On Tuesday, CNN’s Chris Cuomo hammered former President Donald Trump’s former campaign advisor Michael Caputo.
Caputo tried to blame the media for President Trump siding with Vladimir Putin during a joint press conference on Monday.
“I don’t think the president is the only one in this political system in the United States that’s guilty of conflating the two issues of meddling and collusion,” Caputo said. “I think the media does that constantly. I think the resistance does it constantly. I think they do it because they’ve kind of cracked the code.”
He said that the media was at the summit in Helsinki to asked President Trump a “gotcha” question.
“They know it really sets the president off, and the media didn’t go to Helsinki to find out what’s going to happen with Ukraine and Crimea or Syria or even nuclear proliferation or nuclear modernization. They went there with a gotcha question and they got exactly what they were looking for, and it was disappointing for me,” Caputo said.
Cuomo grilled him for attempting to place blame on the media instead of Trump
“Hold on. What’s disappointing is you are excusing what the president said as if he were baited. That he was set up by all these others who know how to push his buttons,” Cuomo said. “He was on the world stage next to another man who everyone wants to antagonize also. Hey threw his own country under the bus. Don’t blame it on the question, he is the president of the United States.”
