CNN’s litany of far-left hosts stepped in it again Wednesday by sanctimoniously, self-righteously panning President Donald Trump for promoting Goya Foods amid the left-wing-manufactured boycott of the largest Hispanic-owned food company in the U.S.
As seen below, the president took a break from his busy schedule Wednesday to show a little love to Goya, which has faced an onslaught of constant attacks from the left because CEO Robert Unanue had had the apparent indecency to compliment Trump.

For this — for posting a pic to show some love for the embattled company — the president attracted the ire of far-left hosts like Chris Cuomo and Anderson Cooper.
Cuomo, a man who appears to be a glutton for punishment, ranted late Wednesday about the photo by linking it to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
“Let’s start with this. The pandemic is in full effect. It’s feasting on us, especially red states whose governors followed Trump’s trail of denial to their own detriment,” he kvetched.
“You tell me how a president in the middle of a pandemic has got time for this bulls–t?! Are you kidding me?! Hawking products? Goya, I don’t care who it is. Resolute desk? This is what he’s resolute about?! Pandemic priorities?”
It’s ironic how Chris Cuomo’s flipping out over the Trump’s Goya photos “during a pandemic,” when he had his own brother on to make jokes with and hold a gigantic cotton swab as part of a gag. pic.twitter.com/fSG0JWA0H8

What he said about the coronavirus feasting on “red states” may just be the lie of the century. While it’s an oft-heard refrain in the left-wing bubble, the fact remains that the states hardest hit by the ongoing pandemic have been blue states.
Furthermore, the single state hardest hit by it is New York, which is run by Cuomo’s own brother, Andrew Cuomo. These are the facts.
More people died with coronavirus in New York City (population 8 million) than Texas (29 mil), Florida (21 mil), California (39 mil) and Georgia (11 mil) … combined. https://t.co/8CLb81l8u3

What a joke. Cuomo will say anything to try to pin his own COVID scandal on @realDonaldTrump.
Let’s review what happened on Cuomo’s watch:
– 6,000+ nursing home deaths
– 500% more nursing home deaths per capita than Florida
– 50%+ New York COVID deaths a result of local failures https://t.co/h7R5rfVsMY

Governor Cuomo loves to say look at the data. Here it is:
New York and California have had 410% more Corona deaths than Texas and Florida.
Yet the biased media tries to con you that the Dem NY/CA governors did a great job and that the Repub Fla/TX governors did not.

Yet not once has Cuomo ever confronted his brother about these facts. Instead, he’s preferred joshing around with his older brother like this is all a joke.
“Is it true… this was the actual swab that was being used to fit up that double barreled shotgun that you have mounted on the front of your pretty face?”

Continuing his rant Wednesday, the hypocritical far-left host also took shots at the president’s daughter Ivanka for also promoting Goya foods.
“His daughter Ivanka, top White House adviser. Are you kidding me? Marketing for a brand following calls for boycott after Goya’s CEO heaped praise on Trump last week. On your dime? In the middle of a pandemic? They’re selling beans,” he whined.
Below is the photo from Ivanka that triggered him:
If it’s Goya, it has to be good.
Si es Goya, tiene que ser bueno. pic.twitter.com/9tjVrfmo9z
— Ivanka Trump (@IvankaTrump) July 15, 2020
Despite being mercilessly attacked by the far-left press, Ivanka kept the photo up.
Cuomo’s colleague Anderson Cooper also had some harsh words for the president.
“This is our president and people are dying and people are getting sick and more will die and more will get sick and our economy is in shambles. We’re in a public health battle for our lives and our futures and our president is sitting there behind the Resolute Desk resolutely clutching at beans,” he complained Wednesday.
“Thumbs up. Orange. Grinning like he won a prize,” says @andersoncooper on Pres. Trump’s Goya photo.
“137,000 Americans dead and this is our self-proclaimed wartime President’s answer to it.” pic.twitter.com/aVeFJU5NmL

To hear these doomsday fear-mongers tell it, America is coming apart at the seams because of the coronavirus. But in reality, the nation is faring OK.
The left-wing media bases its doomsday theories on the fact that the number of coronavirus cases are indeed spiking across America. But missing from their conspiracy theorizing is any meaningful context, including the fact that testing is up.
“All of the ‘second wave’ states have dramatically increased their testing. This alone causes cases to rise, and is the single biggest reason they have,” J.B. Handley, a businessman known for co-founding the autism advocacy website Generation Rescue, explains.
Meanwhile, coronavirus deaths still remain extraordinarily low — thousands fewer, in fact, than they were during the height of the crisis in April:
Again, these are the facts.
What the likes of Cuomo and Anderson have been spewing, on the other hand, is propaganda, or so say their critics.
This is like an atomic bomb of gas lighting. Chris Cuomo is every single thing he just described there. He doesn’t every night. He literally interviews his Democrat Governor brother for the purposes of propaganda.

@ChrisCuomo sounds like an absolute propaganda bullshit machine
— JPatriot🇺🇸🦅💥 (@JPatriot_2020) July 16, 2020
Seems you left out the FACT that over 100,000 of the deaths are in Dem controlled and run areas. That FACT FIRST makes your childish little temper tantrum look deceitful and unprofessional. You aren’t a journalist. You are a PR spokesperson pushing political propaganda. Not facts
— Clark Griswold (@Cubskoolaid) July 16, 2020
Selll your propaganda – blame the president. CNN is not a news network. You are a rich phony who are clearly infected with the CNN Virus that hurts the country more than Covid.
