Chris Cuomo has his own interview show on CNN Prime Time
I wanted to acknowledge that Chris Cuomo now has his own hour as a news analysis and interviewer on CNN, following Anderson Cooper, prime time, weeknights (and preceding Don Lemon).
Cuomo follows Piers Morgan and then Smerconish (now on Saturday mornings) on that spot.
Cuomo, while nominally a mainstream Democrat like his father, is known for detailed questioning of people he interviews, as to the logical consistency of the claims they make. He often seems harder on the Left than on the Right. Cuomo’s analytical questioning style seems to come from his education first as an attorney (he has a JD).
Last night, for example, he gave Cory Booker (D-NJ) a hard time given his remarks connecting Trump and Kirstjen Nielsen with racism.
It would be a natural question, would Chris Cuomo be a good candidate for president in 2020 for the Democratic Party? Hardly anyone (except Anderson Cooper) knows policy better, as being qualified for “the job”. Or would he seem too elitist?
I keep hearing other reports from mid-America in some towns (like Youngstown, OH) that Trump has been good for them, as far as more manufacturing jobs coming back. They seem not to care about Trump’s language.
