Chris Cuomo Delivers Blistering Rebuke To Donald Trump’s Latest CNN Criticism

"There’s nothing ‘great again’ about taking America down the path of the despot," said the CNN host.

Chris Cuomo hit back at Donald Trump on Monday after the president called for people to boycott AT&T in a bid to force the telecommunications company to make “big changes” at its subsidiary, CNN.

Cuomo, who hosts CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time” show, fired back:

“Does the president really want people to lose jobs so that CNN won’t cover its lies as often?” Cuomo added. “Yes is the answer.”
