Things have definitely gone from bad to worse at CNN headquarters in Atlanta. Here’s video of one of the protesters throwing a smoke grenade into the lobby of the building:

And then one of the protesters threw a flash-bang grenade or firework in as well while Nick Valencia was live talking to Chris Cuomo:

Valencia also says he was shot with a BB gun:

Cuomo has been doing play-by-play of the cops’ actions:

But that’s not going so well:
chris cuomo on some extreme bullshit saying a police officer who got hit with a cardboard sign was being "beaten"

WTF is he talking about?
For some reason, on CNN Chris Cuomo keeps referring to—& lamenting—unspecified "fringe media" that's characterizing the protests as just 'angry black people.'
— Avi Asher-Schapiro (@AASchapiro) May 30, 2020
He kept saying the phrase “angry blacks” over and over again, saying everyone else is saying it:
Who is saying it’s “Angry Blacks Running Tyrannically through the Streets”, @ChrisCuomo?
I’m dead serious.

Nope, just him:
Literally no one except Chris Cuomo just said it three times.
