Chris Cuomo compares Lindsey Graham to 'lemmings of alt-right groups'

On Cuomo Prime Time Thursday night, Chris Cuomo went after Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for his recent comments concerning the second impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump. After House impeachment managers played video of the violent insurrection at the Capitol on January 6, which Trump is accused of inciting, Graham called the move by the managers “offensive and absurd.” Graham also parroted one of his Republican colleagues and questioned whether House Speaker Nancy Pelosi may have had something to do with the chaos that day, despite the fact that Pelosi was one of the targets of the insurrectionists.

“The dangerous unknown is what will happen next when the worst of us realize their attack was seen as righteous by the right. That takes us to Senator Graham. He may have secured top billing with every alt-right and white nationalist group in this country by echoing their animus,” Cuomo said. He later added, “I have only heard that from this senator and lemmings of alt-right groups on social media and my radio show. Those are the only people. That's who he's echoing, and he's doing it on purpose.”
