During his show on CNN on Tuesday night, host Chris Cuomo claimed that it’s an “ugly tactic” for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to say rising antisemitism in the Democratic Party is being ignored by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
Cuomo Talks About Antisemitism
“This is not about Pelosi and the Democrats,” Cuomo said as he defended his reasoning. “That’s not where the antisemitism is coming from.”
Cuomo went on to add that McCarthy is still ending up in the same place as Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), “which is, you use any ugly tactic you can to blame something bad on Democrats. ‘At a time when the Jewish people face increased violence and threats,’ true, ‘antisemitism is on the rise[,]’ true. But where does he say it’s on the rise? ‘[I]n the Democrat Party and is completely ignored by Speaker Nancy Pelosi.'”
“This is not about Pelosi and the Democrats,” Cuomo added. “That’s not where the antisemitism is coming from. But that’s what he says.”
Don Lemon Speaks Out
Cuomo’s CNN colleague Don Lemon had similar comments last night.
“We’ve learned that hate flourishing from anti-Asian hate to anti-Semitism, to the trolls trying to bring America down like the QAnon congresswoman doubling down on her blatant anti-Semitism and ignorance today, comparing a vaccine logo — oh, God, to the yellow star,” Lemon said. “Well, it’s yellow, not gold, the Nazis forced Jewish people to wear.”
“It took leaders of her party five whole days to speak out about the lunacy of one freshman congresswoman,” he added. “The top three House Republicans putting out statements today. They have been in front of cameras.”

“They could have said something,” Lemon continued. “Talk is cheap. This is the party that threw Liz Cheney under the bus for telling the truth. It took them five days to condemn Marjorie Taylor Greene’s antisemitism.”
“That’s what the Republican Party is right now,” he concluded. “That’s who you are right now. Own it. The party of insensitive statements about the Holocaust and Jewish people. The party of antisemitism.”
