On Tuesday, far-left CNN anchors Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon did a complete 180 as they stated that former Vice President and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden needs to address the left-wing rioting that is taking place in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
The riots come in response to a viral video that showed police shooting resident Jacob Blake.
Cuomo said, “You have COVID and Kenosha, Don, and what’s happening in Wisconsin, it’s a Rorschach test for where this country is, and I think it probably represents the biggest threat to the Democratic cause.”
Lemon replied, “You took the words right out of my mouth.”
Cuomo added, “That’s because we’re reading from the same teleprompter.”
Lemon said, “That’s all you. This is where I come in. We’ll get to that. But when you said it’s too little too late, I don’t know about that. I mean, we still have a lot of time left until election day. I do think that this —what you said was happening in Kenosha is a Rorschach test for the entire country. I think this is a blind spot for Democrats. I think Democrats are hoping this will go away, and it’s not going to go away.”
He added, “I think maybe Joe Biden may be afraid to do it. I’m not sure. Maybe he won’t, maybe he is. He’s got to address it. He’s got to come out and talk about it. He’s got to do a speech like Barack Obama did about race. He’s got to come out and tell people that he’s going to deal with the issue of police reform in this country, and that’s what’s happening now is happening under Donald Trump’s watch. When he is the president, Kamala Harris is the vice president. Then they will take care of this problem. But guess what? The rioting has to stop. Chris, as you know, and I know it’s showing up in the polling, it’s showing up in focus groups. It is the only thing right now that is sticking.”
The situation in Kenosha continues to get worse and Democrats couldn't care less.
On Tuesday evening, shootings broke out across Kenosha, Wisconsin after Democratic leadership failed to step in and suppress the mass riots from radical leftists.
The shootings took place after Democrat Governor Tony Evers reportedly denied help from the Trump Administration to quell the violence.
“I got a call today from congressman who represents that district, and from Senator Johnson as well, really just pleading for help, saying that the local sheriff and the mayor and police chief need some additional assistance,” said White House chief of staff Mark Meadows. “I got on the phone right away and offered assistance in the form of additional National Guard help.”
Meadows continued, “The president was on the phone with the governor today … we have National Guard standing by, and if the general for the National Guard [in Kenosha] needs additional help, we’re there to do it, but today, that request was denied by the governor.”
President Donald Trump also tweeted about the situation: “Governor should call in the National Guard in Wisconsin. It is ready, willing, and more than able. End problem FAST!”
