Oh boy, Chris “Fredo” Cuomo really stepped in it again. He stepped in it so hard he should just take up permanent residence. Here’s what happened:
Why do these trumpers think it is ok to go at a kid? https://t.co/RYY2IrJPL3— Christopher C. Cuomo (@ChrisCuomo) January 23, 2020
Yeah, you can only imagine the lightning speed with which those on right-wing twitter leaped to mock and ridicule Cuomo.
Hey, didn't CNN just settle a lawsuit with Nick Sandmann? https://t.co/KlVrGc7ULA— Alana Mastrangelo (@ARmastrangelo) January 24, 2020
Yup. IN fact, the slapdown was so epic and extended so far across Twitter that “Nick Sandmann” was trending for a while nationally! LOL!
And the distinction here is really important – whatever you think of Greta Thunberg, it’s insane to say that she can’t be questioned when she’s made herself a public figure about a political topic. Nick Sandmann didn’t seek to be a leader of a movement the way she did, he was dragged into it by a media all-too-eager to obliterate a teen for having non-progressive views.
So it’s only okay for CNN to go after kids if they’re named Nick Sandmann? https://t.co/7vutdGNeMm— Steven Crowder (@scrowder) January 23, 2020
Your network just had to settle a $275 million lawsuit for smearing and lying about an under aged kid who was not a public figure— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) January 23, 2020
Greta Thunberg is a public figure who wants the spotlight and has been heavily promoted by your company
There's a big difference https://t.co/Xlpew5TTRO
Didn't your garbage network just settle a nine-figure lawsuit for defaming a Catholic child at a pro-life march? https://t.co/C5iToustQA— Sean Davis (@seanmdav) January 23, 2020
Ah liddle Fredo. These are the kind of blindspots that get you in trouble when you live in a little bubble and only partake of the propaganda from your political side. He never saw it comin’ poor fella.
