Hey Chris: it’s the difference between a photo of someone robbing a safe, and a photo of an empty safe . . .
The allegations against former Trump aide Rob Porter are serious. There is reason to believe that he physically abused his former wives.
That said, Chris Cuomo has ignored a big difference in the photos involved in the two cases. On CNN this morning, Chris Cuomo said that Pres. Trump is “playing favorites,” given his strong reaction to the photo of Al Franken groping a woman and his muted reaction to the photo of a former wife of Trump aide Rob Porter with a black eye.
Cuomo ignores the fact that in the Franken photo, we see him actually groping the woman. In the second, we see only the wife. Rob Porter is not seen. There might well be other evidence substantiating the wife’s allegations. But a photo of someone with a black eye does not prove who caused it.
