CNN’s Cuomo to SNL: ‘You Guys Were Mean About Huckabee Sanders’

Monday on CNN’s “New Day,” co-host Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota reacted to this week’s “Saturday Night Live” skit featuring Melissa McCarthy playing White House press secretary Sean Spicer.

Cuomo said he did not care for the show depiction of White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, played by Aidy Bryant. Cuomo called it “mean” and accused the “Saturday Night Live” writers of “fat-shaming.”

“I will say this — you guys were mean about Huckabee Sanders,” Cuomo said. “You were fat-shaming her. You were talking about how she looks and what she wears. I thought that it was mean, not funny.”

“Were they?” Camerota asked. “I thought they were making fun of her clothes.”

“They were making fun of here,” Cuomo replied. “They had her eating. I thought it was in poor taste. I really did, but that’s me.”
