Wednesday on Cuomo Prime Time, CNN blowhard Chris Cuomo claimed ludicrously that President Trump’s comment about the Proud Boys at the first presidential debate gave Iran the idea to send threatening emails claiming to be from the Proud Boys.
“Our government says, again, Iran is behind messages like this,” Cuomo said. “I say it twice because a lot of you are getting them. And yes, they are threatening whether you’re in Florida or Alaska or wherever they’re going now. It is not from the Proud Boys. Now, you will see threats in these emails, if you don’t vote for Trump, we have your information, we know where you live, we will come after you. A lot of people getting these have already voted, but still very scary to receive one, I’m sure.
“The choice to use the Proud Boys is also relevant,” he continued. “It is proof that the president’s influence at home and abroad is real because he talked this group up, and he made them a target of opportunity for our enemies. Remember his message to the hateful Proud Boys of ‘stand back and stand by’ at the last debate? Now we know at least one foreign actor was listening.”
Nonsense. It was the activist news media that brought up the Proud Boys’ name and that have distorted their significance ever since in an attempt to smear Trump.
