On Tuesday, CNN' News Day's host Chris Cuomo spoke about the White House Chief of staff John Kelly's comments on the Fox News. In an interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham, he commented on the controversy over monuments of historical figures.
Now, Chris Cumon said that John Kelly's comments on the Fox News were bigotry being ignored and rationalized. Check the details here:
In an interview with "The Ingraham Angle" host Laura Ingraham, he said that history is history, and there were certain things back in history that was not so good, but other things were very very good. He openly talked about Robert E. Lee who was an honorable man.
He adds Robert E. Lee was the man who gave up his country to fight for his state 150 years ago which was very crucial decision for his country. It means that during that period, loyalty always stood first but in today's reality everything changes.
Lack of the compromising quality is what led to the Civil war. He added:
And men and women of good faith on both sides made their stand where their conscience had them make their stand.
Now, Chris Cuomo responded on this thought claiming that Kelly Missed in his remarks. He proclaimed:
He missed the big word, slavery
Cuomo said that it was not a crisis of conscience instead was about the slavery. He added:
Kelly is a respected guy. How he leads men and women, how he has organized, his attention to duty, that’s all true. I’ve checked it ten ways from Sunday. It’s true. But giving him credit for a political modulating ethos is false. It’s always false. The idea that he would control the president’s political instincts to play toward division was always an empty promise.
Cuomo questioned whether all these thoughts are making it the same or worse. He explains that the crisis of conscience and thinking about the monuments in a different way will make these people want to take them down and it's all bigotry of being ignored and rationalized. Adding, Kelly will not be going to make it better.
