On Monday, CNN’s Chris Cuomo bashed Fox News host Tucker Carlson after racist and homophobic slurs he made were unearthed by Media Matters.
Cuomo said that people should not wait around for Carlson to apologize or step down from his position.
“Apologize? Are you kidding? They’re not going to apologize. Stop asking. They want the press divide. They want to attack what most want to protect, and ironically, you give them attention for doing something wrong, and they use that attention to say it more,” Cuomo said.
“[Carlson] uses your negative attention to play the victim. Big boy will say ‘the left is coming at me. It isn’t nice.’ At the same time, he would strip away the sensitivity toward those who are actually victimized. Hypocrisy often goes hand in hand with harshness. Few bullies can withstand what they dish out to others,” Cuomo added.
“This BS is like currency for them. They get paid for this. The base likes its heroes. They’ve seen this president make it to the White House by in part by doing the same thing,” Cuomo said.

Fiona Hill blasts Rudy Giuliani for blurting out ‘incendiary remarks’ on TV that came ‘back to haunt us’
Former National Security Council official Dr. Fiona Hill testified to Congress Thursday that what Rudy Giuliani was doing in Ukraine was dangerous to the United States and that she knew there would be consequences.
Staff counsel Daniel Goldman asked about who was involved in the conspiracy theories surrounding Ukraine. He asked about what John Bolton was saying about Giuliani and his "interest" in Ukraine.
"It was part of a conversation about the things that Mr. Giuliani was saying quite frequently in public," Dr. Hill said. "We saw them often or saw him often on television making these statements and I had also already brought to Ambassador Bolton's attention, the attacks, smear campaign against Ambassador [Marie] Yovanovitch and expressed great regret about how this was unfolding and, in fact, the shameful way in which Ambassador Yovanovitch was being smeared and attacked and I asked if there was anything we could do about it."
David Holmes explains how Trump’s conspiracy theory on Ukraine serves Putin’s interests
House impeachment witnesses Fiona Hill and David Holmes explained what Russia's president Vladimir Putin gained from Republican conspiracy theories blaming Ukraine for 2016 election interference.
President Donald Trump asked Ukraine's president to investigate those claims, which are disputed by U.S. intelligence services, in addition to announcing a probe of Democratic rival Joe Biden -- and the two impeachment witnesses explained how that helped Putin.
"First of all, to deflect from the allegations of Russian interference," testified Holmes, who served three years in the U.S. embassy in Moscow. "Second of all, to drive a wedge between the United States and Ukraine, which Russia wants to essentially get back into its atmosphere of influence. Thirdly, to besmirch Ukraine and is leadership and degrade and erode support for Ukraine from other key partners in Europe and elsewhere."
Viewers astonished as Fiona Hill rips apart the falsehoods spread by ‘bloody nitwit’ Devin Nunes on live TV
Fiona Hill knocked down conspiracy theories about Ukraine spread by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) and other Republican lawmakers, and impeachment viewers were astonished by her thorough debunking.
The former National Security Council adviser testified that claims pinning blame on Ukraine for 2016 election interference absolves Russia and serves its president Vladimir Putin's interests, and undermines U.S. national security.
“The impact of the successful 2016 Russian campaign remains evident today,” Hill testified in her opening statement. “Our nation is being torn apart. Truth is questioned. Our highly professional and expert career Foreign Service is being undermined.”
