CNN’s Chris Cuomo slammed Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) after he said that President Donald Trump’s violent rhetoric doesn’t matter.
Multiple bomb threats were sent to CNN and prominent Democrats offices this week. Gaetz condemned the action of the bomb threats but failed to call out Trump for actions and remarks following.
“There is nothing that president said that would have been enough,” Gaetz said.
Cuomo then asked why Trump couldn’t have just acted more presidential.
“It doesn’t matter, ” Gaetz said.
“It matters a lot when the bomb gets sent to you,” Cuomo responded.

‘I can’t believe what I see’: Ex-Russian foreign minister dumbstruck after Trump cedes American dominance
During an appearance on MSNBC this Thursday, former Russian foreign minister Andrei Kozyrev commented on the "meltdown of American diplomacy" in the wake of President Trump's withdrawal of US troops from northeast Syria, effectively green-lighting Turkey's invasion of the region.
According to Kozyrev, Trump's recent foreign policy decisions "plays right into [Putin's] hands," adding that it's clear now why Putin's "cohorts were celebrating when Trump was elected."
"Russia is in support of [Syrian President Bashar al-Assad] who is losing ... and who is isolated there [in a war] where there is no end," Kozyrev said. "It's a dead-end war there which they are waging, and all off a sudden [Trump] is coming [Putin's] way from the American side."
‘Get over it’: Trump’s chief of staff reveals Ukraine quid pro quo — but insists it’s just ‘politics’ as usual
White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney admitted that President Donald Trump held up Ukraine aid to pressure the country to investigate a conspiracy theory.
Mulvaney, who is also the White House budget director, told reporters Thursday that Trump's desire to investigate his belief that a DNC computer server was hidden in Ukraine was part of the reason congressionally approved military aid was held up.
However, he insisted that did not represent a quid pro quo arrangement.
"We do that all the time, get over it," Mulvaney said. "Politics is going to be involved in foreign policy, elections do have consequences."
