CNN’s Cuomo: Protests and Mount Rushmore July 4 Celebration Not the Same — Would Be ‘Madness’ to Mandate Masks at Protests

On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Cuomo Primetime,” host Chris Cuomo argued that the planned early July 4 celebration at Mount Rushmore is not an “apples to apples” comparison to police brutality protests. Because the protests weren’t organized by official government entities and trying to enforce a mandatory mask rule during the protests, “would have been madness.”
