One of CNN’s top hosts, Chris Cuomo, has recovered from the Wuhan virus and is speaking out about his future with the low-ratings, anti-Trump, cable news network.
The younger brother of Democrat New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who has been accused of living in the shadow of his brother’s successful political career, had an existential mini-crisis on his SiriusXM show on Monday night.
The New York Post reported about how he CNN host lashed out at his lucrative primetime gig and blasting President Trump as “full of s–t.”
If Cuomo can sum up President Trump in one vulgar sentence, why then, on February 5, 2020, did CNN’s Chris Cuomo praise President Trump and his SOTU speech?
“Those were some really poignant moments. I don’t know if you saw them, but you should go online and look. The president in that speech tonight celebrated what the country is about from one set of moments, our diversity, how we overcome, how we come together.
Is that what he’s really about [or] something for them to use as a sword and shield? I don’t know. Here’s one thing I know. This country is not just a sum of the actions of its politicians,” Cuomo said about Trump’s SOTU speech.
“I don’t want to spend my time doing things that I don’t think are valuable enough to me personally,” Cuomo said. “I don’t value indulging irrationality, hyper-partisanship.”
Cuomo said his battle with COVID-19 has made him rethink his values and question his position as a public figure.
“I don’t like what I do professionally,” he said. “I don’t think it’s worth my time.”
Chris Cuomo, brother of NY Governor Andrew Cuomo and CNN anchor, who regularly calls out President Trump for his unpresidential behavior and brash tweets, was caught on tape in an embarassing confrontation, that earned him the new nickname, “Fredo.” The video quickly went viral.
In the video, Cuomo can be seen confronting a man who allegedly called him, “Fredo,” the “weak brother” from “The Godfather” movie. After Cuomo identified himself as an anchor on CNN, he explained why he was offended by the term, saying, “they use it as an Italian aspersion.” Cuomo asked the men in the video, “Are any of you Italian?” he asked. “It’s a f*cking insult to your people. It’s an insult to your f*cking people!”
The man in the video can be heard telling Cuomo that he’s a “much more reasonable in person” that he “seems to be on television.” Cuomo ignored him, and responded like a bully, “Yeah, you wanna play, then we’ll f*cking play!”
“Hey man, hey, listen, I don’t know what your problem is!” the man in the video responded. The CNN anchor came back at him.”What the f*ck, you call me “Fredo, it’s like I call you, ‘punk bitch.’ You like that?”
The man in the video explained, “I thought your name was…”Cuomo snapped back, “You did not think my name was f*cking Fredo, don’t be a liar. If you wanna be a man, stand up like a man.
The man attempted over and over to calm him down. The highly agitated Cuomo threatened him saying, “I’ll f*cking ruin your shit. I’ll f*cking throw you down these f*cking stairs like a f*cking punk!”
