‘Makes me sick’: CNN anchor scorns GOP candidate over ‘Price Is Right’ victory music

Powered by Topple

CNN’s Chris Cuomo could not wait to scorn Republican candidate David Jolly for playing “The Price Is Right” theme song at his victory rally — Jolly won the special election Tuesday in Florida to replace the late U.S. Rep. Bill Young.

According to Newsbusters, co-anchor Michaela Pereira referenced the choice of music as CNN played a clip of the rally, which prompted Cuomo to say:

“What a metaphor for what politics has become – that they are playing the theme song of The Price Is Right when they celebrate a victory, because it’s about the money! It makes me sick.”

Cuomo was apparently not aware that there was a good reason “they” were playing the song.

Bob Barker, the former host of The Price Is Right, had not only endorsed Jolly in his bid for Congress, but had also appeared in a television ad on behalf of the candidate.

Or, perhaps, the CNN host was aware and just chose not to divulge this information to viewers.
