CNN’s Chris Cuomo lost it tonight over Trump taking off his mask at the White House when returning. He said the only feeling he has left is outrage and spent the beginning few minutes of his show ranting about Trump ‘propaganda’. I won’t bore you with the longer version, just watch the short one:
Chris Cuomo says he won’t play the president’s White House “propaganda” video on CNN.
“How much bullshit do you need in your life?”

Here’s more if you want to torture yourself:
“This President is a walking lie,” says @ChrisCuomo, detailing Trump returning to the White House and removing his mask.

Trump was outside when he took the mask off with no one around him. Then he proceeded to create a video with one or two film people who looked like they were wearing N95 masks as best as I could tell. And they looked socially distanced, at least from the distance the camera was shooting. Who cares if they recorded that video twice?
If Trump was holding meetings with people while sick with covid and wearing no mask, then they might have a point. But this outrage to me seems way overblown, almost too overblown. It’s like they are trying to invent another fake crisis to wind people up and make sure everyone keeps on hating Trump, so that he gets not sympathy votes a month from now during the election. This is all about the election.
And just to remind you:
Chris Cuomo was diagnosed with COVID-19, broke quarantine, didn’t wear a mask, put others in danger, got into a fight with a cyclist who called him out, then pretended nothing ever happened and threw a party when his “quarantine” was over. https://t.co/YtCZMXm8gR
