Watch: CNN Hosts Ridicule Brit Hume and Trump over Biden Mask Tweet
CNN hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota mocked Fox News’ Brit Hume on Tuesday following his tweet featuring Joe Biden wearing a mask. Hume essentially suggested that Biden looked weak or ridiculous and that was why Donald Trump was avoiding masks.
The New Day hosts found Hume’s assertion laughable considering the huge number of Americans who approve of wearing masks at this time. The President retweeted Hume’s tweet, so he was the subject of the discussion as well.
“The medicine of this is clear: The CDC recommends that everyone wear masks,” Berman said.”Brit Hume thinks this is smart politics.”
“So the President is retweeting a picture of something recommended by the CDC that a vast majority of people support. It’s wildly popular with voters. So who’s owning whom here?” he wondered.
Co-host Aliysn Camerota agreed with Berman that this was not a good look for Hume or Trump.
“What Brit Hume is doing, he’s trying to call back the memory of Mike Dukakis in the tank, and he’s trying to suggest that this is an iconic image, somehow, of Joe Biden, that this is what President Trump wants to avoid,” Camerota said.
