President Trump continues to defy the experts. And his latest act of defiance perplexed CNN’s “Fredo” Cuomo.
Cuomo offered that the man who’s catchphrase is Make America Great Again doesn’t love America. And Cuomo offered proof.
On his show “Cuomo Prime Time” this week, the Host With The Most put on screen split shots of presidents Bill Clinton, Barack Obama and Trump, showing them before they took office and after they left office (or, in Trump’s case, after two-and-a-half years in the White House).
Trump has barely aged, and that troubles Cuomo deeply.
“I mean come on, look at Clinton’s hair — went white. George W. Bush looks like he got a beat down. Obama looks like his own grandfather … this is a very hard job because of the stress they carry with them,” he said.
“Now let’s look look at this president. It’s been almost three years since Trump won the presidency. He looks exactly the same,” he said.
Then Cuomo did what Cuomo does: He hit Trump over his hair and implied that he may have had plastic surgery (remember, people, he’s a journalist).
“His hair is — I don’t know what’s going on with that. But he may do things that presidents in the past haven’t done to augment their physical reality,” he suggested.
Finally, Cuomo got to his big point.
“But it could also be he doesn’t care the way others have. He seems content to vent and foment problems. … [Trump] doesn’t deal with the trying business of compromise,” Cuomo said. “He chases the easy slumber of blaming others and sowing the seeds of discord and division.”
Cuomo also said Trump “told us a very important truth today,” then played a clip of the president saying, “nothing keeps me up at night.”
That, too, troubles Cuomo. The host said that Obama sometimes couldn’t sleep at night, and that made him a great leader “because a leader feels the pain of those he leads.” Of course, I think Obama stayed up all night scheming. How else was he going to pull of some of the greatest Presidential scams of our time?
After a lofty reference to Shakespeare’s “Henry the Fourth,” Cuomo got back in the gutter to offer Trump some advice: “Maybe this president could use a sleepless night or two” and “fewer hours in front of the TV and on the golf course.”
“Shouldn’t he process that pain and lose sleep? Isn’t that what the job is about? Doesn’t he see their faces?” Cuomo said in conclusion. “Can you imagine all of this on your shoulders and not needing a bottle of Ambien to just take a nap. How about this, care more. Mr. President, you may sleep less but the rest of this country may rest a little easier.”
You can’t make this stuff up, people. CNN believes this is the news. You would think Chris Cuomo would be tired of Trump ripping him to shreds by now. Yet, Cuomo continues to poke the bear. Sadly, he’s not prepared for the bear to poke back.
