CNN’s Chris Cuomo destroys conservative ex-prosecutor for implying Trump is right to attack the press for covering Russia

Chris Cuomo skeptical face

On Wednesday, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo clashed with Robert Ray, the former independent counsel who took over from Ken Starr, over President Donald Trump’s reaction to the Russia investigation — a conversation which grew heated when Ray suggested that Trump’s attacks on the press were justified.

“Chris, it’s human,” said Ray.

“Everything is fake unless he likes it,” said Cuomo sarcastically.

“Go back to George W. Bush,” said Ray. “You don’t think he suffered under the reality of the fact that the Democrats were essentially saying that it was a stolen election by the Supreme Court of the United States?”

“But he didn’t call all media liars and fakes and say the FBI was subverted by a deep state,” said Cuomo.

“That makes it difficult to govern,” said Ray. “And this president understands that attacks on him, they get to the question of undermining the legitimacy of his election, where it was an electoral college victory but not a popular vote victory. That’s a political reality.”

“As a guy who holds himself out as an integrity guy, a guy who gets invited on the show because you’re an integrity guy, you’re not going to really defend lying and calling everything that the media does fake and everything the Democrats do fake and subversive, just because you feel you’re under siege?”

“No, agreed,” said Ray, backtracking somewhat.

“Because that’s the problem with people on the right. You know what I mean? Everything he says is okay.”

“I am not prepared to say everything under the sun is a hoax,” admitted Ray. “I’ve tried to call them as I have seen them to be fair. I have said things with regard to the conduct of the investigation where I didn’t think things were fair.”

On Saturday, CNN anchor S.E. Cupp gave a passionate lecture about the sexism female politicians face during political campaigns.

The host read a quote from a "top" advisor to former Vice President Joe Biden.

“I don't know of anybody who has taken as sustained and vitriolic a negative pounding as Biden ...really the most vicious press I think anyone's experienced,” the Biden advisor told Politico.

"Come again? What's that now?" Cupp asked in disbelief.

"I think there are some women who beg to differ," she noted.

‘What was he talking about?’ CNN’s Angela Rye baffled by Joe Biden’s ‘victim-blaming’ rant about black families

The former executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus was baffled by an exchange during the third Democratic debate.

"I’ve seen a lot of criticism of former Vice President Joe Biden over this exchange," CNN's Jake Tapper said, playing a clip.

"What responsibility do you think that Americans need to take to repair the legacy of slavery in our country?" moderator Linsey Davis asked Biden on Thursday.

"We bring social workers into homes and parents to help them deal with how to raise their children. It is not they don’t want to help. They don’t know quite what to do. Play the radio. Make sure the television — excuse me make sure that you have the record player on at night, the phone —" Biden said.

A Pennsylvania man who voted for President Donald Trump in 2016 told CNN on Friday that he's bitterly disappointed in how he's seen no progress in manufacturing jobs returning to his community.

John Golomb, a retired steel worker who backed the president in 2016 because of his promises to bring back good paying jobs to the Rust Belt, explained to CNN that Trump gave his community false hope about an economic revival during his first presidential campaign.

"We had Donald Trump come here and profess about reviving American steel," he said. "That's just what all of us steelworkers wanted to hear!"
