U.S. President Donald Trump accused CNN host Chris Cuomo of not asking Sen. Richard Blumenthal about his prior comments regarding military service in Vietnam.
Chris Cuomo, in his interview with Sen. Blumenthal, never asked him about his long-term lie about his brave "service" in Vietnam. FAKE NEWS!

However, the President’s statements are false and it took Cuomo mere seconds to prove it.

Minutes after Trump’s tweet was posted, Cuomo, David Gregory, and Poppy Harlow read the President’s tweet out loud on the air, immediately debunking his claims with video.
“[That was] literally the first point I made in the interview. The president, with all due respect, is once again off on the facts. That’s not something that any of us have any desire to say on a regular basis, but it keeps being true.”
