This Is CNN: Chris Cuomo Mocks Ted Cruz: “Must be the Christian in You”

 Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) appeared on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time Wednesday night where he was mocked by host Chris Cuomo over his Christian faith. The insult came in the midst of a nasty interview by Cuomo in which he constantly interrupted Cruz.

While discussing the response by Cuomo’s brother New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) to the COVID-19 China coronavirus pandemic, Cruz said he did not believe the governor knowingly killed people in nursing homes when he ordered elderly COVID-19 hospital patients moved there in the early months of the pandemic. Cuomo interjected, “That’s very charitable of you, Ted. Must be the Christian in you.”

Excerpt from rush CNN transcript:

CRUZ: I know your brother didn’t want those people to lose their lives.

CUOMO: Oh, no! Oh, well that’s good.

CRUZ: But you shouldn’t play politics with–

CUOMO: So, you don’t think he intentionally killed them? That’s good.

CRUZ: No, of course not.

CUOMO: That’s very charitable of you, Ted.

CRUZ: Of course not.

CUOMO: Must be the Christian (in you)–

CRUZ: But I do think we can have a very reasonable policy discussion about the policy mistakes in New York and New Jersey of sending COVID- positive patients into nursing homes. I think that was a very serious policy mistake.

CUOMO: Because that didn’t happen all over the country, right?

CRUZ: No, it didn’t happen in Texas.

For the record, Chris Cuomo says he is a Catholic: 

However liberals, regardless of faith, love to mock conservative Christians over their beliefs.
