Chris Cuomo defends Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘concentration camp’ remark, says ‘extermination’ is for pests not people

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has once again found herself in the middle of controversy. And yet again, it’s because of her own doing.

It all started when the freshman congresswoman from New York referred to ICE detention centers as “concentration camps.” Yes, she actually accused her own country of running concentration camps on the southern border.

Now, anyone with any modicum of intelligence understands the kind of historical significance the term “concentration camp” carries with it. One would also think a sitting congresswoman would understand this as well but there ya go.

However, as idiotic and moronic as her comment was, Ocasio-Cortez still had her defenders in the media, mainly MSNBC’s Chris Hayes and CNN’s Chris Cuomo.

Cuomo’s defense of AOC’s comment is easily the worst of the two.

In defending AOC, Cuomo tries to correct Wyoming Congresswoman Lynne Cheney, telling her that extermination is pests not people. Forgive me if I’m wrong but Hitler attempted to totally eradicate the Jewish people, killing more than 6 million. I would say that’s an attempt at exterminating an entire group of people.
