CNN is consistently in last place and a move by one of their network’s most visible reporter/commentators isn’t likely to help at all.
On Wednesday, Kimberly Corban, in an ad for the NRA, recounts her nearly two-hour sexual assault in college. She goes on to say that she had come to grips with the fact that her life was likely coming to an end that horrible night in college.
As the ad comes to an end, Corban states that if someone were to try and assault her again the assailant would find themselves looking down the barrel of a gun and then goes on to thank the NRA for fighting for her gun rights.

Well, this apparently didn’t sit well with CNN’s Chris Cuomo. He appears to be actually mocking Corban for saying that she’s going to protect herself.

It’s truly unbelievable why Cuomo would think a woman protecting herself would be an issue or a problem. His comment was universally condemned with negative response after negative response.
Hi @ChrisCuomo. Looks like you forgot to tag me. Care to chat about this?

You might want explain this tweet a little better to those of us who’ve actually had to face predators in our own homes and defend ourselves without a big strong man like yourself?

Are you really judging a rape victim for her decision to be armed?https://t.co/dCr1Uk9xgU

You do know she is a survivor, a rape victim , right?

You should probably take a moment and google who Kim Corban is, Chaplinksy.

God bless America where women can protect themselves.

WTF would you dump on a rape victim, @ChrisCuomo?
This is repulsive.
Image what you would say on your show tonight if President Trump had tweeted what you did?
