Trump supporting black man got on the nerves of CNN’s Chris Cuomo. Paris Dennard, who was the former director of Black Outreach for George W. Bush, defended President Trump’s comments after Charlottesville. Cuomo didn’t like his opinion and accused him of being disingenuous and “straining” to make his point.
“I’m not straining Chris. It’s not strained. Trust me it’s not strained. Don’t put words in my mouth,” said Dennard. “You keep moving the goal post for him, it’s never good enough. He’s denounced them multiple times. I think this is the fifth time he has denounced them,” said Dennard.
This is true. At first they were angry that Trump didn’t denounce white supremacists, then after he did, it still wasn’t good enough for them. Dennard defended President Trump’s comments that their were “good people” at the rally. “Heather was at the rally. And I think everyone can say that Heather was a good person,” said Dennard.
“He [Trump] wasn’t talking about Heather Heyer. Don’t even let those words be in your mouth right now. Don’t bring Heather Heyer into this. She was on the other side. She was fighting against the Nazis! She was part of the ‘many sides’ problem that the President drew up. Don’t put her in the good people,” screamed Cuomo emotionally.
“What you ignore, you empower. Take those words with you today,” snapped Dennard in response. “Take your own advice,” said Cuomo. Check out the video below.
