You can tell you are watching a segment by the MSM when they have the gall to bash Trump for something he didn’t do and then defend a violent group like Antifa.
CNN’s Chris Cuomo brought on Rob Astorino and Steve Cortes to talk about the what Trump said back during the Charlottesville incident. Unlike a normal CNN Trump bashing session, Cuomo found himself alone in pushing the liberal narrative.
The Charlottesville discussion was brought about by Biden who of course misquoted the president trying to make it seem like he is a racist. Cuomo was trying to push that same narrative but was caught twisting the truth through omission. One of his guests, Steve Cortes pointed out that he cut a video to make it seem like the president didn’t condemn racists.
After playing the clip of what Trump said Cuomo started by asking Cortes his opinion.
“Why do you believe that the President said the right thing during Charlottesville?” Cuomo asked.
“Well, I’ll tell you. The main reason is because I can read. And I have read the transcript,” Cortes started.
So, rather than believing in a fairy tale narrative, if we deal in the actual evidence, and in this case, that is a transcript of what was said, it’s impossible to determine anything except for his intention, which was to totally condemn racism.
And – and I have to say, Chris, the way you edited that segment, that you showed just before this, was appallingly misleading because you cut the quote off at a critical juncture.
If you continue the quote you were showing, and I want to quote directly here because I want to be extremely precise. He said “You had people in that group who were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue, and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.”
He then continued to the next answer. “I am not talking about the Neo-Nazis and White nationalists because they should be condemned totally.” So, he was unequivocal that he was not talking about racist or Neo-Nazis.
But the way you deceptively edited what you just showed–”
“There’s nothing – there’s – there’s nothing deceptive about it.”
Cuomo then posted the transcripts of the video and claimed that he cleared up any issue about deceiving the public. So in a way he admitted that the video he cut was misleading.
But that was not Cuomo’s last blunder. He later claimed that Antifa is a good group and once again found he was alone with his opinion.
“You can talk about Antifa, I’ve watched them in streets protesting in different situations, OK? There are certainly aspects of them that are true to a cause, that is a good cause, they want social justice, they want whatever they want in that context.”
“Not Antifa,” CNN’s Rob Astorino claimed.
“Chris, Antifa is not a good cause,” Cortes countered. “Antifa does not have good aims, Antifa wants power, wants political power, taken through force. That’s what Antifa is all about.”

Anitfa is currently under investigation by the FBI. This supposed good group is suspected of trying to get guns from the cartel.
“The FBI is investigating anti-fascist activists for an alleged plot to buy guns from a Mexican cartel in order to “stage an armed rebellion” at the southern border, according to an unclassified document obtained by The Chicago Tribune.”
