The rhetoric coming from CNN’s Chris Cuomo has gotten more and more disturbing with each passing week since the election. Monday made it the third week in a row he had used PrimeTime as a platform to launch thinly veiled threats against the lives of Republicans. According to the roid-raging anchor, the GOP intentionally allowed the pandemic to get out of control, and demanded that punishment be delivered “directly and cold.”
Ahead of his maligning of Republicans as a whole, he doubled down on last week’s target of his venom, General Service Administration head Emily Murphy. On November 19, he showed Murphy’s official office photograph to his audience and dementedly proclaimed: “She's smiling while you're dying all over this country.”
This time around, after she had kicked off the transition process with President-elect Biden’s team earlier that day, Cuomo described her as something that “we must stomp out in our politics.” His vitriol quickly grew as he read from Murphy’s statement and scoffed at it.
