CNN’s Chris Cuomo blisters ‘Morning Joe’ rivals — and calls them Trump’s ‘transition spokesmen’

Published

MSNBC’s Morning Joe crew has done a lot to cozy up to President-elect Donald Trump since his shocking election win, and CNN’s Chris Cuomo is calling them out over it.

The witnesses so far have simply affirmed what the written record demonstrates amply.

Why saying ‘OK boomer’ at work is considered age discrimination – but millennial put-downs aren’t

The phrase “OK boomer” has become a catch-all put-down that Generation Zers and young millennials have been using to dismiss retrograde arguments made by baby boomers, the generation of Americans who are currently 55 to 73 years old.

Though it originated online and primarily is fueling memes, Twitter feuds and a flurry of commentary, it has begun migrating to real life. Earlier this month, a New Zealand lawmaker lobbed the insult at an older legislator who had dismissed her argument about climate change.
