CNN's Chris Cuomo proved that when he pushed a story about a lying kid who said he purchased an AR-15 without an ID. But Cuomo was busted, then continued to deflect from the fact that he pushed a fake story.
CNN's Chris Cuomo retweeted the account of one @usaphotodude quoting a reporter named Cody Davis on Tuesday. The tweet read, "I was able to buy an AR-15 in five minutes. I'm 20 and my ID is expired." There's only one problem: that never happened. The article itself states, "After [the sales representative] walked me through the paperwork, all five pages of it, I told him I changed my mind and wanted to think more before I bought an AR-15. He told me it wasn't a problem and listed the store hours if I wanted to come back. I then said thank you and walked back to my car."
The tweet actually says that the gut never filled out paperwork, a necessary step to purchasing a gun, which would then be run through the background check system. But Cuomo obviously didn't read that part or didn't care. And then deflected the conversation and lied further.
