CNN host Chris Cuomo said he’s aware of multiple scandals plaguing his brother New York Governor Andrew Cuomo but said he cannot cover them since the two are brothers, according to The Daily Wire.
“Before we start tonight, let me say something that I’m sure is very obvious to you who watch my show,” Cuomo said.
“Obviously, I’m aware of what’s going on with my brother. And obviously I cannot cover it because he is my brother,” Cuomo continued. “Now, of course, CNN has to cover it. They have covered it extensively, and they will continue to do so.”
Governor Cuomo was accused by a third woman of sexual harassment; Anna Ruch said that she met the governor at a wedding in 2019, where he called her “aggressive” for removing his hand from her lower back and took her face in his hands and asked if he could kiss her.
Chris Cuomo said he has “always cared very deeply about these issues and profoundly,” and that “there’s a lot of news going on that matters also, so let’s get after that.”
“I just wanted to tell you that,” he added.

Cuomo proceeded to cover a range of topics unrelated to the head-spinning news cycle dogging his brother, including former President Trump’s CPAC speech, and Democrats potentially raising the minimum wage, and spent nearly five minutes toward the end of his show wishing fellow CNN anchor Don Lemon a happy birthday.
In spring last year, during the dog days of the pandemic in New York City, Cuomo frequently invited his brother on his show during which they exchanged light-hearted banter, joking about who was their mother’s favorite and how big of a Q-tip Governor Cuomo would need for a coronavirus test.
Since then, Chris Cuomo appears to have opted only to air neutral or positive coverage of his brother on his show.
