New Day co-anchor Chris Cuomo on Thursday continued the media freak out over Donald Trump picking a climate change doubter to run the Environmental Protection Agency. He even outrageously compared those with similar beliefs to past opposition of interracial marriage.
While discussing the appointment of Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to run the EPA, Cuomo ranted to CNN co-anchor Alisyn Camerota, “People thought the world was flat.” He continued, “People thought blacks and whites shouldn’t marry. People thought blacks shouldn’t be equal. That doesn’t mean you accept it as fact as a leader.”
CUOMO: Ninety nine percent of the scientific community says that global warming is impacted by man.
CAMEROTA: CNN says the number is 90 percent. But here’s the deal, Republicans, a lot of Republicans and certainly something like 30 percent of voters, and they voted for Trump, agree with him. And they think that in terms of the predictions and the forecasts, this is where it comes in, that it’s far from settled. The predictions and the forecast.
CUOMO: People thought the world was flat.
CUOMO: People thought blacks and whites shouldn’t marry. People thought blacks shouldn’t be equal. That doesn’t mean you accept it as fact as a leader.
