CNN "New Day" co-host Chris Cuomo said Tuesday morning that being called "fake news" is comparable to an "ethnic disparagement."

Cuomo made the comment while responding to a tweet from President Donald Trump, who called out the CNN host for not asking Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D., Conn.) about him misrepresenting his military record in an earlier interview. Blumenthal previously lied about serving in Vietnam.

Trump called Cuomo "fake news" in his tweet.
