White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany silences CNN hypocrite Chris Cuomo

She moved in for the kill, suggesting Cuomo speak to his brother Andrew, governor of New York, who had several on-the-record positive statements about hydroxychloroquine.

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany took it to CNN “journalist” Chris Cuomo after the latter mocked President Donald Trump for taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventative measure against coronavirus.

It turns out, Cuomo actually took a form of the drug during his own treatment for the virus.

According to his wife’s blog posts regarding her husband’s treatment, Cuomo took “potentized quinine,” a synthetic derivative of chloroquine according to CNN Health, and something she called a “natural antibiotic.”

McEnany called Cuomo out for actually taking a “less safe version.”

McEnany in Beast Mode

At a White House press briefing Wednesday, McEnany addressed a question regarding the use of hydroxychloroquine and attempted to set the record straight on criticisms, particularly from Cuomo. “You had Chris Cuomo saying the president knows that hydroxychloroquine is not supported by science, he knows it has been flagged by his own people and he’s using it,” McEnany railed.

“Cuomo mocked the president for this,” she continued. “It turns out that Chris Cuomo took a less safe version of it called quinine, which the FDA removed from the market in 2006 because it had serious side effects, including death. So really interesting to have that criticism of the president.”

That’s when she moved in for the kill, suggesting Cuomo speak to his brother Andrew, governor of New York, who had several on-the-record positive statements about hydroxychloroquine.

Cuomo’s Own Hoax

This is an incredibly rewarding takedown by McEnany, especially in context with little Fredo’s “fake” stunt he and CNN pulled showing him emerging from his basement quarantine following a coronavirus diagnosis. Fox News host Tucker Carlson blasted Cuomo for the fake news story. “CNN, shameless cheese balls that they are celebrated by filming Cuomo rising like a buff cable news Lazarus from the grave and back into ordinary life,” Carlson mocked.

Nobody should take this man seriously—whether it involves “cheesy” skits like this or what he considers fair criticism of the president.
