I logged on to Twitter today and one of the first things I noticed was that “Chris Cuomo” was trending, with thousands of posts being written to discuss what leftists were calling an “epic rant” from him Wednesday night about the photo President Trump posted to his Instagram yesterday of him sitting in the Oval Office with various Goya Foods products on his desk in a show of support for Goya CEO Bob Unanue.

Unanue has been under attack from Rep. Alexandia Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and other Democrats who launched a Goya boycott after he expressed praise for Trump Thursday during a Rose Garden ceremony announcing the White House’s “Hispanic Prosperity Initiative.”

For those who missed it, here’s the photo Trump posted:

Predictably, the Usual Suspects on the left and in the media went bonkers, as they did when Trump’s daughter Ivanka posted a photo of herself Tuesday night holding a Goya Foods canned good product.

Not to be outdone, Cuomo devoted several minutes last night to the topic, feigning outrage over Trump taking time out in the middle of a pandemic to “hawk products.” Slamming what he claimed were Trump’s “pandemic priorities”, Cuomo melted down, calling it “bull sh*t” that the country didn’t have time for:

“You tell me how a president, in the middle of a pandemic, has got time for this b——-. Are you kidding me? Hawking products?” Cuomo asked, with the expletive airing unedited. He added, “Resolute desk! This is what he’s resolute about.”

Questioning the president’s “pandemic priorities” on “Cuomo Prime Time,” the CNN host showed the viral photo of presidential adviser and first daughter Ivanka Trump holding up a can of Goya black beans earlier this week, which prompted concerns about whether she was using her government position to endorse a private business.

[…]

“On your dime, in the middle of a pandemic, they’re selling beans,” said Cuomo, who recovered from covid-19 in the spring. “Are you kidding me? Seriously? Seriously?”

Watch:

Many Twitter users including yours truly were more than eager to point out the major inconsistencies in Cuomo’s rant:

Chris Cuomo is the last person – I mean the LAST person – who should be pointing fingers at the supposed “pandemic priorities” of others, especially when you consider just not just his willful ignorance of his brother Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s well-documented leadership failures during the pandemic crisis in his state but also the ignorance of the rest of his colleagues at CNN, some of who apparently only recently discovered that New York was the gateway for the coronavirus’s spread throughout the entire country.

Two words for Chris Cuomo right now: SIT. DOWN.

By the way, about that Goya “boycott”: It’s failing – big time.
