Cuomo Claims ‘Too Many’ Trump Supporters Want Blacks ‘Put Down’

Despite his false claims to the contrary, CNN host Chris Cuomo hated President Trump and loathed his supporters. He flashed that disdain again on Thursday when he suggested that the President was sending more racist “dog whistles” to his fans when he talked about “dominating” the streets. He even seemed to suggest Trump’s supporters wanted to see blacks killed, or “put down” in the words of Cuomo. On top of that, Cuomo also defended the radical “autonomous zone” set up in Seattle.

“All eyes are on Seattle and Trump sees an opportunity to make everything that's happening there, and really everywhere, about his political opponents and their radical ranks,” he fumed, seemingly admitting that radicals were there. “His move? Calls to ‘dominate’ the people on the streets, dangling troops again. Wonder what effect that will have on people who say they are tired of being dominated.”

After playing a heavily edited soundbite of Trump’s address in Dallas, Texas on police reform, Cuomo was irritated by talk of “dominating the street with compassion.”

It was then he made his disgusting attack against Trump supporters. “When I say he is tone-deaf, I mean the calls for equity and justice. That is because he is singing a different tune – it’s more like a dog whistle, right, to his base. And too many of them want to see the people who are begging for change put down,” he proclaimed without evidence.
