Cuomo: Dems ‘Not Lying’ Like Trump, Scott ‘Carrying Water’ for Him


Shortly after CNN’s coverage of the first night of the Republican National Convention ticked over into the wee hours of Tuesday morning, network clowns Chris “Fredo” Cuomo and Don Lemon took over to continue the nonsense. Just prior to a commercial break, Cuomo suggested that the Democratic convention didn’t need to be fact-checked because they were “not lying” like President Trump. He also continued CNN’s insistence on using racist undertones.

As the duo freaked out about the Trump campaign’s tactic of calling out how the radical left wanted to defund and dismantle police departments, Fredo (who has lied about his nickname being a racial slur for Italians) claimed that the Democrats were not prolific liars (Click “expand”):

CHRIS CUOMO: And, yeah, you can fact-check it to death. We could fact check this convention all night. People are saying, “you didn’t fact-check the Democrats.” They are not lying, the way Trump does.

Do politicians lie?

DON LEMON: Yes.

CUOMO: Of course. Do both parties engage in it?

Yes. I’ll give you the full Guilfoyle! But not like Donald Trump. Nobody lies the way this man does, has, and will, that I’ve ever seen in politics. So, he’s lying to you.

LEMON: He’s lying. He is lying.

“And these people are all his echo. I mean, one’s his son. You know, the other one is his son’s girlfriend,” Cuomo huffed, lashing out at Donald Trump Jr. and former prosecutor Kimberly Guilfoyle.

 

 

Belittling Guilfoyle as just the girlfriend of the President’s son was an extremely sexist remark. She actually had a successful career as a district attorney in Los Angeles and San Francisco, California. It was a much more successful career in law than Cuomo’s, hence why he’s doing CNN now. That’s not to mention her time as a popular host on Fox News Channel.

The derogatory comments continued moments later when Cuomo set his sights on South Carolina Senator Tim Scott (R). “But Tim Scott. You know, look. They’re carrying water for him. You know, Tim Scott was very careful about what he didn’t mention,” he sneered.

It was the same kind of racist undertones CNN disgustingly lobbed earlier in the night, when senior political reporter Nia-Malika Henderson accused Scott and Ambassador Nikki Haley of being racial tokens for a white party.

All of a sudden, Donald Trump is his best friend but he all but avoided it. I think maybe he went to maybe a South Carolina caucus or something or a few things,” Lemon added, speaking about Scott and Trump’s relationship. The two went off about how Trump was a racist.

The juxtaposition of Scott and accusations of racism served to suggest Scott was fine with it.

CHRIS CUOMO: And, yeah, you can fact-check it to death. We could fact check this convention all night. People are saying, “you didn’t fact-check the Democrats.” They are not lying, the way Trump does.

Do politicians lie?

DON LEMON: Yes.

CUOMO: Of course. Do both parties engage in it?

Yes. I’ll give you the full Guilfoyle! But not like Donald Trump. Nobody lies the way this man does, has, and will, that I’ve ever seen in politics. So, he’s lying to you.

LEMON: He’s lying. He is lying. And it’s —

CUOMO: And these people are all his echo. I mean, one’s his son. You know, the other one is his son’s girlfriend. You know, so, okay.

But Tim Scott. You know, look. They’re carrying water for him. You know, Tim Scott was very careful about what he didn’t mention. His personal story is compelling.

LEMON: That he — that he — well, he’s very careful about what he didn’t mention.

CUOMO: That’s right.

LEMON: And that he all but avoided the 2016 convention. Why?

All of a sudden, Donald Trump is his best friend but he all but avoided it. I think maybe he went to maybe a South Carolina caucus or something or a few things.

[Crosstalk]

CUOMO: But that happens when Don Lemon runs against Chris Cuomo and then Chris gets the ticket and Don says look, he’s our best bet.

LEMON: Tim Scott?

CUOMO: But what I’m saying is Don Lemon — we’ve never heard Don Lemon say, “look, don’t vote for Chris Cuomo not just because of the policy. This guy, he is a lying demon, who is going to hell.”

That’s what Lindsey Graham called him. You know, Ted Cruz called him a pathological liar and a person of no morality. You know, these people knew who Trump was. And now, they’re pretending it’s okay. It’s a tough sell.

LEMON: Lindsey Graham called him racist and a lot more things. And a lot of other people, who are now his best friend.

But we will talk about that more. We have a whole lot to get to. A whole lot of what we heard at the Republican National Convention tonight. It was just plain dishonest. It really was. We’ve got a lot to fact check. That’s next.
