According to a report published by the Daily Wire,
“CNN host Chris Cuomo said Republicans “are bringing up this Three-Fifths Compromise stuff for a reason” during the 10 p.m. hand-off from Don Lemon.”
“The common view was that enumerated by Lemon on his Wednesday show, that the agreement “explicitly counted slaves as three-fifths of a free person, or three-fifths of a man so that the slave states would be able to accrue more political power without having to count a slave as a full person.”
“The Three-Fifths Compromise was a direct effort to ensure that Southern states never got the population necessary to continue the practice of slavery everywhere else in the country,” Rep. Lafferty said.
“By limiting the number of population in the count, they specifically limited the number of representatives that would be available in the slave-holding states, and they did it for the purpose of ending slavery.”
A Tennessee lawmaker falsely suggested the infamous and racist 3/5ths compromise was to help end slavery.

Joseph didn’t take the bait — unlike fellow CNN host Chris Cuomo, who began the 10 p.m. hand-off by hinting at a conspiracy behind Republicans accurately discussing history.
“They are bringing up this Three-Fifths Compromise stuff for a reason,” Cuomo said. “It’s something pernicious and wicked that they’re trying to do.”
“Is it white supremacy? What is it?” asked Don Lemon.
“I don’t know what their end game is,” Cuomo admitted.
