CNN Chris Cuomo on Thursday tried to discredit President Trump’s claim about the difficulty in overhearing two sides of a phone conversation without a speakerphone with a live, on-air experiment.
“Very interesting theory from our president that he has really good hearing, some would say, the best hearing ever, and he’s never been able to hear a phone call when it wasn’t on speakerphone from anybody,” the veteran newsman said during CNN’s live coverage while the impeachment hearing was recessed before calling his mother.
The article goes on to state the following:
“So, let’s just play with that for a second. Mom, can you hear me? All right. So if I were holding the phone here, I’m with Dana Bash, you know how you’re always telling me to let her talk because she’s so smart and I shouldn’t say so much,” he said, referring to Dana Bash, who serves as CNN’s chief political correspondent.
Trump had tweeted, “I have been watching people making phone calls my entire life. My hearing is, and has been, great. Never have I been watching a person making a call, which was not on speakerphone, and been able to hear or understand a conversation. I’ve even tried, but to no avail. Try it live!”
Cuomo did. Watch what happened:
Because we are in the absolute dumbest timeline, Chris Cuomo calls his mom on live TV to disprove Trump’s claim and demonstrate to viewers that bystanders can hear a caller on the other line…and we only hear his mother when he puts her on speaker. pic.twitter.com/Bif8QsmPHb

CNN’s Cuomo trying to prove you can hear a conversation on another person’s cell phone (while on speaker, mind you) is the most ill-advised thing we’ve witnessed on live TV since Marcia Clark had OJ try the gloves on. Check with this video out: https://t.co/EK3GYVtnce
