With all the fanfare of a war hero coming home from Afghanistan, CNN showed Chris Cuomo’s “official re-entry” from the basement into society, as he emerged from his basement after the Cuomo Prime Time host celebrated his recovery from COVID-19.
“This—is what I’ve been dreaming of—literally for weeks,” Cuomo said, as he addressed his wife’s mild case of the Wuhan coronavirus. “This—is the dream. Just to be back up here,” the dramatic Cuomo said to the camera.

If that was Cuomo’s first time out of the basement (as he claims), then how was he involved in a confrontation with a “loser biker” in the Hamptons on Easter Sunday, over one week ago?
During his SiriusXM radio show, CNN anchor relayed an incident he had with a “loser biker” who confronted him on Easter Sunday for being outside his property with his family despite his coronavirus diagnosis.
“I don’t want some jackass, loser, fat tire biker being able to pull over and get in my space and talk bulls–t to me, I don’t want to hear it,” he said.
Cuomo said he wishes he could have acted like a regular Joe and told the biker to “go to hell.”
The biker, a self-identified lifetime Democrat, whose name is David, told The New York Post he was stunned that Cuomo verbally attacked him the way he did.
The 65-year-old longtime resident said he was just out for a bike ride before Easter dinner when he spotted who he thought was Chris Cuomo on property he says the CNN anchor bought in East Hampton last year. The acreage is still being developed; a steel frame for its future house is all that’s up at the moment, David said.
David said Cuomo was with his wife, another woman and three kids who were playing around on the property.
The resident said he stopped and sat on his bike “well over a hundred feet” from the property.
“I just looked and said, ‘Is that Chris Cuomo? Isn’t he supposed to be quarantined?’”
David said the woman who looked like Cuomo’s wife came over to him and said, “May I help you?”
He said he replied, “I’m riding my bike” — then started asking why Cuomo was there out of quarantine and not social-distancing from the group.
He said Cuomo then started toward him, coming to within about 40 feet.
“He said, ‘Who the hell are you?! I can do what I want!’” David said. “He just ranted, screaming, ‘I’ll find out who you are!’
“I said to him, ‘Your brother is the coronavirus czar, and you’re not even following his rules — unnecessary travel,’” the resident said.
“He just began to boil more.
“He said, ‘This is not the end of this. You’ll deal with this later. We will meet again.’ If that’s not a threat, I don’t know what is,” David said.
In other words, Cuomo’s “official re-entry” into society was not really the first time he emerged from the basement or even from his home, where the highly contagious Cuomo was supposed to be staying, as per his NY Governor brother’s mandate.
Comedian Mark Dice hilariously called out Cuomo and his “Fake News,” with This response:
Fake News. You emerged last week and went to the Hamptons, then threatened a senior citizen when he asked you why you violated NYs non-essential travel policy (and broke quarantine)

So, now that everyone knows that Chris Cuomo was not locked away in his basement while he had the Wuhan coronavirus, why the drama about his “re-entry” into society? Why would Cuomo and CNN go to all the trouble of deceiving his viewers about how he was suffering in his basement, unable to come upstairs and be around his family, when he wasn’t? Do CNN hosts even know what the truth is?
