SICK: CNN's Chris Cuomo Sneers At Those Who Offer 'Thoughts and Prayers' to Shooting Victims


CNN's Chris Cuomo mocked those who offer thoughts and prayers in the wake of a mass shooting, sarcastically taunting anyone who thinks faith in God is the answer to such a human tragedy.

“The only consensus there is, is in a canard and here it is. First, I would like to offer my 'thoughts and prayers,' because that’s what you do when you offer 'thoughts and prayers,'" he said, sneering. "You mock those who lost loved ones, because if you gave it any thought at all, you would never walk away from any of these without figuring out a better way to deal with them."

“And prayer? You think leaving it to God is the answer? We pray for strength, we pray for wisdom, for resolve, but we clearly don’t want to act on any of those here,” he continued. “So what are you praying for?”

“What would it take? how about a stadium full of children of the most influential people in our society all holding puppies? What if they were all shot and killed? Would we act?”

Cuomo's snide comments drew quite a bit of kickback online, including from Ryan Petty, the father of Parkland shooting victim Alaina Petty.
