We’re solely six days into 2021 and CNN host Chris “Fredo” Cuomo already submitted an early contender for his most Fredo moments of the years (Right here’s his most Fredo moments from 2020). Simply as he and co-host Don Lemon took the helm of the community’s protection of the Georgia Senate runoffs within the wee hours of Wednesday morning, he had a little bit of a Freudian slip (or Fredian slip) and cheered “we gained” because it appeared that each Democratic candidates had been set to win their respective contests.

Leaning on a few Georgia themed songs, Cuomo yukked it up with Lemon on the backside of the 12:00 a.m. hour and touted the state going blue:

CHRIS CUOMO: Midnight Practice to Georgia.

DON LEMON: Midnight Practice to Georgia! And we’re speaking about Georgia, often ruby purple.

CUOMO: Um-hm.

LEMON: On the precipice of presumably turning blue and altering the Senate and altering, actually, not less than, the start of the course of the Biden presidency. Who would have thunk that this could have occurred in state like Georgia?

CUOMO: It’s uncommon. It’s a signal of the instances. The Republicans now hoping that this isn’t the evening that the lights went out in Georgia.

“So, I’ll inform you who gained tonight, we already know, you probably did. As soon as once more a wonderful show of democracy in motion,” Cuomo declared. And regardless of accusing Georgia of being a hotbed of voter suppression simply final summer time, he went on to declare that “We’re not getting any humorous enterprise out of the state of Georgia. The officers are content material with the way it’s going.”

 

 

Bringing it again round to confidence within the outcome, Cuomo boasted: “We all know on the numbers that we’ve got, we gained.” However Fredo realized what he simply blurted out and instantly added: “democracy gained.”

Certain, Fredo. That’s completely what you meant. No matter meaning.

Shortly thereafter, the 2 wagged their fingers at Pennsylvania, the place, on Tuesday, the state legislature opted to not seat a Democrat as a result of the race was tight and there have been reputable questions on how ballots had been counted in a single county versus one other.

After all, there was no context given as Cuomo equated the rowdy session to a former Soviet Bloc nation in Japanese Europe:

CUOMO: See what occurred in Pennsylvania as we speak?

LEMON: Yeah.

CUOMO: That’s what you might have occur.

LEMON: Yeah.

CUOMO: It might appear to be –

LEMON: Refusing to sit down a Democrat.

CUOMO: — a type of scenes from Japanese Europe, the place abruptly it’s like a donnybrook in center of an official briefing. I am stunned they did not begin throwing punches at one another as we speak. That is how unhappy and savage what’s happening is true now.

Depart it to Fredo to right away fall again on resorting to bodily violence to take care of a political disagreement. He does again a home terrorist group (Antifa), in any case.

That is CNN.

CHRIS CUOMO: Midnight Practice to Georgia.

DON LEMON: Midnight Practice to Georgia! And we’re speaking about Georgia, often ruby purple.

CUOMO: Um-hm.

LEMON: On the precipice of presumably turning blue and altering the Senate and altering, actually, not less than, the start of the course of the Biden presidency. Who would have thunk that this could have occurred in state like Georgia?

CUOMO: It’s uncommon. It’s a signal of the instances. The Republicans now hoping that this isn’t the evening that the lights went out in Georgia.

LEMON: [laughter]

CUOMO: That was two songs.

LEMON: You are stuffed with them.

CUOMO: That’s it, I’m completed. [John] Berman was going to present you that one. Now, he’s going to have consider one thing else.

So, I’ll inform you who gained tonight, we already know, you probably did. As soon as once more a wonderful show of democracy in motion. We’re not getting any humorous enterprise out of the state of Georgia. The officers are content material with the way it’s going. We now have a protracted approach to go, counting might take a while. I don’t anticipate it to be referred to as tonight, however we can be going by.

However already, we all know on the numbers that we’ve got, we gained, democracy gained. Normally a particular election after a common, you have got about 50 p.c falloff in who votes. Right here, you have got 5 million voted in Georgia in November. We’re undoubtedly over four-and-a-half million.

LEMON: 4.6 million individuals voted in contrast — for runoff that is actually good.

CUOMO: Big.

LEMON: And let’s not overlook Chris, that is occurring as we’re going into joint session of Congress the place Biden’s electoral victory will formally be licensed. After which you have got all these people, these Republicans who’re going to attempt to cease it. However they cannot actually, legally. The President have been pressuring the Vice President to cease it, which he can’t actually do. He does not have the facility to do. We’re in the midst of a pandemic. What else might we’ve got happening proper now, particularly when it considerations politics on this nation?

CUOMO: See what occurred in Pennsylvania as we speak?

LEMON: Yeah.

CUOMO: That’s what you might have occur.

LEMON: Yeah.

CUOMO: It might appear to be –

LEMON: Refusing to sit down a Democrat.

CUOMO: — a type of scenes from jap Europe, the place abruptly it’s like a donnybrook in center of an official briefing. I am stunned they did not begin throwing punches at one another as we speak. That is how unhappy and savage what’s happening is true now.
