Despite his false claims to the contrary, CNN host Chris Cuomo hates President Trump and loathed his supporters. He flashed that disdain again on Thursday when he suggested that the President was sending more racist “dog whistles” to his fans when talking about “dominating” the streets. He even seemed to suggest Trump’s supporters wanted to see blacks killed, or “put down” in the words of Cuomo. On top of that, Cuomo also defended the radical “autonomous zone” set up in Seattle.
“All eyes are on Seattle and Trump sees an opportunity to make everything that’s happening there, and really everywhere, about his political opponents and their radical ranks,” he fumed, seemingly admitting that radicals were there. “His move? Calls to ‘dominate’ the people on the streets, dangling troops again. Wonder what effect that will have on people who say they are tired of being dominated.”
After playing a heavily edited soundbite of Trump’s address in Dallas, Texas on police reform, Cuomo was irritated by talk of “dominating the street with compassion.”
It was then he made his disgusting attack against Trump supporters. “When I say he is tone-deaf, I mean the calls for equity and justice. That is because he is singing a different tune – it’s more like a dog whistle, right, to his base. And too many of them want to see the people who are begging for change put down,” he proclaimed without evidence.
With the President now concerned about the armed group of radicals who had seized a part of downtown Seattle and declared it their own country, Cuomo and CNN were intent on gaslighting their viewers about what was going on; to make it seem as though Trump was targeting average people.

Completely ignoring how armed guards were shaking down businesses, demanding people show ID before entering, and their crazy list of demands, correspondent Dan Simon tried to make the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” (CHAZ) seem like a fun block party:
Now, despite the fact that this all began violently, right now it’s entirely peaceful. In fact, you can see these protesters behind me. And in fact, let’s pan the camera around, Chris, because it really has the feel of a street festival. They’re serving food down there, they’re giving out free food. There’s medical tents. People are camping out. They have movies at night. There is live music. So, that’s what the situation is like now.
But right now, Chris, there appears to be no strategy in place on the part of the city to take back this police department. We don’t know how long this is going to go for, but they seem to be content at the moment just to let them have the run of the place.
But back in reality, honest reporters such as Townhall senior writer Julio Rosas were delivering unfiltered documentation of what’s been taking place. In one disturbing video, a man was on the verge of getting beaten down with a baseball bat because someone misplaced their cellphone. And people gathered in the zone were not shy about admitting there were people with guns in there.
Cuomo also had Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan (D) on the show where she touted how the police chief was able to get in to visit the shuttered police station inside the zone. But what she and Cuomo failed to admit was that they were set upon by people who wanted to stop them. Those people were stopped when one person started arguing with them.
And while the Mayor suggested they would let the radicals stay there to have a “summer of love,” the pair refused to acknowledge that police were unable to effectively respond to 9-1-1 calls in the area.
