On CNN Tonight, anchors Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo sit silently for 13 seconds, imitating Trump

At the top of CNN Tonight with Don Lemon, the CNN anchor encouraged Chris Cuomo, of Cuomo Prime Time, to stay on screen past the handoff and re-enact President Donald Trump’s 13-second pause from a rally in North Carolina as his crowd chanted “Send her back,” referencing Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.

“So, Chris, remember when you first started out on TV — the worst thing you could do, especially if you’re an anchor, was have silence. Silence, right, everyone is afraid of silence, which can be very powerful on television.” He started his countdown clock. “So, just don’t say anything.”
