Chris Cuomo: Offering ‘Thoughts and Prayers’ Only ‘Mock Those Who Lost Loved Ones’
‘Think and pray on that’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:

CUOMO: "The central question the same way. And here's the question. Can we do better than this? You know the answer is yes. You know the damn answer is yes. So why don't we? We can't even have a conversation. The only consensus there is is in a canard, and here it is. First, I would like to offer my thoughts and prayers. Because that's what you do when you offer thoughts and prayers. You mock those who lost loved ones. Because if you gave it any thought at all, you would never walk away from any of these without figuring out a better way to deal with them. And prayer. You think leaving it to god is the answer? We pray for strength, we pray for wisdom, for resolve, but we clearly don't want to act on any of those here. So what are you praying for? What would it take? How about a stadium full of children of the most influential people in our society all holding puppies? Wat if they were all shot and killed? would we act? Oh, don't be ridiculous to suggest something -- is it? Is it ridiculous? More ridiculous than doing nothing? Time after time after time? Listening to these people pouring out their pain, crying along with them, saying you care. You know the answer to the only question that matters. We can do better. And we all have to live with doing nothing. And the next time is coming. and more and more, you, me, our leaders, we're all becoming part of the problem. think and pray on that.”
