CNN’s Chris Cuomo referred to an Indian-American in the Trump administration in a racially insensitive way on Monday because he could not pronounce his last name.
During a discussion about the fallout from Trump’s supposed “s***hole” remark, Cuomo referred to White House aide Raj Shah as Raj “whatever his name is.”
“We went to the White House when it happened, and Raj whatever his name is didn't back off the words,” Cuomo said.
The Washington Free Beacon pointed out that this not the first time that CNN has botched correctly identifying Shah. In December, they published a graphic during a televised segment of a quote from Shah but used a picture of former Obama official Rajiv Shah.
