In a deranged rant Wednesday, far-left CNN political demagogue Chris Cuomo — a man who’s falsely listed by Wikipedia as a “journalist” — likened congressional Republicans to “starving snakes,” “Mr. Green Eggs and Ham,” “ReTrumplicans,” “QAnon kooks” and “pirates.”
Angry over the majority of Republicans naturally opposing former President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial, the far-left host even went so far as to accuse Republicans of stymieing the Biden administration’s efforts to root out and apprehend the Capitol rioters.
“What’s happening in Washington deserves your attention. It may be as dangerous as the pandemic. My question is how many red flags do we need? Homeland Security just put out a warning of more possible violence to come from violent anti-government extremists, fueled by false narratives that ‘could continue to mobilize to incite or commit violence,'” Cuomo’s rant began.
“Now, this? That’s what the GOP has to say about this threat. Why? The only response they’ve had to the threat is to keep Biden from getting ahead of Homeland Security, to head up the attack against this problem. Why?”
Senate Republicans like Josh Hawley have been holding up President Joe Biden’s pick for DHS secretary, Alejandro Mayorkas, because Mayorkas has been unable to reconcile how he’ll be able to “enforce federal law and secure the southern border” given his would-be boss’s desire to essentially open the borders.
NEW — Senator Hawley blocks procedural move to bypass full committee consideration of Biden’s Homeland Security nominee.

Cuomo of course neglected to mention this because he’s not a real “journalist”.
Listen to his so-called “analysis” below:
He continued by making the case that Senate Democrats should hog all the power in the legislative body, despite only holding 50 percent of the seats, because Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is a “starving snake.”
“My argument and it is why, I caution Democrats, wanting a power-sharing deal with McConnell that that is like insisting on petting a starving snake. The big mouth is gone. But the ReTrumplican chorus remains, echoing his animus, and hungry for more chaos,” he said.
“Think about it! Not a word about the ton of terrorists, who say they acted not just on behalf of Trump, but because Trump told them to act. No comment from the leadership. Why?” he asked.
Though some of the Capitol rioters have indeed tried to claim in self-defense that Trump had ordered them to storm the Capitol, not a single shred of evidence has emerged to prove this claim. But once again Cuomo, of course, neglected to mention the actual facts because he’s not a real “journalist.”
“Cruz, Hawley, the senators desperate to be outspoken, Mr. Green Eggs and Ham, himself, yet so quiet on how wrong this was. Why?” the CNN host continued.
Sens. Ted Cruz and Hawley have both condemned the Capitol rioters. Conversely, Cuomo has never once condemned the violent Black Lives Matter and Antifa extremists who left 700 police officers injured, over 150 buildings damaged and at least 23 people dead. In fact, he went on to defend the BLM/Antifa extremists in the same breath.
“If you listen to [Cruz and Haley], they say ‘We’re against violence, we’re against extremism, on both sides.’ But while the fight against racism, to them, is really just an excuse to riot, right, ‘BLM, bad! Antifa, like al-Qaeda,’ but the Oath Keepers, QAnon, the Proud Boys, you know, the groups that the FBI are looking at? Silence!” he said.

“Yesterday, they had a chance to separate the GOP from the idea of what savaged our Capitol. And they voted to not even follow their duty under the Constitution. They just want to let Trump and this contagion continue to spread,” the far-left host continued.
“If they won’t do anything, to speak out against it, or hold the motivator to account, they must want more of the same. Just listen to their twisted thinking,” he said.
He then played clips of various congressional Republicans slamming the Democrats’ second impeachment trial against Trump as “vindictive.”
Considering that impeachment is designed to remove a sitting president, but Trump has already left office voluntarily, they had a point, no?
“You know what’s ‘vindictive,’ meaning seeking revenge? A coup. You know what’s vindictive? A Confederate flag paraded through our Capitol that you say nothing about. You know what’s vindictive? People forcing you to hide, you Cruz! You hid in fear. You should have hid. We get it, because they were looking for you. That’s vindictive, by definition, seeking revenge,” Cuomo continued shrieking.
“You know what that is? Inciting domestic terror, to attack the Capitol, because you lost, that is vindictive. If you’re going to have a talking point, apply it to the right things,” he said.
Two things can be true at once — that the Capitol rioters were motivated by vindictive rage, and that congressional Democrats are likewise motivated by vindictive rage.
Cuomo then had the audacity to bring up the Benghazi hearings that CNN and other left-wing networks had spent years dismissing, downplaying and ignoring.
“This is the same party that held Benghazi hearings, for years, who now think we have to forget all about this attack on our Capitol. They just move on, why? ‘Well, people died in Benghazi!’ You remember that? ‘People died.’ Yes, yes, one fewer than died in the Capitol. Why doesn’t it matter?” he said.
“If they were not hell-bent on taking us all to hell in a hand basket, why would Mitch McConnell go from ‘Trump provoked this and fed that mob lies,’ remember, he said that, and pleading ‘We need time. Let me move this trial. It must get due consideration. The President must have time to prepare,’ why would he say that, and then immediately go to voting to dismiss the trial before it even starts? He wants the chaos,” Cuomo ranted.
Or because he recognizes that Trump isn’t responsible for the riot?
“They want to comfort our attackers by doing so. Again, just think about a better reason. Why would House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy go to Florida tomorrow to kiss the ring of the rogue former president? Why? There’s only one reason. To stay close to the man who is the king of the chaos and the crazies,” Cuomo continued.
“Matt Gaetz, a Florida-nobody going to Wyoming tomorrow, to smear a top Republican, who spoke up against the king? The trip is a hit job on Liz Cheney. That’s all it is. Why? She voted to impeach Trump. No one speaks against this guy. No one, why? Think about it,” Cuomo continued.
FYI, 74 million “crazies” voted for the former president, and according to polling data, the vast majority of them don’t blame him for the Capitol riots:
Cuomo went on to trash duly elected Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, whom he labeled a “QAnon kook,” for the apparent crime of defending her Second Amendment rights, and suggested that congressional Republicans are a lethal danger to people.
He eventually concluded by describing the GOP as a “gang of pirates.”
“And for the rest of you, remember where their head is. Trump didn’t get us here alone. Think about those who remain, who’ve sent every signal that they want to be every bit of his animus and more,” he said.
“Silent about the insurrection, slowing Homeland Security’s ability to fight the same people that did this, silencing any who fight for the old GOP, promoting people who play at killing Nancy Pelosi, and members of the FBI, these, who want to bring weapons into Congress, but don’t want metal detectors, subverting the Constitution to clear Trump, slow-walking pandemic response, who does all of these things, unless you want chaos?” Cuomo said. “GOP used to stand for Grand Old Party. Now it’s like Gang of Pirates!”
FYI, this is NOT journalism. It’s spiteful, dishonest and radically far-left demagoguery. In other words, THIS is CNN …
