‘Not even close’: CNN’s Chris Cuomo hammers Corey Lewandowski for comparing Trump’s nasty behavior to reporters
On Friday, former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski told CNN’s Chris Cuomo that reporters should change their behavior when asking questions to President Donald Trump.
In light of CNN winning a lawsuit against the president, Cuomo said that decorum must start at the top.
Cuomo said that journalist behaviors “don’t’ even come close” to the way Trump behaves.
“This man has covered the White House for a long time and he says he believes decorum should take place in the press room,” Lewandowski said.
“Starts at the top,” Cuomo said. “This president made a practice of disrespecting anyone he doesn’t like. There’s no one in that press room who comes close to addressing the president of the United States the way he addresses anyone he doesn’t like.”
Cuomo added, “How sad that the press has to be mindful not to play down to the standard of the President of the United States?”
