On Tuesday night, CNN’s Chris Cuomo engaged in a Twitter feud that he was not prepared to handle.
Cuomo retweeted an article about a 20-year-old boy purchasing an AR-15 gun, even though his license was expired so it was not legal for him to do so.
As many Twitter speculators pointed out, this article was fabricated — and Cuomo was caught in the middle of spreading a major lie.
An account named “Investigative Photog” posted a quote from 20-year-old Cody Davis stating, “I was able to buy an AR-15 in five minutes. I’m 20 and my ID is expired.”
And being the liberal star that he is, Cuomo pounced at the opportunity to spread this falsified story. Fortunately for the rest of America, other Twitter users read more into the story on this 20-year-old boy — and turns out, he never actually purchased anything.
Yup, more fake news from CNN. Surprised?
See the real story here —
Hey, @ChrisCuomo from CNN. Saw the article you retweeted: “I WAS ABLE TO BUY AN AR-15 IN 5 MINUTES”
Clearly, the article reads that “After he walked me through the paper, all five pages of it, I told him I changed my mind.”
Cuomo must have missed that critical part.
This young boy did not buy the guy. So he didn’t pass the background check to purchase a gun… because he never even tried to fill out the paperwork.
When Cuomo was called out on spreading lies, he tried to avoid the subject and discuss the kid’s age —
As Charles C.W. Cooke points out, the objective is not that the kid lied about purchasing a gun, the point is that Cuomo is now spreading lies too.
Of course, Cuomo responded by discussing an unrelated topic —
Cuomo just learned that pushing for gun control by spreading lies will not get him far. He is yet another CNN fake news star helping drag their network down.
