Former President Donald Trump issued a weighty statement about the suspension of Cuomo.

Jesse Kelly, political commentator: “NOTE: Andrew Cuomo (and now Chris Cuomo) only went down because DEMOCRATS decided to take them down. They’re clearing out the governor’s mansion for other New York Democrats. The GOP will never have enough backbone to really take down such an opponent.” He continued, “Also, the biggest loser in the Cuomo suspension is Don Lemon. He wasn’t so talented that Cuomo had to stay and do part A of the show with him every night. It’s the most important block in TV. Poor lemon needs his dad’s hand. Now, he is alone”.
John Cardillo, political commentator: “Fredo has finally been beaten.”
Grant Addison, The Washington Examiner: “Next let’s do that pilgarlic, water-carrying Stelter hack.”
Isaac Chotiner, The New Yorker: “Even if you think his personal conduct is bad, you have to admit that losing Cuomo is a blow to the press that will take at least five seconds to recover from.”
Joe Concha, The Hill: “Chris Cuomo is suspended indefinitely. It is hard to see how the 9pm anchor returns to the overwhelming evidence of journalistic anomalies. And if you ask who will replace at 9p, I have money on Acosta. He’s exactly what CNN has become in terms of pious partisanship. ”
Caleb Hull, political strategist: “Never forget that Chris Cuomo left his home while he knew he had COVID-19 and got into a fight with a cyclist. He then created a scene where he was ‘out of quarantine’ after two weeks as if he had never left. CNN never fired him for this.”
Lobby Logan, The Daily Caller: “Cuomo suspensions are small potatoes. give me a call when the fun is out and thousands of other media worse than cuomo are unemployed. “
