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 Organization boasts about India towers just days after Eric Trump says family doesn’t do international business
The Trump Organization undermined Eric Trump's lie about the president's family ending its international business dealings.
President Donald Trump's second son falsely claimed last week to Fox News host Laura Ingraham that he and his siblings "got out of all international business" after their father took office.
"The difference between us and Hunter (Biden) is, when my father became commander in chief of this country, we got out of all international business," Eric Trump said.
However, the Trump Organization run by Eric Trump and his older brother Donald Trump Jr. sent out a tweet Monday morning promoting the Trump Towers in Pune, India.
Trump struggles to regain his footing after a week from hell leaves the White House in turmoil
Donald Trump has had some bad weeks in office, but rarely has the US president seen one as difficult as the week ending Sunday, with members of both parties as well as US diplomats rebelling over his Syria and Ukraine policies, while a public uproar forced him to beat a late-night retreat over his choice of a Trump golf resort to host next year's G7 meeting.
The week began with Trump's stunning announcement -- over Twitter -- that he was pulling American troops out of Syria and abandoning their Kurdish allies as Turkey prepared for what seemed sure to be a bloody invasion. The blast of criticism from Republican lawmakers had no precedent during Trump's time in office.
