CNN’s Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo mocked “ring-wing” media for reporting on rising crime in major cities, suggesting that the reports come when President Donald Trump’s “poll numbers go south.”
The two spoke briefly at the start of Lemon’s “CNN Tonight” show Tuesday evening. The hand-off started with a discussion about two Californians who have been charged with a hate crime for trying to paint over a “Black Lives Matter” street mural.
Cuomo quickly pivoted, trashing those around Trump and people concerned with what the BLM movement really stands for. He told Lemon that “it’s all about creating division” and called out “state TV” for allegedly pushing this narrative.
