CNN host Chris Cuomo is a gift for the right. Over the past few years, CNN has given him the go-ahead to blur the line between journalist and opinion commentator, so he’s been free to tell us all what he really thinks — despite the word “journalist” still being part of his job description.
Along with fellow CNN personality Don Lemon, Cuomo has become one of the biggest faces in the “NPC” crowd — or “non-playable characters.” His program seems dedicated to reacting to President Donald Trump’s Twitter feed, and proclaiming the end of the American republic every time the President so much as sneezes in the wrong direction.
So, it’s not surprising that Cuomo would pull all of the stops to make himself appear to be as much of a victim as possible. And let’s clear something up: if you see a media personality that you don’t like — especially when they appear to be off-duty and enjoying their personal life — don’t do what you see in the video below. It’s a waste of everyone’s time, and the brief social media clout you’ll receive from berating them isn’t going to last as long as you might think it will.
But, two things can be true at once: the person Chris Cuomo freaked out on could be a jerk, and Cuomo can be an idiot at the same time.
Threatening to throw someone down the stairs isn’t exactly proportional to being made fun of for being the “stupid brother” from The Godfather. Proclaiming movie character names to be racial slurs after spending years telling the same joke about other people sort of proves this guy’s point.
