The popular host of CNN's Cuomo Prime Time and SiriusXM's Let's Get After It sat down exclusively with renowned veterans advocate and Righteous Media President Paul Rieckhoff at the Classic Car Club Manhattan for an extended interview about the state of affairs in America, the White House assaults on the media, Trump's attacks on him personally, and the recent incident involving him that dominated headlines worldwide.

Video footage and the full transcript of the interview with Chris Cuomo are also available:

Cuomo talks candidly about the last few weeks under the media microscope and in the nasty crosshairs of Trump's Twitter account. He blasts The New York Post and Rupert Murdoch, defends Sean Hannity and shares stories of his Italian-American upbringing, parenthood, fishing, fitness and his very first car (it's an unforgettable one). Chris Cuomo is a guy millions know from TV. But he's also a father of three, a man of faith, and a dude who loves sports and working out. This episode will reveal a personal side of the Chris Cuomo that you've never heard before.

Paul Rieckhoff does what he does best. Asking probing questions of his guests and framing up the big picture of what's happening in America from a "ferociously independent" viewpoint. He rips through the most important stories you may have missed or need to know more about. The Army veteran, media personality and wide-respected author examines how Trump's tone has become insidiously invasive and contagious. And how on the one-year anniversary of Senator John McCain's death, that toxic tone is in direct contrast with leaders like John McCain, George Washington and Stephen Colbert. Rieckhoff also explores the violent and breaking news out of Afghanistan, digs into a tragic political fight that's hurting Gold Star families, and rips into why a focus on Greenland is sucking attention away from the American Marine veteran and journalist, Austin Tice, who was taken prisoner in Syria 7 years ago this month. And with football season coming soon, Rieckhoff analyzes the political importance of Vince McMahon's new XFL football league.

The new episode is a defining installment of the news, politics and interview podcast that was featured in Variety Magazine and is making waves nationwide. It's about much more than just being angry. It's an innovative show that matters. It's examining the great American experiment, and takes listeners behind the scenes of American politics and empowers them with information for their next conversation at work, on Twitter, or at the dinner table. Angry Americans is a show that delivers hope and leaves listeners inspired.
