CNN’s Chris Cuomo did not hold back on Wednesday during a nearly eight-minute-long monologue condemning Donald Trump for promoting Goya products from the Oval Office while ignoring the experts on the coronavirus pandemic.
“The pandemic is in full effect,” said Cuomo. “You tell me how a president, in the middle of a pandemic, has got time for this bullsh*t. Are you kidding me? Hawking products? Goya, I don’t care who it is. Resolute Desk? This is what he’s resolute about? Pandemic priorities? His daughter Ivanka, top White House adviser, are you kidding me? Marketing for a brand following calls for a boycott after Goya’s CEO heaped praise on Trump last week. On your dime, in the middle of a pandemic, they’re selling beans. Are you kidding me?”
“Seriously,” Cuomo fumed. “This is not left and right. This is reasonable, my brothers and sisters. The guy is sitting at the Resolute Desk with a bunch of Goya products. Proof positive of why we need many Faucis, but we only have one. Why? The idea of him messing with Fauci when he’s selling magic beans is crazy.”
“What good reason? That’s the question,” said Cuomo. “Now, you say, ‘none.’ Okay. So what’s the bad reason? Now things start to look more clear. Shift the blame, put stink on Fauci, sell your beans. Cut out the CDC from data information … I don’t know a good reason but I know a bad one. Lie, deny, and defy. The president keeps telling you the problem is testing. You don’t think that has anything to do with his desire for this information? Wake up. This is what’s making us sick.”
