CNN host Chris Cuomo got into a heated battle with the Republican Senate candidate of Virginia Wednesday evening.
Pro-Confederate Corey Stewart won the Republican nomination for Senate in Virginia Tuesday evening. President Donald Trump backed him even though he has past supported and associated with anti-Semites and those with white supremacist view points.
“I won the primary because I’m a strong supporter of President Trump. He’s improving the economy, the lowest unemployment rate since the early 1970s. And now a big success in the foreign policy front as we remove the nuclear threat from North Korea,” Stewart said.
Cuomo called out Stewart for a laundry list of every racist and bigoted comment or action the Virginia candidate has ever taken.
“That’s why Trump may have won then, but I’m talking about you. You seem to be cottoning to a very specific brand of humanity. You have a well pronounced post by saying that you agree with and that you like people who push ugly, bigoted, intolerant, and racist notions,” Cuomo said.
Stewart argued back saying that Cuomo was the extreme left and always played the race card.
“You claim you play the race card every time because it’s the only thing you have,” he said.
For each example of racism Cuomo brought up, Stewart tried to explain himself by attacking Cuomo with unfounded allegations and without any proof.
Ultimately, Cuomo had enough and ended the interview. “This interview is done,” he said.
“You’re too much, Chris,” Stewart replied with a snide clap back at Cuomo.
“It’s about the truth and owning what things are, especially when the president wants to get behind someone like you,” Cuomo explained.
“Good entertainment on CNN,” was all Stewart could say in another attack.

Trump slurs media as ‘fake and corrupt’ for disputing his claims about Elton John
President Donald Trump hyped his claims about selling out a New Hampshire rally in a new attack on the news media.
The president insisted Monday that he enjoyed "massive overflow crowds" at his rally last week at SNHU Arena in Manchester, and slurred journalists as "fake and corrupt" for reporting the venue wasn't filled to capacity.
The Fake and Corrupt Media is sooo bad for our Country, The Enemy of the People! https://t.co/GPiklem0u1

Trump’s presidency is backfiring as the public grows more and more opposed to his views: report
Watching clips from recent rallies in red states, it is obvious that President Donald Trump continues to be wildly popular among his hardcore far-right base. But that base is by no means representative of the United States on the whole. And journalist David A. Graham, in a report for The Atlantic, explains that not only is Trump failing to expand his base — he is, more and more, out of touch with public opinion.
“Recent polling shows that Donald Trump has managed to reshape American attitudes to a remarkable extent on a trio of his key issues: race, immigration and trade,” Graham observes. “There’s just one catch: the public is turning against Trump’s views.”
