  1. I am a commoner from NY. I don’t watch news or tv but I started watching tv recently because of the Covid situation . As I become Mr.Cuomos big fan, also I noticed CNN is the worst channel all I hear is how bad president is. For instance if
    somebody in Atlanta wants to go for a walk and they will blame it to president saying
    It was his fault that he did not take some action —- I don’t understand what action CNN thinks he should take.
