Far-Right VA Senate Candidate to Chris Cuomo: ‘CNN Ought to Fire You!’

Far-right, Trump backed GOP candidate Corey Stewart appeared on Chris Cuomo‘s show on CNN Wednesday night fresh off of his GOP primary win. Things got heated fast. “I am a journalist,” Cuomo told Stewart at one point before grilling him on whether or not it was a fact that the far-right candidate was spotted standing in front of a Confederate flag. “You want to condemn everything…you want to condemn Southern heritage, you want to condemn everything,” Stewart snapped back, not really answering Cuomo’s claims. Cuomo then shouted that he only wants to condemn “hate” and “lies.” A wounded Stewart yelled on. Then, after cross-talk and a somewhat uneven battle of wits, Stewart insisted that Cuomo was trying to change the topic. It didn’t work well for him. “You are the topic, my brother” Cuomo pushed back. The CNN host then suggested Stewart should own who he is, noting he try to “run away from things” that he obviously embraces especially since the Trump team likes him just how he is. “You know this is such a joke,” Stewart shot back. “You know what, CNN ought to fire you…you are so far above what is honest, unbelievable.” Cuomo then went in for the kill. “Why can’t you just tell the truth?… You haven’t denied a single fact that I’ve suggested.” The Virginia Senate candidate then tried to distance himself from all the things Cuomo said he said. Cuomo wasn’t buying it. Watch above, via CNN. [image via screengrab]
