Chris Cuomo Goes Off Over House Failing to Pass Anti-Hate Resolution Unanimously: ‘Congress, Please Do Your Damn Jobs!’

Chris Cuomo went off Thursday night over the failure of the House to unanimously pass a resolution condemning hate. (The measure passed 407-23.)

As part of his “Closing Argument” segment on Cuomo Prime Time, the host lambasted both parties for dropping the ball on the issue. Cuomo called out Democrats for not explicitly condemning Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

“[T]hey drafted this resolution … to condemn anti-Semitism as a middle ground consequence,” Cuomo said. “But no naming of Omar, and no loss of assignments … This should have been simple! Either people who say ugly things get called out or they don’t!”

The CNN host then called out the 23 Republicans who voted against the resolution.

“If you can’t get unanimous consent on not bashing Jews, and Muslims, and other minorities, what will they ever agree on unanimously?!”

He added, “Congress, please do your damn jobs!”
