Quarantine Dodging, Maskless Cuomo Assaults Sen. Cruz as ‘COVIDiot’

What makes bare hypocrisy worse than it already was? When the perpetrator was loud, pompous, and self-righteous. That was the nasty combination brewing on the set of CNN’s PrimeTime Tuesday as roid-raging Chris “Fredo” Cuomo attacked Harvard-educated Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) as a “COVIDiot,” as a result of he dared to name out Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) for virtue-signaling along with his masks.

“COVIDiot” was a phrase Fredo’s mind cooked up someday again. It’s a mix of COVID and fool. The person’s a real genius. The identical man who escaped his quarantine final Easter and has been repeatedly caught and scolded for not sporting a masks in crowded locations.

So, what had Fredo’s lingerie in a wad so huge that he was lashing out on the Senator? Nicely, it was a few issues. First, he was upset over Cruz’s response to an incident on the Senate flooring the place Senator Brown snapped at Senator Dan Sullivan (R-AK) for not sporting a masks, although nobody was inside six ft of him.

Chiding Cruz for his “jackassery,” Cuomo bristled as he learn from the Senator’s tweet calling out Brown:

Little curiosity is an understatement, with Senator Ted Cruz following that second up along with his personal distinctive model of jackassery, tweeting the scene was “idiotic.” Sherrod Brown is being a whole ass. He wears a masks to talk when no person is remotely close to him as an ostentatious signal of faux advantage. Dan Sullivan was 50 ft away, presiding.”

You’re a COVIDiot, Senator Cruz. I do know you went to Harvard, I do know you’re actually sensible. You simply attempt actually attempt to not act that means too usually, particularly the place Trump is concerned,” Fredo sneered.

 

 

He tried to poke holes in Cruz’s argument by stating that Sullivan wasn’t 50 ft away as a result of he had others close by. However Brown was 50 ft away, which was what Cruz was speaking about and the opposite folks have been outdoors of six ft.

You’d suppose Cruz would have much more sense about how dangerous this virus is. You see what’s occurring in his state of Texas,” Cuomo chided as he instructed Cruz wasn’t doing something for ravenous Texans:

[It] simply grew to become the primary to surpass one million instances. He would not say that usually. To not point out the starvation pandemic that’s there. 1000’s ready in meals traces in north Texas this weekend, automobiles so far as you possibly can see stuffed with Individuals in want once they should not be.

That brings us to the second motive Fredo was itching to take a swing a Cruz: they’d a Twitter spat Tuesday.

Responding to a video tweet of Cruz proposing the “radical proposition” that “elections are determined when the outcomes have been counted and the authorized proceedings are over,” Cuomo angrily attacked him and accused him of holding up the deployment of a coronavirus vaccine.

After Cruz advised him to “hush child,” Cuomo shot again by accusing him of doing nothing for the folks of Texas. The Senator schooled him on that too and introduced the information: “Prior to now 2 months, we’ve voted TWICE on $500 billion in COVID reduction. Each occasions, Senate Dems filibustered the invoice. You must name by yourself occasion to cease blocking reduction.  EVERY SINGLE Dem voted to filibuster.”

Including: “I think you by no means reported on that reality to your viewers.” And up till Tuesday night time’s present, Cruz was appropriate. Fredo solely introduced it up when he spoke with Brown after his rant.

Earlier than bringing on Brown, Cuomo stated they tried to e book Cruz “to take it off Twitter, convey it right here, discuss civilized;” stated the person who needs to “choke” and “punch” his critics and simply known as the Senator a “COVIDiot.” “He stated he’s unavailable. We’ll hold attempting. Possibly he’s acquired a brand new e book to promote,” he sniped.

Fredo may need been grateful Cruz wasn’t capable of make it, particularly after the spanking he gave the bloviating CNN host the final time he was on.

Chris Cuomo’s ridiculousness was made attainable due to profitable sponsorships from Discover and Liberty Mutual. Their contact info is linked so you possibly can allow them to now concerning the biased information they’re funding.
