King. When Rep. King contended that "no one who voted to ratify that Fourteenth Amendment gave...a thought" to the Supreme Court writing "same-sex marriage rights into that," Cuomo retorted that "you could say the same thing about race and anti-miscegenation laws." He later wondered, "How does this [decision] hurt you that it's fueling this outrage among conservatives and Christians?"
