Cuomo: Violent Protests Allow Trump 'To Tweet About Looting Rather Than Murder By A Police Officer'



"Violence never works, how many protests have we had? How many nights have we gone through like last night? How many times have we burned down our own businesses, our own neighborhoods, and our own communities. Burning down your own house never works and never makes sense," says New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. "It dishonors Mr. Floyd's death. Mr. Floyd was not violent. Mr. Floyd was compliant."

"When you are violent it creates a scapegoat to shift the blame. It allows the president of the United States to tweet about looting rather than about murder by a police officer."

1. I suspect that diversion is likely the point of a good share of the looting.

Glad he is bringing attention to it. Its the most important reason to go along with the curfews,
IMHO.

3. He's been a reassuring and intelligent voice throughout this entire nightmare

I'm in New York and I'm grateful for his leadership.

5. Yes, an adult is in control, how radical.

i also like the extra coverage hes been getting from his relation to Chris, humanizing and continuing to call out the truth.

Its the best messaging weve gotten nationally, wish we had more!

2. I love this guy for being on top of everything, for guiding people's thinking about what they see.

Trump's is the language of a paramilitary leader, stirring the violence that rightful protesting is against to begin with.

Of course they do. That's why the Boogaloo bois and the neo-Nazis and the KKK and others are all out there being violent - to make it look like protesters are doing it, and to give Trump* something juicy to tweet about. Are we as a nation going to fall for this AGAIN?
