CNN host Chris Cuomo on Friday apologized for airing an edited video tweeted out by President Trump showing images of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Centers, a video attempting to criticize Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.).

“I apologize to the families of the victims of 9/11 and people that were there that day,” Cuomo said before showing the clip. “That video should not be used in political hit ads. I’m using it to make a point. I didn’t make the ad. If I thought about it more, I don’t think I’d even play the ad.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“So, I apologize to you,” he continued. “I don’t mean to revisit your nightmares. I’m sorry if that’s the effect it has.”

Cuomo apologized again at the end of the segment and vowed not to to show the clip again.

“I don’t care if it’s positive about how far we’ve come since 9/11. Whatever it is, I’m not going to show those images of that day. I know what they mean to the families. This happened quickly with this video, I won’t do it again,” Cuomo said.

    Cuomo apologizes for President Trump saying “WE WILL NEVER FORGET”, but doesn’t apologize for Omar trivializing 9/11? CNN is doomed. They are spiraling further and further into the dirt.
