CNN anchor warns Trump’s defenders: “He’s playing you.”
CNN’s Chris Cuomo is calling on President Donald Trump’s supporters to demand higher standards from their leader.
So far, however, they’ve refused to do so. Cuomo wrote on Twitter on Tuesday that their support has “a religious quality” that leads them to defend the president almost as a matter of faith:Christopher C. Cuomo ✔@ChrisCuomo

Credibility problems on all fronts.

In fact, if he said most of the things that the president says about people he’s threatened by or doesn’t like, his cheeks would be glowing.”Read more: http://electionnewschannel.com/top-news/76921-chris-cuomo-nails-why-trump-supporters-defend-everything-he-does
