CNN’s Cuomo Rebukes Santorum for Saying ‘Fake News’: ‘Don’t Say That BS on This Show’ squib

One of Chris Cuomo’s “Great Debates” got pretty tense Monday night when the CNN anchor chastised CNN political commentator and former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum for using President Trump’s favorite nickname for the network during a heated discussion with fellow network contributor Bakari Sellers.

Ahead of Tuesday evening’s State of the Union, the president said he’s not taking off the table the possibility of declaring a national emergency to build his long-promised border wall. Cuomo asked if the wall was worth either another government shutdown or such a “national emergency,” leading Sellers to note that Trump had promised that Mexico was going to pay for the wall.

While Sellers railed against the wall, Santorum began needling him about the existing structures along the border, asking him if he wanted to tear those down if he feels “they’re not necessary.” Cuomo eventually interjected, noting that border-patrol agents have said such barriers are helpful to thwarting illegal crossings but have not claimed that the construction of new walls are a top priority for border security.
