Move over, Democrats. There’s a new opposition party in town. And its name is CNN.
Opening his show this morning with a discussion of the emerging controversy over the unmasking of the names of Trump associates in intelligence intercepts, Chris Cuomo said, “so President Trump wants you to believe that he is the victim of a ‘crooked scheme.’ Those are his words. And here are our words: there is no evidence of any wrongdoing.”
So it’s Trump’s words vs. “our words.” As if Trump and CNN are two opposing political movements.
Which they evidently are. Cuomo then blithely dismissed the entire matter as a “fake scandal being peddled by right-wing media.”
It is particularly absurd to so quickly dismiss a controversy when the people at the center of it are the highly-politicized Susan “the video did it” Rice, and her deputy, Ben Rhodes.
Note: you have to view the video to hear how Cuomo bites off each word of “there is no evidence of any wrongdoing.” CNN really, really wants you to ignore this story.
