CNN’s Chris Cuomo is at it again.
He attempted to debunk Trump’s claim that you can’t overhear the person on the other end of someone else’s phone call by pulling a stunt with his own phone on the air.
It backfired, big time.
It all started with this Trump tweet:
I have been watching people making phone calls my entire life. My hearing is, and has been, great. Never have I been watching a person making a call, which was not on speakerphone, and been able to hear or understand a conversation. I’ve even tried, but to no avail. Try it live!

CNN Attempt to Prove Trump Wrong Fails Epically
CNN anchor Chris Cuomo unsuccessfully tried to prove President Donald Trump wrong about the mechanics of telephones Thursday, humiliating himself on live TV.
“Very interesting theory from our president,” Cuomo said, starting a phone call with his mother. “He’s never been able to hear a phone call when it wasn’t on speakerphone—from anybody. So let’s just play with that for a second. Mom can you hear me?”
Cuomo then fumbled through an attempted conversation between him, his mother, and CNN correspondent Dana Bash, without speaker phone on. Nobody could hear anything from the phone.
“Mom? Mom? She probably can’t hear me,” he said.
Then he turned on speakerphone and asked again, and his mother said, “I hear you.” But when he turned speakerphone off, they went back to not being able to hear each other, just as Trump said would happen.

Is Cuomo capable of feeling shame?

CNN has devolved into a farce.
