‘This thing needs to end right now’: CNN’s Cuomo shuts down GOP senator whining about fake news

Published

on

CNN’s Chris Cuomo has grown very tired of Republicans shooting down any facts that go against their political messaging as “fake news.”

During a discussion with Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) about the Senate’s health care bill, the senator said that opponents of the GOP bill were intentionally using misinformation about the senate’s plan to drive public opposition.

“We need information, and the debate on this thing is completely distorted using incorrect information,” Johnson fumed.

Cuomo at this point stopped him dead in his tracks.

“You’re not suggesting that I’m using misleading information, right?” Cuomo asked him. “You let me know what I’m saying that is inaccurate. Because this whole ‘fake’ thing needs to end, and it needs to end right now. You tell me what I’m getting wrong, or we’ll deal with the number as the CBO is putting them out.”

Johnson quickly backed down.

“I’m not talking about you,” he said. “I’m talking about the fact that people don’t understand the [estimate that 22 million people would lose health care under the Senate GOP’s bill] was using the wrong baseline.”

President Donald Trump appears to be attacking Democrats, or the large number of parents across the country who are afraid to send their children back to school in the fall over concerns students could contract the coronavirus and get sick or die, or spread it to their families, friends, and teachers.

"Politics," according to the President, is the only reason "they" don't want to allow their children to go back to school.

In a rambling address at the White House Hispanic Prosperity Initiative, the President talked about "allowing those at lower risk such as young, and healthy – children in many cases the immune system is so powerful, so strong – but the young and the healthy to safely return to work and to school."
