The biker who had a run-in with CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Easter Sunday spoke out (video below) about the angry confrontation on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
Biker David Whelan said that Cuomo resembled “a boiling pot” when he was confronted by Whelan for not self-quarantining because he had coronavirus.
Whelan told Tucker Carlson about the tense confrontation:
“It was Easter Sunday evening; it was chilly and cold. I grew up about 1,000 feet from where he is building his new house, which is nothing but a steel frame. I go by, down the trail that runs past where his new structure is being built, and there’s a bunch of people there. I’ve been riding for seven or eight miles, take a little break, and am just walking. And a woman says, ‘May I help you?’ I said, ‘No, I’m just looking.'”
Whelan says he saw Cuomo and remembered the CNN anchor had announced he’d tested positive for coronavirus. Whelan then asked Cuomo if he was supposed to be in self-quarantine. This angered Cuomo who said back to Whelan:
“What the hell do you know about this? What do you know about the rules?”
The confrontation didn’t end there. Whelan said Cuomo walked closer to him:
“He continued to come closer and closer, and I would like to say he’s like a boiling pot, you could see his head. He was just getting more and more angry. And I said, ‘So are you gonna lose your temper like you did on the guy at Shelter Island?'”
The Shelter island incident was an incident last year when Chris Cuomo got angry at a man who called him “Fredo.”
Whelan said he wanted to “move on” and that he noticed no one in the group with Cuomo had gloves or masks. The biker then said Cuomo threatened him again:
“But he told me he was going to meet me, and he goes ‘You are going to meet me over this, you will meet me again over this’. At that point, he’s now getting about 40 feet away.”
Carlson followed up by asking if Whelan had been tested for Coronavirus, but Whelan said regular Americans don’t get tested.
