Tucker Carlson shook up the media elite when he aired audio of CNN anchor Chris Cuomo.
The liberal newsman was on the phone with Michael Cohen, the disgraced former lawyer of Donald Trump.
Carlson appears concerned over apparent allegations of assault.
It appears some people from ABC have accused Cuomo of inappropriate behavior. Now, Trump is piling on:
President Donald Trump reacted Wednesday to the audio of a phone call with CNN’s Chris Cuomo and the president’s former lawyer Michael Cohen about allegations of sexual harassment.
“Will Fredo be fired by Fake News CNN?” Trump asked, using his favorite nickname for the CNN anchor. “He speaks with great disrespect about women, and it will only get worse.”
The leaked audio reveals Cuomo speaking with disbarred and convicted felon, Michael Cohen, about apparent assault allegations.
Cuomo makes some crude comments about former coworkers, saying he doesn’t need to act “like Charlie Rose” to get women.
He then goes on to attack unnamed people who appeared to accuse him of inappropriate behavior.
President Trump called out CNN over this dustup, asking if they were going to fire “Fredo” over this new leak.
He accused Cuomo of showing “great disrespect” toward women, warning it “will only get worse.”
In the wake of the #MeToo movement, numerous media figures have been taken down over allegations of assault.
That includes Charlie Rose and Matt Lauer. Could this conversation suggest Cuomo’s next?
It appears that Cuomo is asserting his innocence to Cohen. Although, Cohen is hardly the man you want to confide it.
(Cohen turned on his former client, President Trump, only to end up in prison himself.)
While it seems Cuomo is bragging about his prowess with the ladies, Carlson notes the man seems agitated.
Is it because he’s upset over being wrongfully accused? Or perhaps he fears that he is being outed for something he’s done?
Trump called on CNN to respond to the troubling audio, but will they? The network has frequently attacked Trump in the past over unsubstantiated allegations.
