During Tuesday's edition of Cuomo Prime Time, host Chris Cuomo engaged in a discussion about the Covington kids with CNN Political Commentators Angela Rye and Andre Bauer.  Shortly after Cuomo talked about how he had "never seen a man in elected office, let alone the presidency, dissemble, divide, misstate, and lie as often as this President has, "Rye seemed to agree with actress Alyssa Milano's assertion that "the red MAGA hat is the new white hood." According to Rye, "when I see the Make America Great Again hat now, Chris, I am triggered. I am so triggered...This Make America Great Again hat is just as maddening and frustrating and triggering for me to look at as a KKK hood. Like, that is the type of hatred that his policies represent." Rye's comments came just minutes before Cuomo himself expressed his disapproval of the Covington kids wearing MAGA hats while describing them as "the victims of their own choices."
