    CNN's Chris Cuomo rips 'Trumpers' for attacking 'kid' Greta Thunberg, Critics Remind


    https-::www.foxnews.com:media:chris-cuomo-greta-thunberg-cnn-nick-sandmann-covington



    CNN anchor Chris Cuomo was quick to defend climate activist Greta Thunberg from "Trumpers" who mocked her on Thursday but was quickly reminded about the settlement his network recently made with Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann.

    At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin was asked by reporters about Thunberg's call for countries to divest from fossil fuels, which he didn't exactly take too seriously.


    “Is she the chief economist? Who is she? I’m confused,” Mnuchin jokingly replied. "After she goes and studies economics in college, she can come back and explain that to us."

    That didn't sit well with one particular CNN anchor.

    "Why do these Trumpers think it is OK to go at a kid?" Cuomo tweeted, scolding the Trump administration.

    Critics on social media quickly reminded Cuomo about the attacks Sandmann faced by his network, which led to a major settlement earlier this month.

    "Didn't your garbage network just settle a nine-figure lawsuit for defaming a Catholic child at a pro-life march?" The Federalist co-founder Sean Davis asked.

    "Chris, your network literally just settled with a Covington High School kid after you smeared him," political strategist Caleb Hull told the anchor.

    "The name Nick [Sandmann] escape your mind? Or are @CNN employees ordered to pretend you didn't pay him millions for smearing him a year ago for not supporting your left-wing politics?" radio host Derek Hunter reacted.

    Cuomo is kind of a tool but regardless of Sandman, it's more than a bit ironic that grown-ass adults who call others "snowflakes" are losing their **** cuz a 16 year old girl cares about the environment.

    Sandmann had like... a fraction of the attention the right continues to give Greta. The comparison is very poor

    To be fair, though, Greta is trying to be a public figure and she keeps putting herself out there. Sandman never wanted to be a public figure in the first place.

    Absolutely. But when facts failed against Greta, narratives were created. From attacks to her being mentally ill, a puppet for Soros or whatever, ect.

    Its impressive she still wants to lead after all the crap some have created about her

    I can't imagine living in conservative crazy world, where it's easier to believe that everyone on the left is paid by Soros than that a young girl who's going to be on this planet for another 60 years or so actually gives a **** about the environment.

    I care about the environment also. Just today I picked up someone’s trash that blew in my yard.

    I cant believe the left wing hiding behind little Greta. We all care about it, the problem for a lot of us ,is when governments sees this as opportunity to make money off while saying they are saving the planet and it does nothing. Or when questioning their tactics , people get attack and called all sorts of names. You act like a bunch of school children , like Greta. Governments screw everything up, People attitudes and technology is the answer.
    I admire china because their basic dictatorship is allowing them to actually turn their economy around on a dime.

    Yes. Because the left was silent about climate change prior to her coming around

    Well obviously someone pulled some strings to get her to speak at the UN and other high profile events like Davos. They're not just going to let any teenager with an opinion speak.

    But, there's been a long-standing trend amongst the crazier conservatives that outspoken liberals are plants paid by wealthy liberals, particularly Soros, and it occasionally creeps into more mainstream conservative beliefs. Or, to put it another way, there are some on the right who refuse to believe that anyone could possibly be liberal unless they're getting free cell phones from Obama or being paid by someone like Soros, and that's where this nonsense comes from.

    Sandmann was at a rally where he cared for the unborn being murdered and the left went bonkers about the lies made against him.
    He's smiling himself to the bank just like Greta probably will.

    Being born is a prerequisite to being murdered.

    And greta was speaking about the environment, which she deeply cares for. What's the problem?

    I am not trying to debate abortion. I know you think the unborn is a clump of cells.
    BOTH sides are butt hurt for both kids standing up for what they believe in. Your post made it seem it was only one side that was butt hurt.

    Anybody can repeat talking points. But I wonder if she realized how dirty it is to build that boat she came across in, the one that I understand has 2 diesel engines on board. One thing is for sure she will never have to work for a living like the rest of us.

    That statement hardly sounds like anyone is losing anything. Well, maybe the ability to suppress a laugh.
