CNN host Chris Cuomo is doing his absolute best to make excuses for the massive spike in homicide rates across the nation. Anyone with two brain cells to rub together knows exactly why it’s happening, but Cuomo has a different excuse.
It’s the Republicans. More accurately, it’s the Republicans reopening their states.
During Wednesday’s show, Cuomo said he was going to drop some “troof on their roof” after playing a clip of White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany pointing to New York’s skyrocketing gun violence. The CNN host proceeded to dismiss the Black Lives Matter protests and calls for defunding the police and focused squarely on the fact that people are getting out about now that lockdown orders have been lifted in various states and have just started killing each other as a result.
