With the revelation that federal investigators have been wanting into New York Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo’s corruption with state nursing residence deaths, and state Democrats setting the stage for a potential impeachment, CNN Prime Time host Chris “Fredo” Cuomo and CNN Tonight host Don Lemon have been determined to make Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz’s unhealthy optics into a serious scandal.

Throughout their Thursday handoff, Lemon regarded to deprave governor’s brother and had himself an excellent schoolgirl giggle whereas suggesting the Senator ought to have left Earth with the Mars Perseverance rover, which landed earlier that day:

DON LEMON: You recognize who ought to have taken that journey to Mars? [Laughter]

CHRIS CUOMO: Your boy Cruz?

LEMON: It could have been a greater journey for him – [laughter] – for him to take. It took simply as lengthy for him to hop again on that aircraft and get again right here. I imply, Chris, come on.

Seeing as CNN had not too long ago, and conveniently, banned Fredo from overlaying his governor brother and his scandal, it allowed him to bash one in all his favourite Republicans to stoke hate towards.

In fact, Fredo threw a hissy match as a result of Cruz made an look on FNC’s Hannity and griped  imagine his reasoning for going to Cancun, Mexico: “Why not? In our present local weather, his — the precise’s going to imagine him. You recognize he’ll go on. He’ll say, ‘I used to be going to make money working from home. And the way dare they? They do not care about something. They’re the worst. And the media’s the worst.’ And he’s going to get a cross.”

 

 

The hypocrisy was palpable when the 2 of them went backwards and forwards about how a lot Cruz was allegedly mendacity (Click on “develop”):

CUOMO: Even when he was telling the reality.

LEMON: He’s not telling the reality.

CUOMO: However even when he have been. And look – See, that is the issue with the place we’re; is that he is not telling the reality. He is aware of .

LEMON: He is aware of he is aware of.

CUOMO: In fact, he is aware of he’s not telling the reality. However he is aware of . And so long as he does it with a straight face and retains telling the identical story.

It was hypocritical as a result of neither of them ever fact-checked Andrew’s Monday press convention the place he lied about the place nursing residence infections got here from, informing state lawmakers about why he was withholding knowledge, and claimed his aide admitting to the cover-up was a conspiracy idea.

Shortly thereafter, Chris began telling lies of his personal. In response to him, he was “yelled at” by his manufacturing staff as a result of he didn’t wish to spend an excessive amount of time speaking about Cruz throughout his present. “Why? As a result of Texas is in a lot hassle,” he proclaimed as if he was being an excellent man.

We all know that’s a lie as a result of Fredo has a private animus towards the Senator. Final fall, Cruz demolished Chris in a 20-minute brawl, even citing his brother’s nursing residence scandal. Chris additionally lashed out at Cruz with one in all his no-so intelligent nicknames: COVIDiot. And through his present, he repeatedly introduced up Cruz and did a section about what was occurring.

And within the final present of hypocrisy, he acquired all preachy about how “there’s such myopia” between the left and the precise. “If the individual’s in your staff, you’ve got one feeling. In the event that they’re on the opposite staff, it is — , it is Thunderdome.”

Fredo’s “COVID mind” have to be appearing up once more.

This deflection away from an actual scandal was made potential due to profitable sponsorships from ADT Security Services and Allegra. Their contact data is linked so you possibly can inform them concerning the biased information they fund.
