CNN “Cuomo Prime Time” anchor Chris Cuomo said that President Donald Trump was doing a “happy dance” at his campaign rally while 215,000 Americans had died due to the coronavirus pandemic during his Tuesday broadcast.
Cuomo said, “Trump, on the other hand, knows he needs a knockout. He is going for broke. Every punch is a haymaker. He’s swinging wildly. Every line is an insult; every rally is likely to get someone sick. And you will not hear him say to put on masks. Even though followers tell us they would do it if he asked. Like I said, he’s going for broke. But here’s Trump’s problem. Here’s his problem with the analogy. He’s not fighting one opponent. He’s fighting two. He’s swinging at Biden, but he keeps getting hit by the pandemic. America went from first to worst in terms of cases and deaths, and leadership has to be a reason why. Florida and now Pennsylvania, two places that Trump needs, Pennsylvania tonight, Florida last night, going back to Florida. Why? They are crucial. Had he won them? Now they’re up for grabs, at best. the pandemic that he is saying is no big deal, that he actually caught and needed to get two experimental treatments in the hospital to beat, is not only going away, it’s in full effect in both of those states.”
