Dem Rep. Calls on Conyers to Resign: ‘Is There Going to be Any Level of Accountability?’

After being the first Democratic representative to call on Rep. John Conyers to leave Congress over sexual harassment settlements, Rep. Kathleen Rice appeared on CNN to again take on her colleague. CNN’s Chris Cuomo kicked off the interview asking why she wants Conyers to resign, despite his denials of the allegations. “Because enough is enough,” Rice replied. “What I am voicing, publicly, is what ever single private citizen is saying across America.” “Why are the rules for politicians in Washington different then they are for everyone else?” Rice asked, noting that other accused sexual deviants — like Harvey Weinstein and Louis C. Continue reading "Dem Rep. Calls on Conyers to Resign: ‘Is There Going to be Any Level of Accountability?’"

Chris Cuomo Laughs About His Bizarre Interview With LaVar Ball: I Was Like, ‘What is Happening?!?’

On Wednesday night, CNN’s Chris Cuomo appeared on Late Night and was immediately asked about his off-the-wall interview he had with LaVar Ball this week. Seth Meyers played some highlights from that 23-minute interview, including when Ball asked Cuomo if he “thanked” his doctor for “bringing him into this world” and he mocked the CNN anchor’s last name by comparing it to Google Chrome. Cuomo explained what was going through his mind while talking with Ball, asking himself, “Why am I watching this? What is happening?” and told Meyers that he thought he was going to get into Ball’s accusations of President Trump about his lack of involvement in getting his son out of China. Meyers then asked Cuomo if the thought this feud was the “perfect feud for the times we’re living in.” Cuomo bragged about how he predicted early on via Twitter that when the first Continue reading "Chris Cuomo Laughs About His Bizarre Interview With LaVar Ball: I Was Like, ‘What is Happening?!?’"

CNN’s New Day Hits Trump for Tweeting About LaVar Ball Instead of Navy Flight Crash

On Wednesday’s showing of New Day, CNN’s Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota wondered whether President Trump has his priorities in order, particularly when it comes to his tweeting. The president had just acknowledged the situation in the Sea of Japan where eight Americans were recovered after a US Navy plane crashed off the coast of Okinawa. However, the president’s Navy tweet came hours after he spent the morning continuing his feud with LaVar Ball and complaining some more about professional athletes who kneel before the national anthem. As Cuomo and Camerota cycled through Trump’s tweets today, they wondered why the president chose not to talk about the Navy’s situation first when it’s a more pressing issue than his squabbles with Continue reading "CNN’s New Day Hits Trump for Tweeting About LaVar Ball Instead of Navy Flight Crash"

Mediaite Profile: CNN New Day’s Chris Cuomo is a Fighter

On Nov. 9, CNN New Day anchor Chris Cuomo Tweeted an astonishing 36 times during his three hour broadcast. Almost all of those Tweets were replies to those who engaged with him first. How on earth does he maintain such a prolific pace? “I take all comments I can get after,” Cuomo told Mediaite moments after he signed off last Thursday. “That’s what I do.” One of those comments came from a viewer who complimented his persistence during an interview with a particularly evasive subject. The viewer sent Cuomo a GIF of Muhammad Ali ducking an astonishing flurry of punches during a 1977 exhibition match against Michael Dokes, to symbolize the sparring match in which Cuomo had just taken part. “Political pablum Continue reading "Mediaite Profile: CNN New Day’s Chris Cuomo is a Fighter"

Chris Cuomo, Jim Jordan Lock Horns Over Demand for Special Counsel on Clinton: ‘Political Spitball Contest’

Chris Cuomo had a heated exchange with Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) Tuesday, as the two debated whether today’s questioning of Attorney General Jeff Sessions in the House Judiciary Committee ought to be focused on Donald Trump Jr. and his connections with WikiLeaks. Jordan, who sits on the committee, said he looked forward to learning more about the Attorney General’s plans for a special counsel on Hillary Clinton. While those are not yet definite, Jordan said he would nudge Sessions in that direction since recent developments pertaining to Clinton, the Uranium One deal and Fusion GPS necessitate an investigation. From there, Cuomo brought up Don Jr.’s correspondence with WikiLeaks and asked Jordan why he isn’t putting more of a priority on that than the politically vanquished Clinton. This led to a contentious exchange where Jordan insisted that the Fusion GPS dossier is the bigger deal since it was supposedly the Continue reading "Chris Cuomo, Jim Jordan Lock Horns Over Demand for Special Counsel on Clinton: ‘Political Spitball Contest’"

Chris Cuomo Has Epic Battle With Corey Lewandowski Over Russia Ties: ‘Nonsense!’

CNN’s Chris Cuomo battled former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski on New Day Tuesday morning in an epic bout over the campaign’s ties to Russia and latest developments in the investigation. Things got heated right off the bat, as Cuomo asked Lewandowski if he accepts “the U.S. intelligence community’s assessment that Russia tried to interfere and did so during the election.” Lewandowski replied that while the Russians “did try to impact the election,” they actually did so through “the Clinton campaign.” “Hold on a second. So you’re are saying that you accept the intelligence community’s assessment. But you are saying that the dynamic was that the interference was conducted through the Clinton campaign? That is a notion that doesn’t meet any standard or any piece of proof that we’ve gotten from the investigators to date,” Cuomo shot back. “I get the spin,” he added. The two then Continue reading "Chris Cuomo Has Epic Battle With Corey Lewandowski Over Russia Ties: ‘Nonsense!’"
