CNN host Chris Cuomo ripped into Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Wednesday night, calling out his “hypocrisy” after the senator complained about Democrats’ use of the filibuster.
Cuomo quickly reminded Cruz that he once read the children’s book “Green Eggs and Ham” during a filibuster of his own.
“Have they read Green Eggs and Ham yet?” Cuomo mocked.
When Cuomo brought up Trump saying telling the Proud Boys to “stand back and stand by,” and refusing to denounce white supremacy, Cruz attacked former Vice President Joe Biden for speaking at Sen. Robert Byrd’s funeral.
Cruz also slammed Cuomo’s brother, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), over his response to the coronavirus pandemic ― causing Cuomo to wonder why Cruz wouldn’t be as critical of President Donald Trump.
At another point, Cuomo slammed Cruz’s “weak-ass argument” against former Vice President Joe Biden.
“Why don’t you talk to the president the way you talk to my brother, Ted? You afraid of him?” Cuomo asked. “You think he’ll smack you down at home?”
He added: “I’m talking about the president. The one who called you a liar. The one who said your wife was ugly, that guy. You know, the guy now who you won’t say anything about.”
“You actually wonder why you don’t have a lot of Republicans who don’t come on your show,” Cruz said.
This is the most heated tv moment I HAVE EVER WATCHED!
