CNN’s hatred for President Trump and Republicans was boiling over on the eve of Election Day. Their animus was completely summed up throughout a Monday phase of Cuomo PrimeTime which featured New York Occasions columnist, the insufferably pompous Tom Friedman. In line with the duo, the Republicans have been only a bunch of “manure” consuming racists and whores making an attempt to fire up a Lebanese-style civil struggle whereas making an attempt to suppress votes, whereas President Trump was making an attempt to “put a bullet into the nation.”

Nothing about that description is an exaggeration. With simply hours till polls opened, they have been throwing every little thing they’d on the all. However, not less than, Friedman didn’t see the GOP as “enemies.”

Given what would unfold simply moments later, Chris “Fredo” Cuomo’s introduction of Friedman was made all of the extra ludicrous. “Few individuals are extra revered for a way they assume and the way they impart than our subsequent visitor. And he says one thing fairly scary. That this may very well be the final week of America as we all know it,” he proclaimed.

Given the chance to increase on that hyperbolic evaluation of the approaching days and weeks, Friedman proved himself to be the conductor of the loopy practice as he predicted there could be no peaceable switch of energy (Click on “increase”):

FRIEDMAN: Properly, Chris, it’s a actual risk that we will be unable to have a respectable switch of energy. That if the President does lose, does contest the vote, does create huge discrediting of the result, we might have a chronic interval the place we do not have a respectable switch of energy for the primary time in our historical past. And I consider the stress out of that, the financial dislocation, and the violence of that may very well be simply horrible.

So I am praying that does not occur. However I feel that we’ve got to understand that given the acute nature of this President, given the truth that he has no backside, it’s totally clear.

He went on to proclaim that former Vice President Al Gore had “took a bullet for the nation” when he misplaced in 2000. However “Donald Trump will put a bullet into the nation” this time round. “And when you do not assume that is true, then you have not been paying consideration the final 4 years,” he sneered.

 

 

To show that he might take issues to a good nuttier stage, Friedman instructed Cuomo that he might draw parallels to the Lebanese civil struggle (Click on “increase”):

CUOMO: So while you say America as we all know it, that supposes that something that he stirs up will not be quelled and remoted as simply an episode. You assume it may very well be a extra long-lasting impact?

FRIEDMAN: Yeah. You recognize, what I discovered, perhaps, from my very first task, Chris, masking a civil struggle in Lebanon, is while you break issues, when establishments break, when norms break in a elementary means, they’re very, very onerous to place again collectively once more.

And I am actually afraid we might see some actual breaking of norms. Trusting the vote counters. Simply consider the 2 closing messages of Biden and Trump, which you’ve got had on tonight. Biden’s fundamental message is “be collectively.” Trump’s fundamental message, “be afraid.”

If we now re-elect him, if we affirm his presidency, then that is not an outlier occasion. That is who we’re. That is who we can be seen as to the world,” he went on to stress, suggesting we’d be identical to China and Russia.

Transferring on, Fredo steered it was not truthful to position all of the blame on Trump and lashed out on the Republican Celebration. “We’ve got by no means seen Republicans swallow the type of manure that they’ve with a giant smile on their face for the previous few years,” he roid-raged.

And in response to Friedman, the GOP was “an enormous political brothel that principally rents itself out to the evening to whoever will energize its base.” His checklist of whores that entertained the Johns (aka the common Republican voter) through the years included Sarah Palin, the Tea Celebration, and Trump. “And sadly, for the final 4 years, the crimson gentle as at all times been on,” he spewed.

He took issues a step additional and argued that Republicans weren’t Individuals. “We’ve got seen nobody step out and shock us, so we won’t depend on them now. The one factor we will depend on, the one factor we will depend on are the American folks,” he instructed Fredo.

Holding his loopy practice rolling, the New York Occasions columnist steered the very best end result could be the GOP hanging onto the Senate by one vote to stop Center East-style, “rule or die” chaos from breaking out in America (Click on “increase”):

You recognize, this is able to not be my political want, essentially, Chris, however probably the very best end result for the nation could be that Biden wins the presidency. And perhaps the Republicans maintain the Senate by one seat. So shut, that they must be far more prepared to cooperate and collaborate with Biden. Additionally chasten by the actual fact they misplaced the presidency, that constructing their politics about white grievance is not a sustainable future for them.

What I concern is, if one facet will get completely worn out on this end result, individuals are so on edge, the nation is so — there may be a lot anger on the market. There may be a lot what you see within the Center East, rule or die, rule or die. Both I am in energy or I’m useless, or both I’m in energy or I’ve to maneuver to Canada or to wherever

Once more, Freidman could have spit all that bile at Republicans, however not less than “I do not assume Republicans are enemies.” Certain, Tom.

