CNN needs to put up a health warning when the dumb and dumber duo of Chris “Fredo” Cuomo (PrimeTime) and Don Lemon (CNN Tonight) are on the screen together because viewers can get whiplash from their flailing opinions. It was especially needed on Thursday, when the pair were back to mocking concerns about violent crime as murders and shooting continued to rise in New York City.
With Cuomo attacking Attorney General William Barr and those decrying violent riots as just white people afraid of “those black guys,” Lemon wanted to be “honest” about the violence in New York City. “Honestly, because if you watch a certain state TV and you listen to conservative media you would think that, you know, entire cities are just, you know, embroiled in fights and fires and whatever,” he whined.
His example of how safe the city was to cite how he and Fredo were able to eat dinner in a rich area near the CNN office building.
“We went out and had a great dinner in New York City tonight,” he declared. “People actually walked up to us and said ‘thank you for -- I watch you every night. I can't believe’ -- They had to do a double-take at us actually hanging out and not seeing us on the TV screen. But New York City was not a hellscape, was it?”
