When you’re in a hole, stop digging.
That’s a lesson that CNN shill and nepotism poster boy Chris Cuomo obviously hasn’t learned yet.
Chris — the brother of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and son of former Gov. Mario Cuomo — put his foot in his mouth again when he suggested that 12-year-old girls are intolerant if they don’t want to share locker rooms with men.
The controversy erupted after a Twitter user asked Cuomo: “What do you tell a 12-year-old girl who doesn’t want to see a penis in the locker room?”
Cuomo, who has two daughters and a son, replied: “I wonder if she is the problem or her overprotective and intolerant dad (is)? Teach tolerance.”
Chris deleted the tweet, but screengrabs live forever…
Heated debates broke out all over social media Thursday after President Trump rescinded President Obama‘s letter requiring public schools to let transgender students use the bathrooms and locker rooms of whatever gender they “identify with.”
In the United States, 0.3% of adults identify as transgender. That’s about 972,000 people out of the 324 million people who live in the U.S. The statistics are likely a lot smaller for children.
Contrary to what mainstream media is bleating, Trump’s reversal does not strip transgender rights. It merely throws the decision about transgender locker rooms and bathrooms back to the states. Why? Because mandating trans-bathrooms in schools is not a federal issue addressed by the Constitution.
This isn’t the first time Chris Cuomo has put his foot in his mouth. In October 2016, the pro-Hillary Clinton shill told viewers that it’s illegal for the public to view Clinton’s Wikileaks emails, but CNN can.
That was a total lie, and Cuomo later backtracked after being mercilessly trolled for his fake news.
Not surprisingly, Twitter reamed Cuomo over his latest gaffe. Some protective parents called Cuomo a “pervert.”

I don't get libs. They say all men are part of a rape culture, then tell girls to be tolerant of strange penises.
