We’re not ones to rush to the defense of CNN leftist Chris “Don’t Call Me Fredo” Cuomo, but this is ridiculous.
Cuomo was moderating the CNN LGBT town hall this week when Sen. Kamala Harris, with her brightest pandering shoes on, introduced herself by explaining that her preferred pronouns are “she, her, and hers.” In a normal world, this bit of shameless brown-nosery would have been met with groans and boos from the audience, but…well, we left the normal world behind some time ago.
Still, Cuomo apparently keeps at least one toe grounded in that old world, because he was inspired to make a little joke.
“She, her, and hers?” he asked. “Mine, too.”
Was it a great joke? No, but no one has ever accused Cuomo of being a comedian. Was it a harmful joke worthy of a mountain of internet rage from the left? Of course, because this is Clown World, where you get valuable prizes for being the wokest wokeman who ever typed on a keyboard.
“Painfully awkward,” one Twitter Twit remarked.
Yes, we’d agree. It’s “painfully awkward” that a grown woman would feel the need to explain her pronouns to a national television audience.
“It’s cool that the dem nominees had an LGBTQ town hall where nobody challenged Chris Cuomo’s disrespectful trans joke,” another idiot wrote.
Even the official voices of transgender America felt the need to weigh in.
“People’s pronouns are not a punchline,” the National Center for Lesbian Rights wrote on Twitter. “In a year where LGBTQ Americans are finally being recognized on the national Presidential stage, making jokes about gender pronouns is beneath your dignity. Please do better in the future.”
Oh, grow up. Be happy that anyone at all is taking any of this seriously, because that alone defies logic and common sense.
Cuomo, of course, had to go a-groveling.
“PLEASE READ: When Sen. Harris said her pronouns were she her and her’s, I said mine too. I should not have. I apologize,” he wrote. “I am an ally of the LGBTQ community, and I am sorry because I am committed to helping us achieve equality. Thank you for watching our townhall.”
But not as pathetic as this response from LGBT activist Angelica Ross: “What you should do @ChrisCuomo is not just apologize but admit what’s behind this is YOUR ignorance. You just showed you don’t understand the importance of pronouns, so how do you confidently crown yourself an ally? Learn from black & brown trans women @CNN”
Yeah, we’ll all make that our top priority.
