CNN anchor Chris Cuomo was quick to defend climate activist Greta Thunberg from "Trumpers" who mocked her on Thursday but was quickly reminded about the settlement his network recently made with Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann.
At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin was asked by reporters about Thunberg's call for countries to divest from fossil fuels, which he didn't exactly take too seriously.
Is she the chief economist? Who is she? Im confused, Mnuchin jokingly replied. "After she goes and studies economics in college, she can come back and explain that to us."
That didn't sit well with one particular CNN anchor.
"Why do these Trumpers think it is OK to go at a kid?" Cuomo tweeted, scolding the Trump administration.
Critics on social media quickly reminded Cuomo about the attacks Sandmann faced by his network, which led to a major settlement earlier this month.
"Didn't your garbage network just settle a nine-figure lawsuit for defaming a Catholic child at a pro-life march?" The Federalist co-founder Sean Davis asked.
"Chris, your network literally just settled with a Covington High School kid after you smeared him," political strategist Caleb Hull told the anchor.
"The name Nick [Sandmann] escape your mind?...

Fredo and his capos are already swimming with the fishes - they just don’t know it yet.
Leftists are like a dog I had that couldn’t remember “sit” and “stay” but could perfectly recall 200 variations on the word “cookie”.
How dare he!
LOL! Right on.
I disagree. Leftists know very well what they are doing. They just hope that YOU have a short memory. But, hey!, we're the elephants! :)
So I should listen to a 17 year old kid who knows sh** about science and economics. She belongs in school...not making this spewing her full time job.
I do not think suggesting a child who knows little about the real world to expand her knowledge is “ criticism”
“Leftists are like a dog I had that couldnt remember sit and stay but could perfectly recall 200 variations on the word cookie.”
Award winning quote of the day!
Really getting tired of the little Swedish brat’s act. If she wants to lecture the world on “climate” and influence global public policy, she can’t fall back on “Leave me alone. I’m just a kid.” It’s total b.s. It’s like a 17-year-old playing a professional sport. If you want to be a kid, be a kid. If you want to play in the big leagues, be prepared to be treated like everyone else who’s playing in the big leagues.
These people are crazy.
Is she a kid?
Or does she speak before the UN?
They can pretend to have it both ways but we do not have to.
Because we must believe the childrun. Its all for them.

And a specious defense of Thunberg in the first place.
She has thrust herself squarely in the middle of the debate making indefensible statements, shaming skeptics and self righteously carrying the torch for outrageously extreme positions.
Her age does not nor should it inoculate her from criticism of spewing crazy indefensible garbage.
Chris Cuomo is a punk bully wanna be tough guy. Take him the back of the room, slap him around a little...no more tough guy. Punk......(I hope the punk bully is reading this).
Biden is a punk bully wanna be tough guy too.
Thou must not speak the truth of actorvists.
CNN is ATT
Nick Sandmann is a better person than any employee of CNN
Fredo is just being Fredo here
He doesn’t realize they are not the same thing, by any standards
Greta is traveling the world looking for the spotlight and giving speeches to world leaders, she can be called out for that. She is searching for the media attention.
Sandman was just a kid wearing a Trump hat when others tried to provoke him and he just stood there. The media lied about what was going on, making the innocent child a public figure and in a negative spotlight at that. Sandman wasn’t looking for media attention
Any one can wear a Trump hat and not become a national story, even Sandman, Greta can wear her “save the whales” T shirt and not be a national story as well. But once she started lecturing us, the gloves are off. Sandman never lectured anyone, or demanded the media listen to him.
Kids who wish to not be in the national spotlight should stay out of it and not be brought into it by a deviant and evil media. Like Baron Trump, he does not campaign for his Dad, doesn’t do interviews, doesn’t do anything to get attention and yet the media and their Sycophants have called him names, wished his death, even went as far as hoping he would be locked in a cage with pedophiles so they can rape him.
Our media (including Fredo) is sick
