Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) skilled one thing akin to an IED explosion in Iraq.

Seems the GOP is pro-diversity in any case,” he sneered on the prime of his present, pushing the lie that Republicans had been racist. “They voted overwhelmingly in the present day to change into the GOP-Q, including a wing devoted to the development of Qanon kooks who selected to consider that my Jewish household is capturing lasers at us from area; and that much more are ingesting the blood of infants.”

Whereas he was desperately attempting to make use of the craziness of freshman Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) to smear the complete Republican Social gathering, he by no means cared that Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) pushed blood libel in opposition to his “Jewish household.” And in 2019, Democrats watered down a decision condemning anti-Semitism to guard her, with no outrage from Cuomo.

At one level, he flipped out at Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) and appeared to accuse her of promoting out. “Very notably, Liz Cheney was among the many 199 who voted to maintain the Qanon rep. on her committees. I suppose that was the value of Cheney staying in energy. However what a worth to pay,” he chided. He additionally had his producers begin a continuous, on-screen field to point out his viewers pictures of which Republicans he wished to be focused.

 

 

Cuomo’s roid-rage was actually pumping a couple of minutes later when he claimed Republicans had by no means condemned the Capitol riot, which is a lie, and prompt they might by no means help a black particular person, additionally a lie:

However let’s be sincere. You’ve not seen many Republicans speaking a lot in regards to the sixth, have you ever? Assume for a second. You see any teary addresses, folks standing up and swearing their lifeblood to go in opposition to those that tried to destroy the rest– no, no. Definitely not like they did when there was violence and protests about race. I ponder why? I ponder if the Qanon woman would get such help if she was a black particular person.

What a sicko.

Fredo’s psychological situation appeared to worsen throughout the handoff with CNN Tonight host Don Lemon when he tried to equate Ocasio-Cortez’s expertise within the Cannon Home Workplace Constructing to his time in Iraq.

The story that I’m telling you about is once I bought blown up in Iraq with my cameraman on this MP mission that we had been with, with the navy police in Gazaliyah, south of Baghdad,” he declared. “Right here’s my level. You go after AOC for her concern, saying it was illegitimate, she was within the adjoining constructing, you do not know what the hell you are speaking about.”

He then recounted how he was embedded with navy MPs when an IED went off (click on “increase”):

CUOMO: Why am I utilizing my expertise? As a result of once we had been on that patrol and so they stopped us by these our bodies and this captain was explaining to me they’re typically weaponized, and other people began firing at us. A variety of hearth. They detonated the our bodies, it blew over the Humvee in entrance of us, folks had been screaming, all this gunfire was all over. Don, I swear, I believed I used to be —

LEMON: You had been going to die?

And I believed any individual was going to stay their weapon within the turret, round hearth, and it was over. My cameraman Bartley Worth and I had been one another and we thought it was over. Okay?

“We had been improper. The voices I heard had been our troops speaking, killing the insurgents, calling in tank hearth, and controlling the entire state of affairs. However they could not discuss to me as a result of they had been busy,” he added. In fact, Lemon agreed: “It is the identical with this.”
