CNN’s Chris Cuomo recently defended the violent far left group known as Antifa. He did it on the air and you can watch the segment here. One of his recent guests called him out for this and not only did he deny it but he got a little testy about it.
The Daily Wire reports:
WATCH: CNN’s Cuomo Melts Down After Being Called Out On His Own Show For Defending Antifa
On his show Wednesday, Cuomo invited on Steve Cortes, former Hispanic Advisory Council member to President Donald Trump, to discuss Trump’s warning to evangelical leaders that if the GOP loses in November, there will be “violence” from the left. “They will overturn everything that we’ve done and they’ll do it quickly and violently, and violently,” Trump said. “There’s violence. When you look at Antifa and you look at some of these groups — these are violent people.”
When Cuomo asked Cortes if Trump should apologize for “stok[ing] that kind of fear” about potential violence, Cortes argued that Trump isn’t stoking fear, but rather recognizing that the “very unfortunate reality in America is that political violence is on the rise, on both the right and the left.”
Cuomo clearly wasn’t satisfied with that response, again expressing alarm at Trump’s statement that there are “violent people” on the left.
