On Friday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Cuomo Primetime,” host Chris Cuomo criticized Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) for his questioning of White House Coronavirus Task Force member Dr. Anthony Fauci about protests and religious gatherings during the pandemic by saying that it’s wrong of Jordan to be “worried about the protests” when people in Ohio are dying and being hospitalized.
Cuomo also stated, “This isn’t about keeping people from praying, it’s about praying that people act more like Jesus commanded, being your brother’s keeper.”
After playing part of the exchange between the two, Cuomo stated that Fauci can’t make the rules about protest restrictions.
After playing another clip, where Jordan asked about the constitutionality of treating protests and religious gatherings differently, and Fauci stating that he’s making a general statement that crowds should be avoided, Cuomo said, “Fauci’s a practicing Catholic, what does Jordan want to say?
This isn’t about keeping people from praying, it’s about praying that people act more like Jesus commanded, being your brother’s keeper.”
