During his Monday show on CNN, host Chris Cuomo blamed coronavirus deaths in America “because too many were in denial” and pointed to Trump’s leadership.
Cuomo said the death toll “has gotten this bad because too many were in denial, and yes, because we had a president that played to that because he thought it worked for him and so did his party. And yes, the media, too. We haven’t always played up the death count with the urgency that we did in the beginning.”
“Why” he asked “because it seemed to fall on deaf ears. Me included, and it was wrong. But tonight, we do what is right. Do you know that we’ve never once stopped to honor the dead? We have never once come together as a nation to mourn. Because we have never really wanted to own the reality.”
“These deaths came because of how we denied the reality in this country,” says @chriscuomo as the US passes the grim milestone of 500,000 Covid-19 deaths. “…It got this bad because too many were in denial.” https://t.co/q8teeykMZu pic.twitter.com/M56tl8eF1n
