cnn’s chris cuomo said thursday that calling a reporter a purveyor of “fake news” is the same as using a racial slur.while hosting cnn’s “new day,” cuomo read aloud a tweet from president trump accusing cuomo of failing to ask sen. richard blumenthal about his military record, then proceeded to throw a fit.cuomo had in fact asked blumenthal about his military record, and played the clip of the interview to prove it.blumenthal avoided answering cuomo’s question. instead, he talked about comments made by trump’s supreme court nominee neil gorsuch.“literally the first point that i made in the interview,” cuomo said. “the president, with all due respect, is once again off on the facts. that’s not something that any of us have any desire to say on a regular basis, but it keeps being true.”“‘fak
