Quarantine Dodging, Maskless Cuomo Assaults Sen. Cruz as ‘COVIDiot’

What makes bare hypocrisy worse than it already was? When the perpetrator was loud, pompous, and self-righteous. That was the nasty combination brewing on the set of CNN’s PrimeTime Tuesday as roid-raging Chris “Fredo” Cuomo attacked Harvard-educated Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) as a “COVIDiot,” as a result of he dared to name out Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) for virtue-signaling along with his masks.

“COVIDiot” was a phrase Fredo’s mind cooked up someday again. It’s a mixture of COVID and fool. The person’s a real genius. The identical man who escaped his quarantine final Easter and has been repeatedly caught and scolded for not sporting a masks in crowded locations.

So, what had Fredo’s underwear in a wad so large that he was lashing out on the Senator? Properly, it was a few issues. First, he was upset over Cruz’s response to an incident on the Senate flooring the place Senator Brown snapped at Senator Dan Sullivan (R-AK) for not sporting a masks, although nobody was inside six ft of him.

Chiding Cruz for his “jackassery,” Cuomo bristled as he learn from the Senator’s tweet calling out Brown:

Little curiosity is an understatement, with Senator Ted Cruz following that second up along with his personal distinctive model of jackassery, tweeting the scene was “idiotic.” Sherrod Brown is being a whole ass. He wears a masks to talk when no one is remotely close to him as an ostentatious signal of pretend advantage. Dan Sullivan was 50 ft away, presiding.”

You’re a COVIDiot, Senator Cruz. I do know you went to Harvard, I do know you’re actually sensible. You simply strive actually strive to not act that method too usually, particularly the place Trump is concerned,” Fredo sneered.

 

 

He tried to poke holes in Cruz’s argument by mentioning that Sullivan wasn’t 50 ft away as a result of he had others close by. However Brown was 50 ft away, which was what Cruz was speaking about and the opposite individuals have been exterior of six ft.

You’ll suppose Cruz would have much more sense about how dangerous this virus is. You see what’s occurring in his state of Texas,” Cuomo chided as he advised Cruz wasn’t doing something for ravenous Texans:

[It] simply turned the primary to surpass one million circumstances. He would not say that usually. To not point out the starvation pandemic that’s there. Hundreds ready in meals strains in north Texas this weekend, vehicles so far as you possibly can see full of People in want after they should not be.

That brings us to the second motive Fredo was itching to take a swing a Cruz: they’d a Twitter spat Tuesday.

Responding to a video tweet of Cruz proposing the “radical proposition” that “elections are determined when the outcomes have been counted and the authorized proceedings are over,” Cuomo angrily attacked him and accused him of holding up the deployment of a coronavirus vaccine.

After Cruz informed him to “hush baby,” Cuomo shot again by accusing him of doing nothing for the individuals of Texas. The Senator schooled him on that too and introduced the info: “Up to now 2 months, we’ve voted TWICE on $500 billion in COVID aid. Each occasions, Senate Dems filibustered the invoice. You need to name by yourself occasion to cease blocking aid.  EVERY SINGLE Dem voted to filibuster.”

Including: “I believe you by no means reported on that reality to your viewers.” And up till Tuesday night time’s present, Cruz was appropriate. Fredo solely introduced it up when he spoke with Brown after his rant.

Earlier than bringing on Brown, Cuomo mentioned they tried to guide Cruz “to take it off Twitter, convey it right here, discuss civilized;” mentioned the person who desires to “choke” and “punch” his critics and simply known as the Senator a “COVIDiot.” “He mentioned he’s unavailable. We’ll maintain attempting. Perhaps he’s acquired a brand new guide to promote,” he sniped.

Fredo might need been grateful Cruz wasn’t in a position to make it, particularly after the spanking he gave the bloviating CNN host the final time he was on.
