CNN's Chris Cuomo: Trump's Positive Tweet About Economy and Women's March an Insult to Women

“Isn't that insulting to all those women?"

On Saturday, President Trump tweeted about the great weather and its perfect condition for the Women's March. Additionally, Trump celebrated the thriving economy and its growth over the past year, which includes the lowest unemployment for women in nearly two decades:

"Beautiful weather all over our great country, a perfect day for all Women to March. Get out there now to celebrate the historic milestones and unprecedented economic success and wealth creation that has taken place over the last 12 months. Lowest female unemployment in 18 years!"

Such a nice, positive tweet, right?

 

 

According to left-wing Chris Cuomo, the President's sunny tweet was actually a dark storm of sexism, indicated by what was, according to the host of CNN's Cuomo Primetime, abject sarcasm.

During Cuomo's conversation with Kellyanne Conway Monday, the Trump administration's Counselor to the President pointed to the positive weekend tweet, to which Cuomo replied:

“The one where the president was tweeting that all the people were out there marching to say how great he's done?”

Huh??

"No, no, no," corrected Conway. "We have the lowest unemployment rate for women in 17 years."

Cuomo was unrelenting in his drive to mischaracterize the President's post. “You know that’s not why they were marching," he scolded.

The left-wing host called Trump's tweet an insult to the rallying ladies: 

“Isn't that insulting to all those women out there who are looking for leadership and looking for someone to get behind them and instead he makes a joke out of their March?"

Conway stopped Cuomo's biased castigation of Trump's message:

"Woah, woah woah. It's no joke that the women's unemployment rate is the lowest in 17 years. It is no joke that over a half a million new women entered the workforce on his watch.”

Not getting traction with the irrational, Cuomo decided to try feigned ignorance:

"It's no joke that [women] don't get equal pay and women like you have been forced to do it twice as hard as men to get to the same place and it’s not right, and you know it.”

Cuomo was, of course, wrong: apples to apples, women do not get paid less than men. Nevertheless, he continued:

"They're not getting equal pay. They deserve better, not jokes about why they're out there marching. These are very serious issues."

Conway stood her ground throughout the discussion, asking a very good question of the leftist pundit:

"Chris. I'm sorry. Wait a second. Women didn't get equal pay after eight years of President Obama?"

Apparently -- according to the media -- Obama's near-decade of female oppression was A-OK.
