On CNN Wednesday, anchor Chris Cuomo lost his temper over President Donald Trump’s false claim that children are “almost immune” to COVID-19 on Fox News in the morning.
“I know for a fact he knows not to say what he’s saying to you right there,” said Cuomo, himself a COVID-19 survivor. “And with our kids. Children have died from this virus. Do they usually? No. Do they die the way adults do? No, but that’s not the point. They are not immune. They get sick and infected. They generally have lighter or no symptoms, but after age 10, the best research we have at this point tells us they are just as likely to spread coronavirus as anyone else. And he knows it. I know he was told that. It is the best reckoning by his own task force.”
“Why would he lie to you about it?” said Cuomo. “Why would he put you in the position to expose your kid that way? How can we deal with a president who lies so much? Facebook removed one of his videos from his personal page because of what he said on state TV this morning, making these same BS claims that kids are almost immune. It violates their harmful COVID misinformation policy. What our president is putting out about children is so violative of their decency standard they pulled it. Think about that. Trump’s campaign account also posted the video on Twitter. Twitter made them delete it before they could retweet again.”
“They can’t even live up to the social media standards. How is he able to live up to the standard that we demand right now?” said Cuomo. “He violated their standards. He’s violating us, especially our kids.”
Trump apologist thinks president made ‘huge mistake’ by admitting he won’t peacefully give up power
A conservative who usually defends President Donald Trump admitted to CNN on Thursday that the president made a "huge mistake" when he refused to commit to having a peaceful transfer of power should he lose the 2020 election.
During a panel discussion on the president's latest controversial remarks about the upcoming election, liberal guest Bakari Sellers argued that Americans should be "very terrified" about Trump implicitly encouraging violence in the event that he loses.
CNN host uses Fox News doctor’s own words against him after he accuses Biden of taking amphetamine
President Donald Trump and his allies seem to realize that they've dug themselves a hole in attacking former Vice President Joe Biden as mentally unfit. With expectations so low, a Biden win in the first debates are almost assured, even with a Fox News host.
In a discussion Tuesday, Trump began to pivot away from his non-stop advertising attacking Biden's cognitive abilities and instead claim Biden is a "professional" who knows what he's doing.
"Maybe that would work if the president himself had not been saying this about Biden on repeat for the entirety of the campaign," said CNN host Brianna Keilar.
America under Trump is now an ‘object of pity’ throughout the world: Ex-White House official
Former Trump National Security Council staffer Fiona Hill told CNN's Jim Sciutto on Tuesday that the United States under President Donald Trump evokes "pity" from people around the world instead of respect.
In talking about Russia's efforts to sow division in the United States ahead of the 2020 presidential election, Hill told Sciutto that America's foreign adversaries don't have to do much to create fear and mistrust in America right now.
"So I have to say very bluntly to everybody who's watching and listening to this, we are increasingly an object of pity, including by our allies," she said. "They're shocked by how we eat ourselves alive with our divisions. We are creating this -- it is not the Russians or the Chinese!"
