CNN is notorious for being the largest fake news network in America.
But with just one comment, this CNN anchor took things out of the fire and into the frying pan.
What he said on the air could ruin CNN forever.
CNN is a laughing stock across the country.
Once one of the largest news networks in America, CNN’s ratings have been in freefall for years, while their coverage of President Trump and his supporters over the past three years have displayed a level of liberal bias unseen in the history of the mainstream media.
It’s part of the reason CNN is failing, because Americans refuse to watch a network that does little more than bash President Trump on a regular basis.
But CNN’s problems just got a whole lot worse.
And it’s all because of what one anchor said about President Trump’s base of supporters.
The Daily Caller reports, “CNN’s Chris Cuomo claimed Friday that President Donald Trump’s dedicated voting base was ‘mostly middle-aged angry white males.’ During a conversation about the possibility of impeachment, Cuomo wondered how the process would impact voters across the board.”
“The trump base (mostly middle aged angry white males) are solidly behind him, but what about the burst of younger than boomers voters?” Cuomo tweeted. “Centrists? Independents? Will the process super-motivate the left? Of course this could just come down to doing the job congress must do.”
Cuomo just crossed a red line no one thought was possible, even for a CNN host.
While CNN had been very vocal about their criticisms of President Trump for years, anchors were always trying to straddle the line between outright bias, and implicit bias.
And in just a few words, Chris Cuomo decided to cross that line with reckless abandon.
“Renewed calls for impeachment in the wake of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s report and subsequent address at the Justice Department have left many asking the same questions,” adds the Daily Caller.
“The most recent Harvard CAPS/Harris poll survey suggests that Cuomo is right to ask that question. Taken after Mueller’s statement Wednesday, the poll found that a plurality of Americans (43%) favored no action against Trump and fewer (37%) supported impeachment.”
Those numbers get even worse for Cuomo’s arguments however.
“Additionally, 68% said that Democrats should accept Mueller’s finding that there was no evidence of collusion, 65% said that they should accept Attorney General William Barr’s conclusion that there was no obstruction of justice, 63% claimed that continued investigations into the president were hurting the country and 58% were ready to move on from the Russia investigation,” concludes the Daily Caller.
The other problem with Cuomo’s statement is how ignorant it is.
Attacking President Trump’s supporters based on race, gender or age is wrong.
And what’s more, it shows just how ignorant Cuomo really is. Trump was elected to office because Americans are tired of being divided based on these things, while liberal news anchors like Cuomo continue to do so on a daily basis.
