CNN anchor Chris Cuomo on Tuesday didn’t flinch as network political commentator Angela Rye spewed that the “concentration camps” on the southern border will soon lead to “death camps” if America doesn’t change course. Rye appeared with conservative Steve Cortez to discuss far-left Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s use of the term “concentration camps,” a move that created a furor.

Remark - Cuomo - Segment - Hairs - Comment

And that's why it is a Great Debate, Angela Rye and Steve Cortes. Steve Cortes, with the new definition from her, I say concentration camps because that's how they are defined internationally. That's what these are. I am not equating with stigma of the Nazis and the Jews. Leave that part aside. Satisfied?
