With the plummet in ratings and struggle to find a consistent audience, Cuomo’s employer CNN has lost 23% of its total primetime average fans.
The numbers are falling fast!
You know how they say, curiosity kills the cat… Well despite the drop, CNN’s host Chris Cuomo was wondering if Americans were upset by the death of Mollie Tibbetts… and if they would be as upset if the alleged killer happened to be a “white American” instead of an illegal alien.
There have been multiple deaths related to illegal aliens including Tibbetts’, and Cuomo asked in reference, “I wonder if these sympathizers would be as full-throated about these tragedies if the killers were white citizens if the victims were not young white women. If that were the case, would we see a video like this from Trump today?”
But he didn’t stop there, he continued with the playing of a short video of President Trump talking about Tibbetts’s death. “Mollie Tibbetts was an incredible young woman who was permanently separated from her family,” Trump said in a video posted to his Twitter account Wednesday. “A person came in, from Mexico, illegally, and killed her. We need the wall, we need our immigration laws changed.”
Chris Cuomo and his remarks on the subject have accused the conservative media of having double standards. He feels the media isn’t playing out the truth when it comes to covering the deaths caused by illegal aliens compared to alleged police brutality cases.
According to breitbart,
The CNN host then compared the outrage over Tibbetts death to conspiracy theories surrounding DNC staffer Seth Rich’s murder.
“Seth Rich–remember him? His death, his murder, all about Democrat deviousness–until it wasn’t. Until the family said, ‘Stop doing this to us. There is no proof of what you’re saying. Go away.’ And once the political intrigue ran out of the story, did you see dogged coverage by the same people about what happened to Seth Rich?”
Of course, that comparison falls apart under basic scrutiny.
As Cuomo correctly notes, Rich’s murder was seized upon by conspiracy theorists who tried to insinuate some Democrat involvement, a theory for which no solid proof exists. But unlike the Seth Rich case, there are no conspiracy theories in the coverage of Tibbetts’ death–illegal alien Cristhian Bahena-Rivera has been arrested and charged by police.
Cuomo’s on-air lectures are now a regular part of his nightly show on CNN. He recently went on a monologue about how violent far-left groups like Antifa “are on the side of right” when fighting against “bigots.”
“The bigots are wrong to hit. Antifa or whomever — anarchists or malcontents or the misguided — they are also wrong to hit. But fighting hate is right. And in a clash between hate and those who oppose it, those who oppose it are on the side of right,” Cuomo said.
