Hypocrisy will need to have been the principle course at CNN host Chris “Fredo” Cuomo’s Memorial Day barbeque, as a result of he was serving up leftovers throughout Tuesday’s version of Cuomo PrimeTime. Cuomo, the man who beclowned himself by twirling round large cotton swabs and flouted his coronavirus quarantine when he knew he was contaminated, bashed President Trump with accusations of enjoying video games and people who didn’t wish to put on masks once they went exterior. He additionally questioned the intelligence of the White Home press secretary.
It was every week in the past when Cuomo demonstrated how little he cared concerning the aged New Yorkers affected by his brother’s order to place coronavirus sufferers in nursing properties. As a substitute of holding Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) accountable, Chris pulled out some giant prop cotton swabs and mocked the scale of his brother’s nostril. And it has been well documented (together with in a police report), that Chris had left his home on Easter Sunday when he knew he was contaminated with the virus.
However these info didn’t cease him from kicking off his present by lashing out at President Trump and accuse him of “enjoying video games” whereas folks died. “Almost 100,000 People lifeless and this President is enjoying video games over Joe Biden sporting a masks,” he sneered. Including: “How concerning the clowns, who’re able to double down on the loss of life toll as a result of they wish to get their social gathering on for the vacation?”
“I might present you instance after instance after instance of individuals performing like fools,” he ranted a few minutes later. “Not simply, , not having any sense for their very own security however, the protection of others. And that is not loving distress. That’s embracing the mentality of caring for different folks.”
Actually? Was it the “mentality of caring for different folks” that led him to interrupt quarantine (spreading it to, no less than, his spouse and youngsters) and verbally assail a 65-year-old man?
Minutes later, Cuomo solid his ire on White Home Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, who as soon as took him to task from the rostrum, by questioning her intelligence and schooling.
Following a clip of McEnany ripping former Vice President Joe Biden over his mask-wearing, Cuomo condescendingly chided her use of a sure phrase. “Discrepancy, huge phrase,” he mentioned. “Received to verify that transcript concerning the time she spent at Harvard, I obtained to inform you, as a result of that’s simply dumb, what was simply mentioned there.”
Whereas we’re on that matter, please don’t take the recommendation of Cuomo’s spouse and tub in Clorox bleach, which was what she told people to do on her weblog.
At one level, he used a stereotypical dumb-sounding voice when answering a query as McEnany and had the nerve to accuse her of “poison politics. Us and them. Masks are dumb. Going out in the course of the pandemic with no masks. Yeah, have enjoyable. That is loopy city.”
And Cuomo ought to know so much about “poison politics” since he is lengthy trafficked in it. Simply days in the past, he suggested Trump’s goal was to not save lives, however cheapen the worth of life in America. He also accused Fox News of being “okay with 10,000 extra lifeless, particularly from the “brown working-class.”
After insinuating that Republican conference delegates had been unintelligent as effectively, he continued his attack towards Republican-controlled Florida. “What number of of them will then journey again to communities, throughout this nation, similar to occurred in Spring Break in Florida.”
Governor Ron DeSantis has dealt with the pandemic much better than Cuomo’s brother, and the numbers proved it. Current analysis confirmed that New York was the state that seeded many of the outbreaks throughout the nation, not Florida. He was once more making an attempt to deflect for his brother.
