The bellicose CNN anchor decided Tuesday night to take on a network colleague — who also happens to be a member of the Trump 2020 re-election campaign advisory board – over the president’s position among Hispanics.
Unfortunately for Cuomo, the adviser happens to be Hispanic himself, and he wasn’t afraid to hit back hard.
The clash came as Cuomo interviewed Steve Cortes, a prominent Trump supporter who’s made the president’s case on the network before.
“This president has simply been an amazing leader for Hispanics,” Cortes, a CNN contributor, said, according to Fox News. “I think a lot of Hispanics look at Donald Trump and they may say, ‘Look, I would like him if he phrased things differently.'”
At one point in the exchange, Cuomo got particularly condescending, noting that Cortes was a “member of a group that has been denigrated time and time, this man who described the caravans coming here as being mostly murderers and rapists and ‘some I assume are good people’ and all this stuff about the s-hole countries and what he said about Puerto Rico and treating them like they weren’t even part of the country.”

It’s funny how liberals want exhaustive background checks on gun owners, but we are to assume that not screening immigrants is a good idea.