As for the accusations of making an attempt to suppress votes, Cuomo ended the Friedman interview with this tease for the subsequent phase: “Republicans simply misplaced one other try to suppress the vote. And, look, that is what it’s.

CNN’s Cuomo PrimeTime
November 2, 2020
9:35:19 p.m. Japanese

CHRIS CUOMO: Few individuals are extra revered for a way they assume and the way they impart than our subsequent visitor. And he says one thing fairly scary. That this may very well be the final week of America as we all know it. New York Occasions columnist and creator of “Thanks for being late,” Tom Friedman is right here. Brother Friedman, I paid some huge cash for this hair. You wish to scare it off my head. What does it imply?

TOM FRIEDMAN: Properly, Chris, it’s a actual risk that we will be unable to have a respectable switch of energy. That if the President does lose, does contest the vote, does create huge discrediting of the result, we might have a chronic interval the place we do not have a respectable switch of energy for the primary time in our historical past. And I consider the stress out of that, the financial dislocation, and the violence of that may very well be simply horrible.

So I am praying that does not occur. However I feel that we’ve got to understand that given the acute nature of this President, given the truth that he has no backside, it’s totally clear.

As I mentioned the opposite evening, you understand, Al Gore when he misplaced in a really shut finally Supreme Court docket-decided vote, he took a bullet for the nation. Donald Trump will put a bullet into the nation. And when you do not assume that is true, then you have not been paying consideration the final 4 years.

CUOMO: So while you say America as we all know it, that supposes that something that he stirs up will not be quelled and remoted as simply an episode. You assume it may very well be a extra long-lasting impact?

FRIEDMAN: Yeah. You recognize, what I discovered, perhaps, from my very first task, Chris, masking a civil struggle in Lebanon, is while you break issues, when establishments break, when norms break in a elementary means, they’re very, very onerous to place again collectively once more.

And I am actually afraid we might see some actual breaking of norms. Trusting the vote counters. Simply consider the 2 closing messages of Biden and Trump, which you’ve got had on tonight. Biden’s fundamental message is “be collectively.” Trump’s fundamental message, “be afraid.”

CUOMO: Now, you mentioned if Trump wins a second time period, “the world will not see us the America they as soon as knew however as Donald Trump’s America.” Do you assume that is the case now or do you assume there could be some added layer that might change America’s choice?

FRIEDMAN: Yeah. You recognize, Chris, each nation via its historical past has at all times — or many democracies have elected outliers. Generally, you understand, radical populists. However they often course appropriate. We’ve performed that right here in the US. If we now re-elect him, if we affirm his presidency, then that is not an outlier occasion. That is who we’re. That is who we can be seen as to the world.

And given the truth that Trump is such a transactional character, that’s how he offers with the world. We’d be seen a lot the best way China and Russia are seen: it’s simply one other transactional nation whose fundamental overseas coverage is present me the cash. And that might be a really completely different America, and that can be obtained in a really profoundly miserable means on the planet.

CUOMO: You recognize, when it comes to what decides the switch right here, I do not actually assume it is on Trump. I do not assume it is truthful on one stage to place it on him as a result of everyone knows what his capabilities are. It is on his occasion. And it was attention-grabbing for me to listen to former Governor Kasich say ‘I feel the occasion will step up.’ The place does that confidence come from? We’ve got by no means seen Republicans swallow the type of manure that they’ve with a giant smile on their face for the previous few years.

FRIEDMAN: You recognize, sadly, Chris, the Republican Celebration below Trump has develop into an enormous political brothel that principally rents itself out to the evening to whoever will energize its base. Whether or not it was Sarah Palin or the Tea Celebration or Trump. And sadly, for the final 4 years, the crimson gentle as at all times been on. We’ve got seen nobody step out and shock us, so we won’t depend on them now. The one factor we will depend on, the one factor we will depend on are the American folks.

You recognize, this is able to not be my political want, essentially, Chris, however probably the very best end result for the nation could be that Biden wins the presidency. And perhaps the Republicans maintain the Senate by one seat. So shut, that they must be a way more prepared to cooperate and collaborate with Biden. Additionally chasten by the actual fact they misplaced the presidency, that constructing their politics about white grievance is not a sustainable future for them.

What I concern is, if one facet will get completely worn out on this end result, individuals are so on edge, the nation is so — there may be a lot anger on the market. There may be a lot what you see within the Center East, rule or die, rule or die. Both I am in energy or I’m useless, or both I’m in energy or I’ve to maneuver to Canada or to wherever.

In some way perhaps the very best factor for the nation could be some type of balanced end result like that within the close to time period simply so we’ve got a pair years, Chris, to convey the temperature down, to rediscover one another, to cease taking a look at one another like we’re enemies. The place did that come from? I do not assume Republicans are enemies. You recognize?
