If a Fox News host had used that metaphor about Dreamers, heads would explode.
Paging the PC police!
On CNN this morning, when Republican congressman Chris Collins light-heartedly suggested that Dreamers should be free to pursue whatever career they like, including “CNN host,” Chris Cuomo responded:
“That’s a low bar, Congressman. You should have higher hopes for people than to get into the media, be used as a piñata for guys like you all the time.”
Wait a second: Dreamers who become CNN hosts would be treated like a “piñata?” Stereotyping? Cultural appropriation? God forbid a Fox News host had used that metaphor. We’ll have to see what the PC police have to say about that!
Note: given their pro-amnesty politics, some of us were wondering if illegal immigrants were already serving as CNN hosts.
Note segundo: Even in such a lighthearted exchange, Cuomo found it necessary to complain of mistreatment. Poor Chris: only takes down a reported $2.5 million a year.
CHRIS COLLINS: We’ve got to have a pathway to legal work status for the adults as well as the Dreamers. And if the dreamers end in citizenship, again, I don’t have a problem with it. These are kids living just like our, going to school with our kids, looking forward to living the American dream, whether they’re going to be a teacher, an engineer, or whatever profession, maybe a CNN host, that they choose to do.
CHRIS CUOMO: That’s a low bar, Congressman. You should have higher hopes for people than to get into the media, be used as a piñata for guys like you all the time.
