CNN’s Chris Cuomo lashed out at those reminding him of the awkward truth of his own hypocrisy over “polite and peaceful” protests.

The CNN host was called out on Twitter after he posted comments condemning President Donald Trump and the protests that turned violent at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday. Apparently lacking any self-awareness, Cuomo fired verbal shots at Trump and those who “stoked the flames” that he believed led to the deadly demonstrations at the U.S. Capitol.

“You can’t control what you caused. And this is what you will he remembered for,” he tweeted in response to the president’s call for protesters to “stay peaceful.”

“They are not peaceful- because you are not about peace,” he vented.

“Those who stoked these flames must be remembered. They fed lies and moved people to exactly what we are seeing,” Cuomo lectured in another tweet responding to Fox News host Laura Ingraham, with the hashtag #Remember.

But soon, Cuomo’s comments from last year’s rioting and protests resurfaced and exposed his double standard.

“Please, show me where it says protesters are supposed to be polite and peaceful,” Cuomo had said during a CNN broadcast last June.

“This hasn’t worn well…,” Larry Elder tweeted.

Cuomo shot back at his critics, not by clarifying or defending his remarks, but by flipping the script and declaring “shame on you.”

Cuomo’s hypocrisy is only a part of the countless attacks by Democrats and those on the left.


And Wednesday’s events renewed the Democrats’ call to arms as they clamored for Trump to be removed from office, impeached and basically tarred and feathered since they held him personally responsible for the violence. These same critics, like Cuomo, have a short memory.
